Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Need Help! check engine light

My leased 2000 New Beetle is due to be returned soon. My check engine light is on, apparently, it's a faulty o2 sensor. (They hooked my car up to the computer a few months ago for a different reason, and warned that the light would be comin on soon). I don't have the cash to pay for this repair. If the light isn't on when the car gets inspected, then I could be okay. Aside from the obvious moral issues involved here, is there a way to turn the light off so its not on for the inspection? cheers Susan 2001 jetta air bag light on engine light on automatic transmission will not shift into high gear

Why does po131 keep returning after i replaced bank 1 02 sensor ? i clear codes and en about a week code returns data looks good


See causes
P0131 OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description

Oxygen O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank 1, Sensor 1)
What does that mean? Essentially the same as P0136 and P0137, a P0131 code refers to the first oxygen sensor on Bank 1.
P0131 means the O2 oxygen sensor's voltage remained low for longer than 2 minutes. This, is interpreted by the ECM as a low voltage condition and sets the MIL. Bank 1 Sensor 1 is located in front of the catalytic converter.
Symptoms There may be no visible symptoms to the driver, other than the MIL (Check Engine / Service Engine Soon) illumination.
Causes A code P0131 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • Faulty o2 oxygen sensor
  • Short to voltage on O2 signal circuit
  • High resistance or open on O2 signal circuit
Possible Solutions
  • Replace faulty sensor
  • Repair short, open, or high resistance on o2 signal circuit

Hi, I have a 98 Honda Accord Ex V6 that showed the P0420 code and I was told that the catalytic converter needs to be replaced. So I replaced it and the check engine light came on with the P0401 code. I...


The error code p0420 does not rise only due to faulty catalytic converter but may also rise due to one of following reason:

1. Faulty rear O2 sensor

2. Damaged O2 sensor wiring

3. Exhaust leak

The error code p0401 indicates faulty Engine Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve. The remedy to the problem is:

a. Replace EGR valve

b. Repair damaged wiring of EGR valve

c. Clean the EGR valve tubing

White smoke out the tailpipe ?


Coolant level diminishing? Check to see if coolant is getting into the oil. Pull dipstick and check underneath oil cap as well. Look for a frothy brown/tan consistency. If so, head gasket is faulty. DO NOT drive the car. Other problems will be created.

White smoke is caused by coolant getting into the head cylinders and mixing with gas to be ignited.

Service engine soon light P1152 code


Most likely a one of the o2 sensors are causing this problem. What you need to do is a get a repair manual and do some pin tests on the O2's and figure out which one is faulty.

Essentially the same as P0136, P0137 refers to the second oxygen sensor on Bank 1. P0137 means the O2 oxygen sensor's voltage remained low for longer than 2 minutes. This, is interpreted by the ECM as a low voltage condition and sets the MIL. Bank 1 Sensor 2 is located to the rear of the catalytic converter and should produce an output signal relative to oxygen storage capacity of the catalytic converter. This rear (sensor 2) sensor is less active than the signal produced by the front sensor. However, if the ECM senses the sensor is inactive, this code will set.

Symptoms There may be no visible symptoms to the driver, other than the MIL (Check Engine / Service Engine Soon) illumination.

Causes
A code P0137 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty O2 sensor Exhaust leak near the rear sensor
  • Plugged catalyst
  • Short to voltage on O2 signal circuit
  • High resistance or open on O2 signal circuit

  • Possible Solutions
  • Replace faulty sensor
  • Repair exhaust leak near the rear sensor
  • Check for restriction in catalyst and replace as necessary
  • Repair short, open, or high resistance on o2 signal circuit
The other code is your crankshaft position sensor. You need to replace both of the sensors and the check engine light will go off.

Failed smog inspection due to fuel cap. SEEMS SO SIMPLE. AM I REALLY ONLY GOING TO REPLACE THE FUEL CAP?


Yes. The evaporative emission system is comprised of a cannister to capture and store gas vapors, a purge valve solenoid that opens when certain engine conditions are met, and purges the vapors from the cannister to be burned in the combustion process rather than being released into the atmosphere, A key component of this system is the plain, old ordinary gas cap. If the cap was faulty it could cause problems in the evap system, which apparently caused you to fail the smog test. Hope this helped and best wishes.

If the light goes out after engine gets alittle warm, this is normal. Since there is no temp guage, VW uses this light to inform that the engine is cold. When that same light flashes red, it means that the coolant is low or the engine is overheating.

VW new Beetle


OK, it sounds like the battery is dead flat, or just dead. First thing to check is the voltage on the battery - if it is 12 to 13v it might just need recharging, but if it is a lot less it could be due for replacement.
You should be able to get it running by getting it jump started using cables from another car. When you get the engine running again check that no interior lights stay on after you close the door, and that no audio systems or other electrical items have been left on.

If the battery is more than three years old, it is probably just worn out, but if it is a lot newer, come back with more info and I will try to help you further.

I take it you have a "real" key to get you inside so you can open the hood / bonnet?

Hope this helps a bit to start with. D.
