Both of these codes indicate trouble with the signal from the coolant temperature sensor.

So either the sensor is bad. The thermostat is not working properly and the coolant temperature is truly way out. The wiring to the sensor is short or open. The computer is bad and it is manifesting itself through this fault.

Does the car warm up properly? If it runs hot, or takes forever to warm up, this indicates a problem with the thermostat.

If the car runs at the proper temperature the next thing to look at is the coolant temp sensor and wiring. Some resistance values for VWs are here:

P1296


Found this online: "After doing some research on line and from some of you on this blog, P1296 is a temperature sensor malfunction... After mouths of aggravating repairs and replacements of parts, it turns out to be as very simple fix.
NOTE: If your gti/jetta is approaching 100K miles, to save yourself some time and possible future high repair costs, start replacing as many plastic/rubber (hoses) components as possible. Tooling around in my engine I had some plastic/rubber hoses that have seen better days. From my research, most of the replacement parts unfortunately are only available at the dealer... I take very good care of my gti and love to drive it as much as I can... But I am very frustrated that VW would use so many plastic components on a car that cost more $24K... Replacing the temp sensor, I noticed the location of the sensor in a plastic elbow section...Now that is a big problem in my book because once a crack forms in that section there goes all your coolant and possibly your engine... Take it from me and inspect every plastic/rubber hose or component the engine has, and hopefully it will save you some time and $$$ in the long run..."

How do you fix the p1296 manufacturer specific code for a 2002 volkswagen jeta car with a 2.0 engine


P1296 is a coolant system fault code. It could be the thermostat, or the coolant temp sensor.
Either the thermostat is stuck or the coolant temp sensor is bad.
The coolant temp sensors have a reputation for going bad.

2002 vw jetta engine code 1296. what does it mean.




My 2001 Jetta GLS Check engine light is on and I am getting 2 trouble codes P0171 and P1296. What does this mean? My temp gage is also reading nothing at all. 1 more thing I noticed when my low fuel light came on the other day my temp gage began to work but when I filled up with gas the temp gage went to zero again.

P1296 indicates that the car isn't warming up fast enough or at all. Determine if the gauge is faulty by checking the temp of the engine with an infrared thermometer. A healthy engine should operate at 190-200 deg. F fully warmed up. It may be that the gauge is accurate and your engine isn't reaching optimal temp because of a faulty thermostat. It also could be that the engine is actually warm and the gauge is wrong. Use the search feature, we've gone over this one a few times. Also note that P1296 has been mis defined a few times too. P0171 has been discussed here a million times. Check the trouble codes section and the search box.
,,,,, I pulled this off of the OBD home page, It is a close shot for your car, Hope it helps.
