The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple

SOURCE: Code error P1361 Honda CIvic LX 2002

P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from Engine-Light-Help.com)
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.

Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.

SOURCE: my 2002 vw passat's esp light comes on when you

Sounds like you're not running on all 4 cylinders all the time. Could be one or more dirty spark plugs, bad ignition coils, etc. You'll ruin the engine when you don't get it fixed quickly, even after repairing you might notice a significant hp-decrease.

My advice would be to take it to the dealer asap and have them troubleshoot. Since they can read the faultcodes from the car's ECU, it should give a good pointer to the cause.

My 2002 VW Passat the engine light flashes, then it loses power and the brakes wood hardly work.


The engine light will flash when one of the coils goes bad. The engine light will stop flashing when the coil works again (if the coil stays bad, the light will ultimately go on full time). Once the engine has lost a cylinder, it will run very rough, and probably not generate sufficient vacuum to run the vacuum booster which is how the brakes are assisted in a power brake system. Fixing the bad coil should fix both problems.

I am pasting my comment from another solution I wrote regarding coils... it's all important info:

The catalytic converter will glow red hot when it is burning unburned fuel from the cylinders. One very probably cause is that one of the cylinders is not firing because it has a bad coil. If that is the case, the engine should be running very rough. To find out which coil... either get the engine code read, or unplug the wire from the coil and see if the engine does not run any rougher (put the plug back on quickly because that is more fuel not being burned. Replace that coil with new one from auto parts store (about $30).

IMPORTANT... do not try to figure out what coil is bad by unplugging the coil itself from the spark plug... if you touch the side of the cylinder head with the bottom of the coil, you will short it out and have to buy another one (I speak from experience).

RECOMMENDED - buy one extra coil and keep it in the car. Whenever your car starts to run very rough and have low powerlb_icon1.png, pull over and replace the bad one. It takes 5 minutes tops, and only needs a dime to get the engine cover off. No other tools necessary (well... something to move the connector lock).

2004 vw passat yellow engine icon came on, non flashing what could be casues?


That is the Check Engine Light. It indicates there is a problem with the emissions system. Can be as simple as a loose gas cap or more serious. If the engine is not running correctly then have this looked at immediately. If however the engine is running good then you do not have to be in a hurry. Have the ECU scanned at most auto parts stores for free. They will retrieve a code that has been set. This code will tell you what part is being effected and help to lead you in the direction of the problem. Do not just throw parts at the problem. You may in the end be much better off taking it to a professional for diagnosis and repair.

VW Passat estate 99 T reg. From start up continual misfire and lack of power until engine is warm. Once warm fault becomes intermittent. There are no warning light on dash. I have replaced HT leads with no...


There may be no check engine light but that doesn't mean there isn't a code in the ECU. Especially with a misfire. I'd have the codes scanned and see what you got. The cannister issue isn't going to give you a misfire it will give you stalling and rough idle.
Lets see what ECU is saying. You can go to Autozone if you don't have a scanner they will scan it for free. If scanning turns out negative than have a cylinder leakage test done. This way we can determine which cylinder has the problem and what the problem is.

VW PASSAT 03 V6. EPC AND TRACTION LIGHT COME ON INTERMITTANTLY.


First, to read VW codes you will want to get yourself a $50 VAG tool. It will read all your systems, not just the ECU.
Electronic Power Control can go out for several reasons. Check your brake lights with the car running. Check you radiator fluid level. If the car is running bad, you could have bad spark plugs/ wires or ignition coil.
The traction control is tied into the ABS system and often causes problems here as well. Each wheel has a speed sensor and magnet wheel in the hub. You can check these for damage by removing the tires for access. The sensors come out by hand, and inside the hole they come out of is the place to check the magnets with a flash light. Apply a small amount of wheel bearing grease to the sensor.
The control unit goes out in these systems at an alarming rate. They can be easily removed, and repaired for under $200 at modulemaster.com
Since it is intermit, I suspect most likely a loose sensor, or electrical connector.
If your brakes feel squishy at all, bleed the brake lines of air and contaminants.
Good Luck!

99 vw passat, when running, MIL lite, on car vibrates- shakes


no flashing light and rough shaking will be part of spark plug but also a very bad miss fire. I am going to guess that your engine is a 1.8t if so you have 4 coils that sit on top of your spark plugs that most likely are arcing you will need to figure out which coil is failing or you can save yourself the trouble and replace all 4 and the spark plugs. before you do that though check your wireing going to your coils look for broken wires or the ground that is next to the #1 coil that is the one closest to the front of the motor and you. hope that helps. that will be the start to fixing your issue also when you pull out the spark plug look down the hole first and make sure that there is not oil in the bottom of the hole if that is the case you will need a valve cover gasket as well. good luck hope that helps

2001 passat has loss of power, shaking and check engine light flashing


i had this problem on my 2002 passat. it was the ignition coils. first set were replaced in 2002 as a vw recall. second set (at 122K miles) were relatively inexpensive to fix. just one failed but it made the engine run really rough - my mechanic was able to move it from one cylinder to the next to get the problem to repeat.
