The check engine light indicates that the power control module, which is the computer that controls your cars engine, has detected some event that it is not supposed to. This could be caused by any number of things from a dirty air filter, bad sensors, or dirty spark plugs. You need a OBDI scan tool to read the codes from the computer to see exactly what event the PCM has detected. Once you know what the code is, you'll have a better idea how to fix it.

Any qualified mechanic will have an OBDI scan tool, and many places such as Auto Zone will read the codes for you for free.

I have a 2000 beetle tdi it started whining when


I'm shooting in the dark but that's what it sounds like----I think with all the pollution factory issues this should be covered by the MFG. Another is blown head gasket but that would show coolant in oil or vise versa. GL

My 2002 Bettle TDI has very black oil after 5000 km Why?


City driving is about the hardest thing you can do to engine oil. If your primary driving is city driving it would be advisible to cut the oil change duration by a third to help keep it clean.

Check the fuses, and especially the glow plugs fuse.
The diesel fuel could also be contaminated with water, in which case the filter may need to be flushed.

according to haynes beetle repair the code is turbocharger boost pressure control valve positive deviation. to trouble shoot
check the wiring, connecting pipes.using a hand held vacuum pump apply vacuum to the wastegate actuator,(with engine not running) check the actuator arm and lever for freedom of movement , disconnect the electrical connector from the boost pressure control valve. using an ohmmeter check the solenoid windings for an open circuit, the boost pressure control valve should measure about 25 to 35 ohms if excessive resistance or open circuit is indicated replace control valve.
a scan tool is required for a complete diagnosis of the system control circuits some may be rented from a local auto repair store hope this helps and norrows it down for ya
