Flashing codes 15,54,83


CODE 15
Trouble Code 15 indicates that the Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS) is reporting abnormally low readings. CTS is used to control fuel mixture, timing, idle speed, TCC and EGR operation, among others. The thermistor used has a high-resistance when cold, lowering as the coolant warms.
Code 15 will set if:
- temperature reported is < -37.30 deg F (-38.5 deg C)

Typical causes may include:
1. Open circuit in CTS-ECM harness
2. Defective Coolant Temperature Sensor
3. Open sensor ground circuit
4. Defective ECM

2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.

My 2000 Jetta TDI blows cold air while driving. No fun this winter! I would expect a bad thermostat; but I understand if the thermostat is bad a warning light would be lit on the dash. Is that the case?
