The fuel relay switch (under the steering colom) or main power switch (behind the key/ignition) could be a problem.

What does the glow lamp warning indicator on a 2003 VW Polo mean?


It may mean a glow plug fault or a brake light switch fault. You need computer software to interrogate the engine management.

P1568 code


no symotoms.? how many miles on car 50k or 250k miles>?
no other DTC, did you use scan tool? and one that read ALL VW DTC. if not FAIL. you will.

how can I fix.?
you want to fix the car or the TB?
most cars, its a new TB.
im not VW savvy, (can fix any car) but not their policies.
anyone can go to vw.com and to the parts page and see what is sold
anyone. just do it.
my guess, is you didnt read the FSM yet, on this failure
why not? it explains how to isolate the true cause.
4th generation and 5 sub types. from FUN to blue motion.....

P1568
got others?>

* VW DTC 17579 (P1171) - Throttle Actuation Potentiometer Signal 2 Range/Performance
* VW DTC 17950 (P1542) - Throttle Actuation Potentiometer Range/Performance
* VW DTC 17953 (P1545) - Throttle Position. Contr Malfunction
* VW DTC 17976 (P1568) - Idle Speed Control; Throttle Position - Mechanical Malfunction

so what does it mean.
it means idle can not be controls for any of many reasons.
the tech makes sure the engine runs ok, is in closed loop hot.
if not we fix that first , because misfiring or bogging engines the idle can be impossible to control.
then check that the throttle butterfly plat is not sticking (clean it)
if the throttle motor sticks the motor is bad. end of live for TB.
my guess is you dont have a scan tool, am I right>?

fixing cars with out one, is a bad idea.
engines can go lean and stall or surge.
engines can go rich misfire and stall.
we make sure that is not happening first and
the law is, IDLE is the last thing to work right on all EFI engines.
hell carbs. (ever get a vacuum leak with a carb ,it stalls)

I have a 2007 Suzuki xl7. When I first start down the road it seems to drive fine but within 1/2 to 1 mile it starts running very rough, leaping along. This goes for about another 1 to 3 miles. It runs...


ok and XL 7 but what engine options. gas, diesel, 2L , 2.5L?
what?
and most important , and never ever 1 time stated on this forum
what country.
leaping?

im not sure what you are saying.
it runs ok cold, and as it warms , the engine. it stalls.?
and what does same thing mean.?
my guess, it starts fine then stalls; hot.
but can you save the stall?

stalling is complex. can be many systems in the car.
but can be broken down to :
Ever did the 60k mile tune up,ever? if not why not.
never skip 60k\'s or the motor will run like garbage.


1: lost electrical power. to EFI .
2: bad engine, in that when it gets hot , it loses compression.
3: lost park. 1 or more cylinders, 4 or 6 you never said.
4: bad injection. 1 or 6 of them, flooding or starving.
5: bad fuel.
6:EGR sticking , usually this happens just before a stop sign.
7: if the stall was a bog and the fast right foot saved the stall, easy
the ISC is sticking closed.

Vw polo 1997 999cc often idles eratically


First- lets change engine coolant sensor/ECT/ and you will be very surprised.Black head with four pins.Be very carefull when change it because there is pressure into coolant system.First-open slowly the cap of engine coolant tank.Then tighten again to safe coolant.Unplug the sensor,remove the pin and pull out the sensor.If the "O"ring/old one/ is still inside-take it out.

Why does my 91 VW Jetta stall out and lose power while driving?


I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.
