2006 Passat 3.6 Relay J271 ECU Location Look Everywhere But Cant Seem To Locate

if there is no legend on the relay cluster cover makes it very hard to locate

J271 varies from model to model, but once you have the relay out, check one of its sides for the diagram of the pin outs. The solenoid 12V supply will always be marked as 85, the negative always as 86, the normally open (N/O) contact as 87, the normally closed (N/C) as 87a and the pin marked 30 is always the switching voltage supply. Notice that terminals of 87 and 30 are always larger than the other terminals. Connect the relay solenoid to a battery with clip leads and measure the voltage at 87 and 87a, and that it changes over when you hear the relay click. Alternatively do a continuity test between pin 30 and 87, then again between 30 and 87a. Then connect power to the solenoid and the continuity measurement should switch over to the other pin. Unlike the image above, there may be even be more than 1 double pole double throw switch contacts on the relay depending on the model of your car. The Audi J271 is different to some VW's and has more terminals.

just look at the way VW put relay clusters into a passat ..what a mess

I have had fault code p2146 which is power supply injection valves bank 1 open circuit and p1517 which is main relay come up and the car is not sarting. i replaced the head gasket and water pump as the oil...

i think you have not reconnected a multiplug somewhere on the engine thats all their is to it something you have touched is causing this problem and without a good look myself i honestly couldnt say what the problem is but its something stupid like either a bad connection in a multiplug or you have just forget to re-connect one

What is code p1517 on my 2008 tdi passat

Hi there,

Code P1517 is specific to VW (P0 = generic code), so this code must be retrieved specifically from VW's DTC list.

This code relates to a malfunction in your Engine (MAIN) Control Relay circuit

Please note that I said "Circuit". This doesn't neccessarily mean the Control Relay itself is faulty (although this component will also need to be tested), but means you may need to test every component related to this circuit, and also other related circuts.

Engine turns over but wont start p1517 code logged in engine ecu

Main Relay Malfunction. This one could be tricky. Could be as simple as that main relay is bad. If it was it could cause an intermittent no start. It is located in your ECM box at the base of your windshield. I don't remember off the top of my head WHICH one in there it is. And there are 3 or 4 sometimes. So you will have to figure out which one. Take it out. There is a diagram on it. Test it according to the relay diagram. If it works then it might be something different. I have seen a lot of other problems (bad ground, bad battery, ignition switch, and more) cause that relay fault. So it can be tricky.
