Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 2000 vw passat will not pass inspection because of codes, the check engine light has always been on. what do i do?

The battery has been replaced. The check engine light has always been, but in the past the garages have managed to get it off and inspected. This time the garage told me there is 3 codes that came up, they said they have been trying to pass it without having to put to much money in it, but there labor hours are putting in enough. Can someone please help me out?.. give me any tips or something so I can get my car inspected soon.

Yes, fix it.
When the check engine light is on it's in limp home mode. Means it goes to set values and runs poorly...
also, check local/state laws. they may have a grandfather clause that states after you invest a certain amount of money, they will pass it...

p1545 is a throttle control malfuction code

You can try to reset the throttle body by opening the hood and drivers door then turning your key to the accessory position. You will hear the throttle body whir and click. It may take up to two minutes. Afterward, the car will relearn your habit of driving and adjust accordingly.

I researched this & you need to replace the throttle body gasket & get the throttle body re-calibrated. Seems to be dealer only. Also, the t.p.s. (throttle position sensor) could be bad.

2000 Passat DTC P0411


I have a 2000 Passat (1.8T), and I recently had this code (P0411). First thing I did was to clean the mass airflow sensor (MAF) and reset the code by disconnecting the battery. Unfortunately, the code came back. It also came back with P1426. It ended up being the purge valve ($60 at ECSTuning, $140 at the dealer...I went with ECSTuning). Before you drop money on the part, inspect all of the hoses to ensure they are not cracked or torn.
