Firstly have the engine codes reset, if the light returns then you could have a fault in the wire, as you have replaced the sensor i would not check this but faulty sensor's are a possibility. However i would check the voltage to the sensor first.

P1296 Problem(vw jetta 2001 wolfsburg edition)


There is a common fault with the cam belt driven waterpump on VAG engines as they use a plastic water-drive. The water-drive on the pump shaft breaks up or free and no longer circulates the water. Replace water pump.

Replace with the new version of the sensor, clear the code.

If indicated coolant temp' is too low the thermostat is sticking open.

2002 vw jetta engine code 1296. what does it mean.




My 2001 Jetta GLS Check engine light is on and I am getting 2 trouble codes P0171 and P1296. What does this mean? My temp gage is also reading nothing at all. 1 more thing I noticed when my low fuel light came on the other day my temp gage began to work but when I filled up with gas the temp gage went to zero again.

P1296 indicates that the car isn't warming up fast enough or at all. Determine if the gauge is faulty by checking the temp of the engine with an infrared thermometer. A healthy engine should operate at 190-200 deg. F fully warmed up. It may be that the gauge is accurate and your engine isn't reaching optimal temp because of a faulty thermostat. It also could be that the engine is actually warm and the gauge is wrong. Use the search feature, we've gone over this one a few times. Also note that P1296 has been mis defined a few times too. P0171 has been discussed here a million times. Check the trouble codes section and the search box.
,,,,, I pulled this off of the OBD home page, It is a close shot for your car, Hope it helps.

Did you check your fan clutch? If it runs hot running around town, but cools going down the road this could be it. also check radiator for obstructions like bugs or bent fins.

I had the check engine light come on last night. The DTC code was P1296. I reset the light and it has not come back on so far. Should I expect any problems?


P1296 Malfunction in Cooling System
To Properly diagnose this problem, you will need to retrieve freeze frame data from the vehicle. If the temp at the time was -40 then the coolant temp sensor is faulty, if the temp was around 78 C then the problem is the thermostat, and if the temp was high the problem could be the water pump. Freeze frame data required and expanded OBD II scanner to retrieve.

The two things that will set this DTC is a defective Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor or the thermostat. This would cause the symptoms you described to me.

Good luck and Merry Xmass
