Its a code related to the turbo bypass valve. There is a spring loaded diaphragm inside the valve that is known to rupture.

SOURCE: 1997 VW Passat trouble code

Hi ejj509,

Both my 97 Passat and my wife's 99 Passat were throwing the same OBD codes you listed.

Both VW's had the same problem. There is no "quick" solution for the problem. I can tell you what I found, what I had to do and how I repaired both vehicles so they no longer throw this OBD error code.

I removed the black plastivc AIR pump and found that three of the six aluminum rivets which hold the AIR pump impeller housing together had rotted off so the case was leaking air. I went to a hardware store with one of the aluminum rivets I had removed from the AIR pump and bought six brass machine screws and brass nuts. I gouged the aluminum rivets out and replaced them with the brass machine screws.

After I had replaced the AIR pump in the VW, I cleared the codes and ran the diagnostics again.
It still threw the same codes!!!

Next, I removed the plastic top engine cover from the VW engine (VR6) and located the many air solenoids hidden under the cover. I went to a local NAPA shop and purchased an eight foot length of their smallest gauge neoprene gas line (1/8 inch ID).

I carefully removed each piece of rotted VW vacuum line from the air solenoids and replaced each rotted section with lengths of the new neoprene gas line. I had to follow out each of the old vacuum lines and replace them because they were badly deteriorated. This took about five hours to accomplish.

I replaced the plastic engine cover and connected up my cable from my laptop to the VW's computer port, cleared all of the codes and ran a new scan. This time the scan was clear! Woo Hoo! Apparently, the problem was both the leaking AIR pump and faulty, deteriorated (cheap) Volkswagen vacuum lines.

It was well worth the effort. My driveway has now become a bonafied VW repair shoppe.

SOURCE: VW P421 code

This is a common problem with V6 Passats. VW put out a TSB on this a few years ago.
The code is telling you that your catalytic converter (driver's side, I think) is bad. It's more than likely not bad.

VW put out a TSB on this a few years ago. TSB 05-13. The cause of the error code is basically an over sensitive ECU (computer of car/engine) and the fix is to have your ECU flashed with the latest and greatest software. Depending on your mileage they might do it under warranty - you'll have to check.

It's still possible that it might be a bad catalytic converter - and the dealership might try to tell you that either way. Call VW (1-800-822-8987) and ask them about the TSB (I couldn't find it online).

Tell the dealership you want the ECU flashed - it's much much cheaper than a cat. No sense replacing it if it's not bad
There is a federal warranty on catalytic converters - 8 yrs or 80k miles...

Hope this helps!
Please rate/vote for me!

Trouble code p000a on 06 vw passat. can i drive with this code or will it cause more damage to the car


Cam shaft positioner malfunction. You can drive it. Just have bad gas mileage. Probably run rough to. If it starts making a bunch of chattering noise, time to have it fixed. I wouldn't take it on any long trips either.

What would make a miss in 2001 vw beetle have changed spark plugs and two coil packs check engine light stopped flashing but is still on


Have the car computer scanned for trouble codes. Hopefully the codes will identify the problem. Auto Zone and Advance Auto will do the scan, and once you have the codes, you can research what they mean on the web. Just do a search for "trouble code..." and the code number.

I have a 2000 VW beatle showing a trouble code P0322 Speed Sensor. I checked with Ohms meter and received correct reading? Car cuts off when hot.


Speed Sensor has nothing to do with the engine cutting off
PO322 is a Generic Code for a Knock Sensor
You need to Google your codes & read up
An OHM Meter won't do anything for you on a Speed
Sensor,need a scan tool or scope
I would say you have an overheating condition to correct
& the knock sensor plays a role, wouldn't you think!

02 VW engine light that stays on


You probably need to replace the glow plug harness. The contacts in the boots that connect to the glow plugs get corroded and throw off the resistance of the circuit. The controller in the VW measures whether your glow plugs are good or not by testing the resistance in the circuit. Test all the glow plugs like DickyIV1 stated and if they are all good try cleaning out the crud on the contacts in the glow plug harness. You will then either need to clear the error code or wait several trips for it to clear itself. If it never clears itself or if it comes back on after you clear it then the glow plug harness is too much of a mess. This is really common on the TDIs (mine needs to be changed but i have been putting it off and ignoring the mil light). When I first tried cleaning the harness on my car it didn't give me a problem for another year and a half. But I knew I'd eventually be changing it.
The other thing to keep in mind is that you should change out glow plugs as a set. It causes less problems in the long run since if one failed you will probably find other will soon fail and it keeps all the resistance close to the same value.
