U0212 Lost Communication With Steering Column Control Module. vw golf mk5 steering control module removal

There's not much info that I could find about the code, but possibly the wiring harness is loose, or the module is dislodged, or the module itself is faulty. The above video is for a vw golf, but it may pertain to the Jetta module as well.

Hello. The code: U0212 is for the Steering Column Control Module. You need to change it. Go to a well known junkyard that sells good conditioned or descent condition iteams and look for your style and year like your car. Good Luck.

For VW TDI: Fault code P1550 = "Charge Pressure Deviation"
You must check up all vacuum hoses, the pressure charge air line (pressure hoses, spring-type clips, charge air cooler), the vacuum reservoir and also all solenoid control valves.
You must try follows if you are able to do this:
1. Engine stopped and ignition switch off. Check all pneumatic connections and hoses between turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control, boost-pressure control solenoid valve, vacuum reservoir, EGR control solenoid valve, intake-manifold flap solenoid valve, EGR valve with throttle - part of intake manifold. Also the vacuum connection between tandem pump and brake booster. If you find something wrong replace parts. If not go to step 2.
2. Extract the hose of the turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control part of turbocharger. Instead of the original hose you must place another 1 meter long hose with the same inside diameter, and then you check to inspire yourself the air from the other one extremity of this hose. The mechanical connecting rod of the turbocharger actuator must have a smooth and whole motion. If you can do that with your mouth, then you must replace the boost-pressure control solenoid valve. If you can not reach this with your mouth, then you go to step 3.
3. This is the most difficult work. The problem is that the soot particles deposits inside the turbocharger plugging the variable nozzle geometry mechanism = adjustable vanes of the turbine. If the turbocharger actuator is not able to adjust the turbine vanes the charge air pressure increase too much and ECU (engine control unit) go in "limp mode" = engine protection software. As a result the "limp mode" engine still running until you turn the engine off (ignition switch off) and back on when the "limp mode" is deactivated.
4. You must be able to extract the turbo from the engine and then to disassemble the turbocharger, clean inside adjustable vanes mechanism and refit all.
It is some work to do here, but after that you will be full satisfied!

this is a common problem for these cars glow plugs go bad like spark plugs however the smoke would lead to bad mass airflow meter. it is not telling ecu corrcet miss. disconnect mass airflow meter. when cold see if this makes it start better. it should would means you need new m.a.f. glow plug issue take a test light place clamp on positive of battery then pull off glow plug connectors place tip of test light on glow plug the bad one will have a dull light unlike the good one which will be brighter. will need new plugs and wire harness four **** connectors and wire striper and crimper will fix concern good luck

Dashboard spiral light vw jetta tdi 2001


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.
If the problem still occurs you might access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored. Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC's stocked inside ECM & reset it.

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.

Cheers,

What does a P1296 trouble code on a 2001 VW jetta 2.0 L mean ?


P1296 is a cooling system malfunction. The two things that will set this DTC is a defective Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor or the thermostat.

2002 VW Golf TDI - Live in northern ontario - -20's with wind chill. When I first drove the car this morning - error code (looks like a clock) on upper right portion of speedometer gauge. Just flashes on ...


Classic 109 relay failure.

Relay is for the Glow Plug system.

This relay provides the power to all of a TDI's engine-based electronics.

If the glow plug light comes on intermittently by itself, check your brake lights too.

A burned-out bulb will cause the glow plug indicator light to come on. Sometimes flashing is caused by a bad Brake Lamp Switch on the Brake Pedal. It was updated for free by VW .

If you can see it under the knee panel, the Brake Lamp Switch body should be Metallic Green....if it is Purple or Black it need updated.

What are the cause of a mil light on 2002 vw jetta- how cna one diagnosi this under the hood? can cold weather be a cause and can this correct itslef


Check the MIL code to see what exactly is the problem. For instance, it may be an O2 sensor that has been damaged in the cold.
Please read the following link. It is a great source to troubleshoot MIL codes.

Volkswagen Diagnostic Trouble Codes
DTC Table - General

From model year 1996, vehicles manufactured for the North American market are equipped with a Government required diagnostic system known as On-Board Diagnostics II (OBD II). This system monitors operation and function of all engine management system activity and automatic transmission operation to insure compliance with specified emission levels.

Vehicle emission levels are constantly monitored by the OBD II system and malfunctions are recognized and recorded. A Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) in the instrument cluster alerts the driver to the fault and the need to have the system checked for fault codes. These codes follow a standard format and are known as Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs).

DTCs are assigned two codes. The first code is a numerical code assigned by the factory. The second code is referred to as a P-code and follows a structure required by law and defined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). This standard uses a letter to designate the system and four numbers to further identify and detail the malfunction as listed below.

Could you tell me what the Jetta TDI diagnostic code 638 is?


There is no DTC codes for VW 638, your going to need to get the right code There is a P1638 and that is Data Bus Power train missing message from clutch control. which means there is not communication from the TCM to the clutch control. (there is no signal from the Sensor to the ECM) replace sensor and check the wire harness. Good luck and hope this helps.

Wondering what the error code we were told means


First, the check engine light just means you are not meeting emissions right now. Not a big deal. Try disconnecting the battery for 1/2 hour and then reconnect and drive car for 10 miles. It may run rough while it relearns you engine controls again but it often clears the codes.

Now, codes are only 5 digits so I assume the 2 is extra.
P0420 = catalyst efficiency below threshold (bank 1)
P0240 = can't find this code.

Autozone also does free scans. please rate for me, thanks
