My 2009 vw jetta TDI has code po47a showing. What does this mean?

When my 2009 Jetta TDI check engine light came, I took it to my nearest VW dealer - about 100 miles away. $450 spent, and they said some kind of exhaust flap was stuck, and they replaced it. Within a month, the CE light came on again. Didn't want to drive 100 miles and get stuck up for another $500 so I purchased an OBD reader, and the code is PO47A. Apparently has something to do with the exhause pressure sensor. I ordered one, and repaced it myself (about $85) and cleared the code. After driving for about 10 miles, the CE light comes back on, and the error code is again PO47A. My repair manual for the car has codes for PO47B, PO47C and a few more, but no PO47A. the car runs just fine as it is, but I want to make sure there is nothing serious going on.

Lost power steering, then car wouldn't start

What is the condition of the serpentine belt? Is the belt free of oil or coolant? Is the belt tensioner working correctly? If the spring inside the belt tensioner becomes worn. It can not apply enough tension to the belt. Also if the tensioner is corroded it can become seized and cause the same problem. I hope this helps but if not please try to give more symptoms or details. Good luck.

The check exhaust light came on during my drive home. Is it safe to drive it 20 miles to the nearest VW dealership? What might be the cause of this issue?

If your Check Engine light came on and your vehicle seems to run fine. You can drive your vehicle. if you have an AutoZone, Checkers or similar auto parts store closer, they perform FREE computer trouble codes retrieval.

Check engine light comes on and the vehicle starts running rough, misfiring and will stall at times. The codes have been cleared twice and it will go for 75 miles before it happens again. Stored codes are...

okay lets start with the po 068 & po 108, check the connection to the mass air flow sensor if conn are good replace the mass air flow sensor, that should solve the two codes, now the po455 is a evap gross leak detected. first is to make sure gas cap is good and on tight, i f it is then look for broken evap lines or hoses, it a line that sends vaccum to evap canister and another line that send fuel vapors to engine and canister check lines, also there are valve that you should check vent and purge valves, this part you may need a shop to test valves, hope this is helpful,

Check engine light,'99 beetle

Have you had your brake light sensor replace. They have a recall on it. Change out your drive belt and it should make the noise go away. As long as it's cooling(a/c) i would not change compressor.

2006 PT Limited. Engine Malfunction light is on.

First off, it's NOT the crank position sensor...Unless you've pulled the motor recently!
Get down to Advance Auto Parts and buy a car of "SeaFoam" ($9) and add it to your tank per AT LEAST 100 miles...problem should go away.
If not, your O2 sensor in the exhaust (x3) is faulty...look to spend $200-400 depending on your mechanic...DO NOT GO TO THE DEALER!
Good Luck

What does the ECG light mean on a 2002 VW beetle?

It has to due with the anti theft system. Try replacing the battery, when my battery went bad the ecg light came on and the car wouldn't allow me to drive. That or your key may need reprogrammed by the dealer.
