There is no code......unless you're using a vag-com?
have you disconnected the battery recently? or anything of the sort. if so, you may need to align your throttle body. anyhow, disconnect the battery for 10 minutes or more. it takes at least 10 minutes for the ecu to reset, so the longer the better. now, reconnect the battery, as quickly as possible, get in and turn the key to the battery. youll hear a buzzing of sorts from the engine bay if its working. leave the key on battery for 3 minutes. the buzzing will have stopped, before 3 minutes, but after the 3 minutes, start the car. now, let it sit at idle for 3 minutes, dont touch the gas. just let it sit. after 3 minutes at idle, go for a drive and you should be all set. hope that helps.

Take off the battery cables. Touch the positive and negative together for 10 seconds. Reattach the positive first and then the negative. Your computer will be reset to factory settings. Idle will be better, cruise will work and air will be fine at the idle position.

Surges in RPM while at idle


It may be one of two things. A intermittent problem with the idle air control sensor or the throttle position sensor. Have the cars computer scanned at a local auto parts store to see if there is a pending code that has yet to turn on the check engine light.

You'll need to disconnect the high and low pressure lines from the compressor. Unplug the electrical connector for the compressor. Remove the belt. Unbolt the compressor from the motor. Reinstall, connect a vacuum pump to the high side A/C fitting, start the vacuum pump, run pump until to have about 15psi of vacuum and then disconnect the pump and refill with refrigeraint.

IAC valve may be sticky or carboned up. Use throttle body cleaner to clean it up, and it should be good.
