P0380 right ?? with a cold car pull the harness off the plugs and first check that the harness gives out 12v when the key is turned on. you gotta be quick so having 2 people helps a lot. if no juice here the GP relay might be shot.... then use an ohm meter to check the resistance of the plugs. all 4 should be exact same reading. if the computer sees an imbalance between plugs it trips a code. if the plugs are old replace them anyway.

OBDII codes

The other codes are related to the transmission control system. O would focus on getting the car started. I will guess you are getting no sparks. This could all be caused by a bad crankshaft position sensor.

My friend this sounds like a catalytic converter problem. A number one symptom in the case of a "burned up" catalyst is loss of power or as you put it bogged down. Try disconnecting at the flange if not too much trouble or simply remove the O2 sensor downstream and see if pressure changes (old trick)

If you have replaced the glow plugs....replace glow plug harness. If code reappears, replace glow plug controller.

FYI: VW numbers the glow plugs backwards. IE: #1 cylinder next to the timing belt cover is number #4 glow your #2 is actually #3 on the engine.

I get PO700 trans cntrl syst malfuntion and PO705Trans range sensor ckt malfuntion PRNDLimput where are located??

this may sound a bit stupid but I suggest that you check the positive battery cable (below the main fuse). That was where my problem came from. On mine I had 700 and 705 codes and it got to where the starter lost it's solenoid signal.

My 2001 VW Beetle diesel will not start sometimes. The glow plug light will not even come on. If it does come on, it starts fine. If the glow plug light does not come on, it will not start. We changed...

Check for battery to motor ground and battery to body ground for corrosion under mounting bolts. also check motor to body ground strap for corossion and overall condition. Bad ground can cause all sorts of problems. Also check all electrical connectors to glow plugs for corossion.

Can anyone tell me where to find the glowplug relay, it's a 7 prong relay, on a 2002 vw beetle 1.9 diesel no turbo ? allready been under the dash and checked all the relays, none of which are 7 prong,...

Above the Relay Panel is the Auxiliary Relay Panel. Has thirteen positions in it.
6 across the top, 7 across the bottom.

Across the bottom the Glow Plug Relay is the fourth one over from the left. It is Number 10.
