1999 vw cabrio engine cuts out

My Cabrio was stored for a little more than a year and when I took it out this spring it started fine but when you drive it or even increase the throttle in the driveway the engine cuts out at no particular speed or rpm, when you take your foot off the gas the engine stays running. the computer is giving a code p1580 idle air control but there is no iac on this model. My local VW dealer said it was the throttle body. I replaced the throttle body but it still does the same thing.

    Wish I had a fix for it. 1999 cabrio same trouble here. Ours was only without a battery for one week. When we replaced it, the stalling while accelerating happens just as you describe --no trouble idling--and the A/C will not come on. It was recharged at the beginning of this year, was working fine a couple weeks ago. A/C clutch does not engage at all. The light comes on and I've checked for signal at the connector. All good. This only happened after being without electricity for a while. Some anti-theft device, I should imagine, but I haven't solved it.

    My 99 Cabrio is experiencing almost exactly the same problem. It only began happening immediately after I had a bad battery replaced. The engine cuts out when I'm accelerating and there seems to be no correlation with speed and the engine losing power in this way. The only consistent thing I've noticed is that when I rev the engine in neutral, it loses power around 40 rpm almost every time.

I had the exact problem with my wifes 99 Cabrio - parked for 9 months. Ended up having to have the shop reprogram the ECU - it then worked fine.

Factory alarm for 2001 cabrio, is it part of the radio?


No, it is not part of the radio unit proper. I have been driving my car since it was 3 days old without the factory radio. I could not tell you where the alarm is located, & I would not cut any of the original wires that lead to the radio to the harness, those might have something to do with the alarm, Vw tends to wire things funny

Where do you add tranmission luid on a 1999 vw cabrio


I'm almost positive that 1999 is the first year that VW changed to a procedure that involves special tools that require you to go back to the dealer to have this done. A quick call would confirm it. Hope this helps.

Cruise control


When my 1999 Cabrio was new the cruise control went out. It took the dealership and along with a VW expert 10 days to find a pinched harness assembly under the battery box.
