Question about 2001 Volkswagen Cabrio
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.
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.
