Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
This could be as simple as a dirty throttle body not allowing the throttle to settle properly, although there have been a lot of problems with the fly by wire throttles which required the unit being renewed.

It's means - Throttle Pos.Control Malfunction, but my guess is that your problem is elsewhere I'd check all the vacuum lines and rubber connectors around the throttle body near the valve cover, especially if they are the braided hose type.
This was/is quite a common problem.

Although this may be considered a common Ford DTC, it's very minor. You in fact can safely ignore this code and it should go away as part of normal driving, you do not need to clear this code (as it may not actually turn off the MIL). If you want to the code to clear itself, faster, run through the Ford Drive Cycle. However, if you have other trouble codes, the MIL will stay on as there are other issues.
Hope this helps.
