My 2001 Jetta GLS Check engine light is on and I am getting 2 trouble codes P0171 and P1296. What does this mean? My temp gage is also reading nothing at all. 1 more thing I noticed when my low fuel light came on the other day my temp gage began to work but when I filled up with gas the temp gage went to zero again.

P1296 indicates that the car isn't warming up fast enough or at all. Determine if the gauge is faulty by checking the temp of the engine with an infrared thermometer. A healthy engine should operate at 190-200 deg. F fully warmed up. It may be that the gauge is accurate and your engine isn't reaching optimal temp because of a faulty thermostat. It also could be that the engine is actually warm and the gauge is wrong. Use the search feature, we've gone over this one a few times. Also note that P1296 has been mis defined a few times too. P0171 has been discussed here a million times. Check the trouble codes section and the search box.
,,,,, I pulled this off of the OBD home page, It is a close shot for your car, Hope it helps.

2002 vw jetta, gas smell & shaking after 60mph


Well if the check engine light is on then there is something wrong, now you need the engine control module scanned for fault codes to begin to understand the problem that turned the light on, you need an OBD2 code reader (about $35.00) as a minimum to read the codes.

2002 vw jetta 2.0 code P0420


The error code definition reads:

"Catalyst Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 1"





It's possible it might be the oxygen sensor, but it's more than likely the catalytic converter. This is a relatively common code for VW's.

You can google "p0420" and see the posts...

2004 Jetta: my check engine light is on in my car im not sure ...


VW's somehow got around disclosing what the check engine lite codes mean to anyone except a VW Dealer. Therefore, to eliminate another service charge from a local repair shop I recommend you take the vehicle to VW and have them scan the vehicle's ECU for codes and do the repair accordingly.

I have a jetta 2002. One of the lights is this funny looking square on the right. It`s yellow. What does this mean?


this is the engine electonics lamp or eml, basically covers upto 2000 different codes, if it hasnt gone out its a permanent fault but if the car is driving ok not too serious if its major (petrol models) the lamp will flash. Refer to a good garage/ vw agent or specialized in diagnostics to fix.
