Question about 1998 Volkswagen Passat

OBD II code P1602 on '98 VW Passat 1.8L B5

I am getting code P1602, Power Supply (B+) Terminal 30 Low Voltage. The engine is running rough, idle bounces between 600 and 1000 rpm's, rev's on its own to about 2000 rpm's and back to 600 to 1000rpm's. If I use the accelerator, it is hesitant to rev up and acts like it is trying to clear the problem if I back off of the accelerator and then re-accelerate. I have checked the voltage at the battery, the fuse block and the ECU and all three are reading 12.31 volts. All fuses are good. I am at a stand still. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Chris Hansen

I have a 98 passat 4cyl turbo and my oil light and now engine light is on. Took it to checkers for a diagnosis and they couldnt read the computer. Just passed emissions 4 days ago and they had to try 3 times to read the computer. What are some reasons this might be going on?

Hi Chris,
I assume you have removed and cleaned the battery terminals and connections - and the earthing connections while you were at it?
The best way forward is to get the fault codes read using the on-board diagnostic system. You can either get this done at a suitably equipped garage or do it yourself with free "VAG diagnostic software" - (just google it), a £15 interface cable and the use of a laptop computer. This should indicate where the
fault lies. If a sensor is throwing a fault code, it could still be just a dirty electrical connector on the end of the cable, and not the sensor itself.
Once you have the list of fault codes, get them cleared, run the car for a few miles (or minutes if you don't want to go on the road) and check the codes again in case some of them were old ones that no longer apply.
If you get back to me with the list I will try to help you further.
Cheers, D.

    By the way Chris, according to the DTC list at

    http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id...



    DTC P1602 refers to "Knock Sensor (KS) Module Performance"



    For what it is worth :-)



    If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
    If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

2005 ranger rough idle, flashing engine light & strong exhaust


first of all a flashing check engine light indicates STOP as soon as possible SAFELY.. as for if you continue to drive damage to catalytic converter may occur. Have you had codes pulled yet ? start there the codes wont tell you wrong exactly but will give you problem area to start checking out. check for data link connection. make sure it can communicate with scan tool. commonly on fords is the ecm fuse is in same power supply line as cigarette lighter.( you figure Huh.) if fuse is blown it affects ecm power supply and causes drivability issues. and fuse is labled cigarette lighter fuse and Not ECM power supply. hope this helps if not pull codes and repost more info i get the more i can help . good luck

Won't start, engine wont rev above 2000rpm


Have the alternator tested. You are providing a low charge to the battery when you jump it and when taking it above 2K RPM requires more amperage resulting in the engine dying and the rough idle

My 1987 turbo toyota supra will only rev up to 2500 rpm then cut out like a governer. when it drops to about 2000 rpm it will rev back up only to 2500 rpm. at an idle it runs rough


The throttle position sensor has an idle switch in it that tells the car's computer that the throttle is positioned at idle. If the idle switch sticks in the idle position, the computer will not allow the engine to rev more than 2500 rpm. In your case, I think the switch is stuck.

First, see if you can get the trouble codes to come up. Rig a jumper wire and jump between the "T" terminal and the "E1" terminal in the car's "Diagnostics" box. It is a small black box on the driver's side of the engine compartment near the battery. Open the lid and on the inside of the lid it has a map of the terminals.

Once you hook up the jumper wire, turn the ignition switch to on but do not start the car. If there are codes, the check engine light (orange) will blink the 2 digit code. It blinks the first digit, pauses, then blinks the second digit. The code for the throttle position sensor is code "41". That is, four blinks...pause...then one blink. If this code comes up, change the throttle position sensor. (If there are no codes, the check engine light will steadily blink once per second until you turn the key to off.) Don't forget to remove the jumper wire when you are finished.

Get code 16


code 16 is described as follows
rpm too low during self-test (lean fuel test)
or
idle speed control (ISC)
rpm out of self test specification
or
electronic distributorless ignition fault refers to a signal not recieved
or
exhaust gas oxygen sensor - signal voltage indicates rich during engine run self test

What i would check is the egr valve to see if it is stuck open. that would make it run like ****.
Does it idle ok or does it run rough. I mean without revving it with the pedal? Have also seen these melt exhaust valves.
So check that and let me know what you find.
