Question about Audi TT
It means that there is a diagnostic code saved in the car's engine computer. You have two choices:
1) Go to the dealer and have them pull the code and tell you what is wrong. This may be a little expensive, depending on what the code is and how much searching they have to do on the engine to determine the cause of the code.
2) Get your hands on an OBD II (that's a roman numeral two) code reader and, following the instruction manual for it carefully (you could do some serious electronics damage by misusing it), pull the code. You will have to copy down all of the information it provides, and then look it up on one of the OBD II code sites on the internet.
My car has thrown a P1136, which I pulled using my code reader. I looked it up on the internet and found out, through anecdotal evidence, that it was "likely" to be a vacuum leak. I cleared the code and it came back a week later.
I had the TT in for its 100K service last week and had the dealer check it and find the cause for me. It was $165 charge, but I now know that a cheap-*** little piece of plastic in the PVC system is cracked . . . replacement cost ~$300, including labor.
