Both of these codes indicate trouble with the signal from the coolant temperature sensor.

So either the sensor is bad. The thermostat is not working properly and the coolant temperature is truly way out. The wiring to the sensor is short or open. The computer is bad and it is manifesting itself through this fault.

Does the car warm up properly? If it runs hot, or takes forever to warm up, this indicates a problem with the thermostat.

If the car runs at the proper temperature the next thing to look at is the coolant temp sensor and wiring. Some resistance values for VWs are here:

Hi, have there been any running issues. I have replaced a few acclerator pedal units due to the codes. p1296 is different and further diagnosis would be rquired as this is a general cooling system fault.

This code means "Charge Pressure Positive Deviation." It's related to the turbo system and may mean you need a new N75 valve.

What does a P1296 trouble code on a 2001 VW jetta 2.0 L mean ?


P1296 is a cooling system malfunction. The two things that will set this DTC is a defective Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor or the thermostat.

VW DTC 17704 (P1296) - Cooling system malfunction.

Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS) is faulty and reading an incorrect temp'.

Replace with the new version of the sensor, clear the code.

If indicated coolant temp' is too low the thermostat is sticking open.

2002 vw jetta engine code 1296. what does it mean.




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.

Received fault codes P0420 and P1296 catalyst system efficiency below threshold bank 1 on my emmission report. what do i do?


Not sure on the P1296 code, however in 95% of the cases the P0420 code means the catalytic converter is bad. See P0420 and P0420.com
