Where should I look to resolve a P0204 error code on a 2004 VW Beetle?


Fuel in the injector harness can result in a short causing this code. The only way for fuel to be there is a leaky injector. Dry off harness and monitor. Even though the injector is new, it may be defective. The next place to look is the wiring harness itself. You will have to find where the wiring for #4 injector goes into the vehicles computer and perform a resistance test from the injector harness to the computer to make sure there is no high resistance/opens. If all checks out fine, the computer may be bad. VW computer failure rates are extremely low. I would concentrate on a wiring issue.

Truck will not start... checked the wires... replaced battery... am getting fuel... all fuses are good...checked the wiring harness going to coil packs-have juice...checked the coil packs... took them


Normally we start with the basics, are the spark plugs firing and are the fuel injectors opening and providing fuel, and does the engine have compression.
Also, are there any stored trouble codes in the computer?
There is a relay that powers the injectors and fuel pump. You say you are getting fuel so we will assume that relay is ok.
The crank or cam sensor could have failed, or a list of other things.
You will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel or spark to the plugs to proceed.

Engine stalls #6 cylinder not fueling. Replaced fuel injector, plugs and wires. Checked compression. All good. Removed injector rail and placed #4 injector plug on #6 and injector started fueling. ...


sounds to me that you need a computer since the injector gets its signal from the computer. You can get a noid light from auto parts store to test the wire attached to the injector. The light should flicker when cranking the car. No flicker chances are you need ecm.

Cylinder number one stops firing, and black smoke comes out of the exhaust. I replaced the coil pack and spark plugs. when i unplug battery and reset the faults, it drives fine for a couple days. what...


honestly it sounds like you have a bad computer. there is a constant 12 volts going to each fuel injector and the computer momentarily grounds each fuel injector to activate, the black smoke is from too much gasoline and the missfire is probably from the injector either hanging open or being held open electricaly. next time it starts to missfire on number 1 cylinder try taking a stethiscope or long screw driver and put it on #1 fuel injector with the engine running and see if you hear a clicking sound. If not try unplugging the #1 Fuel injector. this won't fix the missfire but you can see if the black smoke clears up. if the smoke doesn't clear up with the injector unplugged and you are sure its # 1 cylinder thats missing, replace #1 fuel injector.

Check for any wiring pinch which might have occurred when the injector was replaced. The injector is driven directly by the computer, so it seems to point at the new computer as being faulty. (pulse signal is always 'on')
