    2006 Jetta 00588 Air Bag Igniter and 01426 Controls in Steering Wheel Fault Codes

    Okay, admittedly, I believe it's the operator error once again. In my haste after the repair, I may have just hit the "Clear" tab instead of "Clear all DTCs". I just cleared the codes after this latest reassembly, and took the car for a short ride. No more Airbag Warning Message when ignition...

    I just reassembled the pieces and ran an updated scan - really becoming an expert at reassembly now lol.

    2006 Jetta 00588 Air Bag Igniter and 01426 Controls in Steering Wheel Fault Codes

    Sure Uwe, I suppose that I will have to put everything back together again to do that. I probably should have saved the latest one, thanks.

    2006 Jetta 00588 Air Bag Igniter and 01426 Controls in Steering Wheel Fault Codes

    The key in my 2006 Jetta recently jammed, and I was able to remove the shrapnel from the ignition housing, and reinstall with all key positions functioning. I also removed the electrical ignition switch, and was lucky to replace it in the correct orientation (I believe) to allow the car to...

    2006 Jetta Ignition Electrical Switch position

    My key felt strange when I pulled it out of the ignition tumbler a few nights ago, and when I inserted the key to start the car shortly thereafter, it would not move. The steering wheel wasn't locked, but the key would not rotate to "on" or "start". I put the valet key in, and tapped on it for...

    Thanks Bruce, hope this works.

    2006 TDI Jetta Coolant Thermostat Valve (N214) Fault Code

    Update - I replaced the thermostat today. There was no question that it was open - one of the two support bands was completely severed, so the spring pressure would not allow the thermostat to seat. I took a few images, but I can't determine how to post those here. If someone is able to...

    2006 TDI Jetta Coolant Thermostat Valve (N214) Fault Code

    Thanks Jetta 97, I appreciate your input - I suppose that the OEM VW part from idparts (which you steered me to previously) is acceptable?

    2006 TDI Jetta Coolant Thermostat Valve (N214) Fault Code

    Thanks stefdds, I never considered replacing the housing, but I see that idparts offers that assembly, thermostat, o-ring, and bolts as a kit, so I appreciate the advice. The vehicle currently has 386K miles on the clock. I've had thermostats stick closed, but never stuck open, but that must...

    2006 TDI Jetta Coolant Thermostat Valve (N214) Fault Code

    I have a 2006 Jetta TDI, and upon checking out the CEL, VCDS indicates P0128 - Temperature below Control Range. I did a test of the actual coolant temperature relative to the instrument panel temperature gauge, and they generally appear to be in synch. I let the car idle in my garage, and...

    2006 Jetta Tire Pressure Warning Light

    Thanks Uwe, I suspected that answer, but thought I'd ask.
