Hi Guys,

So far I've replaced the air filter, MAF sensor, fuel filter and MAP sensor.
Apart from starting better the problem is still there.
I have the full version of VCDS but no experience of using it.
Could someone please advise me which channels to log etc to identify the cause.

Thanks for any advice

Andy

when you open your VCDS and its registered, on first window there is a auto-scan function, hit it!
once its complete save it and paste the unmodified content in code brackets, if you don´t know how to do so, please read this guide here: How-to-post-an-Auto-Scan

once auto-scan is posted it is a lot easier to track down what issues you have stored in your car, and there fore easier to solve them.

Will do, scanned for fault codes and 00575 showed up.

Thanks for the link but I had read the description.
Problem is how do I test components that would cause the error.
Just off out to do a full scan as requested so will post the results soon.

Then I suggest you file a complaint and return it to them. Let Trading Standards know too.

Uwe is the owner of Ross-Tech which develops VCDS, so if he says you have a pirate copy then you have pirate copy - no ifs, no buts, no maybes :facepalm:
