Hi,

I know that I cannot install a new ECM in this car with my vagcom because you need a code that only the 'fatherland' has. Can only the dealer get this code or can I go to an independent mechanic to have this done?

Thanks,
Jim

Welcome to the forum Jim.

You need to post a full AutoScan inside CODE tags whether there are any error code or not [CODE] Full AutoScan [/CODE] as it shows more info on the system.

In principle, if the independent mechanic has jumped through all the flaming hoops needed to get on-line with the fatherland, it's possible.

Why? How will that help here? ;)

Yes, an independent mechanics can do this if they have invested a metric butt load for the factory VAS scan tool and registered with the 'fatherland'. My friend's repair shop has done this, but I doubt he will get a good return on the investment, not like he is doing ECM swapping and key adaptations every day...

Which is irrelevant to the question at hand on a 2012 car. :)

Yes, I have been scanning this car and posted one of them a while ago. I was told that it's probably a vacuum leak. I used my vagcom just a few weeks ago and did the method as posted here for fuel trim values to maybe help me. I still couldn't find a leak. I cleared the codes and the car ran like new for a few days. Now, this AM, the car was shuttering (rough idle) with flickering lights etc. I did a restart 6 times and it didn't help.

The car has 60kmiles and the CEL has been on for the past 20kmiles. The dealer said he fixed it but didn't. I'll scan the car tonight and post the results.

So far, I have:
--cleaned the MAP
--new PCV
--checked the bolts on the top end (hoping that one was lose causing a leak)
--changed the plugs(only done for routine maintenance)
--new battery (factory battery died in <3 years!)

I'm interested in seeing the codes tonight because the car has never shuttered like it did this AM.

I should never have sold my '01 Jetta TDI. That car was bullet proof and never saw a mechanic besides me!!

I'll post the scan as soon as I can.

Thanks,
Jim

Attached is my scan from a few minutes ago. Nothing new as I have seen these all before on previous scans for this car. Any insights? I started the car this evening and it started and idled fine. Should I do a TBA?

Thanks,
Jim

A TBA can't hurt, but I doubt it will fix the problem.

What values are you seeing for the Manifold Pressure, the Barometric Pressure, and the Airflow under various conditions?

In principle, if the independent mechanic has jumped through all the flaming hoops needed to get on-line with the fatherland, it's possible.

-Uwe-
Yes, an independent mechanics can do this if they have invested a metric butt load for the factory VAS scan tool and registered with the 'fatherland'. My friend's repair shop has done this, but I doubt he will get a good return on the investment, not like he is doing ECM swapping and key adaptations every day...
Just for a record ,
VAS online is not only option for this, It can be done other way by transferring or adding immo data , but of course it need good skills and good and very expensive tool :).
Also USED ECU can be install as well.

Yes, I have been scanning this car and posted one of them a while ago. I was told that it's probably a vacuum leak. I used my vagcom just a few weeks ago and did the method as posted here for fuel trim values to maybe help me. I still couldn't find a leak. I cleared the codes and the car ran like new for a few days. Now, this AM, the car was shuttering (rough idle) with flickering lights etc. I did a restart 6 times and it didn't help.

The car has 60kmiles and the CEL has been on for the past 20kmiles. The dealer said he fixed it but didn't. I'll scan the car tonight and post the results.

So far, I have:
--cleaned the MAP
--new PCV
--checked the bolts on the top end (hoping that one was lose causing a leak)
--changed the plugs(only done for routine maintenance)
--new battery (factory battery died in <3 years!)

I'm interested in seeing the codes tonight because the car has never shuttered like it did this AM.

I should never have sold my '01 Jetta TDI. That car was bullet proof and never saw a mechanic besides me!!

I'll post the scan as soon as I can.

Thanks,
Jim
I do not think you have ECU problem, it looks like you TB has lot of carbon on it and getting stuck time to time.
I suggest to clean TB , reset codes and see. Be care full when you clean TB , do not apply liquid direct on it.

Thanks Jetta, 97. I now don't think it's the ECM either.
I will next clean the TB. Can this be done with it on the car?
Note: my wife drove it to work yesterday and when she got home, I did a TBA. But first, when she drove inside the garage, the car was very loud--as if the exhaust pipe was missing! She also said the car almost stalled a few times at red lights. I cleared the codes and cycled the engine twice before doing the TBA. After the TBA, the vagcom said the TBA was OK. I restarted the car and dang, it was even louder. So it sits until this weekend. She's driving our '93 Dodge Cummins:)

There must be a massive leak that should be easy to find. I replaced the PCV disk but that wasn't the issue. I wonder if the N80 is it?

Uwe, I can't get the values you asked for because the car idles so rough and loud that I don't want to drive it.

Thanks again!

Yep, sounds like you should focus on finding the source of the noise first. Fixing whatever is causing that may fix other issues as well.

Now as for cleaning the TB, my personal opinion is that it cannot be done properly with it on the car.

OK, I finally fixed the problem. Jetta 97, you were correct. I removed the TB and cleaned it with carb cleaner last weekend. It had some oil/carbon built-up but not much. It's been 13+ years since I messed with a gasser and forgot that this part has to be so clean. I cleared the codes and ran it for the week and it was normal. Got it inspected today and it passed.

The loud noise was the aftermarket (Dorman) PCV. When I started to diagnose this problem months ago, someone said it may be the PCV. I bought the part from Amazon for $18 and installed it last November. This wasn't the fix. The rubber on the aftermarket piece was VERY thin and it tore in one spot. I put the original back on and all is good. If you take the original off carefully in the first place, it can be re-used. The aftermarket not only has cheap, thin rubber, the plastic is cheap. Some of the tabs broke when removing it no matter how careful I was. It sucks that you have to buy the entire valve cover just for this $20 piece!!! But I'll tell you something, as soon as the PCV goes, it goes and the car doesn't! I was lucky because the car was in my garage.

This car just turned 3 years old and has 60k miles. It's been our workhorse for long distance vacations, school activities etc and has not had one problem except for this--but it was an easy fix. Oh yeah, the cruise has been out for a while. After doing some research, it sounds like it is the stock--maybe a bad connection. Any ideas?

Thanks for all of the help!

Jim

It's possible the ECU may have refused to engage cruise due to some of the other faults you had. Before you make yourself crazy, get the ECU free of faults and then verify that cruise is still inop. If so, check MVB 066 and 067 for the status of the various switches and such. Hover your cursor over the data fields to see what they mean.

Uwe,

I checked those fields and did as you suggested but I can't figure out what the nomenclature represents. I logged what I was doing. The values did change in switch positions II of Group 66 with setting the cruise on/off and decreasing/increasing the set speed.

Switch positions I in both Groups changed when the brake pedal was depressed.

In Group 67, Shut-Off Crit. (rev.) and Shut-Off Crit. (irrev.) had values of 255 each throughout the test. Not sure what this means.

The ignition was on but engine off.

Also, when I did an Auto Scan at the beginning, it said 9-Cent Conv had a malfunction. There was no fault code. What does this mean?

Thanks,
Jim

OK, for Group 066, VCDS should show you the following when you hover your cursor over field 2:

xxxxxxx? = Brake Light Switch
xxxxxx?x = Brake Pedal Switch
xxxxx?xx = Clutch Pedal Switch
xxxx?xxx = CCS (Cruise Control System) enabled
xxx?xxxx = ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) available
xx?xxxxx = Main Switch engaged
??xxxxxx = CCS Status

The position of the question mark indicates which bit(s) correspond to the thing being desribed.

Ditto for field 4:
x0xxxxx? = CCS ON (CAN)
x0xxxx?x = SET (CCS ON)
x0xxx?xx = Deceleration (-)
x0xx?xxx = Acceleration (+)
x0x?xxxx = SET
x0?xxxxx = RESUME/RESET
?0xxxxxx = CCS ON (Hardware Pin)

If the problem is due to any of the switches in the stalk (or elsewhere) you should be able to identify it.

Also, when I did an Auto Scan at the beginning, it said 9-Cent Conv had a malfunction. There was no fault code. What does this mean?
Did you save the scan? I rarely like to speculate on what something means without seeing the actual data. ;)

Your ecu needs a firmware update.

The cruise may also be disabled, because the faults are circulating from Trans and ABS on CAN......
Make sure to do a broadcast or access the controllers directly erasing the DTC's if they exist.
Check that the TV in blocks is ADP-ok...... for both main ADP, and Kick-down ADP.

Leaks can come from any location which cause false air.
If sporadic be sure to suspect the N80, LDP , and Booster circuit.........( since mechanically switched or altered )in addition to know VC issues.

I have found that re-routing the VC vent to the lower air box cover, is a much better place to send crank-case gases.
This way you can see when oil pools here, and it is filtered out one last time to the combustion chamber, verse taking a CAT down.

You may find that due to running super slick synthetic oils...... that this increases the vapor/PSI in block.
A solution is to run conventional SAE oil with more frequent oil changes.

Please post a new auto-scan after broadcast of DTC's
