I have a 2010 VW Jetta TDI

I’m getting a p0641 Sensor Reference Voltage “A” Circuit/Open
It’s not accompanied with any other fault codes.
Im wondering if anyone can tell me what sensors are on “A” group, or if all the sensors are.

I’ve already tried to individually unplug every sensor I can see in the engine compartment, to see if that code goes away. I have yet to have the code disappear. The car starts and runs fine, but unfortunately the car is in “limp” mode, so it can’t be driven. Does anyone have and idea of where to go next?

I’ve already tried to individually unplug every sensor I can see in the engine compartment, to see if that code goes away.
Unplugging sensors is unlikely to change an "Open Circuit" fault.

You're going to need a wiring diagram.

Could also be the refernce voltage from the ECU is Kaput! VOM (Volt Ohm Meter) is your friend for this case.

You'll need to use it to trace which wire has an open circuit.
im aware of having to trace every single wire... Thats why i asked if anyone knew if all sensors are on group "a" or if curtain sensors were.

Should be clearly shown on the wiring diagram. The sensor has a few pins. Follow the tracks on the diagram leading back to the pins used to connect that sensor.

Need help understanding how to read the wiring diagrams? View this video:
