Hello all! New(ish) user here in need of some guidance/expertise. Following the JPPSG:

1. I could not find a PR code sticker anywhere near the spare tire well.
2. Modifications:
• Replaced the RNS-E stereo with an aftermarket Pioneer and, in the process, removed all the other hardware other than the bluetooth module and Bose amplifier (Sirius module, CD changer, etc)
• New AGM Battery less than a year old
3. Complete scan below
4. I found a DSG fluid leak due to the bolt not being tight. I had DSG service in January of 2018 so my guess is the bolt shook loose? Replaced fuel filter, spark plugs and ignition coils (NGK 1675 plugs, these coils: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-nfis-original-equipment-parts/ignition-coil-priced-each/06e905115e~brp/ and this filter: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-hengst-parts/fuel-filter/1k0201051k~hen/ ) and fixed/replaced the ignition coil harness as all of the connector tabs were broken and, after opening up the plastic harness raceway, discovered a previous repair that was shoddy, as well as a few wires with nicks/cuts and brittleness. I cut off the old wiring near the right side of the plastic raceway and rewired everything with equal or higher gauge wire, using the same 'layout' as the original. The first time I started the engine after doing this work, it started fine, but had a misfire in cylinder 3. I pulled the spark plug and coil, cleaned them off, reinserted and tried again - it would crank, but not start. I got a couple codes: P1355 - Cylinder 1 open circuit, P1602 - Power Supply terminal 30 voltage too low and 01826 - Sensor for Steering Angle (G85); Supply Voltage Terminal 30 . I went back and resoldered all the connections, then tried again. It would again crank, but not start. The open circuit and power supply faults went away, but the 01826 error remains as do 01206 - Signal for Duration of Ignition Off Time, 01316 - ABS Control Module, 00778 - Steering Angle Sensor (G85) and other expected ones (due to the removal of the original stereo/nav system). You can see them in the scan.

I have tried swapping out the spark plugs for the old ones, coils for the old ones (these, which I got from a friend when I had a previous misfire code and, yes, I do realize that red tops make no difference: https://smile.amazon.com/Bravex-Professional-Racing-Replaces-06E905115E/dp/B07G4CFR5Z/ref=sr_1_7?crid=399DB8567MB9M&dchild=1&keywords=bravex+ignition+coils&qid=1618964408&sprefix=bravex+,aps,226&sr=8-7), cleaning the plugs and coils, everything torqued down to the proper specs. I checked the battery (DMM test says 12.96V or thereabouts. I use a charger/maintainer to keep it fresh. VCDS says 12.2+V. Could it be a bad battery?).

I've Googled this to death and can't tell what to do next. Get a new battery? New OEM coils? Something else? I've run a couple injector, fuel pressure, etc. tests with VCDS, but I don't see anything amiss - but I may be missing something! I'm usually very technically inclined and have fixed my car and friends cars fairly easily in the past. This is the first issue that's got me stumped! All maintenance is done on schedule and the car is kept immaculately clean. I've looked through the engine bay for anything amiss, made sure all connections were solid, all belts/hoses, etc. were in great condition. The car ran absolutely fine prior to this.

5. I've already discussed the non-OEM parts in #2 and #4
6. The cranks but won't start issue is what I'm here to try to solve!
7. Yes and yes. Pulled every fuse in the drivers side compartment, checked it and reinserted. Same for the engine bay fuse compartment. Battery connections are solid - the connectors are spotless and always have been.

I understand the 'air/fuel/compression' requirements but don't know where to go from here - I'm hoping someone can get me pointed in the right direction.

What is the fuel pressure when cranking the engine? 01-08-106.1
Please do a compression test as well and post the results.

Fuel pressure test:


Generally between 57 and 61 when cranking

Compression test has all cylinders right around 175 +/- 2PSI (Dry) and 180 +/- 2PSI (Wet)

I also borrowed a GTC505 Analyzer and...nada. Apparently there is no spark. Why would that be? I tested the coils using a DMM and they seem fine, as do the plugs.

Bad ECU? Is there some way to test for a control signal?

I tested the coil wires from the splice point to the connector pins and all seem OK - I'm assuming the 2 and 4 pins are meant to show no resistance between each other (connecting to the Pin 2 splice and touching Pin 4 on a connector shows a 0 ohm resistance on my DMM).

Is Pin 1 supposed to be energized (12V) when ignition is set to 'On' or only when cranking?

No further/different codes. Battery test shows A-OK (12.96V).

Thank you SO MUCH for any assistance you can provide. I greatly appreciate it.

FIXED! Here's a lesson in 'don't assume ANYTHING' - it turned out to be a blown fuse. A fuse that I had checked (along with all other fuses) with a DMM earlier, so it must have blown somewhere in this process.

Also, in merely looking at this fuse, do NOT rely on a visual check. Unless I looked at it *really* close I could never tell by looking that it was blown.
