VCDS Serial number

Hi. VCDS reports Oil Sensor P0196 & P0198. (Pls ignore the AC codes, 15048 - Coolant Fan Control Circuit 1. The coolant fan is controlled by a signal generator and a manual toggle switch. Also, please ignore 590082 - Control Circuit for A/C Compressor. That's operated by 12v toggle switch).

Question: I assume the oil thermal temp sensor is the device located on the bottom of the oil pan. Car runs great, oil sump is full.

What is the torque spec for the nuts?

The Excel log reports: G439 Loc. IDE04937 Sensor for engine block temperature: raw value °C -48

How can the engine block = -48 C? I'm in the SW USA.

Thank you very much for your assistance.

How can the engine block = -48 C?
That's a typical reading form the ECU when there's an open circuit to the sensor in question, assuming the engine actually has that sensor. If the specific application doesn't have that sensor, then the ECU programming ignores that value.

Thank you for your assistance Uwe. After I had my wiring diagrams from Mitchell printed, I lifted the VW to inspect the connector and probe the wires. It appears some "mechanic" broke the locking tab on the connector and it was half off. I simply pushed it on, used aviation safety wire to keep it connected, and tested it. Sure enough, the "15170 - Engine Oil Temp. Sensor (G8) P0198 00 [00101111] - Signal too High" error is gone. With the loose connector, the Advanced Measuring Values: OIL FILL was 120mm, now 92mm, Engine Oil Temp was 90c, now 49.0c (engine was run briefly).
Thx again. Barry
