    No hot air, heater not working in Audi A4 2014 - N422 Stop Valve error

    Hi there

    I recently bought a VCDS to troubleshoot a heating issue we have with our car (Audi A4 B8 8K 2014 Quattro).

    The car doesn't overheat, so I don't think it is the water pump (although my mechanic mate reckons they tend to fail quite a bit). I think it could be the heater control valve (or also known as a stop coolant valve)... This is the error code I captured last night from the VCDS:

    Code:

    Now for the second part of my question. I looked into the plenum chamber for the valve and noticed the following part code (4H0 121 671D). Based on my google search, this part seems to relate to the N82 rather than the N422 (even though the VCDS error highlight N422). Are they the same and has anyone dropped in the 4H0 121 671D to fix a faulty N422?

    Thanks in advance!
