I've got a '95 GOLF 2.0. About a month or 2 ago my timing belt went out and the check engine light went on. I took it to the shop and had the timing belt replaced(I'm not very mechanically inclined) and the light was still on, so I read the codes and this is what I got:
00515 - HALL SENSOR G40. OPEN SHORT W/POWER
01247 - EVAP CAMP REG VALVE N80. OPEN SHORT W/GROUND
00513 - ENGINE SPEEDSENS G28
Can someone please tell me what these faults mean and how I should go about fixing them. I've got a chilton and can't seem to find much in regards to what these things are or what to do or how to do it. I've been driving the car ever since and the engine just doesn't respond like it did before the problem. Anyone help on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Can anyone help me understand these OBD CODES? (hesseroni)

first off check to see if they are plugged in. they may not be. or they could have been unplugged w/key on wherever you got the work done. what i would do i clear them and drive it for a bit and see which ones come back.
n80 would be a valve with two hoses and a plug on it near your airbox
g28 is one of your front wheel speed sensors i think
n40 not sure where that would be check on the valve cover ends

Is it running OK?
Maybe they just didn't clear the codes correctly.
Although your CEL light probably should have extinguished.
They may have been a tooth off when they changed your t-belt.
BTW-
Engine speed sensor is located low on the block,by the clutch cable.
Cam position sensor is the Hall sender located on the side of your distributor
