Can anyone help me translate these codes? Would these be signs of a faulty throttle valve control module? The symptoms i'm having is a slightly rough idle, and when I punch the accelerator I have a noticable hesitation and it feels like the engine stumbles a little trying to get the revs up. Also a little bit of exhaust popping when the revs come back down to idle.
VAG-COM Version: Beta 402.3-US
Control Module Part Number: 021 906 018 M
Component and/or Version: MOTRONIC ME7.1 G V006
Software Coding: 00031
Work Shop Code: WSC 01317
3 Faults Found:
17950 - Angle Sensor 1 for Throttle Actuator (G187): Implausible Signal
P1542 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
17952 - Angle Sensor 1 for Throttle Actuator (G187): Signal too Large
P1544 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
17580 - Angle Sensor 2 for Throttle Actuator (G188) Signal too Low
P1172 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent

It sounds like your throttle body or its wiring are faulty.
Did you try doing a TBA just for fun?

That's the general opinion of everyone I've spoken with over the weekend. Gonna try cleaning and adapting the TB as soon as I can. Thanks

Re: Help with VAG codes ([email protected])

Unbelievable. I cleared the fault codes and did a throttle body adaptation and I also did a idle speed adaptation and dropped it to setting 124. The engine purrs like a kitten now. It has never run as smooth as it does now. Man, I love my VAG-COM. I was hesitant to buy it but I'm glad I did. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
