      Find a buddy with VAGCom, then do the basic settings for 08 AC & Heating electronics. This will run (4) flaps through their ranges, and store the opened & closed potentiometer readings in the AC...

      I don't think this is a mechanical problem with the needle movement, or else why would it eventually get there? The temp indicated by the gauge is very highly filtered and slow to respond. You may...

      Have you removed the 15kg ballast weight at the left rear? You must have; I guess it's common knowledge with the TT experts, but I just heard about it and was really surprised that Audi did...

      First, I'd post this over in the AT forum; there's a lot of info and experience over there with the 09A.

      Then for your friend:
      Check the AT fluid level. (Yes, you *can* check it, refill, etc;...

      No, the Bentley for the TT has no real info on engine internals, at least in the paper copy. If that's what you need, go for the Jetta manual, or the Audi A4 manual.

      Should be fine if the TCM P/N are the same. Not sure what kind of problem you are having, but you might want to make sure the problem is not in the harness wiring before you replace the...

      Glad to see that you got it sorted out (and updated all your threads about the problem!)



      Was it a different scan tool this time? Some scan tools miss TCM codes completely. VCDS is the best...

      I see from your other thread that you are about to swap your TCM for a replacement from ebay. Before (or while) you are doing that, go ahead and check your speed sensor pins for shorts. You can do...

      It may be OK once it dries completely; probably one side is more wet than another. Try bringing it inside somewhere with A/C and see if it changes after a week or two.

      27-30 ohms for VW too, though 20-35 ohms is mentioned as being OK too in a different spot in the manual. N249 with an electrical problem (open or short) *will* throw a code. Terminal 1 on the N249...

      What are the miles on the car? If the PO did 'nothing but oil changes', I'd be concerned he did not change it. If you feel lucky, you might find a date code on the belt, there was on mine. A 2006...

      Up to 2002 VIN 8N-2-014400, separate sensors were used:
      G251 = longitudinal accelerometer = 1J0-907-651-A (Quattro only?)
      G202 = Yaw rate = 1J0-907-657-A
      G200 = lateral accelerometer =...

      Be careful to buy the right sensor ... IIRC there was a split in 2002 that combined the lateral & longitudinal accelerometers and the yaw rate sensor into one unit. Before that, they were separate...

      Think of it this way. The key and the central locking module have a *list* of about 16000 numbers (maybe 16000000, I can't remember). When the key fob works, the key fob and the module in the car...

      If you have two keys, you can use the method in post #2 in this thread. (Except may have to turn the ignition *off* in between programming each key fob, AFAIK). 20vMaster does not have two keys to...

      Seems all three of you with problems in this thread have automatics, right?

      You can have problems with the AT that might *feel* like a miss, like TCC issues for example (Torque converter...

      Yes, someone has been in there before. That sloppy and excessive white silicone is not how they come from Japan.
