    Thread: Help with a fault code: 17608 - Boost Pressure Control Valve (N249)

    1. 09-18-2003 10:56 AM #1
      I plugged in my vag-com yesterday for the first time in a few months. I was disturbed to find this code:

      17608 - Boost Pressure Control Valve (N249): Mechanical Malfunction
      P1200 - 35-00 - -

      I've seen posts which indicate this is related to my DV. I've noticed it seems a bit louder than usual lately, but then I've been driving a little harder, too. No CEL, though. Should I ignore the fault or just replace my DV?

      Thanks for any info.

      I threw that code when my DV was sticking. No codes since the lube job. 9 times out of 10 its going to be related to your DV.Good Luck.

      This code will also show if using a BOV, is that correct? Thanks.

      When I was playing with an HKS BOV, without the recirc kit, I got this code. Got it only during cold startups too.

      I have the HKS BOV, all this started after I put in an N75 J valve

      Double and triple check the hoses for cuts/holes and that it is secured properly.

      Could this be a problem with (n249) working properly?
