Hi, I've been looking at your post about realligning the Throttle body (I changed my battery and it seems to have thrown out the allignment)
Your post explained everything, except what tool I should use to do the job. what scan tool would you recommend? I don't have one, and would like to buy one, but I don't want to get one that won't work. Thanks
How about the company which sponsors this forum? That's the company that Dana works for, and the company which created with site in the link that you thanked Dana for posting. That company makes a tool....

I reserve the right to be a prick if people make unreasonable demands.
I cannot manage to reset the throttle position even after the pedal was changed and removed the throttlebody and freed up the spring to close the throttle. should i just buy a brand new throttlebody or change the parts from an audi throttlebody i have? could it be the computer, because before i got the car the kid put an aftermarket exhaust on it and he ended up changing the front 02 sensor.
Ive removed, cleaned and reinstallel mk4 2.0 2002 jetta throttle body and ecm,and tcm with no adaptation post cleaning and the car ran fine I did disconnect battery prior to cleaning throttle body and ecm and tcm with electrical contact cleaner ....so vagcom not nessasary!
That I can tell you is a completely ignorant and incorrect assumption.
RTFB says you need a scanner to ADP the TV anytime it is replaced or the battery is disconnected.

Please sir you come on back now ya hear?
Post your scan later when you finally capitulate.
Hi. I don't know if this thread is still active but i'll give it a try.Hi,
As per the repair manual this Ecm (Simos vendor) supports the TBA in group 098 as shown on the Wiki page for DBC engines.
What are the details about the VCDS system you're using? The Interface model (i.e. KEY-USB), VCDS software version and PC details would be helpful.
Do any other installed control modules communicate with VCDS as listed here: Audi A3/S3 (8L) ?
I have just bought an audi a3 that seems to have throttle problems so I figured a tba should do the trick. I'm using a friends vcds which should be 4.09 registered on a win xp laptop. When we try to do a tba as per the instructions on channel 098 we get "bin. bit" in the two last boxes and nothing happened. What does this mean? Are we doing something wrong or is the tb busted?
I posted this over on the 2.8 12 v forum but figured would ask here as well.
I have a VAG-COM and performed the steps for the TBA. All went well. Problem is, it doesn't seem to take hold. Every damn time I turn the key to the accessory position, I can hear the throttle body doing its little dance and performing an adaption which I don't think is normal. Anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? Vehicle is a 98 GTI Vr6 by the way.
Thanks for the help!
