      Need the exact code. It could be incorrect correlation, or implausible signal.

      Check the wiring. You're using your AWP trigger wheel on the AEB head right?

      Hey, I think I have a similar problem. After I did some minor work it died while driving and then would start and sputter, making a click noise every now and then. All i did before the issue was remove the fuel fuel rail, coilpacks, valve cover, IM, and Throttle body. I had to remove the hall sensor pigtail to remove the fuel rail. I also removed my pcv system to check all the valves.

      I don't have VAG available to me. I think its either the hall sensor pigtail/wire, or somehow the TB idle setting is out of whack. I'd drive to a shop but I can't make it but a few feet before sputtering out.

      Please give me any advice!
