      Hey kids, my car was scanned and this code came up. It was 01166 Engine Torque Signal – Signal outside specifications, intermittent. Could this just be from really bad vibrations? I've never seen or even heard of this code. My passenger side drive shaft was toast and thus it vibrated terribly and drove like hell.

      thanks in advance

      Case, did you scan only with an generic OBDII scanner?
      There's something more underlying with that code.
      You need access to a VAG-COM which will give you specific details on the current issue at hand.

      Otherwise, currently, you can't do much other than clearing out the code, and checking wiring to the ECU.

      Erik, I knew I could count on you to reply. I was tempted just to PM you!

      I'm not sure what the shop used to scan in..I took it in to a local place/a friend and I didn't even think to check out their equipment (to see if it was a generic scanner or vag-com). Either way, they cleared the code and it hasn't come back up after driving it today. I really think it might've been because of how much movement was happening. If it comes back up, i'll PM you and let you know whats up.

      Thanks again for replying
