      Wondering if the fix at the dealer will possibly involve an ecu update that will erase the APR programming.

      I've read mixed things, this is the only code my car is throwing .. does anyone have experience with this specific situation?

      Thanks in Advance!

      No..I was throwing that same code (P2015) about 2 months ago..took it to the dealership and found out it was an intake manifold problem. They replaced it for free and it was all covered under warranty. I wouldn't worry about the ECU reflashing...even if the dealership does do it, you can go back to the shop that orginially flashed you and they should do it again for free, since you have already bought the program.

      I think this was the code I threw a couple months back. Had to do with failure with some flapper motor for the intake manifold. They replaced everything under warranty. Mind you I have an aftermarket intake, tune, DV, boost gauge, etc. installed and they had no problem.

      It's apparently a trended issue with VWoA, and will probably wind up being a recall at this rate.

      possibly. not a big deal to fix, and it should easily be under warranty.

      I had the same code on my 2010 GTI about 3 weeks after I got it, it's a short wiring harness to the TB, new harness didn't fix it, but re-routing the wiring to add a bit more slack in the wires did. It's a really close fit, and when the engine heats up, the wires come loose and lose contact.
