A few weeks ago, I had some battery issues. Long story short, I ended up changing the battery.
A few days later I began to have an issue with my coil/ICM. I decided it was probably a good time to do the delete and conversion to 2.0FSI coils.
Before doing that, I used a generic hand held scanner to clear codes and see which would come back just to have a baseline for after the conversion.
At this point, car is not starting at all and I'm getting smell of fuel after cranking. I pull out plugs and see they are soaked with gas.
I probably shouldnt have, but at this point I went and converted everything over, expecting that when I was done it would start....
Meanwhile, at this point the car cranks but doest start, and it seems as if fuel is dumping into the cylinders. Hooking up to an Elmscan5 and Scantool software, I get absolutely no codes (it IS connecting to ECU to some extent). Im not even able to get the cable to work at all with VCDS lite..
So I have NO codes and a car that turns over but wont start and smells strongly of fuel when I'm cranking it.. Im reluctant to buy anymore tools or software at this point; I'm thinking maybe I fried the ECM, or could it be as simple as throttle body adaptation?
Any ideas/suggestions would be fantastic!
98 AEB 5mt. Codes were P0304, P0302, P0300 and one other which I dont recall-- but something to do with one of the O2 sensors. I suspect that may have been due to the flooding? Also, I decided to pull apart the ICM and found it was literally fried.. one of the comonents had burned up and bubbled away the silicone it was embedded in..
