      found out my 5spd ecm I picked up already has immo defeated

      I am throwing two codes for manifold pressure. I have NO charge piping hooked up, MAP isn't hooked up, no pipe off the turbo(one that recirculates DV/n75) and the car dies after 5 seconds of running. Anyone help?

      here are my codes-

      p0238 - manifold pressure/boost sensor(g31): signal too high.
      p0106 - manifold/barometric pressure sensor (g71)/(f96) implausible signal.

      VCDS says my IMMO is disabled, any other way I can verify?
      it's not that I can't do it, it's that I don't know how yet...

      Why isnt the map plugged in? I would also assume the MAF is unplugged as well, considering its not going to see the air flow.

      And Where are you seeing in Vag-com that the Immo has been defeated?

      have yet to finish intercooler piping. oops, no, MAF was plugged in.

      honestly, I'm not sure. I'll take a picture of it.

      what would be keeping this from idling?

      Un plug the maf, and plug in the map


      See if it changes the outcome.
