Fault table: fault codes 00668...65535
Fault table: fault codes 00668...65535
  Note
t  If faults occur in the monitored sensors or components, these are stored in the fault memory together with an indication of the type of fault.
t  The fault table is arranged according to the 5-digit fault codes in the left-hand column.
t  Sporadically occurring faults (intermittent faults) will be indicated on the -V.A.G 1551- display as “SP” (sporadic).
t  The components shown to be defective by the fault reader should not be replaced immediately. Start by using the current flow diagram to check the wiring and connectors to these components. Also test the earth connections using the current flow diagram. This is particularly important in the case of sporadic faults (indicated by the letters “SP” on the fault reader display).
t  Erase fault memory after rectifying faults.
