  1. vagcom help

    Post the error codes and I will tell you what they mean?
  2. VAG-COM user database

    Cable: Genuine VCDS USB-HEX-CAN. Software: VCDS v12.12.0 Location: Stoke on Trent, England Experience: Not a great deal. I've done a few mods as you can read in My VCDS Tweaks. I've done a few scans on friends Golf's, Seat Leon's, Audi Q5 with a diagnosis success along with my Free EOBD II Error Codes Software.
  3. VAG fault codes. What do they mean?

    VAG Error Code: 18885 EOBD II Error Code: P2453 Fault Location: Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Pressure Sensor 'A' - Implausible Signal Possible Cause: Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active. Fuse(s) faulty. Wiring/Connector(s) from/to Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450) faulty. Tubing from/to Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450) restricted/clogged. Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450) faulty. Possible Solutions: Check Fuse(s). Check Wiring/Connector(s) from/to Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450). Check Tubing from/to Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450). Check/Replace Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450). Check Part Number/Version of Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450). Check Measuring Value Blocks (MVB). Check Diesel Particulate Filter Ash Volume. Check Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450) Offset Value. Differential pressure signal < -83 hPa to > 80 hPa. VAG Error Code: 18434 EOBD II Error Code: P2002 Fault Location: Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Bank 1 - Malfunction Possible Cause: Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active. Exhaust Pressure Sensor (G450) faulty. Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) faulty. Possible Solutions: Check/Replace Exhaust Pressure Sensor (G450). Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Perform Emergency Regeneration (Refer to Specifications!). Check/Replace Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Special Notes: Skoda Superb (3U) & VW Passat (3B) (Engine Codes: BGW, BSS, BWW) had issues with faulty Exhaust Pressure Sensors (G450), they were defective from factory and due to a leaking sealing the measured values were incorrect and resultet in wrong calculated particle filter load and unsuccessful regeneration cycles. EOBD II Error Code: P0472 Fault Location: Exhaust Gas Pressure Sensor (G450) - Low Input/Short Circuit to Earth Possible Cause: Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active. Wiring/Connector(s) short to earth. Fuse(s). Exhaust gas pressure sensor (G450). Engine Control Module (ECM). Tech Notes: Replacing the exhaust back pressure usually takes care of the problem. When is the code detected?: An Exhaust Back Pressure (EBP) signal that is detected out of range (high or low) by the Engine Control Module (ECM) will cause the engine to ignore the Exhaust Back Pressure (EBP) signal and disable exhaust back pressure operation. Description: The Exhaust Back Pressure (EBP) sensor is a variable capacitance sensor that, when supplied with a 5-volt reference signal from the Engine Control Module (ECM), produces a linear analog voltage signal that indicates pressure. The Exhaust Back Pressure (EBP) sensor's primary function is to measure exhaust back pressure so that the Engine Control Module (ECM) can control the Exhaust Back Pressure Regulator (EPR) when needed. VAG Error Code: 16855 EOBD II Error Code: P0471 Fault Location: Exhaust Gas Pressure Sensor (G450) - Implausible Signal Possible Cause: Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active. Wiring/Connector(s) from/to Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450) faulty. Hose from/to Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450) faulty. Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450) faulty. Possible Solutions: Check Wiring/Connector(s) from/to Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450). Check Hose from/to Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450). Check/Replace Exhaust Pressure Sensor 1 (G450). The new Exhaust Pressure Sensor must be calibrated with VAG-COM\VCDS. As taken from my EOBD II Fault Codes software.
  4. New guys Keith

    Hi guys/gals. I'm new to this forum but I'm on 40 others and I'm a mod and admin on 4 VW forums. I make my own programmes in Visual Basic (EOBD II Fault Codes Software) so I may post them after I've browsed through a lot of posts. See you around.
