Hi

(I'm refugee over from ukmkiv's asking on behalf of a friend, so please go easy [:$]) She's got an A3 2.0 TDI. I'll try to explain using the descriptions she's given me (apologies) if you need more info, let me know and i'll find out

The enginge management light is on on the cluster. Apparently it's been scanned for faults and (her words) were it said something like throttle 'something' actuator.....

If that rings a bell or two - what's the process to fix the error?

What things can the engine management light relate to on an A3 tdi?

Would need the code number really. Exact same as VW mate with the codes.

There are a few throttle actuator fault codes. For example this is one of them

Fault 00282 Throttle postion actuator : implausable signal

Possible Symptoms

  • Idle Speed too high
  • Idle Speed Regulation in Limp Mode
  • Cruise Control System (CCS) not working- doesnt have cruise control



Possible Causes

  • Throttle Position Actuator (V60) jammed
  • Wiring/Connectors from/to Throttle Position Actuator (V60) faulty





Possible Solutions

  • Check Throttle Position Actuator (V60)
  • Check Cruise Control System (CCS)

IMF, Bearings, dodgy turbos, leaky rads - all common probs.

Theres also the porous head issue - thankfully mines "only" needed bearings at 20k, a turbo at 60k and the IMF at 60k :)

Im not sure how much the IMF is at dealers but i think its £206 at GSF.

You should leave the IMF for sale sign beside your ad in your sig kaz.
