hooray for fault codes...

Well, I ran the ol' vag com on the GTI tonight. While driving last week, the ASR and ABS light came on. I was feeling a strange vibration from the pedals last night, the ABS and ASR lights came back on and the ABS system seemed to stop working. Today it was doing the same thing. Here are the codes:

ASR
3 Faults Found:
00283 Front Left ABS Wheel Speed Sensor (G47)
35-10---Intermittent
00283 Front Left ABS Wheel Speed Sensor (G47)
16-10---Signal Outside Specifications - Intermittent
00283 Front Left ABS Wheel Speed Sensor (G47)
04-10 Mechanical Malfunction Intermittent

CLIMATRONIC
2 Faults Found:
00603 Footwell/defrost Flap Positioning Motor (V85)
37-10 Faulty Intermittent
07274 Air Flow Flap Positioning Motor (V71)
37-10 Faulty

A4-KOMBIINSTR> VDO V22
1 Fault Found:
01039 Coolant Temperature Sensor (G2)
30-10 Open or Short to B+ - Intermittent

62 Zentral SG Komf. 0001
2 Faults Found:
00943 Heated Exterior Mirror: Driver Side (Z4)
35-00 - -
00944 - Heated Exterior Mirror: Passenger Side (Z5)
35-00 - -

So, I have a feeling that the ABS Speed sensor and the Coolant Temp Sensors will have to be replaced. Those shouldn't be a big deal. What I'm wondering about are the Climatronic motors and the Heated Mirrors. What could be the problem for those? I have not taken the time to acutally look around the car since I haven't had much free time lately. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Definetly check your ABS sensor, make sure the wires have not rubbed through on anything, a little electrical tape might fix that though.

Make sure you get a green top coolant temp sensor, make sure it comes with an o-ring, and be careful not to break the little purple clip.

The heating elements in the morrors are most likely burnt out, it happens if you keep the "knob" in the center (or the "on" position) for extended periods of time.

Do you get a clicking noise from your recurculation function (HVAC)? If so, it is most likely your air flow flap motor, part #1J1907511A.
It's a bitch to get to, you'll need to remove the glove box section of the dash to get to it. If you can get it out, you can test it by turning the recurculation on, and see how easily it opens/moves. It'a about a $115 part.

The heating elements are part of the actual mirror, right? If so sounds like it's time for some new, aspherical mirrors.

Actually a guy on eBay by the name vagteam1 sells them for cheaper than anyone I know. I got my set for $48 shipped, both sides.

I didn't know that. I always keep the knob there so that if i bump it by accident i dont move the mirrors. Is it best to keep the knob on either the left or right so that the heater isn't always on?

No, I haven't. I cleared the codes and the light didn't come on today. I want to go out tomorrow and drive it around to see if the light comes on. I will check it out tomorrow though.

Should there be? I replaced the switch about 2 years ago IIRC. I haven't had a problem with it since. I guess I'll go get the dealership to replace mine since they are supposed to.

Nahh, just lots of times ive seen faults for it in there if it hasnt allready been replaced, but you should get a letter I think about yours, if it needs it. The newest ones are green.

Ditto... when I installed my coils, we were dropping the whole driverside coil setup and forget everything was plugged in and it ripped the wires right out of the connector lol.

Yeah, I did remember ripping the wires out of the ABS sensor a while ago. Greg and I fixed it. I checked it out today and it looks like some water may have gotten in there and the connector got a little corroded. I took a wire brush to it, and will fill the connector with silicone when the new sensor comes in.

A little update:

I cleared the codes and the ABS and the ASR lights have not came back on. So I'm thinking that was a fluke.

The car had been running really rough at WOT and I had previously do a temporary fix on the coilpack with some epoxy. So I thought the reason for the car running so rough might be the coilpack. I bought a used coilpack and installed that this friday. Still didn't fix the problem.

I picked up some Denso Iridium spark plugs. I haven't changed them in a while. I pulled the old ones and saw this :








I put the new ones in and no more crappy ride! haha. I'm stupid for not changing them out sooner, but it just slipped my mind.

I also ordered a coolant temp sensor (with the o-ring), ABS sensor, a new Green air filter for the CAI.

woot.
