Default NMS P026A and P0111 Code Diagnosis

2012 Passat TDI SE

Summary: Engine CEL, Ran Ross VCDS scan, discovered code P026A and P0111. Cleared. Did research. Ordered MAP sensor (G31). Engine CEL again. Ran Ross VCDS scan. Got same Codes. Cleared codes. Pulled sensor. Discovered greenish oil/water condensation froth. Cleaned sensor, and replaced. Engine CEL again. Cleaned upper intercooler area with rag (limited success). Replaced sensor. Success.

Note Sensor G31 and G42 are a combined Bosch MAP and IAT sensor.

2-3 3.60 kOhm6.17 kOhm
2-4 2.01 kOhm4.44 kOhm
3-4 1.59 kOhm1.65 kOhm

Speculation: oil/water condensation froth creeps into the sensor and decreases resistance, and causes IAT Portion of sensor to read “Implausible Signal”. This in turn causes the P026A code as the computer suspects the intercooler is compromised.

Note: 03G 906 051E = 0 281 002 977 = 0 281 002 976
Absolute pressure sensor 50-XXX kPa with integrated air temperature sensor. Supply voltage 5V. Bosch compact connector. Pin =1 Ground, Pin 2 =NTC (Temp), Pin 3 =+5 V, Pin 4 =Output signal. Vacuum connection: O-ring

Replaced with New sensor 0 281 002 976 (bought thru e-bay: less than $50)

So Far So Good.

Sorry to necro bump this thread but, I'm going to remember this if we ever get those codes. .

How many miles on the car and whats the driving style? looks very similar to the goop found in my IC hoses on my old 2010. Pics taken at 10K oil change wayyyyy back in 2010.

I'm at 126K miles.

I drive in the slow lane, and try not to accelerate up hills. Wannabe hypermiler, so I guess my driving style would contribute to this gunk buildup.

Side Note:
I have a picture of my odometer at 123456 789.0, but I can't seem to upload it to the pics.
