    DSP "Foam Fix" Blend Door plug kit

    Just installed a set of plugs in my 2005 Jetta MkIV Sedan. Worked exactly as expected. Excellent product, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    DSP "Foam Fix" Blend Door plug kit

    Just ordered one kit for my 2005 BEW Jetta Sedan. This looks to be very much of a time saver in the tight confines you have to work in. Any kits coming for the exterior air door or the director door? Thanks for mentioning the off gas period, and your choice of application products. I was...

    Very low power after cold start (04 BEW)

    Thanks for the pressure test rig parts list. I think the plugged exhaust is preventing turbo spool up. The vnt17 will not spool well at low power anyway, but it should be MUCH better than this. The smoke limiter is based on air flow; if you pull the MAF connector it will use a default airflow...

    2006 Jetta wont stay running after Sunroof Leak

    On earlier cars there was a sensor ring around the key for picking up the RFID signal. I would start with finding every connector in that path and cleaning it with contact cleaner.

    That immobilizer code - the anti theft is the probable culprit.

    Check your radiator/condenser fan operation NOW

    There are some fan tests in post #1 of this thread. You can test the fan speeds by jumpering the radiator temperature switch. It is obvious once your ear is trained, not obvious otherwise if fast or slow. This is a very common question. Genesis, add the following, as well - if the AC...

    BEW/PD Owners check your lift pump

    The $68 and the $209 dollar one you listed appear to be identical. Both have lift pumps that put out 5-8 psi and about 55 liters per hour. At least that is what is shown in the photos. One could be a knock-off, I guess, made to look identical but of cheaper stuff. The sending unit only was...

    BEW/PD Owners check your lift pump

    This fuel pump is for Mark IV. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fuel-Pump-Module-with-Sending-Unit-for-VW-Jetta-Beetle-Golf-L4-1-9-TDI-Diesel-/13237752714 It looks exactly like the VDO one I bought years ago, same colors etc. Mine is still on the shelf as a spare. It only fits the BEW engined cars (Golf...

    test N75 > VCDS > Measuring Blocks > Switch to basic Settings > "Greyed Out"

    Dan Schein did 99% of the work on that file; I only contributed the one block. I try to keep a copy handy.

    2006 Jetta TDI - 30 DTC errors - Where to start?

    He replaced the battery, it was really old. It has been running fine since then. Next time I am here when he comes by I will check the ripple again. I was really just posting the number here as a cache. If I do get an update, I will post it here as well. I don't have a real O'scope, but I...

    2006 Jetta TDI - 30 DTC errors - Where to start?

    Glad to hear the issue appears resolved. I have one more data point, an apparently well running V6 Tahoe, with a very old very weak battery (would not start on cold mornings any more) was reading about .050 vac or 50 mvAC rms of ripple.

    BEW/PD Owners check your lift pump

    I no longer suggest doing the modification. It is hard to do the mod in a fashion that is high enough quality to add the "pull through mode" without adding unintended failure modes that actually increase the unreliability.

    2006 Jetta TDI - 30 DTC errors - Where to start?

    Look at fields 12,3 for voltage, 16,1 for alternator load. 16,4 for voltage again. The Ross-tech link also sends you to field 16,1 for alternator load signal. I thought the alternator load showed up somewhere else, but I could not find it. It is reported to the transmission for automatics...

    2006 Jetta TDI - 30 DTC errors - Where to start?

    This is still on the old alternator? Are you near the coast? History of corrosion? Do you have VCDS? There are some alternator load control fields.
