This looks like an adequate fix. I used shoe goo to fix the light bar on my spoiler. Here, vehicles do not pass yearly safety inspecion if any CEL is on. I'll do something sometime before October. Thanks WardB
Thanks for the innovative responses. . . all good ideas. I haven't done anything the last few days. The harness was repla ed by PO. Looks like new. When I find out more, I'll post results.
Thanks for the ideas. WardB
That looks like a permanent fix. I do extreme when all else fails. Just going to drive it for now. GP's won't be necessary for at least five months. I WILL close this thread and post results when I find the fix.
Yes, it came back immediately. VCDS could not clear it. I unplugged the harness and sprayed contact cleaner into the harness plugs.
Cleared the code with a handheld reader. CEL is off, but it indicates a 'code pending' (yellow light on the reader). That seems to indicate less resistance because...
Fresh plug and still P0380 code. Couldn't find DeOxit locally. Will do some more looking around for other problems.
I figure I'm pretty fortunate. It's mid April and I really won't need pre-glow until October. . . cold air AND yearly inspection due then. Shirley, I'll find the...
I checked the glow plugs. All between .6 to .9 ohms except number 3. It it rang out at 1.1 ohms. Is that enough to throw a code?
Someone also suggested to check an inline fuse located above the underdash fuse panel. Any opinions about that?
I ordered a gp to replace #3. Guess I'll put it in...
I'd be interested in how much you get. TDI's are getting a lot of bad press. Could be yours will fetch less than before. Diesels are no longer clean. . . That matters to a signicant percentage of buyers.
Let us know what you get.
My thermostat and thermoswitch were both not functioning when I bought the car. According to SGII, the coolant temp would NEVER get above 165F in winter, although the idiot light goes out at 132F. With a new stat, it takes a few miles to get to 180-190.
I have to climb a local mountain pass...
My friend's 2000 gasser Jetta is throwing some codes:
-16595 Secondary Air Injection System
P0411-35- 00 - incorrect air flow detected
00532 - Supply voltage B+
07-10- signal too low - intermittent
Any ideas or suggestions welcome.

Don't know. But if you put the o-ring closest to the end on first, it will provide an almost flat surface for the back/bottom one to slide across. I also remove the back one first.
First time I tried to put the back one on first (seemed logical) I broke it trying to pry it out of the first...
