    Scan gauge wont turn on

    I had a friends car here that had a working SCII plugged in, I unplugged that to plug in my VCDS cable. The VCDS worked, I plugged the SGII back in and it wouldn't power up. Thinking I destroyed it, I bought a new one to replace it with, but the new one won't power up in either of four mk4's...

    I have 2 scan gaugeII's to putz with in my b4 and a4. Neither turns on although vcds connects instantly. Am i missing something ? Pushing the lower right button doesnt do anything either.

    howdee... I can look at it. I work from my home garage. I'm on my way to Boyce Va, blueridge wildlife refuge to take an injured critter there. Be back around 11 or so. For giggles, when is the last time you changed your fuel filter ?

    G85 malfunction 00778 1J0959654bk

    After installing the used clock spring and getting the alignment, I was able to get the incorrect basic setting back to being correct using vcds. It wasn't painless, but no pain, no gain.

    a4 wagon in Pick a Part

    For the locals or someone wishing to drive, there's a very nice gasser, gold a4 wagon in the Stafford, Virginia Pick a Part boneyard. Complete body, maybe a scratch here and there, but better than most I've seen lately. Sorry, I'm not pulling parts for you.

    G85 malfunction 00778 1J0959654bk

    VW gave me the part number 1J0959654bk as being the correct clock spring for this 04 jetta wagon. The current clock spring is 654ap which has been superseded to 654bk. I found a 654ap in the boneyard and installed it, and now get Steering Angle Sensor (G85) 005 - No or Incorrect Basic...

    98 TDI Build

    I don't think a 2x4 will hold up to that twisty action. You will probably have to wedge the holding bar against the floor or something sturdy and watch you don't tip the engine stand over.

    98 TDI Build

    Copy the bolt pattern for the 4 sprocket to crank bolts, 3 in" piece of flat stock about 18" long and make your own holding device. Those bolts are tight suckers. No impact guns, I've seen pictures of the crank breaking from that.

    G85 malfunction 00778 1J0959654bk

    An 04 Jetta has the dreaded 00778 G85 malfunction code. VW says the clock spring is not available, no eta on a new one. This application is for a car with esp and no traction control switch. What now ? Any work arounds ?

    2001 Jetta became possessed, 17957, 17849, 19561, 17552 and 17660

    Resolution. KISS, keep it simple stoopid. I did check all the fuses and all were and are still good. After confirming all the involved solenoids pin 1's and the maf pin 2 were connected via e29 but none were receiving key on 12v+, an eye watering trek through the schematic showed power was...

    2001 Jetta became possessed, 17957, 17849, 19561, 17552 and 17660

    The car was fine a few weeks ago.... it was blocked in by my forklift that refused to start, but that's another story. I've checked the grounds I know of with an ohm meter for corrosion, nothing, but cleaned them anyway. I'm not sure if it is one component that died, like maybe the n108 valve...

    2001 Jetta became possessed, 17957, 17849, 19561, 17552 and 17660

    Sadly, the gremlin remains after a brand new, fully charged battery was installed. Maf actual remains at 550, can't command the n75 to test the activator, no egr test, timing off the chart, this is weird.
