Fault Codes, Could use advice


Veteran Member

Take a guess.
2013 Passat DSG
So I did a scan w/ VCDS and came up with 2 fault codes. I was really trying to avoid the dealer for anything even though I am still under warranty.

Maybe someone could tell me what these are and if I should really get them checked by the dealer or just clear them. The car seems to be running fine.

2013 Passat TDI
8468 Miles

Exactly what the distribution flap does seems obvious enough and I never noticed a problem switching from vent to defrost etc. but the NOx sensor I'm not too sure about. Emissions obviously but is this code telling me the sensor is bad and I need it replaced?

Any advice appreciated.

I had the second fault on mine for the courtesy check. Maybe the first as well. I reported them, they cleared them and they haven't come back. If you don't want to see the dealer then just clear them and see if they return. If they are a real issue they will come back and then I would see a dealer for work.

By the way it is good to post the whole log and not just the faults.
