    Have you re aligned it, not sure if you can do it with VCDS as yours is a cable throttle?

    Hi guys my agu has just devolved this fault. My battery died when we had the snow and when I went to start it again problems with reving etc local garage said it was limp mode so a local garage told me a way to rest it luckily it worked but when I drove it it has no boost and when they plugged it in they said it has a fault code saying throttle bodies fault in basic settings they have no idea. Did you manage to get it resolved???

    a3 throttle body fault code?

    I had this fault with mine after having the battery off for 2 months and it turned out the potentiometer had decided to give up unfortunately this is built in to the throttle body I got one of eBay for £25 posted and this resolved the problem instantly the plug on my throttle body was different to the new one but they still work with a very simple mod to the plug pm me if you get this problem an I will tell you what to do hope this helps lee

    TB Adaption is easy, go in to vcds, then meas blocks 060 or 098 (cant remember without looking) then switch to basicsettings, top right box will say OK once it does, back to measuring blocks and done, clear codes, all sorted
