    Angry Fault code help needed 2000 S3

    two days ago my car went into limp mode just been to a garage with vag com and got the following codes
    17863 exaust gas temp sensor 1 (g235) implausible signal
    17608 boost pressure control valve (n249) mecanical malfunction (just done the delete and pluged the sensor back in )
    17705 pressure droped between turbo and throttle valve ( previous owner had fitted a dump valve replaced this this morning with new 007p )
    17956 boost pressure regulation valve (n75) open circuit
    17938 camshaft timing adjustment short to ground intermittent
    17697 boost pressure control valve (n249) short to ground intermittent
    16396 bank 1 35 10 advanced set point not reached(over retarded) intermittent rediness 0000 0001

    the guy at the garage didnt want to erase them as he thought the car wount start after so any help with possable reasons for the faults will be much apreciated guys
    also i have not been able 2 wipe the ecu after n249 delete and 007p fitting would this explain some faults

    p,s my friend has a mac code reader would this clear them
    thanks matt

    you need those clearing to sort out whats old and whats causing the fault/lack of power.
    the n75 fault. any broken wires to it?
    exhaust gas temp will be causing lack of power if its a current fault (not an old one) but without them clearing.........

    clearing the codes wont cause the car not to start, it just clears the fault code register.

    as said above, you need to find out what the current faults are and then go from there, mine had a load of really obscure codes when i first scanned it, reset them and ran the car for a coupple of days and took it from there,

    pressure drop between dv and throttle valve has been a real battle for me in the past, dam vac leaks

    it may do, there are other tools that will do a similar job, vagcom / vcds is a very good bit of kit if you can get it tho

    have a look here
    16396/P0012/000018 - Ross-Tech Wiki

    and here
    Fault Code 16396 Intake Camshaft Adjuster


    may be worth googling the fault codes and trawling through various sites and threads to get more info, is it still going into limp mode?

    youve got a problem with the vvt chain adjuster then.
    might be an oil supply problem to it or the chain is worn and stretched?
