    Question VAG COM codes... all five of them! help!?

    i am new to the vag com software and managed to figure it out, in the end i got 7 codes, the first two were only advisory the other five however... well

    17978
    17524
    18010
    17952
    17580
    16518

    i done some research on ross-tech but couldnt find some of the codes,

    id appreciate if anyone can diagnose these codes and the solutions to fix them, when the car is on idle it sits at 900rpm and raises and drops very slightly, also in 2nd and 3rd gear in the higher end of the revs it feels like its holding back power, could these codes have anything to do with this?

    i would appreciate any help in solving these matters, im sure i can rely on Tuffty, he seems to know everything about the 1.8t engines!! (:

    think the engine code is AJQ, Quattro 180bhp.

    cheers guys!!

    do you think the 17524, could this me deleted and ignored or may this be a cause of the car running a little rough?

    I've got the 17978 code in combo with 18263 and 16485 on my Audi A3 8P 2.0TDI 2003. Trouble is using that link to the Wiki it tells me this is an imobiliser related fault and that the eng start is blocked, but it's not!

    Have to dig a bit to find what the others mean!
