    Cable or Electronic Throttle Valve on my AUM

    My previous AUM engined A3 1.8T was fly by wire, no cable, I think it's the earlier engines that had cables.

    Easiest way was to just look at the throttle body and if there is a steel cable on a pulley coming from it then that would have solved it You will just have a plug on the side and no cable.

    Or turn the ignition on so the dash lights display. If theres one next to the tacho that says EPC then its fly by wire.
