    Audi A4 Cabriolet - iMPLAUSIBLE SIGNAL ---help !!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have had a major headache with this, i have replaced all the roof tray and components that are in the boot as i broke that. I have had a full VAGCOM rest done and when it read the code sequence for the roof open and shut it came up with this

    OPEN
    Address 26: Auto Roof (8H0 959 255 )

    19:19:31 Group 001: Convertible Top Status (Actual)
    Not Oper. Convertible Top Control Switch
    00100001 Switches && Positions I
    10 1010 Switches && Positions II
    30.0 Top Frame Position (G356)

    AND ALSO

    CLOSED

    Address 26: Auto Roof (8H0 959 255 )

    19:13:35 Group 001: Convertible Top Status (Actual)
    Not Oper. Convertible Top Control Switch
    00011010 Switches && Positions I
    10 1010 Switches && Positions II
    138.0 Top Frame Position (G356)



    Address 26: Auto Roof Labels:
    Control Module Part Number: 8H0 959 255
    Component and/or Version: VSG B6 CABRIO 6286
    Software Coding:
    Work Shop Code: WSC 00672 785 00200
    VCID: F3E0C3AC91AE891
    1 Fault Found:

    02000 - Switch Position
    008 - Implausible Signal




    Now apparantly the code sequence for the first few digits on the SWITCHES & POSITIONS 1 are wrong

    The first set should read

    00101001 but reads 00100001 (open)

    The second reads

    11011010 but reads 00011010 (closed)

    Please can someone tell me which microswitch or switches need changing if that is the case, many thanks in advance, Nick

    assuming that g356 is the number/position of the faulty switch/sender.

    the power of google!

    http://www.volkspage.net/technik/ssp/ssp/SSP_278.pdf

    and a bit of looking... gives all the electrical component locations on page 56/57.

    it might not even need replacing.
    a 55 plate vw beetle i was looking at at the beginning of the week......
    the hood would work to a point then stop when the hood down locking devices started working.
    the vas5052 we have at work gave a switch implausible fault like your fault code.
    running thru the guided fault finding program and looking at the switch values at different hood positions. you could see the switches for the hood down locking mech. were contradicting each other.

    stripped it down, removing back seat and rear panel cards. i could see the locking devices had a min and a max position switch on each side, i pressed each switch in turn with my finger and one didnt click on the n/s unit, but on bending the little metal tag/lever back slightly it did click. on pressing it again like i did the first time, it now clicked.

    and thats all it was! two little switches contradicting itself making the ecu think the n/s roof down locking mechanism wasnt working.
