    HELP-00542 G80 needle lift sensor error code

    Visited Audi dealers recently and this code appeared on the diagnostic, engineer states that the lift sensor in the number 3 injector is faulty and will cost Ł615.49 to replace. I think they will need to replace the whole injector unit. Anyone had this happen before? Is there a cheaper option?

    Had this happen about 5 years ago on a seat alhambra, the hall sensor is part of the injector, so the whole thing had to be replaced,i seem to remember it cost me about Ł125 back then.

    The wire to the needle sensor in the injector is prone to rubbing through on the cam cover and shorting, I would make sure they check that first off.

    Was that for the whole injector unit (new) or was you able to recondition?

    I thought I had this issue last year and it was the wire, I can't remember the quoted price of the sensor (maybe Ł160 ish?), but its only built into an injector from memory, so Ł615 is ridiculous!

    definitely built into the sensor James,I remember thinking at the time what a dumb idea that was,it would keep going into limp mode,turn it off start it again and it would be ok for a while.
