    Scanned my car again and it's come up with map sensor and will not clear the code. Hopefully problem solved.

    What code? MAP sensor is not one that I have ever seen go wrong

    Also had
    p1296 which is thermostat(I know I need this doing)
    P1355 cylinder 1 open circuit
    p0106 manifold/barometric pressure sensor
    p1297 pressure drop between throttle and turbo
    p1570....can't remember this one but nothing much

    So a few lol..... Need to get it sorted
    only one that won't clear is the map sensor one p0237

    check the wiring plug on the sensor first, might not be connected properly!

    Guessing you have a handheld scanner rather than VCDS hence the P codes...

    My guess is you have a wiring fault possibly a bad earth or something as there seems one too many electrical faults for it just to be a faulty sensor... in my experience multiple electrical issues are generally down to wiring...

    Check the earths under the battery tray...

    Using vcds....gives both codes but I always use the p codes for some reason.
    I know the coil pack wiring has been messed about with by previous owner as its all taped up so need to give that a good check.

    Ill have a look under battery tray at the earths when I get a chance next. Map sensor in a tricky place to check connections was gonna disconnect it and make sure it's got a good connection before ordering a new one

    Had the battery out tonight gave all the earths a good clean up had slight corrosion on them. Now I have lost the borking when you rev it on idle which is a bonus. Now all is left is when driving put your fit down and it hesitates a few seconds then boost will come on. Not had chance to resan the car tonight but will do it tomorrow see what I'm getting now.
