Got more details on it?
Did you use VCDS to get the code?

Yes you will need vcds/vagcom !!
A quick google gives the following error. 17966 - Throttle Actuator (G186): Electrical Malfunction
where would people recommend to get a cheap cable from? I bought 1 a while ago off ebay, but it doesn't fit (the 16 pin plug is too big). I already have the programme just the cable needed
I had the same issue but I trimmed the area around the port a little bit with a knife and its fine now.
Yeah mines not the best fit either, will go in with a little wiggle though no need to trim anything !
ill give it a go and see what happens. thanks
