    Hi all,

    I'm a regular on the 8L A3 section. My brother in law just bought a 2001 B6 1.8t on Thursday, and whilst driving yesterday the dreaded engine management light came on.

    So I scanned the car for faults and the following code appeared:
    16795 - P0402 - Secondary Air Injection System (B2) - Incorrect flow.

    Now my question is, what does this indicate has the fault? I've removed the fault code for now, with the hope that it doesn't re-appear. But if it does, what are we looking at replacing?

    We're hoping that this is just a coincidence and isn't related to the previous owner!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Bhav

    can you hear the pump working on cold starts?

    also check the little vac pipe on the egr valve.
