    I have just noticed that my emissions control light has come on.

    This is whats happening.

    with the engine running it sounds like there is a throbbing noise coming from the exhaust.

    also from the engine there is a ticking noise that sounds like chattering relays (quite loud).

    i took the plastic engine cover off and some thing is moving while the "chattering is happening), not sure what it is , can post a pic of what is moving if needed.

    After turning the engine off I could still hear the ticking noise for a few seconds.

    Any help would be much appreciated.


    many thanks

    Thats really bad luck that this has happened. When you post pics, one of the guys will be able to advise you. If you decide to buy a vcds cable user and site sponsor NHN sells the genuine ross tech vcds cable. :) x

    ******** UPDATE ******

    made a mistake , it is not the engine management light ,

    just looked in my q7 manual on page 16 , the light that has come up is the "EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM" light.

    sorry for the confusion.


    ....I have driven the car with the light on,no loss of power,




    help still needed though.

    Hi

    Update

    Noticed this morning the TICKING NOISE happens when the ignition is turned on, but without the engine running.

    when the engine is running, I can see what looks like a lever moving, this "lever " is behind the component that says "made in USA" .

    i have uploaded a video to you tube with the ignition turned on , but engine not running.


    here is the link



    YouTube


    Will post video of engine running later this morning.

    Many thanks

    Hi

    earlier today called breakdown recovery .

    they plugged into the socket under sterring wheel, and the following error codes came up.


    04203 INTAKE AIR TEMPRATURE CIRCUIT



    05504 INTAKE MANIFOLD RUNNER POSITION SENSOR - SWITCH CIRCUIT HIGH BANK 1





    any help would be appreciated on above

    DOES THIS MEAN I HAVE TO HAVE THE INLET MANIFOLD REPLACED ?

    Yes it does - there is a known issue with the manifold runners on the 3.0 tdi engine where the linkages breaks and stops working.
