    For some time a have repeated got the following engine fault codes when using my VAGCOM. Does anybody know what they mean? where can i access all the P reference numbers and what action should i be taking?

    17748 - Camshaft position sensor (G40) / Engine speed sensor (G28) P1340
    16487 - Shareware version. To decode all DTCs P0103 Please register/activate - intermittent
    17545 - Shareware version. To decode all DTCs P1137 Please register/activate - intermittent
    17705 - Pressure drop between turbo and throttle valve (check D.V)
    17608 - Shareware version. To decode all DTCs P0200 Please register/activate

    Sandip, great bit of info, thanks. looks to me it could be a dodgy MAF or/and N249 valve? I replaced the MAF only 8months ago and repaired all splits a few weeks ago but still get the codes.. I shall check functionality using the log but, like most things they are intermittent problems so difficult to nail the root cause straight away. I have checked the DV previously and seems to be OK. Is it possible to perform a throttle body alignment without a licensed VAGCOM i.e just the standard version?

    I do get running issues. I get a hunt intermittently every 4 secounds, i.e idle revs drop from 850rpm to 600 and back in under a 0.5 sec. I sometimes experience, when coming up a halt (off load - hard braking or selecting neutral/coasting) the revs drop completely and sometimes engine stalls which is dangerous. Also my ESP light comes on and stays on somtimes, which could be related?

    From what you've said it sounds like a dodgy MAF, disconnect it and go for a drive to see if the problem goes away. If the hunting goes away and idle becomes more stable with the MAF disconnected then you need a new MAF.

    Don't think you can align the throttle using shareware vag com, it does align itself when you put the ignition on though, you should hear a few clicks from it.
