    Hi all as my A3 has just made the magical 100k mark though i'd check to see if i have any errors and it's has 3 errors. wondered if anyone could help with how to solve them

    16502/P0118/000280 - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62): Signal too High

    01218 - Side Airbag Igniter; Front Passenger Side (N200)

    01276 - ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64): Signal Outside Specifications

    I've changed the engine coolant sensor but yet it keeps coming up with this error.
    Also think the airbag light is due to me putting S3 seats in.
    But i have no idea of the last on, any help will be great

    cheers

    As listed on wiki.ross-tech.com:
    16502/P0118/000280 - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62): Signal too High

    Possible Symptoms

    • Difficulties with starting a cold engine.
    • Starting the engine when engine is warmish or warm, idle rpm immediately is 1200 - 3000 rpm.
    • RPM at idle is irregular.
    • With all engine temperatures idle rpm will often vary between 900 - 1000 rpm.
    • With engine warm (90 °C) the engine temperature suddenly drops (70 °C) and slowly comes back to 90 °C.
    • Bad acceleration during warm-up.
    • Diesel Engines: Glow plug indicator may be on for a longer than normal time or at ambient temperatures where it shouldn't come on at all.
    Possible Causes

    • The electrical signal coming from G62 is too low
    • Wiring and/or connections faulty (short circuit?)
    • Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62) faulty
    Possible Solutions

    • Check wiring and connections
    • Check / Replace Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (G62)
    Special Notes

    • In many cars between MY 1995-2002 the G2/G62 had a bad reputation for failing often. The original G2/G62 sensor is black and the improved replacements are green.
    01218 - Side Airbag Igniter; Front Passenger Side (N200): Resistance too High

    Possible Symptoms

    • Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) active
    Possible Causes

    • Wiring/Connectors from/to Side Airbag Igniter, Front Passenger Side (N200) faulty
    • Side Airbag Igniter, Front Passenger Side (N200) faulty
    Possible Solutions

    • Check Wiring/Connectors from/to Side Airbag Igniter, Front Passenger Side (N200)
    • Check Side Airbag Igniter, Front Passenger Side (N200) faulty
      • Check Measuring Value Blocks (MVB)
    01276 - ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64): Signal Outside Specifications

    Possible Symptoms

    • Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) ON
    Possible Causes

    • ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64) Connector to Control Module faulty
    • Wiring and/or Connector(s) faulty
    • ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64) faulty
    • Brake Electronics Control Module (J104) faulty
    Possible Solutions

    • Check ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64) Connector to Control Module
    • Check Wiring and/or Connector(s)
    • Check/Replace ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64)
    • Check/Replace Brake Electronics Control Module (J104)

    01276 - ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64): Electrical Fault in Circuit

    Possible Symptoms

    • Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) ON
    Possible Causes

    • Fuse(s) faulty
    • Wiring and/or Connector(s) from/to ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64) faulty
    Possible Solutions

    • Check Fuse(s)
    • Check Wiring and/or Connector(s) from/to ABS Hydraulic Pump (V64)
