    Hi Ppl
    Car is Audi S3 8L (2000 Vreg, APY)

    I have this fault code appeared when scanning my car

    01271 - Positioning Motor for Temperature Flap (V68)
    41-10 - Blocked or no voltage - Intermittent

    Every so often when i start the car up i get the coolant temp warning flashing on my display. this then goes off and all is fine.
    however, i have noticed that the temp guage takes a while to get to running temp (90degrees i think).

    i have got this from the Ross-Tech web site but i am still unsure:

    01271 - Positioning Motor for Temperature Flap (V68): Faulty

    Possible Causes

    • Wiring/Connectors from/to Positioning Motor for Temperature Flap (V68) faulty
    • Positioning Motor for Temperature Flap (V68) blocked
    • Positioning Motor for Temperature Flap (V68) faulty
    Possible Solutions

    • Check Positioning Motor for Temperature Flap (V68)
      • See Measuring Value Blocks (MVB)
      • Perform Output Test
      • Perform Basic Setting
    • Check/Repair Wiring and Connectors
    Has anybody had this fault before? if so....how do i cure it? and where do i need to look to check the wires?
    :think:
