    . . . and not in a welcome or useful way! I've had the car scanned with VCDS to try and get to the bottom of some problems that nobody can seem to solve. So, expecting (and hoping for) an error code to reveal something insightful I get this:

    000000 - SAE - Reserved by Document ISO 15031-6
    P0000 - 006 - 2005 - Intermittent

    Freeze Frame:
    Fault Status: 01100001
    Fault Priority: 0
    Fault Frequency: 37
    Reset counter: 40
    Mileage: 0 km
    Time Indication: 0

    Freeze Frame:
    RPM: 1984 / min
    Torque: 144.0 Nm

    Auto HVAC Labels: 8E0-820-043.lbl
    Part No: 8E0 820 043 BL
    Component: A4 Klimaautomat 3233
    Coding: 00000
    Shop #: WSC 00000
    VCID: 6CD392611C222C78EC3
    1 Fault Found:
    00716 - Air recirculation Flap Positioning Motor (V113) 41-00 - Blocked or No Voltage
    --------------

    The first error code is weird, and there's not much on google to explain it, other than some non-English forums in Russian, German, Romanian, Hungarian . . . et. al. Using google translate with some amusing results it appears that the guy who posted it on the German forum appears to be getting told off for deleting his DPF. And then I came across an English post about somebody trying to fix a Golf TDI 170 with the same error code and the response says:

    My problems are excessive black smoke, lumpy idle, hesitation at about 2,000 rpm (a slight flat spot), very easy to stall when cold and just turned on but seems okay once it's warmed up (this is a very new problem).

    I've only had the car 6 weeks. I'm starting to think it's no wonder people can't find anything wrong with the engine because the problem might be the ECU! Has anybody seen this error code before? Do you think it looks like somebody could have tampered with the ECU/map? Is there a quick and inexpensive way of testing the current map on the car or returning it to standard?

    I feel violated, like I need to take the car for a long wash!

    All insight is greatly appreciated because I don't know what to do next.

    Did you buy it privately or from a dealer?

    Bought it from a dealer but they've already taken it to Audi and an independent garage and both have said there's nothing wrong with it even though they admit it smokes a lot and has a lumpy idle. Now I fear they may have been looking at the wrong part of the car though!

    Looks like your recirculation flap (for the AC system) is stuck?

    Might be helpful to post the full text of the VCDS scan for all controllers.

    Hi Dave, I'll post the full VCDS scan again as it's not showing correctly on my netbook!
