    hi peeps, i recently changed my maf sensor, its not a genuine bosh one and ever since ive been getting a 17705 code. would this be because of the maf sensor or something else?the engine management light was on before i changed the sensor an it went of as soon as i changed it and hasnt come back on.
    anybody have any ideas??
    thanks alot

    Not the maf sensor; probably a split hose somewhere


    17705/P1297/004759 - Pressure Drop between Turbo and Throttle Valve (check D.V.!)
    Possible Symptoms

    * Power Loss

    Possible Causes

    * Leaking hoses and/or pipes between components
    * Check Boost Pressure Control Valve (N249)

    Possible Solutions

    * Check hoses and/or pipes between components
    * Check / Replace Boost Pressure Control Valve (N249)
    * Check / clean Throttle Valve, do Throttle Body Alignment

    Special Notes

    * Did anyone fitted an extra (wrong) dump valve?

    i have had an extra dv fitted but it seems to be working fine and there is no signs of split pipes. sometimes when starting in the morning it struggles to run so last time it did this i umplugged the maf and the car idles fine then?is that just a coinsidense. the codes intermitent by the way

    I thought the non genuine Bosch MAF's were **** as a few people have had bad experiences with these. My friend had one on his A4 and it cocked up within 2 days!

    yep and yep! :) if the revs are going up n down all the time it could well be a dirty Throttle body.
