Golf mk5 1.6 FSI Faults


Registered User
Hi Guys,

I have recently bought a golf mk5 2004 1.6 FSI BAG and it comes with two faults:

17478 - NOx Sensor (G295) Heater Control: Short to Plus
P1070 - 001 - Upper Limit Exceeded

[h=2]16396/P0012/000018 - Bank 1: Camshaft A (Intake): Advance Setpoint not Reached (Over-Retarded)[/h]
I've done some reading - and the first one seems to be an expensive fix got quoted £366 from eurocarparts however i wonder if there is a way round?

As for the second one I've read from the history of the book that the chain has been changed about 10k miles ago and I have already checked the position sensor (it reads 14 ohms across) also using the computer I've done the check on the component and it seems to work. Could the timing be slightly out?

has anybody ever came across the following problems?
