    Hi all
    The engine light came on today when driving back from work in my 2004 225 mk1 TT
    I have vcdslite and the blue kkl cable so I plugged it in to scan and it came back with these codes:

    Address 01: Engine Labels: Redir Fail!
    Controller: 8N0 906 018 CG
    Component: 1.8L R4/5VT 0005
    Coding: 10710
    Shop #: WSC 01236
    VCID: 78836BE34BCB
    TRUZZZ8N451001077 AUZ5Z0D4035053
    4 Faults Found:
    16395 - Bank 1: Camshaft A (Intake): Retard Setpoint not Reached (Over-Advanced)
    P0011 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
    17963 - Shareware Version. To Decode all DTCs
    P1555 - 35-10 - Please Register/Activate - Intermittent
    16522 - Shareware Version. To Decode all DTCs
    P0138 - 35-10 - Please Register/Activate - Intermittent
    17584 - Bank1: O2 (Lambda) Correction Behind Catalyst: Control Limit Reached
    P1176 - 35-00 - -
    Readiness: 0000 0000
    --------------------

    I checked the codes on the RossTech website and also asked around and was told to sort the 16395 fault code first as this could possibly clear the other codes
    However I cant seem to get the part number for the part I need. Is it the Camshaft Adjuster Unit?
    Its my daily driver for work so would like to have it sorted quick.
    The car was driving fine and didnt seem to have any problems though.

    Any help appreciated [​IMG]

    1st thing is clear the codes, drive it and see what comes back. they could all be really old thats the thing. with the 1st code check the timing before you spend any money, also look at the cam chain & tensioner. if the oil servicing not been kept on top of the oil feed to tensioner can block andthe guides start to wear. you can buy just the guides on their own from ebay, once the tensioner is cleaned out then its often good as new once you do that

    Thanks John!

    I'll give it a check over.

    How do I reset the codes in vcds-lite? I couldn't find anything when I did the scan...

    Thanks :)

    Instead of doing an auto scan, click the top left button and click engine 01 to log into the ECU. From there you can check & clear codes, also look thru the sensor measuring blocks which is also useful
