    Also I must apologise for posting some of the most boring crap on the forum.

    At least have some sympathy, I'm wasting valuable brain porn storage space remembering this car bollox.......

    The digi 1 Co pot is just a combined ambient air temp sensor and potentiometer - no airflow meter on them at all, it's a different arrangement to Digi2. I don't think any G60's had airflow meters....

    There will be a short test once you've finished studying it.
    I also have the Digi 2 self-study guide for the 8v golf and Polo G40 - in German.
    "Digifant im PKW - Konstruction und Funktion"

    Now all I need to do is learn to read german...... :lol:

    I read that thread Steve, I supose the only way to tell if the pot effects the whole load range is to know if it sits across the whole output of the map or hotwire sensor of if any correction is ignored once off idle.

    The final episode.......

    After a long time of not being arsed to do anything to the car, I pulled the digifant wiring loom from my other 8v. Stuck it on the dead one this morning, fired up first time and it now runs perfectly. All I have to do now is strip down the old loom and see exactly what the problem was.....

    Ahh well at least you sorted it eventually! My money`s on a brake inside the sheath of one of the wires, passes current just long enough to start the car and then fails, but which wire?
