What was the fault code he got from Audi? Any chance of the SDC code as well (helps you identify the component that has gone tits up) ?
Basically you input the SDC code into ETKA and it takes you direct to the part that is at fault.

I'd be inclined to believe that the ECT sensor is at fault (Engine Coolant Temperature)
Feck all to do with the ESP/Traction system - Audi talking out of their waste pipes again?? Rolling Eyes Embarassed

I'm a bit under the influence 2 man down Weedman at the moment....
Off the top of my head there's 2 different sensors. A green one or a blue one
Blue ones got 2 pins the green one has 4. There was a black one that is now NLA, use the green one instead.

Can't focus...wa****ed
Best not post in this state Laughing Laughing Laughing
I'm quite impressed with this sensible reply, work must be getting to me Laughing Laughing Laughing
If its wrong blame the drink Embarassed

Just bought one of these, been meaning too for ages. It will be interesting to see what they say compared to bosch kts, snap on solus and lauinch x431 wich i have access too.


I noticed the other day Launch (also being branded under mac tools but made by launch) now have a usb dongle that connects to the iphone. 70 but i expect it to be spot on as are the other launch products.


Now I just need to stick an gumtree ad up. On site diagnostics 25 Smile

Should have checked to see if it would work on an old transit van before I bought it.

Will still get use of it so not worried.
