Title: VCDS near Oxford anyone?
Post by: timroz on January 04, 2017, 03:06:37 PM
Hi Chaps,
Happy New Year and all that. Hope you all were sufficiently "refreshed".
I am still having an intermittent non-starting/difficult to start issue with my 07 Alhambra TDI.  The latest error code using an ELM327 wifi dongle were:
P2108 : Throttle Actuator Control Module Performance
This coincided with very cold temperatures of -6C and the Emissions Workshop/EML coming on the dash.
I was just wondering if there was anybody willing to come and VCDS (for beer/sweets) my Alhambra. Located near Witney. Or is it worth investing myself?
Cheers in advance,
Tim

No doubt someone will be able to help you out but if you plan on keeping the car for a while could be beneficial investing in one of the cheap eBay leads to pull codes. Can also register with Ross tech to get access to measure blocks and more features. Think it cost 100 when I did mine?

Hi johnnyroper
Have ordered a cheap lead from The Ebay. Plan is to keep the car until May, then think again about a replacement.
I do have various Peugeots and a working copy of PP2000. Just wondering if the interface from PP2000 would work as the code puller? Might try it later.
Regards
Tim
