  2. Looking at the wiring diagrams, the EGR,MAP & Coolant sensors do all share a common ground that comes from the ECU, (Pin 54 Sender ground) The main earth for the ECU is on the left side of the engine bay, but if these were missing the engine wouldn't run. A common problem with the Lambda sensors are the two disconnects under the thermostat housing, the wires corrode on the pins and often just fall off. the Alternator sense wiring also is in the same block of connectors. The lack of throttle response might be the ECU has lost it's settings if the car has been stood with ei

    Project Breadvan GT

    Been a while! ... Not touched the car for the last few months in all honesty, but parts are on order and having just moved house to a place with a garage the build should be making progress again soon 🤞🏻

    I would still run a soldering iron over the joints onto the PCB

    Thank you for that Nige’ and apologies for late response. I can only get to the outer side of the circuit board. The side I can see looks good, no burn marks or dry looking joints. thats why I thought I would need to check the other side Thanks again Pete
  6. Looking at those codes, I would suspect you are missing a ground for the Accelerator position sensor, EGR sensor, Lambda sensor, MAP sensor & coolant temp sensor
  7. First Welcome to the Forum. Please start your own thread otherwise this posting will get confusing
  8. Good afternoon, I need some help. I'm putting a 1.4 TDI BNM Polo Engine in a Jeep. I need a reading diagram for each pin of the ECU. Bosch ECU 045 906 019 BH EDC15P. I would appreciate it if you could help me. Alexandre
  9. Sorry each code is P0 before them it’s a 2000 6n2 1.0l polo
  10. First Welcome to the forum. Those codes don't look like normal VW codes as the old system uses either 4/5 digits the later (post 2001) will normally be a "P" code. Depending on the year of your car will determine if it will respond to a generic obd code reader or if it needs a VAG specific reader. What year/engine size & code ? the engine code can be found on the V5 document in the first three letters of the engine serial number.
  11. Hi. New here but am struggling to sort my daughters polo. This is her first car and due to COVID has been parked up for months. During this time someone stole the catalytic converter and ripped out the wires to the o2 sensor. I replaced the front and middle sections of the exhaust system along with a new o2 sensor thinking that would sort it ready for her to finally use it. However the epc and engine lights are on so I purchased a code reader for the odb2 codes and it’s showing 226,228,408,113,108 & 118. Clearing them does not work they come back straight away. The engine will start and so

    Pretty sure Golf spotlights are larger than Polo spotlights.

    Thought I would post an Update on here I put the car on the ramp after my work to make sure everything was good, It was not unfortunately I did notice a knocking noise thought gearbox mount was away and found this ... bolt had ripped though the threads, I tapped it out to an m10 and fitted a new bolt good as new !

    Mk 2 Polo Spotlights

    Yeah I looked on heritage and unfortunately no dice ☹️ Found several spotlights on sale on eBay but the part numbers slightly vary (one is off a Golf mk1) though part of me wonders if I could break it down for just the lens (that’s what’s cracked/has an inch of water in) there’s one grille for sale on eBay but I only need the lights and I’m loathe to buy the whole grill! 😂 The mrs would kill me too!

    Compression

    the engine is like a pump , the throttle needs to be wide open warm engine will give a higher reading than a cold one

    Mk 2 Polo Spotlights

    You could try VW Heritage usually for anything rare, none service. Discontinued since 2003 I think. You need the part number to use Heritage and to discover this. 9digits on the part. Sometimes in groups of 3 or with a trailing letter or 2. 7zap website Polo electrics page suggests 871941703 or 871941703a for yellow foglights preferred/required in France. Whole front grill from a scrap car?

    Mk 2 Polo Spotlights

    Hi, im trying to find a stockist for replacement hella spotlights for my Mk 2 Polo (one is cracked and half full of water) but I can’t seem to find them being sold anywhere! Am I just being thick? A steer would be greatly appreciated!

    Compression

    Flexible tube on a small can ( or tube on end of a tiny funnel) or it's too easy to miss the sparkplug hole when pouring. I do it with clutch and gas pedal pressed to floor just so it spins i a bit faster I find 6or7 revolutions enough to reach max. And i disable the electric fuel pump and ignition if 3 other plugs are fitted. Suppose you could clamp a mechanical pump's inlet pipe.

    Compression

    A squirt as in from an oil can, which is what I use. It’ll only be few ML, so yes I suppose a small amount using the cap of your oil bottle to measure would suffice, anymore and it’ll smoke like you’ve put diesel in it, once you restart the engine🙂

    Compression

    Would anyone be interested in a build thread of my car? I’ve done a ton of (‘innovative’, atleast I havnt seen much of it before) development work with bump steer and some things with the handling and also the engine. I work on it most days and have a workshop to make weird diy parts but the car is remarkably different to drive than in stock form. I’m just interested to share and have a good discussion and learn more.

    Compression

    Thanks a lot for that info, I’ll buy a tester and get in the know. can u elaborate a bit more on the wet test.. how much oil is a squirt? I have 1 bottle of engine oil I carry around so what shall I do with that, pour a bit in out the cap?
  25. mk2tastic

    Compression

    How did you do your compression tests, engine warm or cold? As already mentioned, are you also using a good quality compression tester with a known good accurate gauge? A wet test following a dry one will likely tell you the state of the bottom end. How I do mine: Ideally, engine cold, throttle fully open, battery fully charged. Dry test: crank each cylinder until gauge reaches a maximum. Wet Test: squirt of engine oil thru spark plug hole, crank until gauge reaches maximum. If you get a large increase in the

    Compression

    this was warm with closed throttle, it wasnt my tester just an ebay jobby from a friend so i cant retest for now. I may get a good tester and try again but im not feeling too concerned as the car drives pretty well, definitely not like its got badly low compression anyway. but who knows....
