Engine management


Recommended Posts

Hey again.

I have had my engine management light read.

Error codes

00532 dtc status sporadic

16804 p0420 catalyst system bank 1 efficiency below threshold

16687 p0303 cylinder 3 misfire

 

 

So ive sorted the misfire.

Ignored the 00532 as its airbags

But the catalyst. The guy said it could be an oxygen sensor. I know there is 2.

But he cleared the errors and none have come back after a few hours.

Should i get this looked at as im a bit miffed to be honest.

Part of me thinks when the alternator and ht leads went these are residuals. I dont know if it works like that though?

And advice again. Cheers 🙂

I would go with VCDS it's a copy of the main dealers setup, the "Lite" software is free to download from the www.ross-tech.com site and then you just need a lead https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-Diagnostic-PC-Cable-for-VW-Audi-Seat-Skoda-VAG/160903327378?hash=item257695ee92:g:LgUAAOxyfpJSV~Q8  and a laptop, it will do all you really need
