Check Vsc - Code 51


Recommended Posts

I was accelerating hard up a hill - the misses was desperate for a wee - and all the pretty lights came on. Oh joy!

Did ye ol' paperclip trick and got following four error codes:

43, 51, 62, 63

I reset the VSC and everything went except for 51. I haven't driven it since so the others may come back.

Looked it up and code 51 and corresponds to ' Engine Control System

Malfunction' - pretty ambiguous if you ask me.

Anyone know what that means in terms of fixing it and/or had experience with with this error code?

Also, am I OK to drive the car do you think? Seems to relate to ABS and I won't be going too far.

Well the next morning all was well. No lights on at all, drove fine. It's been fine since too, driven softly and hard.

I think it may have ben the tuning box that I have plugged in that tripped it - TDI tuning, CRTD2. I disconnected it that evening and it's the only thing that I have changed. I'll try a different setting on the box and hopefully it won't reoccur.
