    Hey guys, so today I scanned for fault codes after I changed engine oil ( I will tell later why I scanned for fault codes [​IMG] ) , so I got this code :

    01282 - Intake Manifold Flap change-over Valve (N239)
    31-10 - Open or Short to Ground - Intermittent

    Okay so why I scanned...When I was changing engine oil and when I had to change oil filter I have used quite big wrench cause I didn't had special wrench for oil filters...Okay so accidentally with that wrench I touched the cars battery plus(+) , so there was little bit spark... So when I finally done everything I started up car and after some time I scanned for fault codes and found this code :

    01282 - Intake Manifold Flap change-over Valve (N239)
    31-10 - Open or Short to Ground - Intermittent

    I tried to clear it but after some time of driving I scanned again and found it again.So my first guess that maybe it can be faulty fuse.But my question is what kind of fuse it is? I mean how it calls and where to find it cause I don't know how it calls, can anyone could help me ?

    I would not think it's a faulty fuse. The intake flap could be faulty just enough to throw a code but still work since the code is intermittent. In other words, it works but there's a bad wire somewhere.

    It's possible the fault is internal but without a spare valve you can't test this. So easy way is to inspect the wires going to / from the valve and see if you can find a break or crack in the wiring.

    I think I fixed it, my vacuum hose from N239 was quite bad , I replaced and now it seems to not throw code and intake flap working good. but I also cleaned my N239 contact with special cleaner so now I don't know which thing fixed the problem :D

    Any error code that shows short circuit to ground/earth you always check the fuses. Even an open circuit can be a blown fuse.
