Hi everyone, Jeff from Kenner (New Orleans) Louisiana here.

I came across a random opportunity for my first project car back in May on a 05 Passat TDI for a ridiculous price. The previous owner had several TDI Passats and was very knowledgeable on what its issues were. So before I made by decision to buy, I hit the internet (this site first by previous owners recommendation). After a night of research, I pulled the trigger.

I have to say, the one time $10 fee for the good posts on this site was the ABSOLUTE BEST money I spent on this car.

Here is a rundown of what I knew up front the German oil burner needed.
- BSM had most likely failed
- Tires were shot
- No battery
- AC Control Panel
- All the basic fluids and filters (hasn't run in 2 years, duh)

So...fast forward 6 months and I'm almost ready to have the silver bullet back on the road.

What ive done so far...
- BSM delete (Kerma TDI)
- Timing Belt & Water Pump (Kerma)
- 94R Battery Upgrade
- Engine Mounts
- EGR delete
- new TCM
- Intake cleaning
- Oil, air and fuel filters
- Trans flush
- Tires will be coming this week.

I cannot thank everyone enough for all the various walk-through's and posts that have helped me on the way. German engineering is different animal of course, but there is a method to the madness.

The last couple issues that still need to be addressed
- ABS Brake and Traction lights are all on
> ABS Module shows codes
01044 - Control Module Incorrectly Coded
35-00 - -
18036 - Powertrain Data Bus
P1628 - 35-00 - Missing Message from Steering Angle Sensor


> Auto Trans Module showing
17125 - Torque Converter Clutch
P0741 - 003 - Stuck OFF / No Power being transferred - MIL ON


- AC Condenser fan not coming on.
- Cannot get the key fob programmed to the car for some reason, it starts and there is not immobilizer issues, just no key-less entry

HOPEFULLY the torque converter is just as simple as topping off the trans with fluid if I didn't fill it completely during the flush. Fingers crossed. Then it would be a matter of doing the relearn procedure for the ABS and TCM modules. We shall see. So until my next update....thanks again everyone! Happy Holidays!!

welcometomyturbodies


Its nice to see you made an intro on your own. ;)

Any problems search TDI Wiki as that covers write ups and forum posts.

VAG Error Code: 01044


Fault Location:
Control Module Incorrectly Coded - Mechanical Failure

Possible Cause:
Coding Pin/Bridge does not match.
Incorrect Control Module Installed.
Control Module incorrectly coded.
Check mechanical condition of components.

Possible Solutions:
Check/Fix Coding Pin/Bridge in Wiring.
Check Control Module part numbers.
Check/Fix Control Module Coding.
See Vehicle Specific Diagnostic Procedures for Details.

VAG Error Code: 01044


Fault Location:
Control Module Incorrectly Coded - Intermittent

Possible Cause:
Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active.
Reduced Functionality.

Control Module incorrectly either not coded or incorrectly coded.

Possible Solutions:
Check Gateway Installation List.
Check/Fix Control Module Coding.
See Vehicle Specific Diagnostic Procedures for Details.

Special Notes:
When found in CAN-Gateway:
On a Long Coded module, use the Gateway Installation List to check for unreachable or not registered control modules.
Then update the Gateway [Installation List] by altering the Gateway Coding manually.
On a Short Coded modules, refresh the original coding with the same value. For example, code it from 00006 -to- 00006 without making an actual change.
When found in VW New Beetle/Cabriolet (1C/1Y/9C): Comfort System, this may be a Bug in the Control Module Software that will be resolved by refreshing the Coding with the same Value as described above with the CAN Gateway example.
When found in Brake Electronics (MK60EC1) while the Coding is NOT all Zeros, check the [19-CAN Gateway] > [Coding - 07].
An incorrect LHD/RHD Configuration may cause this Fault Code.
When found in the VW Passat (3B) Gateway Controller: Vehicles built through January 2000, the Gateway Software did not take in account for the ABS Controller. This fault code should be ignored. New Software was implemented after February 2000 that eliminated this fault code, however the coding should not be changed to add the ABS controller.

VAG Error Code: 01044


Fault Location:
Control Module Incorrectly Coded - Implausible Signal

Possible Cause:
Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active.
Reduced Functionality

Control Module incorrectly coded.

Possible Solutions:
Check/Fix Control Module Coding.
See Vehicle Specific Diagnostic Procedures for Details.

Special Notes:
Some Passat (3B/B5) around MY 2000 have a Firmware Bug which causes this Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) to be set in the CAN Gateway (19).
Service Documents for of those Cars indicate that this Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) should be ignored in that Module as long as the Coding matches the Vehicle Equipment.

VAG Error Code: 18036/005672

EOBD II Error Code: P1628

Fault Location:
Powertrain Data Bus, Missing Message from Steering Angle Sensor - No Signal

Possible Cause:
Wiring/Connector(s).
Steering angle sensor.
AntiLock Braking System (ABS) fault.

Possible Solutions:
Check/Replace all faulty Wiring/Connector(s).
Read Measuring Value Blocks (MVB).
