need code 17656 help!

HELP!... 2002 JETTA TDI, about 143,000 miles. Bought it 6 months ago, runs great! Had timing belt and fuel filter replaced at that time. Occasional 17656 code initially, but nothing lately until a week ago on a long trip. I clear it, but it comes back after a couple trips. Even when the engine light is on, it still runs great, plenty of power, starts instantly, idles smoothly. Getting upper-40's fuel milage. Hard to believe there's anything really wrong, but what should I be looking at to get rid of the intermittant code?...

I've read thru some of the posts and it seems to be a code that is caused by problems with the injection pump, but most posts mention the engine running badly, so not sure that's the cause of my code!

Did you ever solve this issue? I am having the same problem. The code shows, I can clear it, but it pops back up again. The IP was replaced, but I have adjusted the timing folowing procedure, and it runs perfect right now. I put a new fuel filter in at the same time as the pump replacement. Anyone have thoughts on this?

If it was a fuse, which would I be checking??

Should I just clean the wiring connector with electronic cleaner??

Any help would be great...thank you!
