Customer Question

my name is ***** *****. I had a CEL come on in my 2011 jetta tdi. the code is P048E, all my research says it is high voltage to the exhaust pressure control valve position sensor do I have to change the valve? The connector was damaged then repaired a year ago so I'm suspecting the repair at this point. When I was looking at the wiring harness it looked like there was a smaller harness coming off the main harness, that is what I was looking for
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I don't think the valve is sticking based on the error code I received
JA: OK got it. Last thing — VW Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

This fault is related to the exhaust flap more then likely the flaps spring is stuck and causing this issue . It's located in the middle of the exhaust , the good thing is that there is a Vw warranty extension on his issue and it's covered for up to 100,000 miles have them check it and they should cover it under the warranty extension . I hope this helps .
