Customer Question
2000 VW Beetle with the...
2000 VW Beetle with the 1.9 Diesel. We had the car given to us as it has had a lot of emissions problems. I have gotten most of them corrected. This is the wifes' car and I rarely drive it. A couple of years we were in WV and it went into what I later found was a safe mode prob
programmed into the computer. Restarting the car always corrected it. Now, apparently the turbo hasn't worked for a while which I just found out. Just about every emissions component has been replaced except the MAP sensor. My Haynes manual shows it in a spot that isn't correct. I was told in may be o the inner side of the intercooler but I can't find it. I have a new one to put in. According to what I can determine the MAP controls the turbo waste gate which may explain my problems with the turbo. Where the #@$% is this MAP sensor and will it keep the turbo from kicking in?
