97 Passat Error Codes

I've been thru some of the stuff posted, fan motor, shocks, alternator, a/c compressor and the seemingly ever present yellow light on my dash. My inspection is due this month and I went too local parts store and had my error codes read po410/po440 the latter was maybe a purge vale. Anybody out there with other diagnosis?

Try a google search on "Diagnostic trouble codes". I found a VW on-line technical library that gave me mine. I have a $179 scanner that actually gave me my code #. I looked it up and changed the sensor. The temperature was near 20F when I had to change it!!! Hope it's warmer for you!

Continued..

If I am correct, the code you are looking for is part of the OBDII system (1996 vehicles or newer). It's a standard regulating what "On Board Diagnostic" codes represent. good luck

440 is evap problem, can't find 410 for a passat, but 411 is secondary air injection

440, aside from a loose gas cap, the solenoids do go bad for both systems often

Auto mechanic replaced purge valve and the crappie woven hose that loops under the intake manifold. As I turned into inspection the check engine light appeared with error code PO411. Replaced solenoid valve part #191-906-283-A at $6.50 a real bargain which clear the code. I got thru inspection and have driven for a few days without the yellow light.

That is the exact error code that was read on my diagnostic today - I know nothing about cars - should it be fixed immediately or is it Ok to let go for awhile. The garage did clear the code and the light went but most likely will come back on.

Inspection time again and my Check engine light was on with all VR6 owners favorite error code "P0411 Secondary Air Incorrect flow detected". Replaced the same part as in 2005 "191-906-283-A". In 2005 this part was $6.64 from the dealer, the dealer now wants $85 I found it on line for $50 plus shipping.
I have a question about the fuses on drivers side under the hood just behind the battery in front of the window washer reservoir. There are three fuses, a 50A metal strip, a 30A and a 5A. What is the 5A fuse for?

This fuse keeps blowing and I am not sure if it has anything to do with the Seconday Air System.
