VAG Codes VS SAE Codes

Just got my Factory Repair Manual in the mail and had my oil changed. As part of the oil change the shop ran a diagnostic using a computer and came up with VAG codes 01559, 01558, 01557, and 01482. I expected to go directly to this error code in the manual and have it tell me what needs to be replaced.
1] Is this realistic? 2]The manual references SAE codes which all have a "P" Orefix and start at P1600 how do I cross this to a VAG code?

I saw this table in the manual. But it starts with SAE codes 16000 and higher. My codes are all in the 10500 range. (VAG codes 01559, 01558, 01557, and 01482). Am I missing something? Thanks, TT

Let's try this again.

I saw this table in the manual. But it starts with SAE codes 01600 and higher. My codes are all in the 01500 range. (VAG codes 01559, 01558, 01557, and 01482). Am I missing something? Thanks, TT

TTippetsaudi,

There appears to be some confusion or mis-information in your data. You may need to re-check these codes. Your codes seem to most closely correspond to SAE P-codes, not VAG codes. For instance the P1557 is: "Charge Pressure Contr. Positive Deviation". 01557 does not exist. VAG codes appear to start at 16394, at least in my manuals. While there may actually be VAG codes below this range, I don't think that's what yours are. I don't think you are going to find VAG codes 01557 to 01559, because they do not appear to be VAG codes.

P1482 does not exist in my manuals either, but it is at least in a valid range. Perhaps you got a digit wrong?

Beyond that, you will not find a direct correlation between a specific code and a specific fix. Engineering in general is not that far advanced. These codes are based on sensor measurements and tell you about conditions that may be related to a failure. They are significant clues, but further work is needed to determine the cause. If you have a proper code, you can do a search in your Ebahn repair manual and click through the links to the appropriate place in the diagnostics tables. This will give you further indications of what to check and how.

Good Evening, Gentlemen,

Since VW/Audi was working with on-board diagnostics long before it became a government mandate, every VW/Audi system or component malfunction is assigned a VAG code. It started with the old blink codes and progressed from there.

That means that things like “CD access time” have a VAG code (02766), but not a P-code (or U-code, C-code or B-code). The last time I counted, there were well over 19,000 current VAG codes, with a potential of 100,000. When you factor in the failure mode that most codes have, the number is even higher.

For VW/Audi, P-codes start at P0010 (VAG 16394) and run through U1009 (VAG 29705). Numbering is not completely consecutive with gaps here and there.

Yes, VAG codes 01557, 01558, 01559 and 01482 are valid and all reference central locking in the driver’s door. None have P-codes since they do not relate to emissions.

The complete VAG listing is not in the public domain and exists in several of VW’s diagnostic scan tools. As a result, I do not have permission to throw it out on the internet. Remember also that you can only get to these codes by accessing other, non-engine diagnostic areas. Address word 46 should get you the four VAG codes above.

Art,

Oops. Thanks for clearing that up. I guess I went out on a limb here. TTippetsaudi's data now makes sense. It's too bad that data is not available.

Go to this link. http://audi100.selbst-doku.de/Main/VAG-COM-Fehlernummern All the codes are listed in German.
Copy the text next to the code into this http://www.worldlingo.com/en/products_services/worldlingo_translator.html free translation site and translate to English.

I just tried it and it works like a charm.

Among all the detecting activities, gold metal detecting is the most interesting one. It can not only relax both your body and mind , but also let you gain a big fortune if you are lucky enough. Next time when you feel bored, you can pick up a metal detector for gold and have a try.

As you know, we all hunt treasure relentlessly and with great passion, and although we have assembled what some would consider awesome piles of coins and artifacts, other metal detecting finds and the like
the truth is that after a lifetime of treasure hunting, the cost of equipment, gas, food, and other expenses outweighs the true value of the objects by a landslide. In other words, we are not in this hobby to make a living off of the objects we dig up, and they couldn’t, even if that was indeed our goal.
