Hi,

I've been looking at a 150pd (ARL) FR Tdi, it's got a problem with intermittant power loss, which rectifies itself when the engine is turned off and back on.

The codes i've got out of it are:

17957 - Boost Pressure Regulation Valve (N75): Open or Short to Ground
P1549 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
18080 - Coolant Fan Control 1: Open or Short to Ground
P1672 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
17932 - Fuel Pump Relay (J17): Open or Short to Ground
P1524 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
19461 - Relay for High-Output Preheating of Coolant (J360): Short to Plus
P3005 - 35-00 - -

All of which come back pretty quickly after being cleared.
I've had a search through the forum about these codes, and have found a couple of instances where people have had very similar occurances, but no definitive answer as to what might actually cure it.

The car has recently had the N75 replaced, but still suffers the same problem.

I wondered about the N75 possibly being the issue and have logged 011 for req vs actual performed during a 3rd gear, wide open throttle run.
Am I right in thinking here that the "Duty cycle" is what the N75 is actually sending to the wastegate actuator??

I'm quite happy to get some more (different) logs if they're gonna be of any help??

Thanks!

Was limp mode triggered at this point?

I'd be pulling up a wiring diagram looking to see if there is something in common to the 4 components giving trouble. Bad ground? Flaky +12 connection? Bad relay?

I think it is more likely to be a problem of this nature than a major component failure.
