Hello all,

I'm new to this forum and looking forward to learning from you all!

This is my first VW. Bought it for the wife and already having buyers remorse. It just seems over engineered and difficult to find good information on resolving issues.

Here's the car....2006 VW Beetle Convertible with 2.5

Just got the following codes from my mechanic....01112, 09217, 09746, 00055, 00258, 00049...does anyone know what these are and how to fix them?

Looking forward to replies!

Do you know what kind of scanner they used to scan the car? They don't appear to be VW codes from a VW scanner, but they aren't generic codes either.

Thanks for the reply smileybug! No, don't know what scanner used.

He did give me the following....

01112 - evap purge control valve
09217 - evap leak detect pump control circuit
09746 - a/c refrig distribution valve short to ground
00055 - oxygen sensor B152 heating circuit
00258 - mass airflow sensor signal too low
00049 - oxygen sensor B151 heating circuit

Also, it would be good to get it on a VW scanner, or even one from Autozone to get the generic codes. I really am unsure as to what those codes are and being able to match them with VW code definitions would be helpful.

Multiple ground to short codes

19044/P2612/009746 - Ross-Tech Wiki

00055 - oxygen sensor B152 heating circuit (bank 1 sensor 2; instead of "b152"?)

00258 - Ross-Tech Wiki

00049 - oxygen sensor B151 heating circuit (bank 1 sensor 1; instead of "b152"?)

Typically, when the heating circuit is bad; the 02 sensor, needs replaced. This can be tested; using a multimeter, according to the service manual testing procedure (a simple continuity test). Genuine Bosch 02 sensors; are the way to go, get the "oe" version, not the universal type. You can look up yours here: be sure to search with your engine code:

You can find your engine code; by looking here:

You have allot of typical issues; don't get discouraged, you will need to work through the problems that are typical of a older car. We are all here to help; let us know, if you want to fix things yourself or if you want a professional shop, to handle things. :flipper:

There are free service manuals online; you can check them out here:

Thanks Billymade for the reply and information! Very helpful! I'm a D.I.Y. kind of guy. But I know my limitations. I will be counting on this forum to help get me through this and other issues. I also plan on passing on my experiences in hopes of helping others.
