I bought a beat up 2002 New Beetle 1.9L tdi. The error codes are legion.

I have already fixed a bunch of mechanical issues with help of PickNPull, and there are probably still a few more.

But most of the codes appear to be electrical related. I'm wondering if there could be one or a couple of common causes which if I fix one it eliminates a multitude of codes. Or, do I need to attack them one-by-one in whatever order?

I've lookup up each code on Ross-Tech Wiki, with possible causes and solutions and put them all into a spreadsheet, and flagged all that are possibly electrical related.

Worksheet here: (as OpenOffice Calc)
or here: (as PDF, also attached)

Or, here's just the list:
DTC Code DTC Status DTC content
17656 (P1248) Passive/Sporadic Start of injections regulation, Control difference-
17055 Passive/Sporadic Cylinder 1 Glow Plug Circuit-
17057 (P0673) Cylinder 3 Glow Plug Circuit (Q12): Electrical Fault
17964 (P1556) Passive/Sporadic Charge pressure control, Value below lower control limit-
17978 Active/static Engine Control Module (ECM) disabled-Fault 1 02 - Transmission Control Module
01192 Passive/Sporadic Torque converter lock-up clutch - Mechanical malfunction

Fault 4 03 - Brakes 1
65535 Active/static Control module faulty - Electrical malfunction in circuit
00283 Passive/Sporadic Left front ABS wheel speed sensor - G47 - mechanical malfunction
00283 Active/static Left front ABS wheel speed sensor - G47 - Electrical malfunction in circuit

Fault 8 46 - Central Module Comfort System
01330 Passive/Sporadic Central control module for convenience system - J393 - Voltage supply too low
01141 Passive/Sporadic Luggage compartment unlocking switch - E165 - Implausible signal
01044 Active/static Control Module incorrectly coded - lost23
01331 Passive/Sporadic Door control module on driver side - J386 - Voltage supply too low
00932 Active/static Window regulator motor on driver side - V147 - no adjustment or incorrect adjustment
01332 Passive/Sporadic Door control module on passenger side - J387 - Voltage supply too low
01359 Passive/Sporadic Interior locking switch on passenger side - E198 - Implausible signal
00933 Passive/Sporadic Window regulator motor on passenger side - V148 - no adjustment or incorrect adjustment

Other Symptoms
Low gas indicator always on
Digital Odometer sometimes partially showing
Left Blinker blinking quickly
Brake problem indicator

Again, I'm just looking to see if someone has an idea what problem I should attack first which may take care of multiple codes at once.

Much Appreciated.
