      TIPS & FEATURES AEuro-Forum - READ!!   10/25/2016

      Tips and Features of AEuromotive Technical Site 1.    Quick Peek Feature:       Hover over any Topic/POST within a Specific Forum or NEW POST.  You’ll notice a pop up window displaying the Original (FIRST POST)
      tab containing the vehicle Information and the Diagnostic Issue.  Next to the FIRST POST tab, there is the LATEST POST tab.
      This is the LATEST Reply to that Topic/POST.  It may contain the FIX,NOT FIXED, or UPDATE to the ongoing Topic/POST. 2.    SEARCH Feature: If you have not tried the SEARCH Engine, I’d advise that you do.
      START at the YELLOW Arrow. Then choose from the flip out flag where you wish to begin your initial search. 
      Use Word, or Words separated by a space or comma.  The more words you enter, the wider the search. 
      DO NOT use words like: the, of, abbreviations will not work.  BE Specific!       You’ll be directed to the second “Refinement Page”.  From there, you can narrow the search criteria, by clicking
      +MORE SEARCH OPTIONS. From there attempt to use both sides of the OPTIONS Menu. 
      USE the SEARCH Engine and get comfortable with navigating it. 2a. TSB/SIB/Recalls/Campaigns SEARCH Feature:       Currently, I am working on having the Feature to SEARCH ONLY for TSB/SIB/Recalls/Campaigns for this site. 
      This is in YELLOW type, as it is currently under development.  I hope to get this to work within the initial SEARCH
      Feature when you CLICK in the SEARCH Field, that "flag" will kick out.  In that Categories list, you'll see a TSB link.
      Within this link, when clicked, you'll choose the MAKE of the vehicle.  Immediately, ENTER all of the WORD or WORDS
      within the TEXT SEARCH FIELD. CLICK the MAGNIFYING GLASS, OR ENTER.
      ALL Technical Service Bulletins RELATED to THAT MAKE will be SEARCHED, and DISPLAYED. 
      Quick SEARCH Feature has been refined for shorter results. I have already ran through some tests with BMW, Mercedes and VW/Audi.        IT WORKS!.  Note! I still have hundreds of TSB/SIB/Recalls,Campaigns, and other related Technical Service Bulletins!
      And this is NOT counting the Domestic and Asian Vehicle MAKES!!  OH, Whoa is ME!!
      Approximately 789 additional FACTORY TSB's in General to do for European.....over 1400 additional TSB Documents
      for Domestic and Asian.  I WILL GET THEM DONE, BUT i HAVE TO DO IT MY WAY (I GIVE GOOD MASSAGE)! FEEDBACK IS ALWAYS WELCOMED....GOOD OR BAD.  GROW A SET AND TALK TO ME.  IF SOMETHING ISN'T RIGHT,
      TELL ME.  MY SKIN LAST MEASURED WITH MY CALIPER WAS 4.378.9" THICK!  USE THIS AND MANY OTHER FEATURES MY FRIENDS! PETER AND I ARE TIRELESSLY ATTACKING THIS SITE WITH $$$$$$
      AND HARD, TIME CONSUMING WORK.  IF YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED............YOU ARE NOT LOOKING!! 3.    Technical Documents Tab: By clicking the Technical Documents Tab, you can SEARCH for TSB’s, SIB’s, and Campaigns.
      and Recalls are available to you.  We have over 1500 document of Factory Level that can help. 
      Again, USE the SEARCH Engine to narrow your results.  Get comfortable with using this great resource. 4. HYPERLINKED Text Within REPLIES in the Topic / POST, Hyperlinks can be added to that reply, or an original Topic / POST.
      It is important that the browser that you are using is set to OPEN a new TAB when a click is clicked. In MOZILLA Browser, quite easy to do.
      Go to the top of your MOZILLA browser and click TOOLS > OPTIONS > GENERAL (on the left sidebar). 
      Then check the check box that states "Open New Windows in a new tab instead" Then, when you click a helpful Hyperlink, a new tab, and windows will open to your top right and will go to the
      hyperlinked page! WARNING!! I would advise, if you are NOT "Computer Literate"....NOT to attempt to Hyperlink Text, as this
      may cause damage to your POST.  ONLY Experienced, "Computer Savvy" Technicians are capable of
      doing this action. 5. STORE Page Check out our STORE.  We have a number of items from Diagnostic Machines, Scanners, Software,
      Training Manuals, and anything that you may wish to purchase.  If it's not there....contact us regarding
      your needs.  We are there to service your everyday Diagnostic and Computer needs.....ALL OEM. NONE of our scanners and Diagnostic Computers are "CLONES, or CLONED" Software.  It is all
      within the "LEGIT" realm for ONLINE and OFFLINE Diagnostic Purposes.  Technology can be your
      friend........or your enemy.  It is your choice.............you get what you pay for HERE!! 6. Member Map This FEATURE is used by ALL Members to locate another Member.  This FEATURE is useful to: Locate another Member in the AREA for help Locate a Member who can help your customer stranded in another Member's Area Quick Location of all the Members of this Collective Help each other make $$$$$$$$$$$$$ Please click the Member Map tab, and register your location.  This system works well for
      all of the Members and may provide you with valuable information, in which to promote
      your Facility!           7. CLOSING/Updating your Topic/POSTS            It is imperative that ALL Topic/Posts are updated on at least a weekly basis, while also, CLOSING your
                Topic/POSTS when you have completed your repairs.  ALL POSTS MUST be CLOSED within 21 Days, or
                updated to keep your ongoing POST from being suspended.           Every time a Member Logs into the site, that member can check how many POSTS he has opened. 
                When first logged in, you will see an initial screen with all of the ongoing POSTS that are OPEN.

                If there are more than 3 OPEN or ongoing POSTS, the Member will NOT be able to add another
                Topic/POST, until one of the 3 POSTS are CLOSED.  If by chance you missed that opening screen
                follow this procedure to see what POSTS are currently OPEN.          Click the “Activity” tab > then click “My Activity Streams” > then click “My Open Topics.
               My Open Topics LIST has been modified to ONLY show the OPEN POSTS without REPLIES. 
               This will make for shorter SEARCHES of your OPEN POSTS.          This will display all of your current OPEN POSTS.  From there, you can close them, if you forgot to,
               or they are NOT FIXED, or FIXED.  PLEASE, be detailed in the last REPLY, so this will help another
               Member at some time, whether you FIXED or did NOT FIX the vehicle.  Details are what help us all, so
               please be a productive Member of this site.  I for one will appreciate your efforts. There is a NEW Feature that I have had out Guru Programmer to the site: 2/13/2017 This feature incorporates a "Back to TOP" Button at the bottom of the POSTS Some POSTS are lengthy in information, which makes scrolling the page, or pages time consuming.  Every little bit
      adds up while researching.  TIME is $$$$$, as I always preach.  So now, when needed, you can scroll to the bottom
      of the POST, then click the "Back to TOP" button to go to the top of that POST.         8. FACEBOOK & Twitter Links         For now, located by the AEuromotive Logo, you'll see some small Facebook & Twitter links.  Mind you,
              these will be replaced with larger ICONS.  This is being worked on as I type.  My coder is getting this accomplished.
              For now, they are linked to the AEuromotive Facebook, and to Peter's Twitter Account LIVE.  I DON'T "TWEET"
             You wish to know my opinion...........better grow an extra inch of skin, then call me and ask.
             Try them, use this to contact Peter.        Again, when this TEXT turns White, it is totally implemented!         9. PICTURES IN POSTS         This FEATURE has been implemented.  When inserting a picture within the POST, make it as small as possible
              to fit within the constraints of the frame.  Any one can then CLICK on the PICTURE to open a new window and
              see the LARGER Version that you had uploaded to the POST.  Please try to keep the original picture within
              2 - 3 MEG in size!  Once you upload the picture, click on that picture and use the corners to shrink
              to fit.
             You can also resize the pictures you add to the POST.  Once you save the POST, click on the picture, you'll
             have the Feature to scroll through all pictures resized in your POST.       10. F5 "REFRESH" Feature         This has always been a WINDOWS Feature, but I thought I'd put this up for those that didn't know:         I have tested FF, IE7, Opera and Chrome.    F5 usually updates the page only if it is modified. The browser usually tries to use all types of cache as much
             as possible and adds an "If-modified-since" header to the request. Opera differs by sending a "Cache-Control: no-cache"        CTRL-F5 is used to force an update, disregarding any cache. IE7 adds an "Cache-Control: no-cache", as does FF,
            which also adds "Pragma: no-cache". Chrome does a normal "If-modified-since" and Opera ignores the key. 11. InfoServer 1 and VMDiagnostics Server InfoServer 1 and VMDiagnostics are already in progress, as InfoServer 1 will be comprised of the following Technical
      Information: 1. ISO Diagnostic Programs updated on a weekly basis.  You will need an ISO Application to unzip, or run these programs
          on a "Virtual DVD" 2. PDF Diagnostic Training and Information Documents, requiring you to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your
          computer.  You can get it here for FREE: https://get.adobe.com/reader/ 3.   InfoServer 1 is completed and ALMOST ready to connect to this site.  We are waiting for our security license, and our
           OpenVPN setup.  The SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificate is in the process of being issued. And STILL waiting!! 4.   All European, Asian and Domestic Makes and Model Information and User Manuals 5.   All Downloads from the InfoServer 1 will be monitored by Platinum Members that do so.  So I can run a report of
           what and when a download occurred.  Limit is 6 - 8GB per Day VMDiagnostics will be comprised of the following Technical Information: Launch Date for February 2017 This InfoServer 2 is a 4.6+GHz machine with up to 64 Gig of RAM and SSHD (Solid State Drives)
      as to prevent lag and slow response as most Virtualized Systems are. This is no "Puppy" System,
      "Full Tilt Boogie" Machine!! 1.   Virtual Programs running LIVE on this Server for Members to access and use Daily (Charge per Day Access) a.  Mercedes
      b. BMW
      c. Mini Cooper
      d.  Volkswagen
      e. Audi
      f. Any other European Make that I can get their FACTORY Programs to run on a  "Virtual Platform"
      g. Domestic Makes (GM, FORD, Chrysler, etc.)
      h.  Asian Makes (Honda, Hyundai, KIA, Mitsubishi, etc.)
      i.  Any Diagnostic Programs that can be "Virtually" operational, I will do so With ALL of the above upcoming Technical Systems coming on line....YOU will be responsible
      for Downloading and Installing these programs...............NOT me.  it is the responsibility of the USER,
      that will have to sign off on the agreement to download and install the programs.  Instructions are included
      in the folders. Please Note!  I will be adding to this ANNOUNCEMENT periodically, so keep coming back to this, and see what other
      Features I have added.  I still have a dozen to add to this ANNOUNCEMENT, as we have upgraded this Forum since
      yesterday 10/24/2016.  Stay Tuned!!

Throttle Control Valve Issue

11 posts in this topic

VIN: WAULL44E16N016489
Production Month / Vehicle Year: March / 2006
Make: Audi
Model: A8 Quattro Sedan (4E2)
Engine: V8-4.2L (BGK)
Transmission: Automatic 6-Speed
Mileage: 138000
Affected System: Electrical / Electronic Controllers / Control Units / System Control
Description of Issue: Hesitation / Cuts Out / Poor Acceleration
Scan Tool: VW-Audi VCDS (VAG-Com)
Related Repair History: Throttle control unit replaced, Engine control module replaced.
Diagnostics / Tests Performed:

First off... Sorry I don't have the full autoscan at this time. 

I thought I saved it from when it was here last apparently not.   
The car is not here at this time but will be back for further diagnosis. 

Anyway, the vehicle came in with intermittent fault for Throttle Control issues and vehicle going into limp mode. 
The first time that it came in, I found the faults to be possibly related to battery regulation issue. 

I replaced the battery and re-coded battery after replacement and cleared fault.  About 3000 miles later the faults
re-occured, but no battery regulation faults were present.  

This time we replaced the Throttle Control unit.  Vehicle left.... about 4000 miles later..  Same thing... 
Next we replaced the ECM without having the ability to actually pinpoint the fault. 
After each comeback we would drive the car for around 100 miles or more without any symptoms.   

I scope all the 5V circuits and signal Throttle signals and found no issues present during all the times
that we've had it.   

The car will be back in a week so I am looking to have some more insight on what I could do next. 

Thanks

So for now, being I cannot see if there are any CAN System Faults, that
may be related to this Throttle Control Issue.

Perform a HARD reset to the system, as it may be stuck on STOOPID.
MAKE SURE you have the Radio Code!!!!!

This happens if the Voltage drops, or is low in the system. REMEMBER....
Everything Electrical & Electronic STARTS at the Battry!

You'll have to give me a report on the following:

  1. Battery Condition (LOAD and Charging)
  2. Alternator Condition (LOAD and Charging)
    a. Being this is an A* Model, you may be able to see if there is an Energy Diagnosis Report
    related to SoC and SoH (State of charge....State of Health)
  3. CAN System Condition (Check for ANY Faults)
  4. AutoScan the ENTIRE Vehicle
  5. Check Harness
  6. Check ALL Ground POINTS
  7. Make Sure that Throttle Body is Adapted
  8. Check ALL Fuses

This way, ALL points are covered.  if the Throttle Body is hanging, or has
not be properly adapted, the above can continue to happen.

i suggest possibly running additional / redundant wires to Throttle body assembly
Just in case wiring or continuity is an intermittent issue.

This is why a HARD System reset is needed to clear all capacitance out of ALL
the Controllers, especially the ECM.  Some codes are stored in "volatile" Memory, which a
scan tool cannot clear (eg. airbag/SRS controllers)

MAKE SURE you have the Radio Code!!!!!

Not like the old days that you could remove the radio and see the code on the back....just like the IC
Radio Codes are now retrieved through the GeKo, at the Dealer.  MOST of the time.

I updated the autoscan. 

You guys are so smart.  I think Im seeing the big picture on this one.  
As said best by Angelo B+ first..  

Please update me with your thoughts on this thanks.

You might want to try to read  throttle, throttle actuator , and TPS  while someone else is driving  you can read measure
blocks....I believe it is block 135.

I had a similar case that drove me nuts.:25_money_mouth:   Suddenly I happened to notice while on the road,  when I applied the
brakes, the values would change slightly. When I brought it back in ,I removed the underhood  fuse box where the
ECM is located driver's side and noticed that there was water intrusion, and the connectors were corroded.

Aside from the very obvious throttle codes, if i ever see a Quiescent Battery Fault 3 or above, that is always where
I start!

Customer needs to pay for that $300.00 battery along with coding first before any other diagnostic.
Battery/charging systems cause so MANY weird issues on intelligent battery module cars.

After that i would definitely start looking at wiring for a break or chaffing of any kind....

I've seen it where the pins break off inside the connector but still make enough contact for it to be
functional. On these cars, i depin the throttle connector to check them for any breaks.

The throttle body connector on the V8 is one of the most disconnected components on the car
when servicing, so keep an eye out for that!

And it goes without stating the obvious....AC Ripple from the alternator.  Anything higher than~100 mVAC is
an indication that the diode pack is going south.

AC Ripple from the alternator (excessive AC Ripple), makes the controller do "Weird and Wild" things from alternating
idle (fluctuation)....to improper Throttle Body Adaptations to say the least.

ALWAYS check Alternator Ripple during a Charging system test.  Rule of thumb < ~120 mVAC..........especially
when under a LOAD Test at 1500RPM Minumum.

I had an {near identical} issue like this on an AUDI A3 3.0L of the same era some time back. 

Throttle actuator fault returned after 700-1000 miles of driving, even after replacing the throttle assembly.

I do believe we ended up replacing a LONG section of the engine wiring harness between the throttle-actuator
connection and ECM.   Recollection says that we ran a length of "by-pass harness" over the original harness first
for testing purposes.

After it did not return for 2k-3K miles we integrated the new wiring into the original harness routing.
that was the end of it,...from what i remember.  

I think this was a problem on a lot of early-build BMW Z3 too. defect in the harness some where.  
Makes me wish I had time to *actually find* and SEE the spot of the wiring defect.  
But, the way they route the harness on a lot of these cars; nobody really has time to go on a treasure
hunt like that.  NOT for FREE anyway!

I have seen lot of throttle issues with 2009 and newer VW and they all needed new connector and wiring for throttle body.
Dealer sells connector and 6 wires for those 4 cylinder engines so maybe Audi offers same thing .

It is possible that it is same wiring. Part numbers  are:

4H0-973-713  one of those

000-979-025EA   two of those

000-979-150EA one of those

4B0-972-740  six of those

Might not hurt to check pin drag on that throttle connector.
Throttle sensors are quite picky when it comes to any minor interruptions/glitches in voltage.

Agree with the other posts too, wiring issue, maybe corrosion somewhere and under just the right condition it
will set the faults. Pin drag nice and easy to check though.
Like Carlos said, that connector comes off quite a bit. We often see issues with the throttle connector too.
