P121 vw code

Keeps throwing out P121 code. I've replaced the throttle pedal which took away the p221 code, but the p121 remains.

There was TSB if I'm correct , it states to replace throttle body connector and wires(I think wires and connector housing comes separate , you have to put it together) with updated one from VW dealer.
You may want to look into it and check if it applies to your car.

ETC light is on, engine has problems starting.


The EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) is the "fly by wire" system that controls the throttle, it took the place of the cable that went from the gas pedal to the throttle body on VW. If this light is on and there is also a P0102, MAF (Mass Air Flow) related code stored in the vehicle's computer, the EPC may be caused indirectly from a faulty MAF. If the EPC is on and there is no other codes stored, it could be a faulty electronic throttle body or need to be re-programmed. The vehicle's computer must recognoze the throttle body so when replacing it with new or used it will need to be programmed at the dealer. Recently I replaced a MAF (a common problem on VW's) on a VW Golf and when I cleared the code the EPC went off as well.

2001 vw t4 tdi looses acceleration


The TDI.s are known for carbon build up in the egr cooler and intake manifold. Ive seen them so built up that you couldnt fit a pencil into the intake! Its a few hours of labor to get all the carbon out of there but the van will run like it used to! Book time is like 3 hrs to do it but well worth it. after its done youll agree! Ive been a ve audi tech for 10+ yrs. Ive done this procedure many times. Its easy to pull the throttle body off an have a look in the intake to see how bad it is. only takes 25 min or so.

Correct fuel pressure on the 5.7 in my 1999 gmc 3500 van?


Check the TPS. If you code the ECU there might be a P121 stored in the OBD2 port. If tere is no code the a cloged converter will be your best bet.

Check the engine codes, and replace or repair the faulty sensor (most likely the MAF sensor).
