    New member needing some advise

    Hi all,

    I am a new member in this forum.

    I recently bought a 2005 Golf Plus 1.6 FSI, clocked 116k miles. I live in Worthing.

    After a couple of months the MIL went on and when scanned it showed error for the EGR. Having investigated the EGR, I replaced the EGR.

    Right after replacing the EGR and clearing the codes, a new code popped up - P0016/$10: Crankshaft Position Camshaft Position Correlation Bank 1 Sensor A. This error only pops up after a few cranks and some driving, it doesn't show immediately after clearing the code. I have check the sensor and tried replacing it with a new sensor but this did not solve the problem, the error code popped up after a bit of use. There is no deterioration of the engine performance and no problem with cranking the engine. No nasty sound around the timing chain.

    In between this time, a new issue popped up. The passenger side door cannot be unlocked and the passenger side power window is not working. After a couple of weeks, the door unlocked itself. But then could not be unlocked after a few days. Every time this happens, the double signal lights are blinking (when i park and lock the car there is no light, when i come back to pick up the car a few hours later there is double signal blinking). I am not sure if this is related with the P0016 error at first, but now i am wondering if this could be a electrical / wiring issue. I have checked the wiring around the EGR, cam sensors and air intake, i do not see any damaged wires.

    Would like to understand if anyone has any experience or could advise before i invest in changing the timing chain.

    Thank you very much for any advise and sorry for the trouble.

    The clue with the P0016 code is that the signal is implausible, it is there but it is wrong. On your engine this will be a worn (maybe jumped) timing chain, we do loads of them.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
