    P2015 Intake Manifold code

    Hi Guys,

    I got the p2015 code today for the intake manifold, can you just replace the sensor or does it come in a complete kit? Thanks.

    Hey Mate

    Same thing happened to my My11 GTI a few months ago. The sensor is part of the manifold. Can't be serviced or replaced. Cost around $1300 to replace mine at VW.

    Front the Ross Tech website

    18447/P2015/008213 - Intake Manifold Flap Position Sensor (Bank 1): Implausible Signal

    Possible Symptoms
    Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) ON
    Power Loss
    Possible Causes
    Intake Manifold Flap faulty
    Intake Manifold Flap Motor (V157) stuck/faulty
    Engine Control Module Software/Firmware Version faulty
    Wiring and/or Connector(s) from/to Intake Manifold Flap Motor (V157) faulty
    Possible Solutions
    Check Intake Manifold Flap
    Check/Replace Intake Manifold Flap Motor (V157)
    Perform Output Tests/Basic Setting
    Check Wiring and/or Connector(s) from/to Intake Manifold Flap Motor (V157)
    Special Notes
    In some Cases the Issue can only be resolved by Replacing the whole Intake Manifold.
    The Intake Manifold Flap Motor (V157) and Manifold Runner Position Sensor (G336) may be Part of the same Unit.
    When found in a VW Golf/Jetta (1K): 1.9l PD-TDI (BRM), check Engine Control Module (ECM) Software Version:
    03G-906-016-AB @ 7328 or 7550 as well as 03G-906-016-AC @ 7280 or 7551 do have a Software Error which requires a special Adaptation for the Intake Manifold Flap Motor (V157) which at this Point can only be performed with the Factory Tool.

    Sensor can be replaced alone however that isn't the cause of the issue. The flaps bind up in the manifold and cause incorrect correlation between where the ECU wants the flaps and where the sensor reads them at. New manifolds have been improved to fix the issue.

    Thought I'd bump this one up, is there any danger to driving it, I had the fault code and CEL and my mechanic said as long as it drives fine there will be no harm done to the engine.

    Only really used for emissions i believe and only at cold start. either way it won't cause the engine to blow up.

    I have replaced the intake manifold, code came up again. How do you correct the issue for sensor flaps so they are in the right position? They say 9/10 times its the intake manifold runners OR sensor failure. I am going to put a new sensor and clear code and see what happens.
