2002 Volkswagen Golf TDI QuestionsTwo different error codes on my 2002 VW Golf TDI 1.9L. PO234 & PO402 (1 answer)
The first Code(po234) is a turbo over boost I was told. My mechanic is not sure how to address the repair and I have a certain disdain for VW dealers so...the second code is exactly what your forum described it as. Again, multiple troubleshooting steps listed but maybe that list can be narrowed...
my car starts just fine, but when i test out the volts level on the battery it says 12.31. what does this mean. do i need a new alternator? or is it something else?
