My 1999 mk4 is throwing codes p0341 and p1580. on 1999 Volkswagen GTI

It was starting up and I would put it in gear and drive and around 2500 rpm I would lose all power and it would stall on me. Now, it won't even start.

Asked by for the 1999 Volkswagen GTI
po341 is camshaft position sensor and p1580 is throttle actuator. i suggest you hav ethese diag by your mech these can be tricky.

which vehicle are you referring to??

Roy
It's a 1999.5 GTI MK4...I replaced the camshaft position sensor and it's still showing the code...and still won't start...so I still have the two codes...
did you do a compression test to verify timing belt??

Roy

if the timing belt broke or jumped time, it will set a cam sensor code. the spark plugs have to be removed and a tester installed for the amount of compression.

Roy
Do you think that could be the reason that I lose power at 2500 rpm and basically stall? Or do you think since I replaced the throttle body, TPS, and camshaft position sensor I just need it reprogrammed with VAG-COM?
