The first two refer to O2 heater circuits and the last three refer to throttle/pedal position sensor switch E, D and B respectively. The gas pedal does nothing but the car idles at about 1k. something caught some wires under the car that go to a sensor in front of and behind the catalytic converter and tie into a harness that goes up into the engine compartment and disappear into the firewall. I checked for continuity which appears good. Had to repair 1 broken wire but no change in the pedal.
2002 vw Jetta wagon 2.0 5spd

while replacing the shock strut,wheel hub,entire wheel knuckle on the front driver's side the axle slid out of its boot entirely.I've removed the bolts but i cannot remove the end of the axle.I've tapped it/hit with a hammer and pulled on it at different angles..still not budging.is the left axle attached in some way other than the 6 bolts?
also the replacement axle is for an automatic. could i use it anyway? they seem to be the same length and bolt pattern.
thanks
Trunk lock make a sound but does not release the latch. I need to get to the latch to see what the problem is.
Unfortunately my boyfriend was bored at work a few days ago and told me he took some STUFF under the hood apart to blow the engine clean and it has been fine but 2 days later it's turning over but won't start.. Now he's saying it's the timing belt..Jeez,,,Any body have any idea if he's right or should I check a few other things first
It lurches slightly in second gear, too. After the engine has run for a while, the lurching stops. This just started yesterday, Oct 15. I let out the clutch very slowly when I start out, but it lurches as soon as I release it. Is this a sign of the clutch failing?
My oil light won't go off after filling it with oil. I'm a car dummy.
The only way to put it in drive is to stick your finger in the gear shift hole and pull on something. I don't know what I'm touching or the name of it. I just know it unlock the gear.
The car act like it wants to crank but it won't. Does this problem have anything to do with a recall and how can it be fixed?
