Help needed
« on: 06 September 2021, 14:46 »
I bought a 2008 gti recently car was running fine until Friday.. came into a roundabout and car went into limp mode, abs light epc light and tyre pressure light🤔 I got the car home but now all the lights are gone . Car will start fine when cold but once it’s warm it struggles to idle and eventually dies. Only code I can find is p0100 which is say maf sensor. Just wondering has anyone every had something similar happen to them?

As strange as it seems a MAF sensor will illuminate these lamps, its to do with the ABS using the MAF to calculate engine torque IIRC.
