Idle speed stabilization is integrated in the
throttle valve control module -J338-. In the
housing opposite the throttle valve are Throttle
Position (TP) sensor -G69-, Closed Throttle
Position (CTP) switch -F60-, throttle drive -G186-
and angle sensor -1- for throttle drive -G187-.
The housing should not be opened.
The individual components cannot be replaced or
mechanically adjusted. All adjustments are
accomplished by the VAG1551 Scan Tool (ST)
using the "Basic Setting" function 04.
If the complete throttle valve control module is
without power (i.e. disconnected), the throttle
valve assumes a mechanical closed throttle
position that results in an increased idle speed of
1200-1300 RPM (with engine at operating
If only the Throttle Position (TP) actuator -V60- is
without power, the throttle valve also assumes a
mechanical closed throttle position (limp-home
position), but because the signal from the CTP
switch -F60- can still be recognized, a nearly
"normal" idle speed of approx. 900 RPM is
maintained with a corresponding reduction of the
ignition timing advance.

- Press buttons -0- and -6- to select "End Output"
function 06, and press -Q- button to confirm
- Switch ignition off.
The values displayed in display field 3 depend on
the calibration of the Throttle Position (TP)
sensor and do not correspond with the actual
throttle valve opening in degrees. The maximum
displayed value is 90.0 . If the throttle angle value does not increase
- Replace throttle valve control module -J338-.
