I've been receiving this same code from a CEL for the past 2 years. I thought it may be just a faulty secondary Air injection system however lately I have been hearing it run after starting the engine up on cold days only to still have the P0411 keep coming back after I erase the CEL codes...so this vacuum line that goes to the combination valve..well I cant seem to find it..could you please post up some pics or a better description of where it may be??? Thank you

Cool 3 different codes :(

My A4 has had multiple ongoing problems. I believe my turbo may be malfunctioning or I have a major valve/vacuum leak- I'm not sure. Here are the codes:
P0507-Idle air control system RPM higher than expected
P0722-Output speed sensor circuit no signal
P0171-system too lean-bank 1

ANYONE, PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!
-xoxo

Well it shouldn't be a problem if he lives close to the auto parts store. It won't kill the car especially if he has been using it daily

Got a call from my wife who told me that the CEL (which has been on for two months) started flashing and the car started running "funny" (she's not much of a car person). She immediately shut it off after pulling back into the garage. After reading a few of these posts, I have a couple of questions. Before I go too much farther, the car is a 2007 a-4 cabriolet Conv.

1. I recently drove off from a gas station with my gas cap off, and read here that that's bad. Assuming that no one tampered with my car, why would this cause the CEL to come on?

2. I have an extended warranty, and if its something serious like coils or the cat converter, are these things usually covered?

3. When they plug the car in and read the fault code, does it tell them how long the CEL has been on. I'm wondering if driving it so long with the light on will void the warranty?

Thanks in advance!

Whats the difference between a OBDII and A VAG

This thread is about as useful as the cel telling you anything besides it's on.
