Re: In persuit if the infamous codes the rev counter jumps to 7200rpm, and other anomalies..

Okay, so that's the ABS relay. Never read about it here, nor did i know of
it's existence. Sorry for my ignorance.
I have looked under the bonnet :  No relay matching the description.

No, Doug.  You did not miss the initial post.
I do have the vehicle ID number, but the Danish distributor is *very*
reluctant/restrictive when comes to sharing info on a car they have not
imported ( ie. bought as new). Writing audi via their homepage, they tell me
that the Danish distributor will answer any question i might have. All they
would tell me was:
"Engine Code JY.. thats an 2,2litre 182 hp, not a model sold here. -No point
in giving me the Chassis number i can't tell you anything more"  (*#@!)

I'm worried 'bout that part.
Would an '87 turbo (fall 86 but 87 model) act this way, even if codes should
be pulled by the fuse-method ?

Call me paranoid, but..
I bought this car from a dealer wich was doing Audi-only (99 percent or so),
and maybe he (or the former owner) has replaced the ECU with an elderly

I think it was Phil, who called it (as i recall) 'nerdy' but essential to
know excatcly what you buy.
 - -Wish i knew this list earlier...

I need to pull the codes because i have periodically Overboost (i think)  /
(Very nice pull from approx 2400rpm :^) ) / (Abrupt unplesant wakeup call,
very annoying PITA  :^(  )

But how do i check the ECU-version, and where is it placed.
There is a Bosch-box placed left under the rear seat, but it only has a
WV-number and a serial # on it.

I suppose that when you're talking about KH,MC or MB etc. -engines it means
that the enginenumber starts with the letters KH,MC or MB etc.  or am i way
off ?
