Blink Code 2111

If I remember correctly, the 2111 code is something that comes up when you 
run the fault codes with the car turned on but not running.  In other words 
it's a false positive.  Here's the proof:

...and look for the second paragraph after "BLINKING OUT THE CODES"

Thank you, and I just may be here all night.

Hey Guys,

   Been getting this code when I do the blink test.

2111 (Blink Fault Code), VAG1551/2 Fault Code Number 00513 RPM  sensor Open
or short circuit, Defective sensor & cables, metal fragments on  flywheel 

  If I pull the ECU fuse and re-check I get code 4444 meaning  everything is
OK. (car also seems to run noticably better). After driving a week  I 
to re-check and the 2111 code has returned(no other codes either). The  
speed sensor (G28)appears to be new so the PO may have been having the  same

Any experience, guesses or comments appreciated.
