    2011 gti - fault p0118

    Was riding salt water today and suddenly got a Check Engine Light and Scroll. While still running I pulled P0118 from the cluster.

    My understanding is this is a minor Fault Code, as it did NOT enter LIMP mode. So I continued to run back to shore while monitoring for changes.

    The code continued to come and go. Back on the trailer and heading for home I stopped by a freshwater pond to flush the salt and never seen the code for the hour I was in fresh waiting for it to come back… it never did.

    It does not consistently appear.

    FAULT:
    -----
    P0118
    Engine temperature sensor short circuit to 12 V
    Engine temperature sensor opencircuit

    Possible cause:
    Engine overheated or damaged sensor.
    Service action:

    Check for debris or blockage in cooling system.
    Check the sensor for approximately 2280 to 2736 ohms at 19 to 21°C (66 to 70°F).

    Check for approximately 2280 to 2736 ohms at 19 to 21°C (66 to 70°F) between ECM connector pins 11 and 27.
    ----



    I will work to check the sensor connector. Other ideas/thoughts/comments?
    Have you fellows seen this before?
    THANKS.

    Sensor connector looks fine and no loose wires from what I can tell.

    Other thoughts? Have you guys seen this before? Common?

    Thanks

    In talking with the Dealer (I dropped in, but without my ski), he confirmed the code details and said it could have been some debris stuck and may have cleared on its own - thus the come and going of the code, and haven't seen it in over an hour of running.

    I'll continue to monitor and report what ever if I find.

    Just got the same weird engine codes, but it was going out before I could look out for the codes. But in the engine defense, I was just a little but abusing of them!

    Did you get any other issues ?
