I searched for similar problem but didn't see any on this forum, so here's the query on my 2007 VW Jetta 1.4 petrol (electric steering column):
Engine Management Light is on and I have a fault code showing "Steering Column Module No Communications U0212 Open Circuit/Short With Ground"
So the U0212 is pretty common, but I have had this fault erased twice by mechanics, but Engine Management light reappears after few days. Though it does go off from time to time for few hours.
I have checked all fuses relating to steering column but all seemed fine. Used handy website for fuse board map: https://www.justanswer.com/vw-volksw...de-needed.html
Anyone have any experience with this? Or perhaps any info on how I check grounding points for the steering column control panel. I know this is under the steering wheel but looks beyond my ability to replace it (due to airbag etc).
Thanks in advance
