Hi Guys,
I mave a 2015 Macan S Diesel and on Sunday when I started the car it had a check engine message, but saying it was OK to drive. The closest dealer is 2.5 hours away so I went to my local mechanic who scanned the codes (3) and I took a photo of the screen. We then cleared the codes and I thought I would look them up.

Silly me (and mechanic) as the codes are not in any format that makes sense. i.e. 5c2bh/23595 / refer to OEM repair information..... so the mechanic must have not had a reader that can make sense of this code (i'm guessing).

Any idea where to go next? can the fault be tracked using this code or will I need for this code to come back before I can get it read properly?

TIA

Ian

Take it to a normal mechanic or buy OBD2 reader and read the codes on your own. Then you will figure out the next step.

Thanks for the reply. It was a normal mechanic, however I think the mechanic was inexperienced. He read the codes - but they are of a format that doesn't relate to anything I have found on the net (they all start with a letter, these ones didn't). I think I will have to wait and see if they come back, unless I can read the cleared codes?

I would just get OBD2 tool and read them on your own. you can search here as this is widely discussed. What he read weren't the codes but something else.

Is that the full codes? What issues are you experiencing? I can stick codes in to piwis and tell you what they mean if you like?

Thanks for your reply. I haven't had any obvious issues. However the check engine light came back on tody after the codes were wiped about 3 or 4 days ago. If you could put them into piwis that would be great the codes are below.

5c2bh/23595
38fbh/14587
25afh/9647

Thankyou so much

Ian

I checked PIWIS and engine codes either start with 0 or with P. I don't think those codes are actual fault codes. I would suggest to get an OBD2 scanner and read the codes yourself once again and post them here .

I haven't had chance to check. But did you check the entire code against Ps and 0s?

Yep, I scrolled the whole CEL module list. It has a few diesel options so i did some random checks there tio, everything is either P or 0. Maybe there is a way to SQL with LIKE in PIWIS but I am not there yet.

Thanks for looking them up. They are back. So will try the head mechanic and see what he comes up with.
