diagnostics fault code p0405 on 2011 polo bluemotion

Post by rolo-polo » Mon Aug 04, 2014 7:21 pm

please can someone help me

i purchased my first polo and all was well for first 3 months ,last week i got the check engine/catalyst warning light that look like this

few days later the light went out but now its came back on and its been 4 days.

today i had the diagnostics test done and the code p0405 came up "Exhaust Gas Recirculation Sensor A Circuit Low"

is this a common fault? ive read that its common for the warning light to come on....

i dont know where to start , i cannot afford to take car to vw or local garage as i dont have the money but i am prepared to fix or replace myself

any advice will be highly appreciated

Hi rolo-polo

I bought a 2012 VW polo 1.2 tdi BlueMotion. I have the same problem with mine, how was your issue resolved?

Hi Brent
Did you manage to get your problem sorted out? I have a check engine light and glow plug light lit and error codes P0405 nd P0238.
