We have received your NASTF feedback request regarding the message below. 008213 is an SAE hexadecimal OEM code that converts to a OBD P2015 diagnostic code. P2015 is defined as “Sensor for intake manifold flap position, range/performance. Since you are using the VAG-COM aftermarket scan tool we cannot determine why the code was not converted to the “standard” DTC code. That is done by the Scan tool software. Our Erwin service information web site ( contains generic scan tool books that provide diagnostics for all P codes and the P2015 is listed in the book for the 2009 Tiguan . Third party service information provider like Bentley Publishing are permitted to reprint our service information under license. Apparently they haven’t updated their service literature. We cannot control that either. There is a free DTC list on our Erwin site but we charge for repair information as do most other car manufacturers. Thank you for your feedback.
