Limp mode this morning

Hey all,

I just got back from a 4-day cruise yesterday and drove my car this morning and all of a sudden limp mode. All the famous Christmas tree lights came on. I pulled the codes and got the following:

// 1) 27C1 Info Tank leer bei Fehlereintrag
// 2) 2B15 Throttle valve actuator control monitor bank 1
// 3) 2B57 Motor emergency programm activated

Anyone know what could be the issue? Anyone know what that means for the 27C1? I hope its not the throttle actuator. Any help would be great.

1) 27C1 Info Tank leer bei Fehlereintrag <- translated literally as empty fuel tank.

But since it mentions throttle valve, then it looks like it has failed... how many miles??

I am at 72K miles. I am glad I didn't take the car for my drive to Florida for the cruise. It would have been a disappointing vacation if it happened during the 7 hour drive. I have ordered a throttle valve actuator so hopefully it resolves the problem.

Post some pictures during your progress... I'm sure a lot of people would love to see it. Hope it's an easy DIY for you.

I followed this diy. It's pretty self explanatory if you have taken off the plenum intake before.

I wrote that DIY and I don't do much more than simple maintenance. Don't let the dealership quotes fool you, it's not that bad of a job.

How'd it go? Let us know if that fixes it.

I just finished the actuator replacement and it seems to have fixed that problem. However, i did get an increased emissions light. I probably just need to clear the codes from before.
