About the Taos
The Taos first made its debut in 2018 for the Chinese market. However, it was released as the Tharu at this point. It was then released two years later for other markets like North America in 2020.
Of course, only a single generation has been released in such a short time.
In terms of the VW SUV lineup, it sits below only the largest offering – the VW Tiguan. Other rivals come from models like the Mazda CX-30, Hyundai Kona, and Kia Soul.
One of the most common issues for the Taos is P0070. This code indicates that there is a problem with the ambient air temperature (AAT) sensor.
In most cases, this fault code is caused by a faulty AAT sensor. It is also likely that there are electrical faults in the sensor circuit like damaged wires.
Another common problem for the model is P0171. This code indicates that the engine is running too lean, which means there is too much air in the combustion chamber.
There can potentially be a number of things causing an issue like this. Anything that prevents sufficient fuel entering the mixture or allows too much air into the chamber can cause this. Leaks in the vacuum are a very common cause, as well as things like a failing fuel pump.
P0037 is another common problem for the VW model. This code indicates that the heater circuit for the second oxygen sensor is malfunctioning.
In most cases, this will simply be caused by a faulty oxygen sensor. Like other sensor codes, it is also possible that there is an electrical fault in the sensor circuit.
