They reset it but CEL came back on next day, so looks like I'll be booking it in for replacement sensor.

The problem I have is that I have already had the 24K5 update. Kind of stuck really as to what to do next. I'm not paying Â£1800 for a new ECU when the car is fine.

The car won't allowed me to rave the engine more than 2000 rot/min.
The mecanic its not sure, he told me that the throtle body can be faulty, but he wasn't sure.
Can anyone please help me!!!

EPC light on - Fault code - P1387 Control Module Malfunction Internal Altitude/Pressure Sensor.
only done 9k kms.
2 weeks back while running a scan via VCDS...my Engine -01 showed up this error. I thought must have been because of my fiddling around with VCDS..Cleared it ...No problem at all.
However after coming back from a 80 km drive I plugged in the VCDS to have a look and there it was the error was up again..I cleared it again thinking it was nothing serious as there weren't any Warning lights on the dash...
But after switching on and off the car the error seemed to come up again and after vcds had logged the error more than 2 times it showed MIL on ...however still NO warning light !
I went to the dealer and I was told that it was a static error and nothing to be worried about, he cleared it through VAS and had me on my way but funnily enough the error was still popping up on reaching home.
to the rescue came Briskoda and rwbaldwin ---all thanks to him for helping me out with all the valuable information.
P1387 is a failure of the altitude sensor within the ECU...i.e the ECU is faulty and needs to be replaced...
The glitch however is that if you keep driving at or near sea level there will be no warning light on the dash and the only indication of the error will be a slight hesitation from the engine.(no reason for a warranty claim-if you are within the warranty period)
However once the altitude rises/lower air density the the altitude sensor(which reduces the charge of the turbo charger to avoid it from overspeeding) will detect the malfunction and there will be EPC light on the dash.
There is no alternative for this error and the only way out is changing the ECU.
The causes of this can be excessive dust, moisture or humidity.
Sorry for the long read !

This occured to my 2008 vrs cr tdi, having just driven to Cornwall, a 500 mile journey late evening and night time, at a good pace! Limped it into Falmouth Skoda, who did the diagnostic and it came back DPF 90% full of soot and a fire warning! A new DPF and sensor, Â£1400 on warranty, but my car only has 22k on it and 4 months warranty left, to say I am concerned is an under statement!!
I was told that if the engine had been a PD there would have been fewer problems as they are seen as being bomb proof!! Dealer said they had seen quite a few with this problem!

A year ago I had the head gasket replaced. Shortly after that the engine light came on and we determined that a P2540 fuel low pressure sensor - range/performance error had occured and I needed to have the sensor replace. Before I did this, the EPC light started intermittently coming on and couldn't notice any particular pattern as to when and no performace changes - nothing obvious anyway. My mechanic suggested that the engine light (P2440 pressure problem) was related and it would stop once we changed the sensor. Well, the engine light doesn't come on anymore, but about 5 minutes after driving away from the mechanic the EPC light came back on. I know that it could mean many things, but I'm just trying to get as much information as I can before I go back to my mechanic (or to an authorized dealer).
Any thoughts out there on this one?

Problem : Control system for exhaust warning light. Glow plug system warning light starts blinking after awhile.
Solution: Exhaust and Throttle sensors replaced under warranty

Credit to MBS of Darlington for sorting it straight away as I didn't get there until 16:15. It was the exhaust pressure sensor. Changed under used car warranty (4 years/44K) - common enough according to service manager & borne out here!
He tells me the DPF was unaffected but I'll be busy researching the link between the 2 now I've seen the price mentioned above!

I used the U281 Scanner from Ebay, ->DTC->Engine -> Scan and got these codes:
I think 01137 could related to the DPF/Exhaust sensor, which needs to replace, but don't have a clue about the others and have tried searching on the net for them but no luck.
