The Fuel Pump control module on 2.0t TSI engines is found under the back seat of most VW and Audi models.  The Electric Pump Module is mounted inline and plugs in between the vehicles wire harness and the in tank electrical fuel pump.  These pump modules are fairly common to fail, take a look below to find out more details about how determine if your fuel pump module could be bad.

The fuel pump module serves as a power supply to the electric in-tank low pressure fuel pump and can give you plenty of trouble when it goes bad.

 

Where can I get this OEM Fuel Pump Control Module?

What problems can you expect?

When these pump modules go bad it is usually from overheating.  What you would usually have happen is your 2.0t TSI engine would likely stall and not turn back on until the vehicle sits for some time.  This is even more common during hot days that apply even more heat to the fuel pump module.  You also might have any other fault code related to the fuel system, which can often be codes like low fuel rail pressure.

 

How can I check my fuel pump module? 

Since these Pump Modules getting very hot, its generally pretty simple to tell when they are really bad as they are often extremely hot and may even melt the plastic casing they are housed in.  Please note that while the scenario mentioned above is the most common it may not be immediately obvious that your pump module is scorched.

 

How can I fix it?

Replace the module with a new OEM one.  This part has been revised and you want to make sure you’re getting the most current version of this.  Also another thought I had in regards to this was about aftermarket versions of this part.  Given the fact the OEM fuel pump modules have had overheating issues I would be very concerned when install an aftermarket one.  This is even more true when you consider the fact the pump module is directly above the fuel tank.  If this part were poor quality and caught on fire there are going to be some serious issues.

    Hello,

    I was wondering if it is necessary to always replace the fuel pump itself if the module goes?

    I have a 2012 VW CC. My battery keeps going dead because the in tank fuel pump never shuts off after the car is turned off. Do you think this could be due to a faulty fuel pump module? The car seems to be running fine once it is started.

      Could be. Its possible wherever it gets signal from is the cause. You will have to dig in to figure out but the module would be a logical start.

    Hi,

    First of all thank you for all the very useful info on your page.

    I had the the control module overheating problem on my 1.8 FSI Passat CC. The pump module got so hot the plastic casing melted which ended in blowing a fuse.
    I replaced it by the latest version (1K0 906 093G). VW upgraded the control module because there is a small heat sink on the back of it now,
    After install it still feels gets very hot after driving for a while. So I’m in doubt if something else is causing the module to to overheat but I’ve got no clue if the temperature level is normal or not.

    I measured the temperature of the module at the heat sink after 20 minutes of random driving. Since the module is mounted directly under the backseat there is no room for any kind of ventilation. (faulty design imo)
    With the backseat removed temperature went up to 122°F. With the back seat in place it quickly went up to around 158°F.
    I live in Europe with a moderate climate, 68°F on that day.

    Is this a normal operating temperature for this module? I’m slightly worried my problem isn’t fixed and the module will soon fail again.

    Any info would be very welcome.

    Kind regards,

    Henk , Netherlands.

      We have not tested what normal temperatures are but keep in mind heat sinks are always going to be warm or hot.

    Best regards
