I added a drop in filter from afe and replaced my oil cooler gasket and ofhg. Ever since I've gotten those codes. But they clear. The dc to dc doesn't want to clear though.

Here the fault description from ISTA:

Fault description
Diagnosis monitors the DC/DC converter (support for voltage supply of head unit during engine start for vehicles with automatic Start-Stop function) and the signal line between the front electronics module (FEM) and DC/DC converter.

The fault is identified when there is an open circuit, short to B+ or B- on the signal line or when the DC/DC converter signals a fault.

Condition for fault identification
Supply voltage greater than 8.5 V

Terminal 30B on


Condition for fault memory entry
The fault code is entered whenever it exists for 100 ms.

Action in service
Check line and plug connections between FEM and DC/DC converter for short-circuit and open circuit.

If the wiring and the plug connections are OK, replace the DC/DC converter.

Fault effect and breakdown warning
Possible malfunction of head unit (audio, video, navigation) while starting engine (MSA).


Driver information ------------
Service instruction -------------


If there are no problems, i would not take the error seriously or read the error memory with another program.

Thank you for the detailed description. Under the action in service. Do you know anything about where those parts are. I haven't ever heard of the FEM or a dc/dc converter before.

Here the description of the DC/DC Converter and the location.

Here the wiring diagram (A173=FEM, N5=DC/DC converter).

Here an instruction how to get to the FEM.

Nvm. I got it to delete the code once I turned my ac off and turned the engine off. Once I started it back up. It magically disappeared.
