hi all i bought the autel maxscan vag405 scanner,now i plugged it into my car,a4 2001, and the following codes/messages came up

in the engine section:

1) Powertrain Data bus - missing msg from ABS controller P1649

2) Powertrain Data bus - steering angle sensor P1628

3) Powertrain Data bus - steering wheel electronics P1699

in the cent elect section

4) Control modual for multi function steering wheel (J453)

in the instrument section

5) Fuel level sensor (G) sporadic - open circuit

6) Fuel supply sensor 2 (G169) sporadic - open circuit

7) Abs control modual - sporadic - no communication

8) Control modual for steering column electronics (J527) - sporadic - no communication

in the cent conv section

9) control modual in instrument cluster - sporadic

and finally in the radio section

10) front left speaker -sporadic - open circuit

11) front right speaker -sporadic - open circuit

12) connection radio ZF output to antenna amp - sporadic - open circuit

does anyone no what would cause these faults or where i should start for identifying/correcting these faults

the fact that multi function steering wheel came up should i have buttons on the wheel?all i have is the buttons to change gear,it a auto

any thoughts would be apprecited
