The ECCS_DIAGRAM.PDF circuit diagram www.mummachummas.co.uk/gtir/ECCS_DIAGRAM.PDF showed that the temp and det sensor leads apparently went through a shared connector F7/E222 somewhere (or F11/E215). On the diagram http://www.gtirworkshopmanual.com/default.aspx?v=2387 the F7 connector can be found on the harness. I never did find E222!
The F7 connector lurks somewhere near the bottom front nearside end of the engine, and is hidden under the loom (see picture). It was disconnected...
It is now plugged in and my GTI-R is no longer in limp mode! Mind you, even in limp mode it was the equal of my Golf Plus TSi, which was not too shabby.
