Clean your maf the p1182 codes maf. 1281 says thermostat so might have bad one does it take a while for car to warm up? Your 33 is supercharger bypass valve I believe.

P0033, the description of the code and how it works is vague, so I'd start with a new boost bypass solenoid.

P0128, there was a TSB that called for a reflash to eliminate false P0128s, however, the one time I encountered P0128 on a redline was a failed thermostat. I have encountered MANY P0128s on VWs and always fixed them with new thermostat and new ECT sensor.

P1182, clean/replace your air filter, clean your MAF, clean your Throttle Body.

MAF is Mass Air Flow Sensor.

a check engine light could go out by itself if the conditions that caused it to illuminate in the first place have not repeated in a certain number of consecutive retests. the code will remain in memory for a while after the light goes off to help technicians diagnose if the customer can't bring their car in before the light goes out.

if the light is flashing at you, well you should shut off the car and have it towed somewhere.

if you have less than 80k on the clock, the reflash for P0128 should be free.

also, the cleaning/replacing of your air filter and t/b and maf should be cheap and considered normal maintenance anyway.

so, the only thing that might be considered "broken" would be the cause of P0033. you can address the "free" stuff first and clear the codes and see if P0033 returns.
