Well its shown that code for a reason, what scanner is he using?

VAG Error Code: 16497

EOBD II Error Code: P0113

Fault Location:
Intake Air Temperature (IAT) Sensor (G42) - Signal too High

Possible Cause:
Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active.

Wiring/Connector(s) from/to Intake Air Temperature Sensor (G42) faulty.
Intake Air Temperature (IAT) Sensor (G42).

Possible Solutions:
Check/Replace Fuse(s).
Check Wiring/Connector(s) from/to Intake Air Temperature Sensor (G42).
Check Measuring Value Blocks (MVB).
Check/Replace Intake Air Temperature Sensor (G42).

When is the code detected?:
An excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to Engine Control Module (ECM).

The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor is built into mass air flow sensor or in some vehicles mounted to the air filter duct housing. The sensor detects intake air temperature and transmits a signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The temperature sensing unit uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. Electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases in response to the temperature rise. The Intake Air Temperature signal is used as an input for various systems in the vehicle.
