OBD CODE P1151

2001 Volkswagen GTI

Computer problem
2001 Volkswagen GTI 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 140000 miles

my check engine randomly came on one day so I drove home and plugged in my OBD reader and it shot back out a P1151 code that is not in the manual or on the software that came with the reader. Have you come across this code and know what it is?
