    I had to put the oem head unit back into our 98 passat, and of course the dealership gave me the wrong code the first time around, so I tried it twice and it's locked.

    Well I did a search and was not really satisfied on how many starts it will take to reset the "check engine light". Last night my light came on I drove home.
