    So, I'm having a weird problem with my 2006 Passat 2.0T. My computer system keeps randomly resetting itself while I'm driving. All of my dashboard lights will come on, the gauges will drop, and everything re-sets (clock, trip meter, and sometimes the fuel gauge is incorrect for a few minutes)...

    Is it as easy as loosening the bolts putting weight on the suspension and that tightening? What happens if you dont reset the UCA's after lowering?

    If your sunroof refuses to close fully when the potentiometer is in the "roof closed" position, this is what you need to do: Take off the sunroof motor cover. Get the sunroof as close to the fully closed position as possible, either by messing with the switch a bit or using the "emergency...

    I am having this problem where I can only go through one next function reading on the MFA and then get stuck there unless I turn off and back on the ignition. Then I can only change one function reading and get stuck again. Also other than the real-time MPG reading, other function readings will...

    Hubby had to craft a couple of tools and devised a couple of techniques for lining up the timing belt but he is just about done. So, the problem is going to be when he finishes putting the engine back together, does the computer need to be reset and if it does how do we go about it? Anybody...

    Every morning lately that I get into my car the MPG average is back to 0 and starts averaging all over again. Any reason for this? If I turn the car off and get back in in a few hours it's fine but overnight it resets. Any ideas?

    oil light came on, was a little low, but after a fill up does it need resetting to get the light to go out? i just disconnected the battery for 15 minutes and it was gone, but is it maybe another problem, or do you have to take the car to the dealer to get the light removed?

    I recently had the check engine light come on on my 2001.5 1.8t. I'm almost positive I found the cause (broken vacuum line came oof at the front of the intake manifold). Anyway, I repaired that but need to clear the light. Do I have to use a scan tool of some sort, or is there another way to...

    I have looked and looked for this answer. The closest I come are post about using the min and hr adj on the clock. My book states that it will show a service reminder at oil change intervals. If I change my own oil, which I prefer to do. How do I reset the light? I have a scan tool that will...

    Is there any way to reset the ecu in a 1.8T (AWM) without disconecting the battery or using a VAG-COM? I though I read a post around here somewhere about an easier way, but I searched for it and can't find it for the life of me.
