    Have you plugged it back in mate? If so just try disconnecting the battery for 20mins to reset the ECU, Im not 100% that it will clear the fault code but your light should go out, I had to do it at the weekend when i unplugged MAF. Worked for me :D.

    Mate - I met you at that RR up by Merry Hill last year.

    I don't live to far from J2 of the M5. I'll have a look for the laptop with VAGCOM tonight and if I can find it you can pop over?

    Hi jetset mate, hows it going?

    Hows the motor?

    Mines going now mate hence the resetting, time to look at property i'm afraid and some things you have to sacrifice :lol:

    let me know if you fine it out, probably be couple week yet though.

    P-torque, thanks mate I'll keep you in mind if any problems.

    Much appreciated guys

    Got the same fault with my mk2 Ibiza, but this was due to me turning the ignition without the airbag plugged in, now its permanently on.

    After PM's with Scotty_b, he advised me that after an ecu reset (battery disconnected for 20mins), after 50 restarts, if the fault doesn't reoccur, it will clear itself.

    I'm yet to try it, but not going to do 50 restarts in one go! Got my MOT on Saturday, will just remove the bulb for the time being.

    Anyone tried and tested this method? I'll be delighted if it works, as I don't want to shell out £35 to a Stealer, or a tenner to local mech.

    best to find someone with vag-com in your area - bound to be someone close-by.
