    EMS (3rd time in 3 weeks)

    EMS light came on about 3 weks ago took it to Audi Lancaster in Manchester, they said some crap about it needed reseting and charged me Ł44.06, 4 days later its back on again, this time they say its the Lambda try to charge me Ł44.06 again and say i have to bring back in 8 days for the repair which will cost me Ł150, after a short discusion he loses the Ł44.
    Anyway the work was carried out 2 days ago and today the EMS light is back on [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    What do you think ?
    I have had the car over 3 years and never had any problems with it until now!!

    How is the car running? Does it seem ok? Perhaps you could get someone with vagcom to take a look?

    yes I have been charge 1/2 hour labour also to reset the light on a few different occassions(faulty MAF/Coil Pack/Throttle Housing...soon adds up to big bucks)
    came to the conclusion that audi dealers are thieving basterds who need castrating

    If u cannot gain access to the vagcom tool from a fellow friendly forum user then you can reset the light yourself by disconnecting the battery for about 1/2 hour but should only do this provided you know the reason for the light coming on in the first place
    I did this a few times myself when i was waiting to replace my faulty MAF and avoided wasting beer money at the stealer

    Just got it back today ! the master technician took a look and found a problem to be a worn lead/ hose or something like that, they are going to take it in again thursday and replace it.
    They also mentioned lookng into giving me a refund for the previous wrongly diagnosed repairs.
