    Washer Jet warning sound can you stop it?

    My car is forever using all its washer jet fluid, and when it does it decides to remind me every 5 minutes which becomes really annoying. Can you stop it once it has bleeped once??????? or do i have to put up with it till i find a garage. I've never known a car use so much water, i know it cleans the headlights too but that is only with the headlights on...

    Might have a leak where a hose could be split/coming off or something.

    Had no probs with mine in terms of levels and I use them a reasonable amount.

    Top up every 3 weeks or so.

    If you turn the DIS display off, does it still warn you?

    I'm sure it does because the warnings over-ride the DIS when it is turned off. The top part of the display will just show ie the warning and nothing else like temp, fuel range,mpg etc

    Re: Washer Jet warning sound can you stop it?

    Yes you can - you need a VAG-COM though....

    [Select]
    [17 - Instruments]
    [Recode - 07]
    Write down the existing coding for future reference.
    Enter 5-digit code from below
    [Do It!]

    Look at the first two digits in the coding. Add the values for the options together to get the correct coding.

    00 - No available equipment
    +01 - Brakepad wear sensor warning active
    +02 - Seatbelt warning active
    +04 - Washer fluid level warning active

    Look at the third digit in the coding (Market version):

    1 - "EU" 24 hour clock (may result in odometer in km in 2002+ clusters)
    2 - "USA" 12 hour clock
    3 - "Canada" 12 hour clock (may result in odometer in km in 2002+ clusters)
    "The third digit in the code is the country code. The codes are:
    4 - "UK" 24 hour clock (should result in odometer in miles)
    5 - Japan
    6 - Saudi Arabia
    7 - Australia

    Look at the fourth digit in the coding (Cylinders):

    3 - No Service Interval (2002+ models)
    4 - 4-cylinder (1999-2001 models)
    6 - 6-cylinder (1999-2001 models)

    Look at the fifth digit in the coding (Distance impulse multiplier):

    2 - 3538
    4 - 3648 (some 2002+ models)

    So, if you want to have Seatbelt warning and washer fluid warning only in a 2001 Canadian 6-cylinder vehicle, (add 00+02+04 = 06),3,6,2 = 06362.
