Audi A3 8p emission control light, Surrey - VAG-com help?
Its my first time on the site and hope you can help.
Had my 2004 2.0Tdi 140 (engine BKD) for two weeks now and the emission control light has come on. I have read the manual and had a check through a number of informative posts on the subject.
I understand I need to get a fault code read and the local stealer will charge standard labour rate if I take it to them. So I was wondering if there's anyone who would be kind enough to put their software to the test and help me out.
Could it be something to do with a remap the car has had? Read a few threads which seem to indicate a link between the two..
I also wanted to know whether it is safe to drive the vehicle, as my partner needs it to get to work. I was 45miles from home when the light came on earlier today, but eased down the motorway. It hasn't started to flash yet.
Really need to get it sorted ASAP, but would be great to avoid having to be ripped off by the dealer.
