    Vagcom on Ebay ?

    Hey guys,

    If you have a laptop get VAG-COM, it's much better than a code reader. You can modify things and create logs with VAG-COM which a simple code reader can't.

    As Aar0n says get the vag-com lead, its more expensive, but you can do so much more with it. Nigel on here (NHN) can supply you, pm
    him for price.

    Right, so I bought one of these fault finders and it seems to have worked a treat however simple. it found 5 faults however some of these I don't think have been reset. One of them was:
    17978/P1570/005488 - Engine Start Blocked by Immobilizer

    However the car starts totally fine.

    A question I have is if I reset all the fault codes when there is a fault present, will it show up again when I restart the car ?
