Double Dark Side! Diesel & 8P
Different "workshop" codes on 2 8L S3s?
Ok, tonight myself and another ASN memeber noticed a difference in the instrument panel on each others cars. Mine would display the engine management light when turning the ignition and it wouldn't go out until I started the engine.
On his car his EML doesn't come on at all when turning the ignition! We imediately thought that a past owner must have removed the bulb, possibly to hide a previous fault, so we ran a cluster test with VCDS. The test went through all the lights in the cluster and there it was the EML!
We were slightly confused so decided to take a look at the coding, this is what mine read:
My "workshop code" is 00185, his was 00045.
Now I'm assuming that this code is maybe specific to the dealer that the car was originally registered at but can anyone explain why these codes are different and whether these codes provide different features.
