    Any one with VAGCOM near Selby

    Has any one got VAGCOM in the Selby area that would be able to help?

    On the way hpme tonight just noticed the EML on. Car runs fine no probs. All i can think is that it could be caused due to the prat who went into the back of me last week. Although the light would have come on sooner i would have thought.

    Thanks

    Andy

    You could try Colin Hickes, could be ideal as he is a mobile VW/Audi technician based near York - mobile number 07828 675352. The guy in Knaresborough who did my detailing had a VW himself and recommended Colin when I had a similar problem with the EML.

    I ended up visiting Autologic, the Audi / BMW independent guys in Harrogate, instead (01423 525335) and they read & reset my fault code while I was there for free and then sorted out the problem very reasonably, you'd have to go to them though.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for that will give him a go. I've managed to reset the EML by removing the battery, but this i think will only be a temporary soloution.

    Cheers

    I live in Hull (for work reasons) but my parents live near selby so would be interested in finding someone local.

    Cheers

    I have now spoken to my insurance company who are putting it on with my original claim so the repairers will look at reading the errors. However i will still contact the above chap as it may prove benefical at a later date. So i'll let you know.

    Cheers

    Sounds like a plan.

    Hello,

    Sorry for the late reply. I've ended up contacting this co http://http://www.ivcleeds.co.uk/index.htm They are going to charge 25 +VAT for the diagnoses slightly more than Colin Hickes (who gave a good price and was very pleasent to deal with) IVC will also deal with any work needing doing under warranty.

    Cheers,

    Andy

    Andy - I think Kofidee has Vag and can do it, if Ginna's wont work.

    On a side not Ginna, would you fancy a meet sometime up in the Hull region? Perhaps at The Beech Tree

    Cheers

    Thanks for that mate. Mines the B6 1.8T so not sure it'll work. I shall double check though.

    Thanks,

    Andrew
