    Did you meet all the conditions? Was engine temp up to spec?

    Sometimes the timing is so far out that the cluster of dots is off the chart and you have to rotate the pump to get the cluster to appear.

    To get answers on coding the locks and so on, you really need to post an autoscan so people can see what modules are present in the car and what their coding is set to. Once that is known, someone may be able to look up information on your car and give an answer. Autoscans show more information than just fault information so, please, post that up for us.

    Did you read how to save an autoscan in the VCDS manual? Once you have it saved, copy and paste the details into a post.

    ok ill get it copied but before i do any mods i want to get the pump timing done but its looking like the pump is u/s. tdi graph gives me some strange readings so if i just read group 004 basic settings my timing stays at 5.2 atdc wherever i adjust the pump to, smokes alot too! im guessing that it could be the advance retard meech in the pump? or commencent of inj valve? shame to break the car as i like it but dont want to spend out on a pump really
