    Hi Had my engine management light come on last night. Gave it a scan with a mates vag com and it came back with two error codes.

    18530
    04803

    Anyone know what this could be ? Car seems to be driving normal.

    thanks

    Are you sure your mate was using the official VCDS (previously vagcom) ?

    Neither of those fault codes are listed in the Ross-Tech website fault code pages.

    Here is the link to the fault code pages :- Category:Fault Codes - Ross-Tech Wiki

    No it wasn't the official one.

    I took it too Audi today to get it's MOT done. They diagnosed the car to have 2 problems.
    Which will cost the following to get sorted:
    Bank1 Lamda Probe £221.03
    Solenoid valve and charcoal canister £262.12
    Not too sure what to do as I would like to change the car soon and £500ish is alot to spend on a car that I want to change.

    See if you can find a specialist independent VAG garage near to you. They'll probably do the job for half the price !

    Worth a try anyway 'cos dealerships are a complete rip-off labour wise.
