    You'll need to get it VAG Com'd or another suitable diagnostics to check. Looking at around £20-30 mark usually to do a full scan. Dont go to Audi like I did the first time, as they charged me £45. Thinking about it, when mine came on the first time I called the RAC out as I didn't know if I could drive it with it on. They tried to do a check but it wouldn't connect with the system. They admitted at the time that the AA has a better system as their's is a fixed terminal in the back, not a bashed up lappy that the RAC had. So that could be a freebie for you if you're a member of one of the major breakdown companies.

    What are the symptoms (if any) now the light has come on?

    Good luck, hopefully nothing too major. Did you buy it from Eshrules? If so dont forget to give him a shout when you have the lead, otherwise you may have probs connection wise.

    Right i've just got my cable and have run an autoscan using vag-com. I am getting the following errors on my car:

    16795 - Secondary Air Injection System: Incorrect Flow Detected

    I'm not very mechanically minded, so what does this mean?

    How do i fix it?

    Can i drive it with the error, until i fix it? Or is it going to cause serious problems?

    Cheers
