    My car is forever using all its washer jet fluid, and when it does it decides to remind me every 5 minutes which becomes really annoying. Can you stop it once it has bleeped once??????? or do i have to put up with it till i find a garage. I've never known a car use so much water, i know it cleans the headlights too but that is only with the headlights on...

    Might have a leak where a hose could be split/coming off or something.

    Had no probs with mine in terms of levels and I use them a reasonable amount.

    Top up every 3 weeks or so.

    If you turn the DIS display off, does it still warn you?

    I'm sure it does because the warnings over-ride the DIS when it is turned off. The top part of the display will just show ie the warning and nothing else like temp, fuel range,mpg etc

    Yes you can - you need a VAG-COM though....

    [17 - Instruments]
    [Recode - 07]
    Write down the existing coding for future reference.
    Enter 5-digit code from below
    [Do It!]

    Look at the first two digits in the coding. Add the values for the options together to get the correct coding.

    00 - No available equipment
    +01 - Brakepad wear sensor warning active
    +02 - Seatbelt warning active
    +04 - Washer fluid level warning active

    Look at the third digit in the coding (Market version):

    1 - "EU" 24 hour clock (may result in odometer in km in 2002+ clusters)
    2 - "USA" 12 hour clock
    3 - "Canada" 12 hour clock (may result in odometer in km in 2002+ clusters)
    "The third digit in the code is the country code. The codes are:
    4 - "UK" 24 hour clock (should result in odometer in miles)
    5 - Japan
    6 - Saudi Arabia
    7 - Australia

    Look at the fourth digit in the coding (Cylinders):

    3 - No Service Interval (2002+ models)
    4 - 4-cylinder (1999-2001 models)
    6 - 6-cylinder (1999-2001 models)

    Look at the fifth digit in the coding (Distance impulse multiplier):

    2 - 3538
    4 - 3648 (some 2002+ models)

    So, if you want to have Seatbelt warning and washer fluid warning only in a 2001 Canadian 6-cylinder vehicle, (add 00+02+04 = 06),3,6,2 = 06362.
