Out of curiosity, as I've noticed some unexpected things happening, does anyone else here own a MkIV Volkswagen and use a scangauge?
First, I have a bad driver's side door lock module (dreaded microswitches), so getting the alarm to arm/disarm etc. is hit or miss. BUT, when the alarm does indeed disarm - my SG turns on. OR, if the alarm didn't disarm - but the comfort control module lets me use the power locks - the SG turns on.
At all times, the key isn't anywhere near the ignition. Does this happen to you?
As a related question.... If I turn off my engine, how long do I have until the "current" trip meter resets? At red lights and such - I've been killing the engine (there's some long red lights here). And when I restart and the SG reboots, my "current" trip stats are right where I left them. I just couldn't find anything in the manual so I'm sneaking it in here
Time is the best teacher. Unfortunately it kills all its students.
