Customer Question

I have a 2006 VW Golf SDI 2 ltr car. Twice now it has stopped dead in the road. I have taken it to mechanics who have replaced the filter and a cam shaft sensor (sorry, I’m not sure if this is the proper name!). Coming home one night 2 dashboard lights came on. An amber steering wheel and a car with skids. There is also a red spanner flashing for a while now.

  1. Ok the lights , one is for the steering module and the other is for the reaction control / ABS.
  2. The red Wrench is the reminder for normal service (oil change).
  3. You will need VAG/COM scan tool to scan 03 module and 44 module for faults .
  4. There should be some history code of what what going on . Right now it could be alot of things and need to narrow it down to a couple .

This needs to be done before any further progress.

if you have any questions just shoot a reply

thanks
