Billymade, I am done working on this thing for now. I have put too many things on hold that need attention. I will connect the VCDS one more time to clear whatever codes are there and then will turn it over to my granddaughter. After she has driven it for a couple of weeks I will do the scan and post it.

As for VCDS I do not believe that I would have gotten to the bottom of this issue without it. Even though it was not throwing any ABS codes the imbalance in the wheel sensors pointed me in the right direction. It does have a heavy learning curve. My prayer is that I don't need to learn much more, however as long as she is driving something with Voodoo electronics I suspect that the VCDS will be a part of my life for as long as she has it.

Apparently VCDS is an evolving program. When I changed the ABS pump for whatever reason I needed to reset the steering angle sensor (voodoo). The instructions from Ross-Tech were not quite accurate and I had to hunt around to find different things. Also it seems that some of the steps were eliminated but it did eventually program. I am guessing that it is the result of the evolution.

Zwiller, With regard to the air bag tool, Is your airbag light on as a result of an air bag deployment? If so it will be interesting to see if it clears it. What research I have done on the air bag light, as one person put it the controller is like having a cocked pistol. When the trigger is pulled and the hammer falls you can't successfully re-**** the hammer. My air bag light is the result of a deployment due to a hit on the left quarter.

As for the can't, my years of experience is there is almost always a road around the can't somewhere.

Here is the scan after cancelling all codes that would cancel. As stated after my granddaughter has driven it for a couple of weeks I will run another scan and see what might pop up.

Thanks for the feedback. I did see all of those and am not in the mood to trace wiring. The 771, somehow the float arm got torn off the fuel pump, I have a new one coming and then I need to figure out how to disconnect all the in tank lines. Maybe when I see the new pump/sender assy. it will make some sense.

I really do need to tend to other things, probably number one is my driver. It is a '63 Pontiac Catalina convertible with an L83 and 6L80 trans out of a 15 Silverado. It desperately needs brakes, I will be fabricating brakes for it using Wilwood components. It is more than willing to go a lot faster than I need to, stopping however not so much.

Swore I posted... Anyway happy to see the new scan cleared a lot. No deployment for the air bags. I think low voltage triggered it. I read a tons of info about the bags and am lead to believe the tool will actually clear the code even if deployed. Alternately, you can remove the module and mail it to a shop to be cleared. I am a little nervous messing with the system and will NOT be in the car when I try the tool and will try it with battery disconnected as well but doubt it will work. I seem to recall the 654 code you have due to faulty seat belt part.

Yes it has to do with the left seat belt retractor. The car did take a hit on the right quarter panel that deployed the seat air bag. It probably also did something to the seat belt that needs to be repaired. There are several shops on the internet that do that kind of work but I am looking on ebay to see if I can find a good used one, that way I don't need to lay up the car while the seat belt is sent in for repair. Also I have seen several negative posts that these repairs are often less than great. I have found a lot of black ones just need a beige.

So the tool arrived last night and decided to give it a quick try. Worked exactly like it was supposed to on first try and light gone! knocks wood Yellow button clears error codes and red button clears crash codes. I used yellow. Hopefully the lights stay off for some time and I can focus on engine readiness. Something hinky going on but no DTCs. I can smell fuel and hp is weak. I might be expecting too much but this bug is NOTHING like my 2003 passat turbo in performance. 2nd gear on that car was wicked. I don't think the bug turbo is even working.

What airbag scan tool; did you buy? As to the 1.8T being underpowered, there is a wide range of problems, that can kill boost, you might start a new thread in the 1.8T engine area. We can troubleshoot and discuss problems there.

Wouldn't be the first frozen turbo I have seen, but that would not account for the fuel smell. Fuel smell can quickly turn into barbequed bug.

Link for the tool is in post 6. My bug is 2.0T. Fuel smell is mild but noticeable. I have intermittent DTC pointing to upstream O2 sensor. I will start a thread in 2.0T. Sorry for the cross talk grumpy and best of luck on your Pontiac. I am 67 Lemans/GTO guy at heart. Someday...

VAG Airbag Light System Reset Crash Data Fault Memory Erase Tool For VW / AUDI

Its good hear this thing works well; definitely cheaper, then shipping it out for recoding, by a specialist.
