Hi all,

We just replaced the coolant temp sensor and now we don't know how to clear the Check Engine/Multi-function Indicator light. The local auto parts stores refuse to do it, saying it's now "against the law" for them to do so. On my Nissan, there's a series of steps with ignition and accelerator and you can reset your code that way, but not the VW apparently.

So - is anyone in the area that can clear the code for us? We can pay you for your trouble! (Not much, we're both college geeks, so..."

Thanks,
Jack

Hi from Raleigh. (same grumble about the autozones not resetting codes, it's not against the law they want to sell code readers)

I have a Actron $30 code reader that Autozone sells that'll do the trick for you.

The other alternative is to disconnect the battery for 5 minutes.

I work in RTP M-F till 4pm and have class at Durham tech at 6 M/W and would be more than happy to reset your CEL with my code reader.

PM me if you want to meet.

Chris
