So less then 5000 miles and the MIL comes on!!! I have no idea what I was doing when it came on but I can tell you it was leaving a bar at about midnight with a couple of ladies and let me tell you I wasnt very happy about getting in my brand new car and seeing that ugly amber light staring back at me..

Anyone else have the computer set a code for somthing??

(sorry Jonesy if this isnt in the right spot)

This is the correct place for such a thread.

Also, don't worry about that too much. I'm not going to get pissed or anything if you use common sense.

Hahaha!!!

As for the light I haven't seen that one. Nor did I come across anything like that while messing around with vagcom. I'd just run it to the dealer have them scan it and report back....sorry but that is the best I got. O

...Now if my dealer was only open on the weekends
What?!?

How do they expect to sell cars when they're not open on the weekends? I can understand the service department being only minimally manned on weekends, but not the dealership. Holy crap.

You had me concerned for a moment. And looking back, that makes sense, but the the time of my posting, I hadn't had my coffee yet. As much as I hate that excuse, it's the truth.

The dealership I worked at had 2 techs (total of 8 of us) in on Saturday and was closed on Sunday. And that was a small dealership. The (huge) Honda shop across the street had 5 or so techs (out of about 20) on Saturday. I can't see a single disadvantage to having a few guys work the weekends for people who may not necessarily be able to make it in during the week.

yeah I rolled over my 5 grand mark this weekend and im trying to schedule an appointment right now to get it changed

also the MIL has not shown itself in quite a few days now which is interesting I dont know when it went out maybe after a large smokey burn out or after I kick the girl out that was sitting in the passenger seat she could have been making my fast very unhappy
