Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I have spent over $3000 trying to get this dang light off.
There is nothing wrong with my engine, I am confident of it. But the light will not go away.
2 years ago was the last time I wasted money to try and get it resolved becuase I have to get it smog tested for registration. The only reason it passed was because I paid someone to reset it.
Now I have to do it again. If I take it to a smog place and they see the light they send me away.....Can I just pull a fuse and kill the light???????
Please help me
You need to take it to a mechanic (avoid any vw specialists they will charge lots) if you can find a good honest mechanic he will be able to plug an onboard diagnostics tool into your car & override the check engine light it would take a couple of minutes & he shouldnt really charge you anything more than the cost of an hours labour, about $50nzd which you can probably halve if your using real currency(im in new zealand & monopoly money carries more value than the new zealand dollar)! But I suggest if its been 2 years since you last had someone look at it, that you get it serviced you will probably find that the mileage has just gone over 100000km or maybe 150000-200000km which will automatically switch the check engine light on! Hope this is helpful to you, & I'd shop around if any of them say anything like $3000 again!! Good luck
