Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 97 volkswagen Jetta GLX that is idleing extreemly low, how do I reset it to idle properly? I know there is a code that will reset something.....I have done it before but lost the code.
There is no code......unless you're using a vag-com?
have you disconnected the battery recently? or anything of the sort. if so, you may need to align your throttle body. anyhow, disconnect the battery for 10 minutes or more. it takes at least 10 minutes for the ecu to reset, so the longer the better. now, reconnect the battery, as quickly as possible, get in and turn the key to the battery. youll hear a buzzing of sorts from the engine bay if its working. leave the key on battery for 3 minutes. the buzzing will have stopped, before 3 minutes, but after the 3 minutes, start the car. now, let it sit at idle for 3 minutes, dont touch the gas. just let it sit. after 3 minutes at idle, go for a drive and you should be all set. hope that helps.
