Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
Left VW back in 1999, back then you were able to remove the instrument cluster and replace the bulb. Not a common bulb, should be able to get it from VW.

They are perfectly correct in what they say ----- but iam a back street cowbow and proud of being able to bodge things to save money and this light is just a LED so i would look into the possibility of soldering a new LED into the circuit ,the dealer will not do this as any dealer is their to make a profit and a simple plausable repair like this doesnt earn them money ,Only unit changing like you have been quoted does ,cant make out why this is a failure as its not even checked here in europe but a probe inserted into exhaust to measure gases,In fact i would defy any emmisions test station in america to even try to connect to a europeon vehicle after 2005 ,its all enccrypted software dealer only via the internet with the factory .Please print this reply off and show them as it would interest me greatly to know their answer and if i had the money i would bring a new renault over and see what they can do with it because i do think their probing of the OBDII woiuld activate the immobilisor as illegal access .Be very interested to hear their remarks as a fly on the wall when they plug in and it goes off
