Hello,
I have a 2014 Passat TDI, i had codes for the EGR and DPF so recently changed EGR Valve and had DPF professionally cleaned, after the changes i want to reset the Check Engine Light and the DPF light and Glow Plug blinking light and have no success of resetting it, any input and help why this cannot be done using VAG?
I do not have power on the car and that is why I performed these repair and want to reset the light.
Any input why these cannot be reset, is till have the power issue, is my car in Lump Mode?

take off both battery cables and zip tie them touching together for 30 minutes it should clear all codes and reset.

Forum Rules and Guidelines

As I've already posted.

This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes which they refuse to install. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

Car spec now shows not for all members.

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

You don't need to do that for 30 minutes just a few seconds to discharge any capacitors in the system, that is an old trick that doesn't always work.
