VAG-COM help needed, I'm in Cheshire area. The ESP light is coming on now permanently and also on odd occasions the glow plug symbol will flash then go out. Appreciate any help with VAG -COM to possibily diagnose the problem. Could be a couple of bevvies in it for any help if thats any incentive. :cheers:

can ODB11 see a log of error codes, even if my check engine light dissapears? hope we can arrange this cause i dont wanna pay £20 just for the scan from this dude on ebay
I can see and clear errors for each module - it should show errors as long as they've not been cleared manually

oh because in that case i think it would be worth buying my own error code reader. i thought they could only see an error if the check engine light was on. are those sub £50 ones on amazon sufficient for what i want to do?
