Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.
What are the exact codes that keep coming back?
were either of them 65535?
No no death code fortunately. It was a crash data stored and passenger side seat on/off sensor
One second...phone call
ok, so if I remember correctly, crash data faults can't be erased by vag com
however, at the same time, I'm not sure that will turn on the light
and right now, you can't even connect with address 15 at all?
try unplugging the radio
yep, should have started there

when I go to erase it gives me -unexpected gmsg=OA after erase codes request
I think we ran into this before
Ah, got it. Ok so the crash data needs to get erased by a company who does a lot of these things. I think BBA-Reman does this, but not positive
The seat sensor....that part is tougher. It's very possible that it needs a seat pad
but with it being an intermittent code, that's not lighting up the airbag light right now
yeah it wont let me erase it just goes to that error message
yeah, from what I recall, crash data can't be erased by vag-com
yeah but it should let me try or it just comes back but that message comes up first so doesnt let me
agreed, but I remember the last time I ran into this, I was getting some sort of similar funky error when trying to clear codes
but at least you got the soft-code, if you decide to go with a used controller
does recoding help?
Looks like a new module, thanks
glad to help as always
