Customer Question
I have a steady...

I have a steady CAT indication on my Passat 3.2 V6 FSR. The OBD gives unknown codes 17106 and 04633 on A/T but none on ENGINE. What gives - can you help, I'd be most grateful.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

The exact codes are 017106 and 04633 neither of which are present in the reader list.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Passat?

2007 B6

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Passat yourself? What have you tried so far?

Diagnostic only I would never erase the code if it could lead to damage.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.
