    Airbag Controller

    Thanks for confirming I F---ed it up. After reading the link it appears I did "awaken the bug" which seems to lay dormant in the 6Q0-909-605A modules. My next step is to determine if I can code a new-used 1C0- module with the Vag-lite software, that is the BIG question. If not, I am more...

    Injector Timing
