What version of VAG-COM are you using (what does the writing say on the top of the screen when you start the program)?

I don't have it handy...it's getting pretty long in the tooth though. Probably about 3 years? But his is an 1998 Tdi...so the code itself shouldn't be anything new right?

15356 is not a valid fault code. Not sure why you're getting that. ECU might be "confused".

Text for 00765 was updated at some point. Currently: "Modulating Piston Movement Sensor (G149)"

could be "confused". This VAG setup has worked flawlessly on a few other vehicles...but for whatever reason, it's never been able to communicate with this vehicle gracefully. Often won't pull up the codes/dies cause of communication errors. Not sure, but I can believe there could be probs/idiosynchrosies w/ this car. I'll do the update per DE_Wolfsburg's suggestion. This laptop may be on it's way out as well. If it's the fault of the ECM, any suggestions for UN-"confusing" it? Huge thanks for the ideas/input.

err 98 Jetta, clean the grounds under the battery tray. Get a good wire brush and sodium bi-carbonate. Jumper the two studs together with a good heavy gauge cable.

Agreed - a friend's 97 Jetta needed grounds cleaned up before my VAG-COM would even acknowledge the car had an ECU :)

A few other gremlins went into hiding afterward too...
