Purchase VCDS from Ross-Tech. Don't skimp. Get the REAL deal, not some "dongle" sold on eBay. After 2-3 uses, it will pay for itself. Dealer visits for diagnostics will add up fast!! The modules will sometimes store fault codes even without the CEL lit. But sometimes general OBDII codes wILL self-clear. The service writer is covering his or her butt. They don't want you coming in and getting mad at a $120 diagnostic fee when there were no faults stored.
