If you had VCDS you could scan the Treg and post it up here. You could also reset the fault and see if it come back.
Without any details on your vehicle year/trim, there's not much anyone can advise you to do.

I've taken it to the dealer. They stated it was ecm relay. Replaced and no resolve. Had a melted fuse on left side. Got rid of that, still popping up the same code. But the car runs and drives fine. Confused
I did forget in my first post to say Hello and welcome to the forums.
Which exact fuse was "melted"?. Post the actual fuse location #. I find fuses blow before they melt unless you had an iffy fuse holder that was arcing with current draw.
My suggestion would be to go to a good indie shop that deals with VW's or bite the bullet and deal with the dealer.
Also get yourself a proper scan tool such as a genuine VCDS. It won't help you right now but it will in the future. It will also help you from getting unhelpful rhetoric from others looking to boost themselves.
Sorry .... not sorry to anyone who feels burned by that last sentence.

Unhelpful like...

(A) not posting any information whatsoever?
(B) not following up?
(C) Getting upset when asked for more information?
(D) Going around in circles?




What does this mean? Others? Boost what? How?
Yes, those that have know what I mean.


OP is like some clients we see at the shop. They drop off the vehicle with an issue. Do not respond to calls, and when finally reached, give elusive answers, blame the shop for a vehicle not running by saying, "It ran when I dropped it off," and deny any wrongdoing.

I might be wrong about OP, but it smells just like it.
This happens a lot on here. It's as if they don't like what they read and bolt.
Maybe the OP will be different.

Wasn't looking for negative comments. Just help. Always tried to do things myself. But electrical issues I have trouble with. I thought I could get some leads here to try. I'm done with this forum.
Sadly you're not alone with this line of thinking. There was a negative tactless force that appeared on this forum this year that is driving a lot of new members away.

Some of you are so grumpy and filled with pity. Plenty of people don’t know where to start so they come to forums for help not to be ridiculed. If you don’t have any useful information or input to provide why say anything at all? You are grown men you learned these things as a kid! Does it make you feel better shaming others? The OP is clearly in a situation where he is somewhat unfamiliar with where to start how can you expect him to provide a thesis on his issues? People wonder why forums are dying it’s because of those of you who gate keep and shame people who don’t know what you know or ask questions you deem stupid. When there’s no one left here to belittle what are you keyboard warriors gonna do? Having an inviting environment pushes the community forward and creates new genuine experts along the way. There’s so much hate in the world no need to add it here. I’ll stop myself here cuz y’all are gonna keep doing the same things regardless. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and a least some sense of compassion.

I agree totally. There are members that have been warned of this behavior but due to their sometimes helpfulness they are allowed to continue with the verbal attacks on new and older members alike. Edits to posts that are offensive in this nature is not stopping these people from chasing away new members who, as you said, are kinda lost as to where to begin and in most cases forget to leave basic information for others to help them correctly. it's still no excuse for others to be allowed to down put and ridicule them/others.
