Hi,

I changed my front pads and was looking for the function to bleed the ABS module in VAG-COM. When I was in there, I accidentally did something to lose the soft coding on the module. It threw all sorts of codes and I figured out how to recode it back to what it was (05397). It's recoded, but the ABS and ESP light is still on with no fault codes. Do I just need to drive it off or am I missing something? I'm surprised the lights are on with no fault codes anywhere.

Thanks in advance!

ps - on my Jetta there is a function to bleed the ABS module and I can't find it in any of the groups for the W8's ABS module. I'm concerned because when I changed the front pads, I had to remove the bleeder valve to access the bolt that holds the unit together. I lost a fair amount of brake fluid and think there is a little air in the module now.

The lights went out after a little driving. Does anyone know the login code for bleeding the ABS? I keep getting group not available, which I think means I need to login to do it. TIA
