1997 VW Golf 2.0L Check Engine Light - Help!
What a disaster....
I just bought this VW for my teenage son's first car and we wanted to do spark plug replacement at home. The previous owner said he never replaced them! While doing it I managed to damange (internal break) one of the spark plug wires. When the engine was started w/o knowing that, the CHECK ENGINE light was "flashing" because it was running only on 3 cylinders. Installed a brand new set of spark plug wires ($100+!) and the engine ran great. But the CHECK ENGINE light is "steady on" now instead of flashing. I disconnected battery cables, but the light won't turn off. Then, the anti-theft radio would not work - it displays "SAFE" on the display. The radio is not much of concern right now. But the CHECK ENGINE light being ON is. Can someone tell me how to shut if off?
Thanks in advance.
