I just went to Stevens Creek VW to have may CEL re-diagnosed and I got the "aftermarket stereo" line of BS! I even showed them an invoice showing that another dealership hooked up their 1551 and was able to diagnose the CEL no problem! So anyone who has gone to a dealership's service dept. and has a aftermarket stereo and didn't get hassled PLEASE LET ME KNOW!

Re: HELP! I need a good dealership in or around San Jose CA! (chris1257)

quote:[HR][/HR]It's not B.S. If you have an aftermarket radio, and have not cut the "K-wire", you can fry the dealership's diagnostic tool, which costs them quite a bit of money. If you have cut the K-wire, you'll be ok. Pull the deck out to show them.[HR][/HR]​
anyways...
Anyone want to help?

Look, I'm not denying that it is a problem; in fact I'm sure it is or VW wouldn't send out a tech-bulletin about it, but 1. I've already proven that my particular stereo doesn't cause this 2. You're not helping me with my question, but going off on a tangent. So please just drop it!
This might make me look like a meanie since Chris1257 decided to modify his earlier response, which is as follows…

The following reply was posted by chris1257:

I'm telling the truth dude. You can fry the scanner if the K-wire wasn't cut correctly. I'll try and find the TSB to show you.

Now anyone who wants to be helpful instead of trying to flex their (overly common) knowledge, please do.

[/QUOTE]Last time I checked, this site was to share knowledge that we have.
This is the last time I try to help anyone on this pathetic site... great design, STUPID users.

Look, how can you consider it "help" when your responses have nothing to do with my question? It's people like you that get off topic and turn these threads into pathetic knowledge wars. What’s more is that in this case it was unprovoked. I didn't mention that I already knew about the K-wire because it didn't relate to my question. So, for the second time, drop it!
Moderator: Feel free to kill this thread as it now serves no purpose to me or anyone else.

I don't know what compels me to drag this out any further, but...
My question wasn't "why are these A-holes hassling me about my after-market stereo" it was "can anyone tell me a good place to go that won't hassle me"
Maybe I was a little quick to pounce on you, and for that I am sorry. I'm just tired of everything turning into a knowledge war that doesn't go anywhere and helps nothing. So my initial response to you was an attempt to quell that very thing.
So, sorry, lets just drop it.
