      did you happen to try this. I noticed the issue this morning when I tried to lift my blades at work. Of course, came back to read here. I will have to try at lunch.

      Really stupid question - what does MFD mean?

      My Jetta is the first car I've owned that had a gas cap tether. I've almost snapped it off a few times because I'm not used to it being there. It'll probably get clipped soon.

      Thanks! I knew that it had to be something really, really basic.

      Wow, I can't remember the last car that I had that didn't have a gas cap teather. Maybe the '82 Civic that I owned.

      Any way to disable the temperature warning? It is so irritating to hear it beep just because it went from 40 degrees to 39. It wouldn't be so bad if it would return to the desired display info I had it on once it is done chiming. I have been meaning to check my manual but always forget once I get home from work. Probably a vcds change huh?

      What's the reason for the gas cap tether? Is that part supposed
      to be anchored into the car, and it's just popping out
      and sticking to gas cap? Do I need to go to
      the dealer?

      Fog lights - How do I turn them on?

      My switch has 3 positions, on, off and Lights with squiggly lines on it - I think it is the fogs. But my switch will only go in two positions. On & off, it will not budge into the fog position....

      Pull the knob towards you. It never actually turns to those squiggly lines but that is how the fogs are activated

      The fogs can only be turned on with the headlights on, so as azthegame said, you have to pull the switch out with the headlights on. The foglight "position" will then light up to let you know the fogs are on.

      That was the first question where I was hoping someone would have let him sweat it out a little just for kicks. It's just like when I couldn't figure out how to close the sunroof from the tilt position. I tried everything from twisting and turning and pushing but nothing would do it. I wanted someone to slap me when I was told you have to pull it in the opposite direction of how you push it. Was so bad on my part it was funny.

      Same here. I'm glad someone beat me to it.

      Also kind of surprised he didn't break his switch.

      I lost one of my key fobs the other day? What is the process I should go through? I am unsure of where it is and am afraid someone may find it and be able to access my car.

      A. Is there a way to disable the key fob from the dealership by telling them the serial number?
      B. Do I need to get a new set of keys with a different frequency?
      C. Something else?

      Thanks

      Dealer can de-program all the keys to the car and then reprogram your other key and any new ones you get cut.

      be prepared to pay big money for a new key i think theyre like 200 bucks or more and then the dealer will most likely charge you to program it

      Works just the same. Push the button quickly once, just to get everything to turn on without starting the engine. Then tap the wipers like in the non KESSY

      Can we change the instrument colors from white to blue? Some one told me you can change the bulbs out and I'm wondering if that's the case!

      Did your car not come with an owner's manual?

      Is there a way to buy a remote for cheap off the internet then have the dealer cut it and program it?
