    Thread: 2012 “fixed” TDI problem (noob, sorry)

      Hello all. Happy(ish) new owner of a 2012 JSW TDI with the emissions fix. Just threw a CEL tonight during normal around town driving. Car is running great. No odd sounds or anything.

      What I’m wondering is this. Could my driving habits have caused this light? I only drive about 10-20 miles a day. This would cause it to never prompt a regen from what I’ve read. Would this be enough to start throwing codes?

      I know I’m asking before having any codes pulled so It’s kind of a shot in the dark but it’s the weekend and it’s going to eat at me until next week.

      Need to get the codes pulled. If its emissions related, take it to VW.

      Also, if you are concerned about not getting into regen, I would just make sure you drive it a little more to get it up to temp and into regen territory.
