    You need to check what the problem is with the TPMS, then reset and clear the faults - all using VCDS (VAG-COM).

    Which is why I said you have to use VCDS (VAG-COM) and the dealer said it had to be done with VAS!!!

    VCDS is a near equivalent to VAS that owners can purchase.
  6. Isn't the TPMS pressure change and winter wheels change done via the Highline computer and DIS - ie, using the rocker buttons on the end of the right steering wheel stalk (or the right buttons on the wheel if you have MFSW)?

    Certainly on the RS4 the TPMS menu option on the DIS has two choices - one for storing new tyre pressures, and one for wheel changes.

    I would have hoped that fil2006 would have found those menu options?
