The only way to know if I have thrown a code is if the CEL light has come on. So if the CEL light is not on then there is no error codes?

No, there may still be error codes stored in the ECU.

Run a VAG. No CEL's does not mean there aren't codes thrown.

The CEL only comes on when there are mutilple times when the same code is thrown or when a major code is thrown. You could have 20 different codes thrown and still no CEL.
