    Removing the suspension error light and CEL after swapping to coils without recoding

    This allows for the headlight autoleveling to continue to work as it did before pulling the harness to the suspension module.

    I was talking with a buddy about his writeup on how to recode the allroad after going to coilovers. I was told that to get the login code I needed, I would need VAG commander and a different cable from the Ross Tech one I own. Since I didn't feel like getting another cable, I decided to use a trick I learned from a follower of mine on Instagram.

    That pesky orange light....



    I pulled the side panel after removing a few screws and back sill plate. This allowed for easier access to pull the harness from the suspension control module.



    After removing the harness from the clip, I proceeded to find wires 17 and 49



    I clipped them and tied them together. I taped things up so no shorts will happen and started the vehicle up



    No suspension light and no CEL, either. Yay!



    Although there is a code thrown when I check via VCDS, this does not cause the CEL to illuminate on the dash. The other drawback I learned is that ESP will re-engage above 40 MPH or something like that, if it was disabled. Still no fix to this as far as he knew.

    Thank you for this; just did it, with a paper clip of all things. Taped it up to protect the connection, wanted to make sure it would work before soldering... You saved me several hours of tracing wiring schematics, I appreciate it.
