thanks Jay. I did the 'reset/calibration' operation on vagcom last night didn't help much. however i pullled my head out of my ass and realized if the mechatronics unit was out then there would have been some codes no? lol.

I just hit a MAJOR roadblock though!!

Went to register the car yesterday. The title says REBUILT, and per the illinois state police last week if the title says REBUILT i should have no problem registering the car.

But when i went to the currency exhange yesterday they flagged my car as a SALVAGE title! And now, unless an actual DMV would just let me slide through, i need to wait atleast 8 weeks to go through a state inspection and pay out the ass to get this thing 'legal' even though it drives perfectly fine!
