The emissions indicator light is constantly on in my 2006 Beetle but it appears to be running correctly. I've tried disconnecting the positive battery cable, but it still is on.

Asked by Feb 01, 2014 at 10:29 AM about the 2006 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've gotten a bid of $1,500.00 to fix this, but I can't believe it really is an emissions
problem.  Is there any way to re-set this?

You'll need to have the computer scanned. Advance and Autozone auto parts stores will do it for free. Post the trouble code(s) here and we can help. Could be as simple as a bad gas cap or faulty oxygen sensor. As far as resetting it. Since it's OBD II it must be done with a scan tool. HTH. -Jim
