I’ve been using this for a couple of years. Very good for reading and clearing codes.
Limited-time deal: ANCEL VD500 Pro OBD2 Reader for Volkswagen VW Audi Skoda Seat Diagnosis Check Engine Light EPB ABS SRS Code Reader Oil Throttle Position Adaption Service Due Reset Tool https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07ZJ3V..._dl_Q8P4ER5VZ289RB2B03S0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I tried the “wired” type and it just didn’t work for me, I had to send it back. I find that the Bluetooth variety gives loads more information. But each to their own and I won’t knock what works for you.

Thanks for all comments so far. I ran the Carista diagnosis and reset all fault codes. The engine warning light not longer glowed. After a trip of about 30 miles the warning light came on again. I ran a full diagnosis on Carista and it returned 5 manufacturer-specific codes, 32137, 32138. 32140, 32142 and 32144. I was not able to find any further information on the web. looks Like its time to call VW assistance.

Before calling VW assistance I did a further check. I reset the orange warning light using Carista. I drove 60 miles on the Motorway, engine smooth, and NO engine warning light . However, the orange Adblue with spanner came on indicating 600 miles before AdBlue should be topped up. ( a few day previously I had 4000 AdBlue miles remaining Then the orange oil can light came on flashing now and again. But NO orange engine light on so far. I returned home switched off the engine and then switched on the ignition - Orange engine warning light returned. The next morning I bought 10 litres of add blue and added 4 litres. This made no difference to the AdBlue warning light. Checked the forums again and came across a thread with rodent damage - checked under the van and saw chewed wires (we have lots of foxes where I live). VW/AA Assistance called and promptly arrived with a non VW technician (who was very good). He made a temporary fix to the wires to AdBlue injector and Oil sensor. All warning alarms cleared (so far) except the orange Adblue/ spanner. Now booked into SMG Cowfold next month.
The AA technician told me he has seen this many times on Ford Transits - and he said foxes have also been known to go for brake pipes.
I shall make a ball of chicken wire and push it under the van where the wires are located hopefully to prevent foxes from getting in, and look into ultra-sonic deterrents for rodents.

There's lots of threads about rodents and fox damage. The chilli tape from Ebay worked for me after 2 lots of wire damage.
