Hi All.

Could anyone advise if I can clear this message myself following accident and vehicle repair?

It may need to be plugged into a computer for it to be reset.
Have you tried taking the battery off and leaving it for while then reconnecting it again leaving it for a period then try starting the car as this usually clears most faults.

If the car has had a front-end collision then some of the sensors behind the bumper may have been damaged or dislodged, as a lot of the cars protective elements are all linked, airbags front and side, seatbelt pre-tensioners etc so best to get it checked out by valid VX dealer or competent electrical technician.

I was getting this very often, got it checked by the dealership were I bought the car. They couldn't find the issue. I got it checked again but from another dealership. Turned out that my dealership mounted the number plate a little too high and covered the sensor.

Interesting…. As I have spotted my number plate has a section that is lower than the standard number plate… I have wondered if it was that. If I get a new plate, will it reset by itself? Or does something have to be reset in the system.
