    No, because it's nothing but a dang reminder, and that fault code indicates the cluster believes some channels are "out of sorts".

    Is there anything in the EPA or DOT regulations that require reminders at all?

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    If the cluster is in error and the MIL resides in it than isn't that under useful life warranty?

    Yes and isn't that discretion left to the self regulating manufacturer, further using good engineering judgement when writing or dissemination of a required RTFB or service book to perform required maintenance or reminders to maintain a warranty and the required useful life of an AECD and is what is typically used by an OEM if not performed as a basis to void such a warranty?

    The cluster does not have a fault that is in any way emissions-related, nor would the fault prevent emissions-related faults or warnings from showing up, nor would it even prevent service reminders from being displayed, nor would this fault be visible to any generic OBD-II scan tool. So no, I don't think it's under the usefult life warranty.

    Yeah but how is it any different than when the immobilizer resides in a cluster & If its part of it and the MIL resides there and it required an adaptation or any related function for that component, it is required to be under useful life warranty or disseminated functions, right?
    Those adaptions are directly related to care or recommendations in the RTFB or service book no?
    VW tried that same angle in beginning with immobilizer generations saying it isn't related because if car isn't running it doest produce SMOG & it was shot down resulting in things like NASTF and the IRF program.

    I did exactly as Uwe suggested: "Change to fixed Intervals (Rest of World)" and that cleared up the code.

    Thanks Uwe!
