Anyone know anything about this error and how to reset
theres a way of de-activating it altogether , did the car come with check control or was the obc retrofitted ? reason i ask is that when the obc is retrofitted the check control isusually inactive as nobody bothers setting it up

so was mine oem when there retrofitted you would be none the wiser as to wheter or not its from the factory the only way you can be sure is to pull it out and see what the connections are like or if you have the build sheet for the car , as for its meaning its exactly what it says your check control is inactive theres something wrong with it could be just a loose wire could be more

put your finger directly under it (hand in the sunglass holder bit) and pop it out and have a look
