    I bought a 2000 Passat 6-cyl 4Motion a couple of years ago, and the car is now due for emissions inspection. Brought it over there and they can't pull the codes from the OBD port. Gets power, but no data. I can read *something* from the car with my cheapo scanner (RPMs, engine temp, MIL status)...

    Hi everyone, Have you had experience with Bluetooth OBD devices? I want to buy one that I can do instant monitoring values, see fault codes (thank God I am code free the last two months) and make little adjustments (throttle body etc.) using my iPhone. I envisaged to install a small laptop...

    Couldn't find anything recent in the B5 side about OBD tools. Wanted to ask for the definitive answer. I am not concerned about my windows going down by remote and I feel like that sways a lot of decisions. For general use diagnostics would you recommend VDS, VCDS, Obdeleven, or just a blue...

    Saw a reference to VCDS-Lite in the other thread. I didn't know a free version of the software existed. So, I'm curious, can someone clarify the additional capabilities/features that VCDS-Lite (with a 3rd-party OBDII-to-USB cable) will have AS COMPARED to a generic OBDII reader (which I...

    I'm curious myself how I would handle this for the Passat, but a friend has a 1999 Subaru that has once or twice thrown a blinking CEL, just for a few seconds. I'm assuming all makes/models would log this somewhere, but he says Autozone is unable to find anything with a scan. Is that because...

    2002 1.8t. 140k. Does anyone know if a sensor is bad can that cause the obd not to "work". I saw Scotty Kilmer video where he disconnects each sensor one by one and when he pulled the connector off a bad sensor the obd worked! I don't have a check engine light and I checked all the fuses...

    My nephew in England had this OBD Eleven adapter for VW, Audi, Skoda and such. He no longer needed it and mailed it to me last week. I got it this morning. Downloaded the app on my phone and plugged it in. It seems pretty good. There were a few faults that my OBD2 Scanner, or my mechanics heavy...

    Hello. I recently took the car to get smog check, and the people there couldn't connect to my computer. Luckily, I passed the smog check because my emissions where fine. The problem is that now i want to do a diagnosis in my car, but the OBD II connector seems to not be working. My ABS light is...

    A couple of days ago I had a heard and felt chatter from the car like if a stick got stuck in the fan. It lasted no more than 2 seconds and the sound disappeared and then the engine light went on. A few seconds after that, it started blinking. Just as I was about to pull over, the light went...

    I would preferably like to solve this problem by reprogramming the computer to skip the cat check or some other work around. If I remember from my 2000 Passat wagon I used to own, the VAG COM cable is expensive. Can I get a cheap cable somewhere and download the program on thrpiratebay to...
