    in this thread: the OP stated he was trying to read some data off the CAN Bus in his car, a 98 B5 in the UK. I replied probably in a rude fashion (as I am wont to do on...

    So I purchased a cable off ebay for my 2004 passat V6 GLX: Tried using the VCDS-lite, and I am able to see the serial port within the software, but unable to communicate with the...

    We've just taken the Passat to a local garage to diagnose an ABS warning light and the result was inconclusive. The garage recommended that we take the car to VW for further diagnostics. Local VW want £80 minimum to diagnose the fault. :cry: I've seen on the Intertubes ODBII diagnostic code...

    I've been using a friend's generic OBD-II scanner to help tune my car. 1. It has already provided some benefits vs. VAG-COM, most notably being able to see the Short-Term Fuel Trims (STFTs). 2. And now I know incontrovertably that the VAG multiplicative/learned trims are identically equal to...

    Does any one know if it is possible to relocate the ODB-II plug from under the steering wheel to the centre console? Is it easy? Do you need extra parts? Danny

    I am new to this but I would like to diagnose my own problems with my VW. Is the only difference between the VAG and OBDII the software. If that is the case, then can you buy a cable to connect your Laptop to your car and get the shareware version of VAGCOM. I see people with directions on...
