For anybody who doesnt know what 'VAGCOM' is -

Now known as VCDS (vagcom diagnostic system) is a software which will perform most of the functions of the expensive electronic diagnostic tools available only to official VW Dealers.
In the past, these dealership-only tools have prevented owners, and many small independent repair shops from performing some fundamental tasks, such as diagnosing problems, diesel ignition timing, modification of convenience options such as automatic door unlocking, coding a replacement electronic control unit (ECU) or key to the vehicle, and monitoring of many vehicle sensors for diagnosing problems. Unlike generic on-board diagnostics (OBD-II / EOBD), VCDS uses the more in-depth Volkswagen Group-specific manufacturer protocol commands, which allows the user to access all diagnostic capable vehicle systems


I currently have the shareware version of VCDS on my laptop which only allows me to fault code read, and reset fault codes. I am offering this service to members if they require it, although i am in the process of getting the full version which will allow me to do some pretty in-depth things to your car.

If anybody has a fault with their Mk3 onwards Golf, or Polo, or T5, etc etc and the vehicle is fitted with the OBD port then let me know and i will be glad to try and diagnose the fault for you. If anything it will at least give you a head start where to start looking for your fault.

Because this shareware version is available to anybody to download for free i will not charge for this service. Instead of payment i will gladly accept a nice cold beverage at one of the DBS meets. (although if i have to travel some distance i would appreciate a bit of cash to cover my fuel costs)

Hope this can be of use to members on here.

Cheers

Si Very Happy

Very Happy
