    VAG-COM scanning & help

    OK, are you having some ECU/ABS related problems and want to scan those DTCs? This is the place to be - where forum users can check to see if there's anyone in their local vicinity with VAG-COM, the PC based VW/Audi/Seat/Skoda diagnostics tool.

    Drop your local volunteer a PM or email and we'll see what we can do! :-)

    for clarification: The 95 model year cars got the "16pin OBD2" style diags connector, whereas earlier cars will have the "2x2" connectors - if you're unsure which your car has, just pull gently up on the gearshift boot plastic surround and the diags socket will be exposed underneath... see pictures below for clarification

    FOR REFERENCE:
    VAG-COM can only communicate with the VR6's Motronic ECU (not G60's Digifant or 16v/8v's) but all Corrados' ABS, Auto G.box and OE Immobiliser (if fitted).
    Below are pictures of the two types of diagnostics interface found on the Corrado...

    If you can let us know what leads you've got with your VAG-COM (The 16pin OBD2 style connector and/or the older 2x2 connectors) and what area you're prepared to cover (Staffs?) I'll edit you into the top message...

    Good idea this, nice one! When did you get the "2x2" Criss? If I can find my missing vag-com plug I may give you a call if I'm going to be in the merssyside area. Where does the plug run to? (ECU?)

    Don't know how it gets there but it goes to the ECU and the ABS. Unfortunately for G60 owners VAG-COM can only talk to the ABS, not the G60's ECU.

    Have a look here - http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/cars/dlc.html for possible locations of your plugs...

    The 1.8 16V doesn't have em - different ECU... the 2.0L does have em (2x2 style) but like the G60 can only diagnose ABS faults...

    Just to clarify,my VR is late 94 and has the sixteen pin OBD2 style connector.
    I have just received my vag-com software and would be willing to help out on a limited basis.
    The only limitation being vehicles would have to be driven to my location,Peterborough,Cambs. :wink:

    Sorry no longer available
