Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions


Will VCDS (VAG-COM) work with my car?

VCDS (VAG-COM) will work with most Volkswagen and Audi models sold worldwide from 1994 to 2015+. It will work with some cars as early as 1991. It will also work with most 1996-2015+ SEAT and Skoda models.

Certain 2003 and newer models (see below) do require the CAN-enabled interfaces (HEX-USB+CAN or Micro-CAN), whereas earlier cars only require the KII-USB interfaces.

If your VW or Audi has a 16-pin OBD-II style Data Link Connector, VCDS (VAG-COM) will definitely work. If your car has the old '2x2' Data Link Connection, please check the wiring to the connectors: if there are four wires, VCDS (VAG-COM) should work. If there are only three, it won't.

Please see these Application Charts where you can select your model and see which modules can communicate with VCDS (VAG-COM). Also see the Ross-Tech Issues page for a few things that may not work as expected.

What is CAN and why is that different to the earlier cars?

CAN stands for Controller Area Network. CAN is a new means of communicating with the car for diagnostics used by the latest generations of VW, Audi, SEAT, and Skoda vehicles (certain models from 2003). Unlike the older ISO9141 system which used a single K-line for diagnostic communications, the new CAN-Bus system uses a twisted pair of wires with differential signaling. CAN is considerably faster than ISO-9141 (500 kpbs vs. 10.4 kbps). Both new hardware and new software are required in order to communicate with cars using CAN for diagnostics.

Which VW/Audi/Seat/Skoda cars use CAN for diagnostics?

Some examples of the newer cars that require the CAN-enabled interface are:

  • All Golf-5 platform cars (A5 platform) including:
    • 2003+ VW Touran (1T chassis)
    • 2004+ VW Golf/Rabbit (1K chassis)
    • 2004+ VW Caddy (2K chassis)
    • 2004+ Audi A3/S3 (8P chassis)
    • 2004+ Seat Altea (5P chassis)
    • 2004+ Skoda Octavia (1Z chassis)
    • 2005+ Seat Toledo (5P chassis)
    • 2005+ Golf Plus (5M chassis)
    • 2005+ Seat Leon (1P chassis)
    • 2005.5+ Jetta (1K chassis)
    • 2006+ Eos (1F chassis)
    • 2007+ Audi TT (8J chassis)
    • 2007+ VW Golf Variant/Wagon (1K chassis)
    • 2008+ VW Tiguan (5N chassis)
    • 2008+ Audi A3 Cabriolet (8P chassis)
    • 2011+ VW Jetta (16/AJ chassis)
    • 2012+ VW Beetle (5C/AT chassis)
  • 2003+ Audi A8 and A8L (D3 platform, 4E chassis)
  • 2005+ Audi A6/S6/RS6 (C6 platform, 4F chassis)
  • 2005+ Audi A4/S4/RS4 ("B7" platform) (some control modules)
  • 2005.5+ VW Passat (B6 Platform, 3C chassis)
  • 2006+ Audi Q7 (4L chassis)
  • 2007+ VW Touareg (7L6 chassis) ("facelift", built after Nov. 30 2006)
  • 2007+ VW Phaeton (3D chassis) ("facelift", MY 2008+)
  • 2007+ Audi R8 (42 chassis)
  • 2008+ Bentley Continental GT/Flying Spur (3W chassis) ("facelift", MY 2008+)
  • 2008+ Audi A5/S5 (B8 platform, 8T chassis)
  • 2008+ Audi A4/S4/RS4 (B8 platform, 8K chassis)
  • 2008+ VW Passat CC (35 chassis)
  • 2008+ Seat Ibiza (6J chassis)
  • 2008+ Skoda Superb (3T chassis)
  • 2009+ VW Scirocco (13 chassis)
  • 2009+ VW Golf Mk.6 (5K chassis)
  • 2009+ Audi Q5 (8R chassis) (2010+ models may have FP in the VIN)
  • 2009+ Seat Exeo (3R chassis)
  • 2010+ Skoda Yeti (5L chassis)

Will a HEX-USB+CAN interface work with the earlier non-CAN cars?

Yes. The HEX interfaces support the earlier non-CAN cars as well as the later CAN-enabled cars.

How do I access the earlier cars with the 2x2 diagnostic connector or the VW LT Van with the round Mercedes connector?

You can purchase the 2x2 extension cable for just £9.95 (inc VAT and delivery) or the LT Van adapter for just £20 (inc VAT and delivery).

What are the computer requirements?

A PC running Windows. The minimum recommended spec is:

  • at least a 1 GHz Pentium-3 (or AMD equivalent)
  • 256MB of RAM
  • Windows Vista or newer

VCDS (VAG-COM) may work on some lesser PC's, but anything less than the above recommendation is unsupported. USB interfaces will not work at all with Windows 95, 98 or NT4.

Available disk-space is a total non-issue, VCDS (VAG-COM) requires less than 100 MB.

Systems running Windows in a virtualized environment (for example Virtual PC on a Mac) are not supported.

Exelant service and a great product

Review submitted on 05/09/2016 by Stephen Oakley
Purchased this product to read and clear fault codes appearing on my 2011 passat. Got 2 fault codes and more importantly this will reset and get my car out of limp home mode.
Great service from Gendan, excellent communications, next day delivery which was early in the morning and contacted prior with a 1hr time slot.
Does seem like a lot of money, but with free software upgrades I see it as an investment, and I loath paying dealers x amount of pounds just to read a fault code!
Highly recommended.

Review submitted on 24/08/2016 by Stephen Hewitt
had tool a few weeks before trying on audi a1 2012 went straight into car found fault straight away job sorted 2011 plate vw golf plus found injector no 1 fault changed part had to get security code no problem with this tool had to input new injector code in job done would recomend this tool even if you have other tools can be good money maker for instance vw quoted 1.285 plus vat for injector job paid for itself on this job alone get one get it from gendan

Review submitted on 23/02/2016 by Paul
Bought this mainly for working on Bentleys.

I already have a VAS lead (copy) which can be a bit flaky at times.

This goes straight in and allows you to get into all the systems that I have tried so far.

I would also recommend Gendan as your supplier. Helpful, knowledgeable and super fast delivery for free.

Review submitted on 14/02/2016 by Steven Randall
I was in two minds whether to buy the Full or Lite version, but so glad I went for the Full, Had Issues with my Audi A3 Roof, that was quickly sorted with the product, then Work Colleague Peugeot had engine light appear, again a quick plug in and saw that the Throttle Position Sensor had failed, then this week Wifes Car would not start, and again used the equipment to see that the Water Temp Sensor was reading incorrect values, so already the Lead & Software has paid for itself... Cannot Recommend you guys enough, and the Emails are Fantastic !!!

Review submitted on 10/02/2016 by Mike
I'd never heard of Gendan before I purchased this and I'm glad I tried them out. Good service and quick delivery with lots of communication along the way.

VCDS has proven invaluable in fault finding on my Passat and it makes carrying out work so much easier. Plus the moment you tell anyone you have a full VCDS they all want to be your friend and offer you tea and bacon to come and find problems with their cars.
Worth it for that alone.

Review submitted on 22/11/2015 by Adam Denham
Ordered my HEX-USB+CAN on a Sunday afternoon (non working day) and cable was delivered to my house by Tuesday, and my car fault was fixed by Saturday, very impressed, thank you gendan

Review submitted on 07/10/2015 by Tomasz Ciechowicz
Wow!!! amazing service i order yesterday after 4pm I received today 10 am highly recommended GENDAN for everyone who want buy this product thanks:)

Review submitted on 03/10/2015 by [anonymous]
Absolutely fantastic piece of kit! Brought another Audi 3 months ago which is my 3rd car in the VAG group in succession so thought it would come in handy, and boy have I been right! Ordered on a Tuesday, 24 hours later it was on my doorstep. So I decided to run an autoscan of my car, thought at least I would have a base guide to work from. Loan behold it finds 2 faults straight off the bat! An electrical fault in passenger exterior mirror (little did I know the mirror was not getting hot in slightest) and also an issue with the Haldex 4 wheel drive system where the clutch pump (V181) had failed. Suffice to say the very next morning I called Audi and had it booked in to be fixed under warrenty. Out of curiosity I did some digging to find out how much it would of cost if not picked up by VCDS and repaired out of Warrenty by Audi - £610 for the 4 wheel drive system and another £289 for the wing mirror!!!! This thing made its money the very first hour of me owning it! For anyone with a VAG group car is an absolute must!!! This piece of kit is a real gem and you will NOT be disappointed! Really easy to use (I also changed my lights from tourist mode back to uk mode) an you never know it may just end up saving you a real packet like it did for me! As for the service from Gendan = Top notch - from order to dispatch was around 2 hours! Real quick and on my door very next day... A++++ all round!

Review submitted on 25/06/2015 by Philip Ardell
Hello All
I purchased this VCDS unit for my 56 plate Audi Allroad at the reccommendation of Chris at VW Audi Forum.
It is a complicated beast and tales of cost over runs are woeful.
I originally wanted to fit LED rear lights but were told by an auto electrician that it was going to cost around £800.00 or more to do this.
With the support of Gendan and the VW Audi support group I did it for the cost of the VCDS unit.
Also handy to look at the diagnostics of the car before it goes into the garage for a service etc. When told of the various faults the car has ...... you can say before I brought the car in this morning it had no faults!
Audi did a repair on the rear left window and accidentally knocked off a speaker wire. I did not know or notice they had done this but the VCDS unit did so I rang them and said the stereo did not seem quite right ........... so I took it back in and sure enough they said they had accidentally knocked the wire off and had refitted it.
Just recently the car did not seem to be going as well as it should so I plugged it and fixed all faults and it is back to running like a clock.
It diagnosed a throttle body fault at VW when their unit would not.

Review submitted on 02/01/2015 by Mark David Jones
Fantastic piece of hardware/software, very easy to use and invaluable even for fairly basic operations let alone all the complex stuff it can do. Found that my A6 V6 TDI had 3 glowplugs out and it even told me which ones. Also fairly intuitive once you get your head around it. Dont be ripped off at main dealers or even independents with this tool, diagnose it yourself and then decide who to let fix it if you are not competent or confident.
Also, many thanks to Gendan for the very quick delivery over the Christmas period.

Review submitted on 11/10/2014 by [anonymous]
Highly recommended. In many cases you will stand very little chance of figuring out what is wrong with a modern car without a diagnostic tool such as this. You can even use it to interrogate a car for faults before and shortly after purchasing. You are paying for an interface cable which is coded to allow you to use the Ross VCDS software which has had many years of development. This kit will do as much or more than much more expensive equipment. There is plenty of help available via forums etc for users. Phoned Gendan a couple of times for their advice before buying. Placed order before 16:00hrs and received it next morning.

Review submitted on 24/08/2014 by Wayne
Excellent service delivered as promised within 24 hours.
It is nice in this day and age of poor service to find a company that delivers as it promises and with no extra charges.
I have been looking to purchase this for a while and was let down by another VCDS supplier, so thought about going down the Fleabay route, but Gendan have restored my faith and I am glad I bought the genuine lead.

Review submitted on 24/07/2014 by Paul
what a wonderful piece of kit
managed to sort all my running issues on my skoda octavia 1.9 tdi

Excellent service from GENDAN, ordered and delivered in less than 24 hrs, credit to FedEx as well, quality product from Ross-Tech, easy to setup and use, will need a lot more time to understand all that can be done, many thanks.

Review submitted on 28/04/2014 by Aly Chick
Ordered the VAG-COM late in the day and was with me within 24 hours. Excellent product and saves a lot of money in garage costs. Definitely recommend the product and and the great service Gendan offers.

Review submitted on 11/04/2014 by Irek
I bought it few days ago and Im very satisfied from purchase.
Finally I could do this what dealer wasnt able to do with their expensive tools.
Thanks to this interface I can do nearly everything what is possible to program in my VW modules.
Using VCDS from Ross Tech is simple despite some description missing of some bits in modules Its worth to buy for this price.
If you know what you doing and own a VAG car this is another must have tool which will save you lots of time wasted dealing with sometimes not user friendly dealer service and occasionally might save you some money in the way you might never notice.
Using VCDS is easy and safe despite that you need any pc or laptop. I was using my laptop and couple of times battery just go flat and it just switch off without warning and best thing is, that nothing happened to car and no errors comes up.

Really for me this is very good purchase and I should buy this before I bought much more expensive tool (nearly 1400 £)

Review submitted on 05/04/2014 by [anonymous]
Best tool I bought for my A4. Thanks

Review submitted on 29/01/2014 by Yas
Good handy tool, done some coding to enable MPG display and a few other tweaks readily available through Ross-tech wiki, service was excellent by Gendan.

Review submitted on 16/01/2014 by Tom
Excellent item, well worth the money and the service from Gendan was perfect - next day delivery as advertised. Dont waste your money on the fake cables, you will regret it!

Review submitted on 14/01/2014 by David Omara
i ordered vcds on friday afternoon and it came monday. it was easy to set up,clear instructions came with it and you can register for support too on the ross tech web site. i had wanted vcds for ages and am really glad i finally bought it, ive only done a full scan as yet but know it will be a great asset when i need it in the future. i say treat yourself and buy it you wont regret it

Review submitted on 11/12/2013 by Mark Cluckie
really awesome product, dont waste your time with cheap ebay cables! you get what you pay for at the end of the day. staff are awesome and are really helpful. 5*

Review submitted on 26/11/2013 by [anonymous]
Very fast delivery, next day so no issues there. Cant argue with the fact that its an extremely useful extra tool to have. Whilst it might seem to be initially quite pricey (AFAIK you cannot get it substantially cheaper anywhere else), when you consider not only what a main dealer will charge, but also the travelling time to visit a garage etc, it cuts out a lot of that hassle, as long as you know what you're doing with it, and you use a little common sense. Have already used mine to perform a few scans and clear the service indicator. Also hoping to get my money back through doing scans for others. Havent used everything on it yet, but give me time......

Review submitted on 20/10/2013 by Michael Parry
anyone still thinking about buying vcds (vag-com) go ahead and buy one you will not regret it they are first class product and company

Review submitted on 28/09/2013 by [anonymous]
Ordered this after 3pm and got it the next day! Its well worth the money! My local VW specialist charge £45 just to read the fault codes and i have already used it 4 times so it wont be long before it pays for itself! Ive found several faults with my 2 cars and they are now sorted! No more warning lights on the dashboard!

Review submitted on 28/08/2013 by John Allwright
Excellent product, Excellent company to purchase from, Excellent delivery and service! What more can I say, product is really easy to use and set up, and Gendan offer a superb service with next working day delivery as promised, Many Thanks :-)

Review submitted on 01/08/2013 by Dalrimple
What can i say, super fast delivery, great product, has done the job and will do many more, easy set up and to use, dont hesitate if you are buying from these guys, they deliver all round. cheers again guys

Review submitted on 11/06/2013 by John Stott
Wasnt sure whether to buy this as all I have is Macs running windows through VM Fusion. Need not have worried as the software and interface lead work perfectly. Much better than the generic diagnostic tool I had before as there is much more info on the fault codes detailed.

Review submitted on 29/05/2013 by [anonymous]
I was unsure which Ross-Tech VCDS would be suitable for my needs so I sent an email for a bit more information. I couldnt believe how quick I got a reply (within 10 minutes). I purchased the VCDS (VAG-COM) HEX-USB+CAN Interface Package on the 28.5.13 at 16:25 and I received it by next day courier at no extra charge at 10am. Now thats what I call great service, and superfast delivery. This kit is well worth the money when you weigh up how much Volkswagen charge for diagnostics in excess of £80. And you also get free updates and support after registering product.

Review submitted on 03/04/2013 by [anonymous]
Great kit,does everything you could possibly need to do on anything VAG.. Our company has needed this software for a while with the way the modern VAG cars are and its finally great to have it at hand.. Great price also.. 10/10 from Gendan for delivery and contact..Would certainly use again.

Review submitted on 15/03/2013 by Darrens
I ordered this at half 2 on Wednesday, and recieved it at 10am the next morning!. I have read so many reviews about this product online, I decided to bite the bullet and get one. It seems a little expensive, but is a truely amazing bit of kit, its not locked to one vehicle (as many are), and offers free updates. For the amount garages can charge just to tell you whats wrong, it will easily pay for itself over a few years, and with all the other tweeks it will allow you to do, it is a great bit of kit to own.

Review submitted on 08/01/2013 by Nigel Maples
I ordered this on Monday at 4pm, it arrived the next morning just before 9, i then downloaded the software direct from ross tech and used it on my A6, absolutely brilliant bit of kit and a must have for the vag owner. So easy to use and cant wait to learn more of what else it does.

Review submitted on 14/08/2012 by Stephen Haines
exactly as described, genuine article, delivered next working day as promised... A* net store... thankyou gendan... i will be back again and again...

Review submitted on 05/08/2012 by [anonymous]
This is by far the best diagnostic tool I have bought, easy to use with great info on the Ross Tech website. All at a very good price.

Review submitted on 17/07/2012 by Craig Fryer
I ordered this Friday with next day delivery and it came on Saturday, I am very happy with Gendan service not only were they the cheapest in the UK but very helpful.

I setup the VCDS software as soon as it arrived and I went straight out to my VW Golf Mk5 and everything I wanted to do was done with ease from activating additional features to changing my steering wheel to a multi-function one and re calibrating the steering sensor A++++

Review submitted on 21/05/2012 by Andy Stringfellow
This is a great bit of kit. Only had it just over a week but well worth the money. Can look at all systems in the car and look for any fault codes. You can also change some settings within the systems. I have changed how the central locking works with out any problems.

Review submitted on 22/03/2012 by [anonymous]
We purchased this tool a month ago as a fall back when our far more expensive machine made by B**** fails as has to be sent away for repair. We are a busy workshop and its used many times throughout a day. The lads who use this tool prefer it to the professional machine we have and as yet have not found an application that we cannot complete. Very impressed with the delivery, ease of installation, instructions and support.

Review submitted on 23/02/2012 by Frank Foy
Fantastic product quick delivery. Please learn by my mistake. I was foolish enough to try one of those Chinese leads sold on ebay. Dont buy them. Screwed up my Intrument control codes for no reason. Anyway, decided to bite the bullet and buy the right tool!! plugged it in and it does everything it says on the tin! Wish I hadnt wasted my money on imitations...

Review submitted on 22/01/2012 by Robert Ellis
Bought this product back in December and it has proved to be a worth every penny. Saved me time and money been able to fault find and sort out any problems found, quite easy to use and install on to your laptop, and gives you the electronic control over your car, so dont be afraid to buy and learn your self.

Review submitted on 28/10/2011 by Alex
The VCDS is a great bit of kit. Takes a while to learn how to operate it competently but the VCDS website really helps and there is always google - someone will have already had the same problem and will have the answers you need. Mine paid for itself within a few weeks (fault diagnosis, service resets, transmitter programming and mileage checking - just for starters!)
