But the truth is after you buy it and test it — you will find common connection errors, unpredictable timeouts and grey boxes unable to show designated car data. We know this because we bought them all and thoroughly tested them. For all these reasons, let me tell you about our VAGCOM. Imagine how exciting it will be to finally own the worlds most advanced and comprehensive diagnostic scanner tool, chiptuner and component modifier for Audi, Volkswagen, SEAT and Skoda cars made between (1 Jan 1994) to ( ). That's exactly what this VAGCOM scanner is about and there's nothing on the market that comes even close.
Let me explain. This VAGCOM interface (with original Ross-Tech™ VCDS 12.12.0 software) will let you to see, thoroughly diagnose and modify cars performance and health information, read/clear generic and manufacture fault codes — and change various data parameters like: adaptions, mileage adjustment, behavior of components, testing components, brake bleed, DPF, etc. Basically you will have same dealer level capability as a professional VAG approved mechanic who would charge $250+ per hour. What's more — this VAG-COM cable also works as generic OBD2 scanner on any car make in the world (EG: BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Subaru, Ford, etc). So you can plug it into any brand of car and it will scan it's engine/transmission faults.
Meaning you can extract, diagnose and reset 4,000 common OBD2 Engine/Transmission fault codes on non-VAG vehicles. And 17,000+ generic and OEM manufacturer codes on VAG vehicles (Audi, Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda). Before describing what you'll get and available functions, let's me first answer the most common question. What's the Difference Between (Total Car Diagnostics VAG-COM ) — and Original (Ross-Tech VAG-COM)? Firstly, this is NOT the original RossTech VAG-COM kit as sold for $600+ on their website.
(Even though we encourage you to get the original on their website right now or eventually. If you're truly serious, caring mechanic who deals with customer cars.
But if you won't do that for whatever reason, then keep reading.) Our version of VAG-COM cable uses a 3rd Party manufactured chip. That's why we can keep costs down — because we're not using Ross-Tech™ OEM chip — but 3rd party chip using identical firmware code. In short, this cuts down our OEM licensing fees. Hence we pass those savings onto YOU. So to clarify. Total Car Diagnostics VAGCOM cable gives you identical capability of what original VAG-COM $600+ kit can do. It also comes with original, genuine and license-activated RossTech VCDS 12.12.0 software.
(Software is NOT cracked or modified in any way. It's original software.). CAUTION: This is NOT one of those cheap $19 VAG-COM KKL 409.1 (or) 12.12.1/2/3 (or) VCDS-Lite VAGCOM cables that you can find on eBay/Google/AliExpress — with limited functions and cracked software. To summarize: This VAG-COM cable and software is the exact same product in terms of functionality and features when compared side-by-side to original RossTech VAG-COM $600+ kit. You're about to own it at a fraction of the cost. Also our VAGCOM works on unlimited VIN / vehicles - and on unlimited computers.
So no restrictions of any kind. Disclaimer: We are not associated to RossTech company. All technical help for this product must go to Total Car Diagnostics, and not Ross-Tech. And we hope you'll see how good our cable is that you'll eventually buy original Ross-Tech, because they absolutely deserve it and are always up to date.

Next the video shows how the output from each wheel speed sensor is measured and shows by VCDS software as the car is driven a short distance by testing assistant. Speed signal from each irrespective sensor is displayed in the measuring blocks and the output is seen to count up from 0k/ph to about 10k/ph on 3 wheels while one wheel remained at 0k/ph. Output is also displayed using the VAG-Scope tool which is included in the VCDS software. This shows how wheel speeds can be recorded and viewed after a short drive - when there is no assistant available to operate the vehicle.
ABS pump, brake pedal switch and modulator valve block are tested thoroughly using the output tests. (Needs Flash enabled browser.

. Uncompress the file. Double-click on 'Install.exe' to install the drivers.
Plug cable into any computer's USB port. 'Found New Hardware Wizard' will start and it will ask you 'Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for the software?' Select 'Yes'. Select 'Install the software automatically'. After the installation is complete, click 'Finish'. 'Found New Hardware Wizard' will start once again because there are two drivers for this cable.

Other software or devices using USB ports or that same COM Port could be conflicting. You should uninstall the suspected software or device for troubleshooting this problem.
It should be noted that VAG-COM 409.1 KKL cable does not work on vehicles running on CAN-BUS System. Cable must be plugged into the vehicle with ignition ON. Test the cable with each COM Port from 1 to 4 in Windows Device Manager. Make sure that the driver is installed and configured as explained in Step 1. More Troubleshooting Tips:. Only Audi, Volkswagen, Skoda and Seat vehicles are supported. Other brands will only work for generic OBD-II functions.
If VAG-COM 409.1 KKL cable doesn't connect — or if you get the error message 'Can't Synch Baud Rate' — then go to Options and set Start Baud to 9600. If 9600 doesn't work, try 4800 and 1200. Turn the vehicle's ignition OFF and back ON after each failed attempt to connect.
