Hi guys,

Decided to get a VAGCOM or similar to check and reset any fault codes etc.

found this and it looks like good value for money

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAG-Car-Diagnostic-Scanner-Fault-Code-reader-/200574292584?pt=UK_Diagnostic_Tools_Equipment&hash=item2eb328d268

Is this the right one?

Is it good value?

Thanks,

Gareth

If you have a laptop running Windows XP then this will be far more useful.

This is what I have. Good bit of kit, easy enough to use once set up. Done it on a few cars now, won't do much other than checking and resetting fault codes but that's why it's £9!

Says that it works with Vista too, might be worth investing in for that money . . . I'm not proud of running Vista you know! :blush:

Trust me, from experience, it won't work on Vista unless you spend at least 4 hours arguing with it!

Just like everything else then! :D

Does anyone know if the eBay VAGCOM that you have been discussing will reset the airbag warning light? I am having difficulty with the horn and need to take the steering wheel off - this obviously upsets my Arosa and causes her to turn on her airbag light!

It wont let you connect to the airbag module in case it fries itself.

If you disconnect the battery, then remove airbag, then replace it before you reconnect the battery the light shouldnt come on

Too late - guess I'll have to pay Mr Airbag to come out and reset the bl**dy thing.
