Hi all, I have had a cheapy lead and registered copy of vcds lite that I have had for years and used happily on my t4's to set timing and read measuring blocks and reset faults etc
I used it to cancel an airbag light on our 2006 polo, thought while it was out I would plug it into our new t5.1...
2001 2.5TDi, the uprated Volvo version.
Drives very well, mechanically quiet, pulls like a train, chugs at idle, too much black smoke when pushed.
So, not knowing what might / might not have been done (or needs doing) to my Van, I decided to take the plunge and book it in with Wayne for a...
Just putting it out there that I've recently got a bonafide cable and software and am happy to offer the service of vagcom scans etc out in the Swindon area. I know how hard it was to find someone.

I have a VCDS/Vagcom cable. Is there an ODB II port that I can connect to on a 2001 T4 Syncro 2.5 TDi? Cannot seem to locate it in the usual places like under the fuse box or steering wheel like on my Audi.
Afternoon everyone. anyone know of any where in the Portsmouth area that can setup a t4 2.5tdi fuel pump using vagcom with a tci gauge? Replaced cambelt,oil pump and fuel pump belts at the weekend and fuel pump was a tooth out! So timed it correctly and now runs like sh*t and hard to start...
My van had a tachograph fitted and the dealer I bought from unplugged and removed it, however this caused the milage and trip milage to star out. He had to plug it back in and hide it under the glovebox.
This morning with the help of a friend with VCDS we figured it out and it is straight...
TDI Conversion now done T: - she starts and runs - but I now need to check the timing and can't do it with my VCDS Lite.
Does anyone near Chorley, Lancashire have a version that will check TDI timing.
This is one of the last jobs before I can then get it MOT'd
Van is a 96 T4 -...
When I open the passenger door after unlocking the van (T5 1.9) with the key fob, it doesn't acknowledge that the van has been opened and will lock the doors after a set period - is this correct? If so, then is it just a simple case of a Vagcom/VCDS ECU tweak required?
I always fear that the...
Hi guys I have a query for your vast experiences,

As my name suggests I'm a new Caravelle T5 174 auto owner. I bought the van as a disabled conversion and have spent the past week having the wheelchair lift/electric drivers seat & hand controls removed. These have all been done now but this has left me with a few problems that I'm...
Yesterday my mate and I had a day on our vans. I finished off his conversion and he did all my belts water pump and injectors.
When we were all done my van was really lumpy on idle. So leigh dug out vag com while I got on ros tec we found the idle adjust and set about messing around...
I am hoping some kind person with VAGCOM might be able to activate my cruise control for some beer tokens.
Or can someone point to a garage that doesn't charge a fortune.
After following some of the great advice on hear I got the kit from VW and have fitted it already.
got a feeling this is a dumb question so apologies in advance... :)
