If yours is an early van it won't have a full CAN system. It has some internal communication (I think the windows have the more basic LIN BUS communication between themselves for instance) but I don't think you can expect VCDS to communicate with a CAN gateway as you would with a later van. The dash, engine and ABS communicate with each other via CAN but as far as I know there is no CAN connection to the diagnostic connector. You can still get CAN faults coming up in individual controllers where they will refer to communication with another controller.

I'm certainly no expert on CAN systems though so this is just what I've read. You don't say what year your van is but I'm talking about '03 - maybe to '05, possibly '06.

If it's a genuine cable you could ask Ross Tech, their support is very good. Make sure you don't have any blown fuses.
