Vag COM Lite diagnostic cable

Pricing: $49.00


Windows-based Diagnostic Software 
for VW / Audi / Seat / Skoda
for generic 3rd-party interfaces

VCDS-Lite is our low cost solution for older VW-Audi Group cars.  It works great with just about all the older models that didn't require a direct CAN connection for diagnostics.   The free shareware version does quite a lot and it's, well, free.    The fully registered version is does pretty much everything the older dealers' tools could on those cars, but even when fully registered, it will not have quite all of the functions that the full (non-lite) version of VCDS would provide. 

Some of thedifferences between versions and between the free VCDS-Lite Shareware and the Fully Registered version:

Free Shareware:

Cannot do AutoScan
Won't display text for all fault codes
No Basic Settings (so no TBA, Xenon levelling, etc or checking timing on TDI's)
No Adaptation Saving (so no changing of locking/lights/horn behavior)
No Output Tests
No tech support from Ross-Tech
Limitations of VCDS-Lite compared to VCDS even if Fully Registered:

No Generic OBD-II
Won't work with CAN-Bus vehicles
Fewer fault code definitions and label files
No built-in Activation (you'll be limited to a single PC)
No Advanced Measuring Blocks
No Acceleration Measurement
