Reading the fault codes from any module on the car is just a few button clicks away.

If you prefer you can use the key board for almost all the features in VCDS (ie. enter 01 for engine, then press ‘F’ for fault codes. all buttons are labelled with their keyboard shortcuts)

Clearing the codes is just as easy. As you can see in the screen shot above, after displaying the codes the tool gives you several easy next steps.

All fault codes are displayed with their DTC number, their full text meaning, text elaboration (ie. short circuit to earth, voltage too high etc) and where applicable the VAG component code for the part concerned.

Don't forget, when you buy VCDS from us, you get free telephone support for car fault diagnostics included. So if you're not sure how to proceed after a code read, give us a call or email us
