1.What is VAG OBD Assistant Function? Why do you need a VAG OBD Assistant? Where to get VAG OBD Assistant?

Vw, Audi, Skoda and other 4th generations of anti-theft system of the cars , in the situation of needing add key or the situation key all lost, the current market equipment can not read anti-theft data (such as Xhorse VVDI2, AVD,I AP PRO, Lonsdor K518ise and other equipment), or need to disassemble the dashboard to get anti-theft data. The steps is complex and risky, and it takes a long time.Now you only need to use VAG OBD assistants, connect to the vehicle and connect to the network to get the anti-theft data of the vehicle in about 3-5 minutes (depending on the network situation, or the number of users to determine the length of time)

After online access to anti-theft data, the system will automatically save the documents according to the frame number in the VAG OBD document directory, generated files, support the use of current popular equipment, can directly generate dealer keys, and learn key data.

For vehicles with MQB anti-theft system, this device can also be used if the anti-theft data cannot be read directly, but it can only be used to add keys. (for example, add the key of Johnson dashboard).A4L Q5 can not read BCM2 data directly, showing data length error, you can use this design to calculate BCM2 data.The 14-year A6 A7 A8 Touareg hui ang 5-generation anti-theft system can not obtain BCM2 data when all the keys are lost. It can also be used to calculate BCM2 data online, and then match the keys with VVDI2 APPRO and other equipment.

Note: The premise of using this equipment is that the vehicle can not be tampered with information, the vehicle state is legal. If the information is tampered with, then the data can not be calculated.

Why can’t I get VAG-COM to communicate at all

Check the following:

1.Is the adapter plugged into the car? An Serial Interface that is not plugged into the car will always be “Not Found”. It gets power from the car!

2.Is the car’s ignition switch in the ON position?

3.Is it plugged into the correct serial port? Some PC’s have the ports mis-labeled.

4.Are the serial ports on your PC properly configured?

5.Disable Palm HotSync or Microsoft ActiveSync software!

6.If you have a 1997 or newer car with an aftermarket radio or if you have used your ISO-COM Interface on a car with an aftermarket radio, read this page.

7.Check our Issues page for any special configuration settings that may be necessary for your vehicle
If you are using a power supply for a laptop, it should be one specifically designed for that purpose, NOT a “universal” adapter.

Note: If you test the Vag Com 18.2 port, but an hourglass appears, you may have an IRQ conflict. This may not show up in Device Manager as a conflict. But, try this:

(1)Start>Run>MSINFO32.EXE to bring up the System Information utility.
(2)Go to Hardware Resources>IRQs This should show a list of all devices by their IRQ, so you can see if there are any repeated or shared IRQs.

If all else fails, feel free to call or email us, making sure to provide the brand and model of vehicle, brand and model of PC, and version of VAG COM Cables.

What are the computer requirements when VAG-COM works

1

1 Will VAG-COM work with my car?

VAG-COM will work with most Volkswagen and Audi models sold World-Wide 1994 through 2006. It will work with some cars all the way back to model year 1990. It will also work with most late-model SEAT, and Skoda models sold in markets other than North America. If your VW or Audi has a 16-pin “OBD-II style” Data Link Connector, VAG-COM will definitely work. If your car has the old “2×2″ Data Link Connection, check if there is a wire going to each pin, as shown in the picture. If there are four wires, VAG-COM should work. If there are only three, it won’t. Please see these Application Charts where you can select your model and see which modules can communicate with VAG-COM. Also see the Issues page for a few things that may not work as expected. If in doubt, e-mail us.

2 Will VAG-COM work even if my car is “chipped”?

Yes. If it doesn’t work in a “chipped” car, the chip-vendor did something seriously wrong! Chips from reputable vendors are fully VAG-1551 (and VAG-COM) compliant.

3 What functions are included in the current release?

VAG-COM is a software program that turns your PC into sophisticated VW/Audi diagnostic tool, which performs the functions of a factory VAG-1551 or VAG-1552 scan tool and more. Please see the Function Chart for the current feature set.

4 What are the computer requirements?

A PC running Windows: We recommend at least a Pentium-100 (or AMD equivalent) with 16MB of RAM and Windows 95 or newer. VAGCOM 18.2 may work on some lesser PC’s, but anything less than the above recommendation is unsupported. Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, and XP are all fine. Available disk-space should be a non-issue; VAG-COM requires less than 10 MB. If you are using a power supply for a laptop, it should be one specifically designed for that purpose, NOT a “universal” adapter.

To use one of our Serial Interfaces, the PC must have an available RS-232 Serial port! Otherwise, you’ll need to choose one of our USB Interfaces. A RS-232 Serial Port looks like this:

Observe the port we surrounded with the GREEN oval. Notice the 9 MALE pins? That is a SERIAL port and WILL work! Observe the port circled and crossed in RED:
