Get in the car.
Start the engine.
Plug in the ScanGaugeII. It will start up a few seconds later.

Or just turn key to ON position. Then plug in to OBDII. Mine I didn't need to have the engine running. The manual is your friend.
On set up. Diesel A for fuel type.

VWs don't have an accessory key position

The ScanGauge shuts off it if sees the engine isn't running. Start the car.

I must have a weird SG then. When I installed mine I just turned the key till all the dash lights powered up, the so called on position then plugged in the SG pushed the mode key and it went threw the connecting thing. Connected in about 20 seconds. Then did the set up.

It will work with KOEO (key on engine off), but it will go to sleep if you stop pressing buttons. It remains awake when it senses an RPM signal. Either way will work, just keep in mind that the ScanGauge may go to sleep if the engine isn't running and you don't press any buttons for a few seconds (20?).

Thanks Mate. Thought I was losing it there. I must have been a really fast button pusher when I installed it a year or so ago.

If you scroll down in the list you'll find the section labeled "Catalyst Temp Sensors"



Instead of CTF or CTC, use EGT for the label on the units you prefer.

For information on how to program an X-Gauge, read page 38 on the Owner's Manual here:

Thanks,

Thanks for the info on this Jason, Sounded so cool I ran down to autozone and bought one. I went to X-gauge and installed the codes you have above and named them. I then pulled them up on the screen and there is no info displayed next to them. The others like water temp and fuel burn work fine. Any ideas?

Did you add it to an open Xguage slot? I put it in slot one and it didn't take. Toggled over and put it in 3 and worked like a charm. I didn't have the book open and just assumed the first slot was reserved.
