Anyone have or know of a hex-can f/s?? Looking to buy

Or if I order one online not from Ross tech does it work properly and show the entire vcds interface?? (not vcds lite) and if I can do that is there any certain specs I need to look for in the cables?

Default Ross-Tech VAGCOM

Guys-

I bought the Rosstech VAGCOM back in 2009 for my then, new, TDI. Will it work on the newer VW's? With this buyback thing approaching, I might be interested in a 2017 Passat R-line. If I decide to stay with VW, it would be cool if my VAGCOM would work with the latest model VW. I know, I know.. I could email Rosstech and ask them.

Your answer is here: http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/car...ns/passat.html

HEX-USB+CAN (USB), HEX-COM+CAN (SERIAL), and Micro-CAN (USB) will work but read the chart for more info.

KII-USB will NOT work

Also, you should be able to use the HEX-NET.

Hello everyone,

I am In need of a Vagcom scan on my 3013 jetta tdi. I have the "glow plug" looking light blinking. It is not throwing any codes so I can not use my scanner. If anyone has a Vagcom scanner in San Diego that can do a scan would be a great help to me. I can pay you for your time.
Call or text me at 619-208-6862.
Thanks so much in advance

Just post in that forum that you need help in San Diego. If he doesn't respond, someone else will.

Edit. PM John.Jackson9213 He is in Miramar.

Hello all. maybe one of you can give some direction, my 2011 jetta sedan's radio just stopped working one day last month and after looking on some of the threads here most are saying they take the car to the dealer, who takes the radio out puts a refurbished one in and charges them $1000.00 then the dealer takes their old radio and refurbishes it for the next customer. My question is with my ROSS Tech can I reset the radio myself? Has anyone done this???

Are you accepting the buyback of your Jetta by VW? The radio does not have to be working when you turn the car in. Why worry about it?

I was trying to use VCDS on a fellow member's TDI and I got a flashing red led.
"Not able to communicate with controller". Does this indicate a problem with his ecm?

It's hard to say with the included info:

What year and model TDI were you trying to talk to?
Which VCDS interface were you using?
What version of VCDS?
Was the car's ignition turned on?
Was this "flashing red light" on the Ross-Tech interface or on the car somewhere?
Were you able to communicate with any of the other controllers?
What issues drove you to try to scan a "fellow member's TDI"? It could be a problem with his/her car. Does you interface work with other cars? (I assume it does).

I would hate to hazard a guess without more information.

Have Fun!

Don

The TDI is a 2000 Golf.
My cable is a genuine hex + can - usb.
The software is the latest update, release 17.8.
Ignition on, engine running (was attempting to check timing and IQ).
Red flashing led was on the Ross-Tech cable.
I only tried to connect to the engine controller.
The member has some issues with his engine I was trying to diagnose.
My interface works fine on my other 3 VAG vehicles.
Hence my post wondering if it indicates an ECU issue.
Any help much appreciated.
Thanks for replying, Don.

Why not ask Ross-Tech in their forum?

Does anyone know if there is someone close to me with bag com? I recently bought my first tdi. It is an 04 jetta with the bew block in it. It has an upgraded turbo in it GT17 and I am wondering if someone has already tuned it. I have no way of knowing or is there a way of knowing. Also it has cel and I am wanting it off. I don't know everything about these cars but motivated to learn. If someone could point me in the right direction of someone with vag-com or someone that tunes any help is useful.
