    2007 Audi A3 Vag Can problems with service reset and checking engine codes

    i have a 2007 Audi A3 2.0

    I want to reset my oil light and check a engine code.

    Im use to using basic stand alone obd readers but Audi i found out has its own system.

    I got a Vag can cable from ebay 5.5 and pin beta 3.9 written on it.

    I got software 5.5 Vag Commander

    - installed the drivers - cable shows up as usb serial port com 3

    when I go to use the software it says

    Target device not found!

    - drivers appear okay and have tried different drivers and all install fine.

    -I tried vag command 1.4 , 3.0 , 5.0

    target device not found error

    Any ideas what Im doing wrong?
