    is the lead actually using port 3?

    Look in device manager...

    Try it on all the com ports it should read - interface : ready !

    id also check that its been installed correctly with the disc that comes with the lead, check your pins on the eobd connector make sure theres not a bent one !!

    if its a copy lead then remove the current vcds and goto the official site -> downloads and you should see a link for 3rd party leads

    Download the software and try again... that worked for me, but in all honesty all you can do is reset the abs and maybe a few more little things.

    My lead went in the bin its that useless, better to spend some cash on the full tuxedo
    If i told you i have to kill you, but i could give you a clue and just rough you up a bit!

    If its a standard ebay Blue lead, you should be using VCDS Lite, VCDS11 is only for genuine cables afaik.

    The cheap cables can take a bit of prodding to get working, but they usually work just fine.

    You NEED to open device manager and see what com port the USB serial bridge is using, and choose the same option from inside VCDS.

    Also, you said "the cars not talking to comp", when infact the error you've got means the computer cant talk to the interface, rather than the car itself.

    best way is to clear all codes
    then rescan see what come back.
    they may be old codes.

    Pre-facelift seatbelts never had the sensors or anything in them I don't think.

    I can't only assume all FL belts are the same.

    The belts are different but interchangable.

    I have PFL belts in my FL as mine had been crashed and the pretensioners fired. Got some PFL ones for buttons on ebay.

    The autoscan you've done is a bit messy, i always just open the specific controller and query it directly. Far easier to see whats going on.

    You've also not cleared the DTC's, as that buttons greyed out on your screenshot. All you've done is cleared the results of the scan.

    Forget autoscan, open the engine controller, reset the codes and take for a drive for half an hour and see what comes back.

    Do same with the airbag (though you wont need to take it for a drive, just exit the controller, cycle the igntion, and go back in again)
