    Unhappy New TT Owner With Problems need VAGCOM scan to my car plz

    Hi Everyone, so I finally decided to buy an Audi TT, thought I should get an oldish one for now, just to see how I like driving them and overall quite happy. Although Ive now had a few lights come on the dash and not sure what they are? Is anyone able to help at all so that I can avoid being ripped off by audi dealers. If there was anyone local (Romford) who could come or I can go to them and do a diagnostic as a good will gesture I would be really appreciative and also advise me of what to look for in the car. As the seller was very dishonest now im suffering from it. Hope someone can help.

    Thank you ( " ; )



    The roof is securely closed but the signs on?

    Doesn't look like the engine is running in this pic? If this is the case, the lights should go out when the engine is started.

    Does it feel hesitant when you drive it? Or do the revs fluctuate? The EPC light might be crank position sensor.

    The traction control light could be ABS sensors - I've just changed one front and one rear (and the wiring to the front) as that was causing the ABS light and traction control light to come on. Bought the sensors from eBay for £5 rear and £8 for two fronts.

    The roof might just need a new switch as it's not picking up that it's closed.

    VCDS Lite cable is £17 delivered from eBay and you get a good amount of codes but you need to register it which costs £60 I think. I just Google the code numbers that aren't shown. It's a handy cable to have even just to point a garage in the right direction.

    Don't feel disheartened by a bad seller. A few fixes and you've got the car you wanted. A service wouldn't go amiss either if the previous owner hasn't taken car of it. New oil and oil filter as a minimum. And clean that dead skin off the dash

    It wont tell you whats wrong with your car, it merely gives you some possible areas to check, some errors can be brought on by other issues, so beware you research & check properly before condemning a part.

    You dont buy the software, vcds lite will never have the same access as the proper system, you need to upgrade your cable to the hex-can-usb of which I sell, which allows the full software to be used without restriction, pm for a price.
