    Could you post an autoscan so that we can see the modules that are available in your car?

    If you are using a non genuine cable, you may only be able to scan for codes/faults .
    Also nongenuine cables and software are not discussed in this section as is for vcds licensed /lite users.

    DISis the lcd panel between the speedo and Tacho (rev counter) It gives info about car and warnings. Comes in 1/2 (top of panel is blacked out) and full size.
    I believe if you have half dis you cannot fit/use the stalk you have.

    No, you will need to buy a proper vcds cable to post your scans, or get a member nearby to help out. Then determine the actual dash u have and the one you need to replace it with.
