    esp light constantly on, vagcom not working

    I am attempting to read modules on an Audi A3 2004 using above combination. I can read only the engine module but no other module.
    The ESP light is staying on continuously and I suspect it was caused by a dead battery. Also I need to reset the service light.
    Can someone advise me on what I am doing wrong. Since this software is shareware with no limitations, I thought it should read all available modules.
    I bought the lead on eBay and downloaded and installed the 409-1S software.
    hope u can help

    It still has its limitations as you haven't bought the license. Although I am surprised it won't let you at least connect.

    The first problem is definately the cable though. You get what you pay for I am afraid.

    Where abouts are you? I could plug in for you if you are close.

    I would reccomend using Ross-Tech's site and getting it from the states. I did, they Fed-Ex it and mine was in my sweaty palm in 1 1/2 days! I did get charged for import duty but as the $ is so weak against the , it was a really good deal for me. Not sure what its like against the Euro though.

    Gendan would be just as good I would assume. Same product at the end of the day. Its really worth the money mate! Good luck!

    I would get the Hex-USB+CAN. Your car has CAN-BUS communication for all of its controllers so it has to have CAN capabilities.

    An '06 A3 is fully supported by our enthusiast CAN interface called the Micro-CAN. It sells for $249 USD. The Queen's duties and taxes are on you - 17% if I remember correctly and shipping is about $45 USD these days. We ship daily to the UK or you could contact one of our distributors.
