    Unable to log into the module (46) !!

    Today I've been trying to activate the auto locking and lock/unlock beeps on my 2004 a3, However, I have been unable to log into the module (46) and hence make any adaptations.
    the only modules i can access are 1 & 2 engine & gearbox

    on my 99 golf i can access all the modules so it must be something to do with something

    i feel spending more cash on something is gonna sort this out lol

    Your 2004 A3 does the diagnostics on the CAN bus. Do you have a CAN compatible interface?

    Uh Bruce, chat with Seb as I reported yesterday as did Stu of an issue with 46 & it would appear to be with older convenience modules fella, might not be related but damn coincidence I found & a friend who has same car as me & now this person who from all accounts looks like an 03-04 8P which has the same 8P0959433 convenience module

    Fella can you login at all to 46 & is it just long coding you're having issues with? Whats your convenience part number at top?

    I'm not sure it's a fake cable but just one of the old style ones with the limitation of v4.09. Often termed the dumb interface and not CAN capable.

    IMHO if its not bought from ross-tech directly then I consider it fake, but thats just my thoughts, but as this is a global issue not just you but genuine users like myself & friends then I'm happy to be involved, but I suggest a genuine can based version as per Stu said & I have a group buy going, no its not a sales pitch as I make nothing on them honestly but just fedup with users of copied cables moaning about problems(present issue excluded possibly, but Stu knows my gripe) & they are usually down to the crap cable they got for a pound, lol, but lets see what Seb@ross come up with, I'm happy to help but I also respect Ross-tech for a fantastic tool for our cars that they spend serious time on providing & updates are free plus support is very good tbh & also free

    Sorry I should also add that I don't think it's a genuine Ross-Tech cable, probably an eBay special used with the v4.09 I mentioned above - Is that right RGC?

    It's not really to do with the pins, maybe this will help -

    Thanks for nothing, I did you a favour by mentioning to bruce already about my reported issues & I've already been in contact with Seb about this issue anyway as has Stu, so dont tell me I dont do nothing for you, if you as alot of others can afford a 10k car then you can afford a proper cable, same excuse I hear day in day our from everyone, fill up your tank for 50 a go but when it comes to a tool that is the best thing for your car you scrimp on crap cables then winge it doesnt work properly on here!!!

    I help people that help themselves & I'm fedup with the same old tune, I'm trying to help you, so if you want my help fine, if not then good luck with fake cable, I'm doing these people a favour as I make feck all of the cables just trying to help people realise if they buy genuine they will have a lot easier life.

    As I said above, either the MicroCAN or Hex + CAN will work with your car.

    I can appreciate that funds are tight but perhaps I could offer a word of advice - Most UK authorised sellers still have stock purchased when the $/ was better, when they have to re-order they are going to get a kick in the nuts so if you could afford it sooner you may well find yourself saving a packet.
