    Hello
    i have a 2007 Audi A3 2.0


    I want to reset my oil light and check a engine code.


    Im use to using basic stand alone obd readers but Audi i found out has its own system.


    I got a Vag can cable from ebay 5.5 and pin beta 3.9 written on it.

    I got software 5.5 Vag Commander

    - installed the drivers - cable shows up as usb serial port com 3




    when I go to use the software it says

    Target device not found!

    - drivers appear okay and have tried different drivers and all install fine.


    -I tried vag command 1.4 , 3.0 , 5.0


    target device not found error


    Any ideas what Im doing wrong?

    Thanks
    Greg

    Avoid those tools.
    You need VCDS ideally, and its available in various 'lite ' to full blown diagnostic versions. Site sponsor NHN sells them.
    Where are you located maybe somebody local with this tool could help you out?
