    Buy a vcds cable, they are pricey, the software is upgradeable free of charge and they are a worthwhile investment. If interested in buying
    user Nigel (NHN) on here supplies.

    I bought a cheap one on eBay that just reads and clears codes that works. Obviously I wish I had the full VCDS but it cleared my airbag light. It only came on when I moved the seat all the way back to clean the car. The connection under the seat had opened slightly.
