    Can i use a Op-com cable on my audi to identify faults using the VCDs software?

    Would that work, i probably need to install the driver for the cable ..?

    "This cable can not work if your car uses a protocol/bussystem like VPW, PWM or CAN-bus"

    I'm not a fan of ebay copies really. I'd buy an original cable, it will recoup its cost in no time.

    Send a PM to user NHN if you're serious about getting one.

    One of the seat forums had a group buy at around 100 quid.
    I got lucky and got one for 150.
    but they do pop up cheap.

    As James rightly says they pay for them selves in no time.

    P.s Welcome from the world of Vauxhall
