    Hey guys just a simple quick question. I have just brought vag tacho from ebay.
    Unfortunitly the cd that came in the mail is damaged. I downloaded the software version 1.9 online but i despiratrely need the drivers for 1.9
    If anyone has vag tacho drivers for 1.9 and is willing to share them with me it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    hi mate, i have the cable drivers for the vagtacho cable, if you give me your email address i will send them. they work with vagtacho 1.5 so i guess they will work with 1.9. there in a .rar file so u will need winrar to open it. p.s where did you download the 1.9 software n was it free? wouldnt mind upgrading mine to 1.9!

    Vag tacho 1.9 can be downloaded from vag tacho's web site.
    I too have 1.5 drivers ........ unfortunitly they are different.

    So if anyone has 1.9 drivers we both could do with them
    thanks

    I used to have Vagtacho working on my old HP laptop, but I'm really struggling to reinstall it onto my new laptop. I have tried three laptops now (Dell Latitude D620, Sony Vaio VGN-A517S and an old Dell Latitude LS) and I just can't get the drivers working. I believe it's version 1.5 I should be using but I can't install the drivers.

    I'm actually a computer engineer and I'm annoyed I couldn't get to the bottom of this myself, does anyone have any ideas?

    hi,

    I have downloaded the software from tek-tronick.co.uk

    I have a VAG.COM cable, will this work with the VAG.TACHO software, or do i need a different cable?

    Any help appreciated !

    It's use is to download and upload the dashboard EEPROM via the OBD port. It has various functions one of which is to change the dashboard functionality on Mk4 Golfs and Boras (you can change the needle/gauge illumination and add miles to next fillup etc) and another one is to change the displayed odometer reading.

    I'm pretty sure it won't work with a Vag-Com lead if it's an official Ross-Tech one, but if it's a third party/ebay job it might work.

    Well i bought a Vag Tacho cable.

    I have a 2002 S3, but i cannot get it to work properly.

    When i select " connect any ECU" i get -
    [​IMG]

    So i tried connecting to "VDO new", but it said not found, eventually after a few it connected to Audi Immo Box.

    [​IMG]


    When in the above screen i then click " get pin", but i then get a message saying, Error,or access denied.

    Iam using version 1.5.

    Any ideas please? am i connected to the correct ECU? i thought i saw somewhere that the A3 upto 2002 used the "Magnetti Marelli M73".

    Cheers guys.

    Vagtacho 1.5 only works with A3/S3's up to 2000. New VDO dashes implement a checksum check. You need vagdashcom, but it's pricey, 500€.

    How much was your cable? Cheapest I've found was £40, which is a lot of money compared to vag-com. Or does the vag-tach cable double up as vag-com too?

    you can get serial cables that double as a vag com and vag tacho lead. but like you say they are bout 40 to 50 quid.

    they are a good bit of kit tho. get a few ppls skc codes for them and it pays for its self.:icon_thumright:

    Is this true that Vag tacho only works on car up to 2000 year? I brought from this site: http://www.vagproducts.co.uk/vagtacho.html after finding a reccomendation on this forum. I have a 2001 audi s3 and the website says it works on car up untill 2002 but I can't get it to fully connect to my ECU?

    Any help please?

    Thanks
