    Hi, dont laugh if this is a stupid question but i know nothing about this stuff at all.....

    My mate has vag-com, connection cable and laptop and uses the software on his 2001 Audi TT.
    Would he be able to plug this into my 2006 A3 S-line 2.0 TDI to make some changes to my car.
    I want to get the car to beep when you use the key fob to lock/unlock the car. Have heard this can be done but you need vag-com to do it.

    Does this make any sense or am i asking a stupid question ?

    Cheers in advance.....

    It depends on what cable he has. A 2001 TT only requires K-Line diagnostics where-as your A3 will require Canbus diagnostics (different protocols).

    Ask him to check what cable he has and post it here for further advice.

    Regards,

    Paul

    I think that cable is an aftermarket cable that does not support the CAN diagnostics. To work on your car, you would need a HEX series interface or a Micro-CAN interface from Ross-Tech. There are no aftermarket cables that are compatible with VAG-COM and that have CAN diagnostic capability.
