VCDS on non VAG cars ?


Registered User
Hi guys,

So i recently bought a VCDS and am awaiting delivery but in the meanwhile, I've been thinking of all the things i could use it for.

My question is am i able to use it on non-vag cars for like reading codes and clearing codes, for example removing airbag light.

Obviously i get you won't be able to code non-vag cars but surely it should / can still behave like a regular ob2 interface since it is utilising the port?

Car in question is a Corsa life.

I plugged it into my 2018 Movano and it couldn't connect to anything. Might be because it's basically a Renault and doesn't like French cars.
