Thanks Guys

Thanks Guys, I just had such a time searching the forums combined with a sketchy internet connection that I thought it might help others as well.

To All,
If there are other Important or Frequently Visited Links that I am not yet familiar with, please group them together and add them to this thread so we can try to keep this a Links Only thread as much as possible. :)

Third Party Vag-Com

I bought a cheap reader off of eBay and downloaded the free software off of Ross-Tech's website and am going to try my hand at diagnosing this cooling system malfunction code (2181).

I thought replacing the non-functioning fan was going to solve the problem. Maybe it reset or maybe disconnecting the battery didn't clear it properly.

Vag-Com

Now I'm thinkin' I should buy a VAG-Com BEFORE i buy my Beetle ... so I can pull the codes BEFORE i buy. Anyone else do this? Thanks, George!

Right now I'm thinking a $349 Enthusiast model.

I just got my vag-com (now called VCDS) in the mail yesterday, and lucky for you I'm in Tomball, TX. I'm waiting on a Bentley manual for 1998-2010 New beetles which should be here before Friday. PM me.

Cheap working cable and VAG-COM

Hello all,

Wasn't sure where to post this, but thought I'd let everyone know that this cable/software bundle worked fantastic for me.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002WIN8VQ/ref=cm_cr_mts_prod_img

This is CONFIRMED working to read/erase codes on a 99 Beetle, using an old laptop running XP service pack 3.

As any google search will tell you, DO NOT attempt to hook this cable or any other cable up to a VW that has an aftermarket radio, without testing the DLC (data link connector) with a volt meter FIRST. High probability you'll fry the scanner/cable.

Plenty of info about this at http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/aftermarket-radio.html.

Also, in order to use this cable, you must have some knowledge as to how to assign COM ports on your computer. The cable and VAG-COM will ONLY work together if the PC reads the cable from COM 1, COM 2, COM 3, OR COM 4....AND VAG-COM is set to look at the matching port for the cable.

Again, I haven't been able to try any other functions with the included VAG-COM 409.1 software, but I was successful in reading ABS/AIRBAG/ENGINE codes and deleting them with everything included in that link.

Hope this helps someone else out.

I removed the sticky due to most of the links being dead. A new post has been created and made sticky.
