    General Corona Virus Discussion

    "Biden said, "We’re going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers." Yes, that's an exact quote taken from the official transcript. If that's not a clear admission that these vaccines don't protect the vaccinated, I don't know what is." Is it too simple to say that the above...

    What can I do here?

    I need the same exact sequence (MQB platform). VCDS is not recognized if the sequence is altered. I thought the problem might be in the connections themselves at first and wasted time. It's funny that this procedure is not given in the Manual (or I couldn't find it). It may seem obvious to the...

    Bleeding ABS with Ross-Tech

    Don't know if this would help with your particular need but I have found that hard application on a thoroughly wet road will activate ABS, particularly on a slope. Car is quattro. I was asking for advice how to test ABS but got no responses.

    Just another VAG nut with anti-social coding complex

    I have a convenient and safe hill (~ 8%) near home which sees my occasional Italian tuneups (just to confirm engine OK on full demand). Subjectively delaying flooring the gas just a few 100s rpm until about 1700 rpm after an immediate sharp turn (? 1300rpm) seems smoother and not slower. But...

    Vehicle Diagnostic Protection SFD

    However, a goodly number of enthusiasts buy it to do actual diagnostics, i.e. read fault codes, look at measuring values, etc, and that is functionality that isn't blocked by SFD I wish that this were in fact true but it is hard to know accurately. My main use of the tool is to forestall trouble...

    2013 Golf 1.4TSI P334B

    Could it possibly be something as silly as not having the gearbox in P?

    Ha ha! Things must be "smooth" for Bernie's law to work reasonably well.

    Coal Cracker Good to hear that there are no hard feelings and I wish you the best. I certainly could have chosen more diplomatic words but then we would have missed the excitement.:)

    Measuring Values window launched from Basic Settings lacks Group UDS options

    I had similar problem which was compounded by my belief that it was my fault as I was a completely new to VCDS. Workaround as you say. When I replaced the laptop by current DELL model the "problem" largely went away.

    I'm sorry if I bruised your feelings. That was not my intent as I said before. The criticism is about a particular post and not about you. I did not call names or imply anything more than that if your post was careless how to think about other advice you may offer. Truce?

    My post was a criticism of the way the message was presented not an attack on the person. My purpose was to promote clear communication b/c I browse through the posts and find many helpful if I can comprehend. Your interpretation of the post is a very big stretch. How exactly should the pulling...

    I do not consider my comment to be an attack rather encouragement to take a little more care. I could not understand vwtech's comment. What is the gist of his post?
