Hi, Ive used vcds on my audi tt and it all worked well. sold the car and i now have an 09 audi A4 executive s-line. The lead is recognized and all is ok but when i scan , i get a message saying it cant communicate with the dashboard cluster. I have also tried it on my friends seat leon with the exact same message displayed. I read another thread similar to my problem about checking if the force k-line is checked or not. It is not checked and is greyed out so i am unable to use it anyway. (should it be greyed out). I'm using the latest version of 12.12.3 on my registered and validated kll- usb cable. Thanks in advance

Your lead is a KII-USB -- it lacks CAN support required for newer cars. You'll need to do an upgrade.

Thanks Uwe for the response. My kII-USB cable is still like new. Oh well I suppose I will just have to upgrade if I want to keep on using it. Thanks again
