Hello,

I bought an official cable from ebay. i have been trying to use it to have the windows of my 2011 Jetta go up when locking the car. I followed a tutorial on Youtube and the program accepts my coding but nothing happens when I try locking the car (holding and pressing). The cable keeps changing between red and green for the whole duration of it being plugged in. I have included some pictures to give more info.

Here are the pictures: https://imgur.com/a/By2xs5L

[b]Removed.  Data from a clone/pirate copy of VCDS is not welcome here.[/b]

Based on ASAM data, I could guess that your cable officially isn't genuine.

On Ebay, it's more likely you end up with 'Genuine' stuff than actual Genuine stuff.

Uhm, no, you didn't. If it was described as "genuine" and your purchase was recent, I suggest raising bloody hell with eBay and the seller.

For now, I have to tell you:

Getting help in this forum requires the use of a legitimate VCDS system.

They are available directly from us:
https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/cat/VCDS

... Or from any of our authorized resellers:
http://www.ross-tech.com/distributors.php#ca

Let us know if/when you get one and we'll adjust your forum status.

-Uwe-
