Where did you buy the unit? If you have a "short" serial number, (it starts with HC), please post here or photo interface.

Hello
I think as that is a UDS module for that module you will need a Hex-V2 or Hex-net. The Hex-USB-CAN which you have is too old.

If your interface is genuine you can trade it in here https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/rethex/ .

I hope this helps

That ECU is probably in a MK6 Golf or similar so should be fine on a HEX-CAN USB.

I suspect the problem is their interface isn't genuine :facepalm: Guess we'll find out when Uwe pops by :popcorn:

Ah right, I just saw UDS and wondered if it could be the problem but I did certainly suspect the other reason...

It looks like you are referring to buttons, not icons. Buttons are inactive if a module doesn't support that function, or if VCDS can't load data to support that function.

In the module you posted a screen-shot from, I expect you would have more active buttons if you were using a legitimate interface.

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#fr

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