    VCDS timestamp for fault codes?

    Maybe a silly question but is it possible to find timestamps for old fault codes?

    Only if the module in question knows the correct date & time. VCDS will automatically retrieve that and present it in the fault detail.

    Hi and thanks for that. I mean is there any way to get old codes from history, or is it impossible cause someone has cleared them already??

    If a fault code has been cleared, it (and the associated freeze-frame data such as the date/time stamp) are gone.
