    Does Ross-tech make a Toyota VCI cable? Dont flame me ;)

    My VW rigs are happy motoring along with awesome tweaks via my ross tech cable... So I picked up a Toyota Hybrid Highlander at a Bargen as the previous owner couldn't fix the brakes..... what a mess, looks like I need a Toyota cable to energize each wheel to bleed the brakes on this thing, as the pedal only gives a fake sensation to the driver with no hydraulic pressure traveling to the wheels- does ross-tech make one and if not what do Toyota owners use? I read a lot about Mini VCI but know nothing about the many manufactures. Thanks, Joe

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    All that said, VCDS does have generic OBDII mode that one can use for emission related systems. We do not test on Toyotas or any other brand vehicle. We assume that meeting the OBDII spec for VAG also meets the spec for these others. Any car after 2008 should be using CAN for OBDII and VCDS should speak to that car. However, do not ask us to support other brands for we will not know how to do so as we are not the least bit proficient with those. As Uwe wrote, we focus on VAG.
