    Electronic Parking Brake - VCDS not working ?!

    Hi,

    What I'm trying to do:-

    - I’m trying to release the Electric Parking Brake on my 2014 VW Golf (need to change rear brake discs)
    - I have followed the Wiki instructions – however these don’t work - link pasted for reference(http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...)_ABS_Brakes)? .

    - I need some help to resolve please!

    Issue faced:-

    - My “Basic Settings – 04” on the ABS option is greyed out, so I cannot complete what is shown in the instructions

    What I'm using :-

    - Latest VCDS version (19.x.x) version and then tried an older one (see the screenshot) - but no difference.
    - I'm also using what I believe is a genuine Ross Tech Hex + CAN cable (labelled HEX+CAN Dual-K & CAN <-> USB. Interface for VCDS. Rev.B. [url]www.ross-tech.com)...or at least one that looks like it




    Autoscan Results :-


    I have run autoscan and the results are below – alongside this the below shows the screen suggesting some elements are missing? Please can someone help?



    Code:
    Removed.  Data from a clone/pirate copy of VCDS is not acceptable here.

    Why don’t you just release the parking brake from the button inside? There’s no black art VCDS will bring to this. You’ll still need the twistable piston tool to push the piston inside.

    Not doing this electronically destroys the electronic parking brake - you have to retract the electronic parking brake first and then use a piston tool to make space for the brake pads etc. Google explains why if it helps.

    Your interface should have a serial number on it; in the format HC-XXXXXX. What is it please?

    Hi, I cannot see any serial number on it - please see picture? Purchased from ebay and was marked as "genuine"...

    I'm afraid you've purchased a clone/pirated interface. My advice is to contact the seller and obtain a refund.

    Will do - dodgy eBay seller aside - does anybody know what is wrong (as surely if the module can be read then I should be able to access basic settings...feels like a VCDS issue?

    By the nature that your version of VCDS is hacked, the very best results you can hope for will be unpredictable.

    I downloaded the updates software from the Ross tech site - so assume the software is genuine?

    ...but your interface isn't - and the licence for the software is stored in and verified from the interface.

    Please have a look here for where to obtain a genuine one, then we may help you.
