    License Status: Invalid/Unauthorized

    Hi,

    a friend of mine bought a VCDS cable from Germany(PCI-Tuning Karin Vetter) in 2007. The software is now telling him that the License is Invalid, but he can clear DTCs and see mass blocks, but when he is coding, it says its invalid and shuts off.

    What can we do here? Fix it?
    We have the papers for the VCDS and the 14-digit code on the cable(yellow).

    So a 12 year old cable that was never registered with Ross-Tech.

    Contact PCI to see if they can help you with this.

    I suggest you return it to Amazon, demand a refund, and file a complaint against the seller, 'cause what you've got there is an illegally pirated clone of our product.

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

    ... or from any of our authorized resellers:
