I have had both rear ABS sensors replaced on my Passat and it is not rare for the abs sensor to conk out. Many car owners have experienced the same.

Good luck !
Will try doing this one more time as suggested. Thank you!

Never heard of this one. I am using one my self without any issues.
The cable will only do what you tell it to. Doesnt matter whether it is original or fake.

Thanks

Just bought a Skoda Rapid TDI AT, and thinking of buying a VCDS cable from aliexpress.
Can see that there are primarily two models available, the 12.12 version and the 15.7 version.
Can someone tell me if there are any major features that are only available on the 15.7?

Get the 15.7 version please, You would be able to access a lot more compared to a 12.12 version, Ask the seller to check the cable before he sends though.

What is the exact version of your cable? I think you should get the exact version of software. If the cable is 12.12, then you have to get 12.12 version.
