Hey sorry to hear of your ordeal. I am pretty surprised that you are not getting help as I have always got a reply or help from them. They even went to the extent of helping me through TeamViewer. My cable is working without any issue till date.

An option which you can try is to open the VCDS through the 'VCDS Loader' and not through the 'VCDS Release' icon.

It should be possible to configure the sensitivity or enable/disable RLS in VCDS coding for the BCM.

If the air flow is set for 'legs' then the middle air vents stop throwing air but side vents keep throwing the air in the VWs, check the air flow settings first.
It's set at correct setting despite no flow from centre vents.

Also, all the faults have time stamp with year 2016. Could be the clock in the car has a wrong date. What is the present Odo reading in your car?
It's not working after playing various settings with vcds, It's definitely hardware issue so have to visit service centre to get it rectified.
I just noticed that clock is not aligned with current timing, Odometer reading is about 57000.

Hi, just wanted to update a strange behaviour. MySkoda yeticonfirm turn signal was not working. It was doing once against the usual 3 or 5 blinks. I had earlier changed this to 5 a couple of years ago (aliexpress vcds). So today I thought something must have happened during service and let me change to 5 again. When I try changing the same, I was getting error channel 31 not available. At loss, not sure what to do, i went to "Light & Vision" in MFD and did a factory reset and voila it started working. In fact default was 5 blinks. Not sure what caused this but things are working again.

Hello Team,

I have been reading through all the posts about VCDS and the options available in the market.
I am looking to source the cable from EOBDTool or Aliexpress, but before I do, I am stuck in a dilemma regarding a potential issue.
I own Ameo (2016 1.2 MPI Comfortline) and all the posts related to Polo show that the scanner has readability for Polo.

Will the scanner work for Ameo? Are the scanners from 2017+ compatible with the specific Indian model of the car.

Furthermore, i would like to request senior bhpians in Mumbai with the scanners, if they are willing to let me have a go with their scanner to ensure the readability before I procure the same.
It would be a great help.
Please let me know your thoughts.

Hello,

I got a Tiguan couple of days back. It has speed alert chime when speed crosses 80. Didnít get a chance to take it to 120, but Iím sure there would be a continuous chime.

Is it possible to turn it off using VCDS and where can it be done in Gurgaon / DELHI.

Thanks,
Naman
