Hi all
Bought vag tacho lead and i cant get it to connect
Followed selkers advice to the extent of even uninstalling my antivirus
Computer recognises usb device when i plug it in and get a green light on the car plug but just get the message kline interface not found
I have downloaded software as well as using incuded disk
Any ideas?
Or is there anyone in N Kent area with a working copy that would be willing to plug my car in just so i can see if its the car or lead

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave

I don't have Vag-Tacho and have never used it but sounds like the same problems as when VCDS lite port settings don't match, have you looked in device manager to check if your using the same port as Vag-Tacho.
