VCDs-Lite Cable advice
« on: October 13, 2018, 07:29:21 PM »

My car is engine code BVK, 58 plate VW Sharan 1.9 Tdi.
Do I need to buy the expensive diagnostics cable or anyone which is around £ 12 for ebay et al?

Some sellers on Ebay said that I have CANBUS and the cheaper cables will not work for me?


Thanks again

Oops, yes didn't notice your year, the cheap  lead will not work with your car. So check coolant pipes for circulation before going further.
