NOW im thinking this is related to my other problem with the ciggy socket?

well i have an airbag light up on the dash,great i bought a genuine lead etc.NOPE.

needed an update to the latest update,dont work not picking up the usb.

so gone back to the old version.

but for some strange reason its not talking to a lot of the controllers,either code 1100 comes up
or 1010,cant communicate with the airbag module at all.

as said im thinking it is linked,but if not anyone give me a heads up on vag plz.

If it doesn't work on the latest version I'd suspect its not really a genuine vcds cable - I've got one that came off ebay thats the same, it only works with the software sent with it. I'd suspect your issue is the controller isn't working, most likely a lack of power going to it. Given other ones don't work it might help to list which ones do and don't work, as most likely there is 1 fault causing the problem which may be able to be narrowed down from knowing what doesn't work.

The free version of vcds should be able to speak to the airbags and clear codes - at least it can on the Galaxy without issue, so would expect that to be across the range really.

thanks guys,no it is a genuine cable hex can usb jobbie and its registered with them.
i know it works as i bought the airbag light up before when i changed my stereo,but since i blew the ciggie lighter fuse(found and replaced)it has been able to talk to the air bag controller,
i do susspect maybe i may have distured other wires ???? hence why its not talking now,but i have also read that the controllers can fail?

It may be because you replaced the stereo;
It never used to work on older Audi/VWs when they were changed either!

If i remember rightly disconnecting the stereo should allow it to work if thats the case, something to do with the k-line being on the wrong pin on the stereo plug vs the standard?

mmm i will give that a go,but when i fiited it,it did work as this was the stereo i fitted then turn the ignition on with the fascia off and passenger air bag switch not attatched hence why the light came on.reset using the vcds lead and no more problems until i blew the ciggie fuse and messed around with the wiring.
