Q:Can VAS 5054A disable immobilizer like EC tools?
A:No, it can’t disable immobilizer; our 5054A only support reset every electronic control system in the car.
Q:Over the last couple weeks the car’s been giving me some trouble starting up. It starts, revs to 1200 briefly and then cuts out. My initial thought was it just had to Do with the cold weather lately and remedied I by just holding the key a bit longer in the on position. Today though, I had to actually give it a significant amount of throttle to keep from cutting out when starting. Then it died at two intersections. It starts up fine again, but I’m stumped as to what the issue might be. My initial thought is the fuel pump. Anything else it could be?
A:VW / Audi / Skoda … blink codes, trouble codes (VAG), fault codes (Ross), tomato, potato. All I can tell you is the Master Tech who does side jobs on my cars uses a 5054A ODIS V3.0.1. With the right cables / software it pulled the trouble codes for the ABS in my ’90 Corrado to condemn it. It’s been a long time since I actually counted those blinks to diagnose. The point is it’s all the same info whether it blinks a led or displayed as text with graphics on a screen (my preference).
Q:I found this VAS 5054a software and bluetooth can obd2 interface. Is this a ligit vas program? and will it do the same or more as the ross tech software?
A:Now if you use 5054 you can get the automated diagnosis on any fault code more than Ross tech can support! And it is cheaper than Ross tech and easy to update too.
Q:Light stays on and vcds will NOT clear it? I used Win XP when I installed Vagcom 11.11. Ａny idea?
A:You would need VAS-PC and a 5054a Head to enter into in the basic setting / adaption of the module which I’m guessing you don’t have. That’s what the dealer will do though.
Q:I got my tester with Best obd2 scanner VAS 5054A ODIS and this is what I found when i tested the car:
P1626 Databus Drivetrain Missing message from trans ctrl mod.They are no errors in the transmission control module, only in both ECU’s. How to fix?
A: it’s a static message, ie it is not currently fault-free. There will be more information available from a paid-for VCDS scanner cable together with a laptop, if that’s an option for you. This is because a regular OBD-II scanner only reports emissions information and not the car computers’ diagnostics information, such as open circuit wires.
Q:I have the latest Vag Com and Ｉhave VAS 5054A．I disconnected the speedo for a short while and when i put it back it triggered the immobilizer and the car will not run now for more than a few seconds. It seems the speedo lost its link to the keys and they need to be rematched. I do not want to take it to Audi. I have taken a full dump of the eeprom (G93LC86C) but would need to know which addresses are the 4 digit PIN. Does anyone know how to obtain this – either by finding it in the eeprom dump or using some piece of software or hardware, or can i get it from a login to GeKo?
Ａ:Pull out your radio (takes 10 minutes), write down the s/n#, and ask the service manager really nicely, and they should give you your code for free.
