How do I Register/Activate my VAG-COM software?

8

1 How do I Register/Activate my VAG-COM software?

All of our Current Interfaces have Activation built-in, so VAG-COM should always be Fully Activated once it has been tested on a car. If you have an older Interface without built-in Activation, or have purchased an Interface somewhere other than Ross-Tech, click here for Activation instructions.

2 What’s the difference between the Shareware version and the fully registered version?

All of our Current Interfaces have Activation built-in, so VAG Diagnostic Tool will always be Fully Registered/Activated. If you have an older Interface without built-in Activation, or have purchased an Interface somewhere other than Ross-Tech, VAG-COM will operate in Shareware mode until it is Activated. The differences between Shareware and fully registered/activated versions are listed near the bottom of each function page in the Online Demo / Manual and in the VAG-COM Function Chart.

3 Is Product Support included in the price?

Absolutely. If you have a question or problem, please post it to the VAGCOM 18.2 mailing list, mail it to us directly, or give us a call. However, please understand that we don’t know everything about every VW/Audi/SEAT/Skoda ever made.

Retrofitting Adaptive Cruise Control to 8V RS3

Questiones:

I am now planning to keep this car until its four year warranty expires in May 2020. In which case I shall, if possible, fit ACC.

This is meant to be a simple procedure providing the car is fitted with the right instrument cluster and CAN gateway. (Kufatec tell me this anyway… apparantly it is wiring in the radar and some reprogramming…)

Kufatec want to know, from diagnostics, what the part numbers are for these items as fitted to the car from diagnostics and not the parts catalogue. My VCDS know-how is pretty basic, so can anyone help me locate where I can find the CAN gateway part number please? I might be ok with the instrument cluster, but this too would help!

 

Answer:

Go into VAGCOM 18.2 select 19 can Gateway

You’ll see something like this

Part number SW version etc
