I just ordered version 15.7 of VAGCOM original VCDS ross-tech software (not a china rip off cable). Im going to use mainly for my 2013 Audi A4 3.0t and also some limited diagnostics on the Cayenne as the 2003-2006 share a lot of modules with the Toureq.

Has anyone had any experience good or bad from using VCDS on their Cayenne?

Some mixed posts on other sites bashing VCDS and some scare mongering too (like it will kill your "VW part number" module! somehow I don't think so), but also a few posts about it being more capable than Durametric in some cayenne modes (he had a Turbo S 2006), so im hoping my cayenne turbo 2006 with E81 power kit will also be compliant with the VCDS to an extent.

Once the VCDS comes first thing is to find this pesky stutter hesitation issue I have still.

I'll report back some logs and data .................... unless it fries my module then I'll close the post quietly :)

No bad experiences, just good. If you use it and have Durametric you will find it is much better than Durametric as far as reading and resetting faults. Just to be safe I wouldn't recommend using it for any re-coding although I think a few have. There is some info over on Rennlist for others that have used it. I have done the search all modules as well as individual modules features as well as selecting a comparable year of Touareg since most of the modules are the same.

I'm glad you confirmed my logic. I've even got a V-checker PRO and that pulls codes and shows measuring blocks data and erases codes so as this is based on a very crude Vag com setup I was fairly confident vcds would work a lot better. I'm still puzzled why durametric is viewed as the only tool for the enthusiast.

Simple: The Cayenne is the only Porsche model that uses VW  based control technology, none of the other models do this.  Find a 996 and try Ross-Tech system and you will see why even Ross-Tech recommends the Durametric system for Porsches.

Understood thank you for replying.

So when I got a bit less hair and a few more bucks to buy 911 turbo weekender I should definitely spring for a durametric as well. :)

I don't suppose anybody has any experience of coding a voltage sensitive comfort module that seemingly likes to pop dash warnings for rear tail light fault, no horn beep when locking/unlocking and recently doesn't want to let me refuel either.

Hello I'm using the vcds on the cayenne but having difficulty identifying the measuring block group number as I don't get a description as no label file for cayenne, do you have a label file or do you know the important group numbers ie 002 is AC compressor status and the maf sensor is easy but the other are difficult and so many "knock" and "count" have no idea what they are showing value of. The Ross tech list of gasoline vehicle groups don't really relate to the cayenne at all. 

Any help please and do you know about coding the comfort module or got any other tips or websites maybe to share? 

 

Much Appreciated

      Hey guys,
       
      So I'm having this issue that is driving me crazy. My SAI (Secondary AIr Injection) and Oxygen Sensor are not reaching "Ready Status"

      A little background about my car. 
      2006 Boxster S 3.2L
      FVD Exhaust system
      GMS Headers with 200 cell cats - has all 4 O2 sensors attached.
      996 throttle body and distribution hose
      ECU Tuning Group tune
       
      I had the car up in BC Canada since 2009 (although it is a US car) and had no problems passing the sniffer and obdII tests - both before and after all the mods except for the ECU tune. 
       
      I went to get my emissions testing done last week in Texas and failed due to the 2 systems being in not-ready status. I figured it might have to do with the cat delete ( ROW) configured in the tune. I sent my ECU back to ETG in California and had them re-flash my ECU in order to re-enable the O2 sensors. 
      I cleared all codes and figured I would start fresh. I drove the car about 120 miles and attempted to follow the drive cycle mentioned in the forums but it was really tough with the roads out here. Everything is in ready status except for the SAI, and the O2 sensor. I can manually start the SAI using the Durametric system so I would believe the pump is not bad; however, I'm not
      sure that I"m hearing the SAI start up when I cold start the engine.
       
      For testing purposes I unplugged my O2 sensors from both bank1 and  bank2 and they both threw fault codes which confirms that the ECU tune re-activated my sensors. 
       
      I've uploaded a few pictures with the results from a OBDII app as well as the Durametric Software to my Google Drive. I'm not quite sure how to interpret the Durametric Voltage results - especially the negative 50 V and -127V - seems quite odd.

      Any help or guidance will be appreciated as I'm out of ideas.  
       
      Thanks,
      Joel

      I signed up for Metromile car insurance (which charges by the mile and uses a GPS tracker that plugs into the OBD2 port). This is great BTW if you don't drive a lot or on a daily basis like me and is saving me at least 50% over regular insurance.
       
      The device wouldn't work and it turns out that I no longer have power at the OBD2 port on my 2005 997.1 C2S. It worked fine a few months ago when I last plugged in my engine management interface which also stopped working. I checked the fuse (F1 in Row B) and it looks fine.
       
      Any ideas on similar experiences and things to check/resolve this would be greatly appreciated.
