If you own a Volkswagen, Audi, Seat or Skoda car and want to perform diagnostics on it, you may be interested in VCDS diagnostic software. VCDS stands for VAG-COM Diagnostic System, and it is a software package for Windows that emulates the functions of the dealers' very expensive proprietary scan tools[^1^]. In this article, we will show you how to download and use VCDS to diagnose and troubleshoot your car.
What is VCDS?
VCDS is a software package that allows you to connect your PC to your car via an interface-adapter and access various modules and systems of your car. You can read and clear fault codes, view live data, perform output tests, adapt settings, code modules, and more[^1^]. VCDS can perform most of the functions that the dealers' tools can, and in some cases even more[^2^]. VCDS is compatible with all VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda passenger cars through the current model year[^1^].
How to Download VCDS?
To download VCDS, you need to visit the official website of Ross-Tech, the company that develops and sells VCDS. There you can find the latest version of VCDS, as well as manuals, updates, support, and other information. The download link is https://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/[^1^]. You can choose between two versions of VCDS: full version and lite version. The full version requires a licensed interface-adapter from Ross-Tech or an authorized reseller, while the lite version works with some third-party interfaces but has limited functionality[^3^]. The full version costs $249 USD or more depending on the interface-adapter you choose[^1^], while the lite version costs $99 USD for activation[^3^].
How to Use VCDS?
To use VCDS, you need to install it on your PC and connect it to your car via an interface-adapter. The installation process is simple and straightforward, and you can follow the instructions on the website or in the manual. Once installed, you can launch VCDS from your desktop or start menu. You will see a main screen with various options and buttons. You can select your car model from the drop-down menu or use the Auto-Scan function to scan all the modules in your car. You can then access each module individually and view its information, fault codes, measuring values, output tests, adaptations, coding, etc. You can also use other features such as service reminder reset, readiness monitor check, acceleration measurement, optical bus diagnostics, etc[^2^].
