VCDS Tutorial ~ How to Use VCDS Scan Tool
Today we have a VCDS Tutorial. I will walk you through the basics of using VCDS scan tool, including coding, fault codes, MVB, Basic settings, adaptation, Graphing, and more. If you are a VW or Audi tech, or DIY repairs on a VW/Audi you need to watch this video. This is a basic VCDS tutorial covering how to use the scan tool. I have been using VCDS or VAG-COM for almost 15 years. I even had Santos from Ross-Tech look up my purchase from way back in 2015. This video is all about the basics of using VCDS.

Charles I appreciate you making this video. I own a shop in Raleigh NC and this information helped me pull the trigger on the VCDS Pro kit. I’ve been wanting to help my customers more (and learn more) by being able to offer coding on modules oppose to taking the vehicle to the dealership when the work was completed. If you need help with something don’t hesitate to reach out.
