View Full Version : Still cant get OBDII port to communicate!!!

For those who've read my first thread thread you know that im having issues getting VAG or a code reader to connect to my car. From everyones advice i went to Ross techs website ( http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/aftermarket-radio.html )and i thought my fix was close. I tested the voltage between pin 4 and 7, sure enough it was 12v so i was positive it was my K line. Disconnected the K wire from the harness. as shown in the diagram below and thought that would fix it. Unfortunately it didnt. Im still reading 11.70 volt between pins 4 and 7. and i still CANT connect to my car. I have a CEL and running limp but no clue why.


PS, someone also suggested disconnecting my ABS module and see if that would do anything, unfortunately it didnt. Anyone? please!

i took off the wire as shown in the diagram. My wire was green/black can any one confirm this?

anything helps. i disconnected my k wire. and when i volt test pin 4 (ground) and 7 (k wire) it still shows 12v!! i need to be able to run VAG so i can scan my codes and check why i a CEL just popped up, LIMP mode sucks
