my cousin just bought a VAG for his repair shop... there's a bunch of issues i'd like to check out on my car but I don't know where to start. how does it work? do I just get them to hook it up to my car and run it? or do you actually have to test for certain things in a certain way? I need a quick crash course on this thing - thanks

best thing to do is play with it.

you have to "test" for your ecu first so vag can recognize it. make sure you have the right com settings etc. then you can scan codes and such

thats what i mean. when you say scan codes, do i need to know the codes im scanning for? or do u mean it can jus scan and it shows me the codes that come up?

you just scan for engine codes and they come up.
