Software for Volkswagen and Tactrix OP2?

Postby Gregsy » Sat Mar 10, 2012 9:24 am

Hi all.

I have a Tactrix Openport 2 for my 2003 WRX, my girlfriend has a 2004 VW Polo 1.4. The engine warning light has come on and I was wondering if there is any software I could use with the OP2 to read the VW fault codes and if possible do a reset.

I wouldn't like to buy another cable if all I need is some software for basic fault code reading. I've had a hunt about the net but haven't found anything conclusive. Cheap cables are available on ebay from china but they are not gauranteed and quality might be dodgy.

Cheers

Any VAG diagnostic software that uses J2534 protocol should work with OP2 as a J2534 device, but I can't say for sure if they'll be happy with OP2's solution. Really though, it should be fine; J2534 is a standard protocol.
There are lots of low cost generic code readers/clearers around, check ebay.
