I'm in the market for a reader that can read both my '06 R and my '98 T5. I'm looking for something that can read anything that's in there to be read (i.e., not just emissions or some other subset of the whole kit and caboodle).<p>My present issue is an ABS / TRACS in the display of the T5; I assume it's the ABS module but would like to know for sure which codes are being thrown and the meaning of those codes.<p>Suggestions for a reader? Is VADIS required to discover the meaning of the codes?<p>Thanks!

Re: OBD II Readers (dradernh)

I use DigiMoto software for my laptop. It works ok, not the greatest but it works for getting the codes.<p>I'm 99% sure you need to have your ABS module rebuilt.<p>I used this guy with no problems at all:<br> <A HREF="http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/" TARGET="_blank">http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/</A><p>Good turnaround time and excellent work.

Re: OBD II Readers (dradernh)

I use the one from Actron. Its orange in color. I got it from AutoZone. I've used it on my 98 GLT many times but have not thrown a code on the R (thank God) to use it there yet. But if its OBD-II as well, why wouldn't it not work on the R?
