• VCDS - Diagnosing an ABS fault using a Ross-Tech HEX-NET, VCDS Mobile and a Smart phone

    Here's a short video I took while diagnosing an ABS issue on a SEAT Altea. It shows how to connect to the HEX-NET in AP mode, and open VCDS Mobile on a SmartPhone. Next, I read and describe the fault codes and view the live data to determine the fault.


    After replacing the faulty ABS wheel speed sensor, I re-read the codes and clear them, and then check the live data to make sure everything is OK





  • VCDS Help. Setting up HEX-NET WiFi


    Here's a short video by Ross-Tech that shows how to set-up the WiFi on a new Ross-Tech HEX-NET interface. You'll need to know the name of your WiFi network and its password


    It only takes a couple of minutes to do and once you've added the HEX-NET to your WiFi, you can use it via the normal USB cable, or over WiFi by opening the VCDS options page and choosing NET in the "Select Port" (you must add the HEX-NET to your WiFi (see video guide above) before the changing VCDS to WiFi otherwise it will not be found)
