I've brought a obd vag com lead from ebay but I assume it work work because the pins need changing etc.. Can anyone tell me the correct pin layout?

Cheers

Is it a KKL type? What are you trying to diagnose? - if it's airbag or ABS there will be some 'bridging' required, otherwise it should communicate with the main ECU

Ah I've been getting confused. Basically I have the correct set up but still doesn't work so I'm thinking a break in the cable. Cheap stuff from china :tut:

Well I've even brought Alfa Diag.. It connects to the engine ecu but just will not connect to the airbag ecu no matter what

to connect to the airbag ecu you need to remove the cover from the main connector and solder a joining wire between pins 3 and 7 to be able to communicate with the airbag ECU

TRW and yes.. Tried just about everything to get it to connect even expensive diag equipment and it still wouldn't connect so starting to think something is wrong with the airbag ecu but that wouldn't make sense because it was ok until I just removed the seat :S
