  • The VD500 OBD2 scanner is specifically designed to diagnose Volkswagen Group (VW/Audi/Skoda/ SEAT) 12-volt 16-pin vehicles, but can also be used with other 12-volt (non-Volkswagen) and light trucks (non-electric) vehicles manufactured in 1996 or later that are OBD II -compliant with standard 16-pin OBD II protocols (J1850 VPM, J1850PWM, ISO9141, KWP 2000 and CAN).
  • For Volkswagen (VAG) vehicles diagnostics, the device can not only read and clear codes on engine, ABS, transmission, SAS (not all cars), ESP, TPMS and other systems, but also reset the oil, brake pad and throttle position adaption.
  • For other OBD II vehicles (non-Volkswagen), the VD500 can read and clear fault codes, display fault code definitions, turn off the CEL (check engine light) and retrieve VIN information ONLY.
  • The VD500 diagnostic offering for Volkswagen vehicles covers the following vehicles: VW (CC, EOS, Golf, GTI, Jetta, Passat, Phaeton, Polo, Rabbit, Sharan, Tiguan, Touran, Touareg); Audi (A3, A4, A6, A7, A8, A5, Q3, Q5, Q7, R8, RS3, TT, RS, RS5, S4, S6); Skoda (Octavia, Rapid, Yeti, Kodiaq, Fabio, Superb); SEAT (Leon, Ateca, Ibiza, Altea, Cushion, Cord, Alhambra) Diagnostics.

Product Description

The VD500 scanner specializes in diagnosing Volkswagen Group vehicles (VW / AUDI / SKODA / SEAT), but can also diagnose the engine system of other non-Volkswagen vehicles (standard OBD-II protocol). If you have Volkswagen and other car brands at home, you can save a lot of maintenance costs with this product.

Please note: The update software only supports Windows 7/8/10. It does not support Mac laptops. Windows 8/10 system can run updated software directly. Only Windows 7 needs to have the driver installed. First, connect the VD500 car code reader to your computer using a USB cable. Then just download the software from the ANCEL website, follow on-screen instructions to install.

  • Q: I have a VW vehicle and a Non VW vehicle, can I purchase this for both of vehicles?
  • A: Yes, you can. VD500 can read and clear engine codes for 16 pin Non VW vehicle sold in US after 1996. Meanwhile, it can do more systems on your VW vehicle.
  • Q: How many systems can VD500 reset?
  • A: VD500 can reset Oil Service, Throttle Position Adaption and Brake Pad(EPB).

For other OBD II vehicles:
  1. Reads code
  2. Erases code
  3. Shows code definitions
  4. Retrieves VIN Information
  5. Turns off the MIL (check engine light)
  • Must be 12V cars and light trucks (non-electric) manufactured in 1996 or later that are OBD II-compliant with 16-Pin OBD II protocols (J1850 VPM, J1850PWM, ISO9141, KWP 2000 and CAN).

  • Special Functions for VAG vehicles diagnosis:
  • 1. Oil Service Reset
  • 2. Throttle Position Adaption
  • 3. Electrical Park Brake (EPB) Reset

Three Specific functions for VAG vehicles diagnosis ONLY:

Oil Service Reset

Changing oil is probably the most important part of routine maintenance for any vehicle. An oil change consists of removing old oil from a vehicle's engine and replacing it with fresh oil. The engine oil filter is usually also changed at the same time. VD500 code reader can reset your oil service to complete this important maintenance.

TPS Replacement Reset

If these problems occurs: engine stalling or misfiring, poor engine performance, lack of power, transmission shifting incorrectly, chances are that you need to get the throttle position sensor (TPS) inspected. After that, the trouble codes will need to be cleared. VD500 can clear codes and reset the TPS.

Electrical Park Brake (EPB) Reset

EPB (Electric Parking Brake) is a technology that applies parking brake via electronic control. VD500 is an essential tool required to release rear electric parking brake unit when replacing rear pads or discs so that the caliper piston can be moved back. It can also clear codes and the EPB light when the replacement is done.

TPMS for VAG Vehicles Diagnosis

If the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) light is illuminated, it means your tires could be underinflated, which can lead to undue tire wear and possible tire failure. VD500 can read codes on the TPMS system to identify possible problems including a bad sensor or underinflation and clear them when a solution is found.

SRS(Airbag) for VAG Vehicles Diagnosis

When the SRS (Safety Restraint System) light is on, it means that the Airbag Control Unit sees an issue in the system. The system is subsequently disabled and the airbags will not deploy in the event of an accident. You can use VD500 to check if there is a malfunction in the SRS system and get it fixed. It is very important that airbags are functioning properly at all times.

Transmission System for VAG Vehicles Diagnosis

If you notice the following: transmission slipping, rough shifts, delayed engagement, fluid leak or transmission warning, then your car may need to be maintained. You can use VD500 to do a series of diagnostics and pinpoint the problem area for repair.

ABS for VAG Vehicles Diagnosis

When you see the ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) light is on, you know it’s serious. VD500 can help. Just use it to identify what has gone wrong by plugging in the unit to your 16-pin port (normally under your steering wheel). You can make a determination what could be the causes of the error: low brake fluid, a blown fuse, or abnormal signals from wheel sensors.



Transmission System


Battery Check for VAG Diagnosis

The battery light (a light in the shape of a battery symbol) indicates a battery charging problem. If the battery light comes on and stays on while you are driving, the most common cause is a broken alternator belt. You can use VD500 to read the fault code and clear it when the problem is located.

ESP for VAG Vehicles Diagnosis

Electronic Stability Program (also Electronic Stability Control) can improve a vehicle's stability by detecting and reducing loss of traction (skidding). When ESP detects a loss of steering control, please check the ESP light and get a code reading before you do anything about it. It can help you to minimize potential losses, both monetary and in terms of human life.

SAS for VAG Vehicles Diagnosis

The steering angle sensor (SAS) is a critical part of the ESC system that measures the steering wheel position angle and rate of turn. SAS is very important for the safety of the driver and the passenger alike. When the SAS light is on, you can use VD500 to read error codes. Once a problem is fixed, you can use VD500 to clear the codes.

Immobilizer for VAG Diagnosis

The immobilizer warning light turns on if your anti-theft system does not recognize the car key being used, or if it's the wrong key or low on battery. The engine may start and run for a few seconds before dying or the engine may not even crank up at all. VD500 can assist you by reading error codes associated with the above-mentioned symptoms.
