   Features:
  • Serial connection, ideal for older, low-cost laptops or most desktop PCs.
    A USB-port version is also available; click here for full specs.

  • Acts as a "dongle".   No "Software activation"  required!   When used with this interface, VAG-COM is always fully-functional on any PC that meets our requirements.

  • Full support for dual-K lines found in "new" (B6/8E chassis Audi A4 and 2002+ Audi A6 -- no VAS-6017 required -- no manual switches!

  • OBD-II connector made to our own specifications.  Fits even in the "tight" cars like '96 Audi A4's, '96/'97 Audi A6's and all  European B5 Passats and B5 Audi A4's. 

  • Electronic protection against over-current conditions on both K1 and K2/L lines, no fuses required, eliminates the most common failure mode.

  • Bi-Color (red/green) status/activity LED

  • 12 month guarantee against defects.

This interface comes with an OBD-II type connector which plugs in to most 1994 and newer VW's and 1996 and newer Audis.   Most 1990-1995 Audis and 1990-1993 VW's have the "2x2" data link connector, click here for more info.

Compatibility:  

This interface works with most diagnostic-capable VW, Audi, Seat, and Skoda models from 1990 through 2004 but does not work with any model requiring a direct CAN connection for diagnostics.   If you have a 2003+, check to see if your car has a CAN connection.

Computer Requirements:  

A 100 Mhz or faster PC running Windows 95 or newer with an available Serial port.   If your PC does not have an available Serial port, you should get the KII-USB instead.

Extending this Interface:

The cable on this adapter is about 6 feet long -- just right for use with most laptops.   If you want to use this interface with a desktop PC, you will need a standard serial (DB9M to DB9F) extension cord.   We usually stock extensions in 15' (3m).   See the Accessories Section of our Store for pricing.

Resale:

The KEY-COM acts as a "dongle" for VAG-COM, so VAG-COM will be fully functional on any PC you use with the this interface.  However, product support is provided only to the original purchaser.  If you buy a second-hand KEY-COM from someone and want support, you'll still need to pay $99 to register.

Upgrade Offer: 

Out of production -- no longer available.

Software:

The KEY-COM should be used with the latest version of VCDS software.  

Note:

We do not sell any interfaces as a "Stand-Alone" products.   We only sell them with our VCDS software.

How to order:

Out of production -- no longer available.
