This page documentsVCDS support for VW Crafter (LT3) light trucks. Communication with all control modules is supported with the following functions; Control Module ID and Advanced ID, Fault Codes (Read and Clear), Supported Codes, Security Access, and Adaptation. Other functions such as Measuring Values, Output Tests, and Basic Settings will be added in future versions.

  • To access Crafter modules individually, click the new "LT3" tab on the Select Control Module screen: 

  • VCDS allows you to read and clear (fault codes) in all control modules in VW Crafter light trucks:


  • VCDS supports reading and saving Adaptation values in all control modules in VW Crafter light trucks. This is particularly useful in order to be able to reset the Service Reminder Indicator.   To reset SRI in a Crafter, click the LT3 tab in the Select Control Module Screen, then click [96 - Instruments] and you'll get to a screen like this:

    Now click [Adaptation] which will produce the usual UDS Adaptation screen:

    On this screen, click the down-arrow in drop-down box labeled "Channel" and then select "Service interval extension - Reset Konstante".  The precise name of this channel may vary depending on exact instrument cluster installed in the vehicle, but the correct channel should not be hard to find:

    Once you've selected the channel, the Stored value should be four bytes of hexadecimal data.  If the Service Reminder is ON, these will usually (but not always) be "00 00 00 01".    To reset the Service Reminder, type in a New Value of "00 00 00 00", and click [Do It!].   After that, you'll have to confirm that you really want to do this:

    We strongly urge customers not to to alter Adaptation channels unless they understand the contents of a particular channel.
