Have here a 2012 Volkswagen Passat diesel. Just wondering if anyone familiar with these have problems communicating with the scan tool. I know these awhile back were taken off the road. So I imagine very few are out there. This vehicle belongs to the boss's family member so just curious and like to help out if possible. Didn't know if anyone has run into this problem before. We cannot communicate with autel and the snap on scanner. Only we can pull codes if we do OBD global. Didn't know if this is a software issue or maybe just an issue with this vehicle. Any input would be appreciated.

On my Zeus scan tool I called it an euro PCM instead of a North America. One of my co-workers had a 2010 Touareg with a evap issue in order to get codes that what I had to do. The rest of the CAN system I was able to scan in the North America. Hope this works for you.

What scan tool are you using? If perchance a Snapon, load the vehicle in expert mode and see if that doesn't work.
