Stop towing VW and Audi vehicles with Immobilizer problems to the dealer, deal with it yourself!

In South Africa, we no longer have the luxury of dealerships supplying independent service centers with

Login Codes

, also known as


, or

Secret Key Codes

. A Login Code is necessary to perform adaptations to any Immobilizer related functioning of a vehicle, like Key Coding (Immo 1/2/3/4/5), installing a new or used standalone Immobilizer (Immo 1/2), installing a new or used Instrument Cluster (Immo 2/3/4/5), or installing a new or used ECU (Immo 3/4/5).

Introducing the VAG Login Detector for VW and Audi vehicles:

With this Interface and Software, you can:

  • Retrieve Logins from Instrument Clusters.

This function applies to vehicles that has an Immobilizer integrated into the Instrument Cluster, typically used to code keys, or when replacing the Instrument Cluster.

  • Retrieve a Login from a vehicle's ECU.

This function applies to vehicles that are equipped with the EDC15 and ME7 ECU range. With an Immobilizer 3 system, one also needs a Login for the ECU, when replacing it.
In some cases, this function comes in very handy, when a Login is not retrievable from the Instrument Cluster, if the vehicle is fitted with an EDC15 or ME7 ECU, and the Immobilizer and ECU is a matched pair, then the login from the ECU will work on the Instrument cluster.

  • Retrieve Logins from Standalone Immobilizers.

This function applies to vehicles fitted with a Standalone Immobilizer, typically the VW Citi Golf, and older Audi range, for coding keys.
