Dealer "scan tools" vrs Generic type


#1

All the manufactures have scan tools that have in the past had much greater capabilites than generic equipment.Mostly in the “body electronics” area (security systems.lighting,power sliding door systems)Are the new non-dealer tools getting better in this area.Less circumstances that require a dealer visit=lower cost for public.

I don’t know of other cars, but I know of no third party scanner that can do half of what a VAGCOM (The VW dedicated scanner) can read or adjust.
