not sure if the cable from the pro-diag will work for you or not, but you are welcome to try (or to just use the pro-diag).  I'll be home in Brighton by about 1:30 this afternoon.  If you want to drive east to get it, you can borrow it after that.

Hmm, I wonder of the cable from my pro diag would work, I think it will but you would need an adaptor for the serial port?  Or you can borrow my pro-diag. Basically the same thing as VAG-COM but for Palm Pilots.

I live pretty far from you (Centennial), but if you want to borrow it let me know.

If you want to head up to the Fort, and you have your own laptop with a serial port, I have the cables and the software.  My laptop doesn't have any serial ports, so I use a USB-Serial converter, which may or may not get all the codes and data.  Let me know.

Actually if you come up there is a GTG at BWW on Harmony and College tommorrow night.
