when you say too many communication errors, do you mean no communication whatsoever with the module, or it recognises the module but failing to communicate with fault codes/data etc

it maybe the software causing the problem if its not a genuine vcds (vag-com)

are you going straight into ABS menu or running an Autoscan

either way, when trying to access the abs module, in the top left of the screen, do you see the comm status and protocol coming up with anything, if you do, does it show controller info?

if its a non genuine VCDS, may not work on all controllers, even the genuine VCDS-Lite had problems as they were an entry level programme for non commercial use, which meant the software was tested but not guaranteed to work and not supported for updates/glitch fixes.

only way you can check if its a software issue, is to try getting it connected on another machine capable of reading the abs.

but as said before, could be the actual module is faulty, in which case, will need to be removed for testing/refurb
