This looks identical to the cable I have

I had purchased another one previously but it had the CH chipset inside, this one didn't work - would only talk to the TCU, hence why you need the VAG-K + CAN Commander above.

Just to finish this topic, I finally got my Vag-Com cable with a CH341 chipset (unfortunately!). Tried using it with Linux Mint 18.2 on an old Dell Netbook without result. FreeSSM COM options were greyed out and the software wouldn't connect with the ECU. Tried using Windows 7 Starter on the same PC with FreeSSM 1.2.5 installer. No drivers were auto-loaded so I installed the CH341SER.inf from the supplied CD that came with the Vag-Com USB>Serial cable. Unfortunately, FreeSSM would only read the transmission codes and would not connect to engine codes at all. Went back to troubleshoot linux again and found that the Vag-Com cable was indeed detected and connected as /dev/ttyUSB0. However, still no joy connecting with FreeSSM. I finally found a link https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=135914 suggesting to change permissions sudo chmod 777 /dev/ttyUSB0 and that worked! FreeSSM now reads both the transmission and engine codes on my MY02 Forester 2.5XS.

There are no error messages listed under Temporary Diagnostic Trouble codes (with the ignition key on but no engine running)

But in the section Memorised Diagnostic Trouble Codes, the following are reported:

P0032 SUBARU - HO2S11 Heater Control Circuit High (bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0030 SUBARU - O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Range/Performance (bank 1 Sensor 1)

Can someone tell me if this matters greatly, or can I just have it fixed on my next service.?
