Default OBD can't connect, 2001 TT

Hello,


I have a 2001 Audi TT Quattro. For some reason the OBD reader cannot connect to the car, so no pass on emission test

Here's some information and stuff I tried:
- the car has the original BOSE radio working, and station info is displayed on the dashboard
- engine check light is not on, and I can run the diagnostics from the dashboard, which prints OK at the end
- I checked all the fuses on the side panel
- I cleaned the OBD connector with contact cleaner
- tried 3 different OBD readers (emission test computer, handheld OBD reader at shop, and I have a simple OBD reader), they all error out
- I checked the K-line voltage between pins 4+7, reads 0.18 volts
- I do not have a VAG-COM
- the car was not driven for over a year (due to new babies in the house), the battery was dead so I replaced it

What else can I do to diagnose/fix this problem? I've seen some posts suggesting cleaning radio/HVAC connections.

A mechanic suggested that some cars need to go through certain number of startup/warmup cycles before the OBD works, not sure if that applies.

Should I get a VAG-COM?


Thanks so much,
-lajos

I still have no solution. I got a vag-com, which can't connect to the car either.

Well, I'm not the first owner of the car, so it's possibility. Although this car has passed inspection since I got it (they need to connect to obd for smog), so I'm afraid I have a different issue.

But I'll check for superchip. Thanks for the tip!

I assume by now you have resolved this issue or sold your vehicle :-) What did you find out.

Check your wiring on the OBD connector. I believe I had a wire/pin that was loose in the connector. You might want to use a continuity tester/wand for this.
