Hello! Welcome to justanswer!


Go to any autoparts store and buy or rent a universal obd2 testor and plug it into the port under the dash near the hood release and use the tool to gather the codes.

Will the universal reader have the proper cable end to mate up with the VW connector?

Was you car bought in the US or Canada?

Then you are ok. All US cars in 03 have the same connector and the universal tool works on any car from 1996 onwards.
