How to connect wiTECH software to VCI Pod clone

You don’t need the USB cable or power cord for everyday use. As long as the wiTECH VCI POD is connected to the car (it gets power from the OBD plug), the unit can be connected via ethernet. Keep in mind, there is no DHCP server on the ethernet port so you need to set both your computer and VCI POD to a fixed IP address. My ethernet on the chinese clone did not work out of the box. See below for further troubleshooting.
Problem: Cannot connect to VCI POD via Ethernet. Keep getting 169.254.x.x as IP address.

Solution: Need to change Network Settings on VCI POD

A 169.254.x.x means the computer has a physical ethernet link, but cannot get an IP address from your router/pc.
1. Set computer to fixed IP address
2. Connect USB to VCI POD
3. In web browser, connect to
4. Under Network Settings, change radio button from “Obtain an IP address automatically from a DHCP server” to “Use the following IP address and settings”
5. Under IP Settings, change IP Addr:
6. Disconnect USB.
7. Plug in Ethernet to VCI POD and computer. Connect power cable to VCI POD (or connect to OBD).
8. In web browser, now connect to (it will also be visible in WiTech)
Problem: Connect VCI POD to notebook and VCI lights (safe, wlan, busy, and rec) are blinking permanent. wiTECH does not recognize the VCI.

Solution: Need to enter recovery mode and manually update VCI POD. (Could be a wiTECH software version and VCI POD firmware mismatch)

1. Put empty card into wiTECH
2. Connect to notebook by LAN not USB
3. Run IE and go to address (or fixed IP address you manually assigned), select software update, and in dcc tools folder select recovery file with zip extension
a. Look at the folder Program FilesDCC ToolswiTECH Serverinstallbundles
b. On Windows 10 x64: C:Program Files (x86)DCC ToolswiTECHjserverinstallbundles

Tip: In the file name “vservera.upgrade-mpvci-x.x.x”, the x.x.x is the firmware version you should have loaded on your VCI POD to have it work correctly with the wiTECH software version currently installed on your pc. The VCI POD firmware version can be verified at the top left corner of the unit homepage labeled as “System Release”.

VAS 6154 china clone:

VAS 6154 best price: US$119.00

Cloned VAS 6154 in UK:


What is VAS 6154:


This VAS 6154 Interface is the latest interface for the diagnostic and programming applications VAG ODIS-S (Service) and ODIS-E (Engineering),it replaces the VAS 5054A.
Available for Off-board Diagnostic Information Engineering from version 6.2 onward and Off-board Diagnostic Information Service from version 3.0.3 onward.
The VAS 6154 can be used with all VW Audi Seat Skoda Bentley Lamborghini vehicles from 2000 onward including NEW & FUTURE MODLES under production.

The diagnosis interface VAS 6154 with wireless network technology supersedes remote diagnosis head VAS 5054A and diagnosis interface VAS 5055. It makes wireless transmission of data possible from the interface in the vehicle to the diagnosis unit.

If a wireless connection is not possible/permissible, the USB module is used, which guarantees a reliable wired data transmission to the diagnosis unit.


VAS6154 Infrastructure mode: 

In infrastructure mode, several network-capable devices can be connected together (network subscribers).
For a wireless network, a WLAN access point is required. This access point forms the connection to WLAN-ready subscribers.


VAS6154 point-to-point connection:

With point-to-point connection via a wireless network, VAS 6154 creates a radio network. VAS 6154 thereby adopts the role of a radio access point (Access Point). A direct connection is made between the diagnosis unit and the diagnosis interface VAS 6154.
VAS 6154 is configured using the web-based user interface.


VAS6154 Design and features:

VAS 6154 china clone interface comes with inner boards updated & improved a lot.


There are two 6154 versions: one with wireless network & USB modules and the other without wireless network module (the wireless network module can be retrofitted at any time provided national regulations permit).

Galletto v54 EDC17 Questions & Answers:


Q: Galletto works fine on VW EDC17CP14ecu?

A: Yes


Q: with edc17cp10 psa no problem read/write but with this cp14 vag not work even in bootmode and obd ( read ok in both)

A: CP14 shouldn't be problem on Tricore boot. I think you have broken ECU or device.


Q: Galletto v54 checksum not supported, how to do?

A: 0. Read Original ALL with Galletto boot mode. It will give you "All" file (4,224kb), internal flash+external flash+eeprom, (in my case).
1. Paste mod internal flash (make sure checksums are already correct) into the original 'all' file. Align correctly. Internal flash starts at 00, so it is easy.
2.Triple checkthat the paste is ok!
3. Flash modded "all" file in Galletto. This is done using "Write All" button.
4. It takes much longer to flash a file with differences. It took about 6+ minutes on first part - internal flash. It went to 100%, then to 75% and up to 100% slowly many times. Total over 10 minutes.
5. Read All to verify!
6. Compare with Hex Editor.

Car started, DPF functions are all gone.


Q: Is it possible to attempt to flash the big 4.2 MB 'all' file (int flash, ext flash, eeprom combined)?

can I paste my changes there, and checksums too?

A: The answer is YES

I flashed the original 4224kb 'all' file back to the ecu successfully. Galletto skips checksum correction for the ALL file.

Risky, but I guess I was brave enough. The boot pin accidentally untouched, and galletto stopped and told me to remove power and reconnect. WHILE FLASHING. Nearly peed my pants.

I repositioned boot pin, reconnected power, and it continued error free!

After, I did a verification read of all.

100% identical to original

Now I will paste my internal flash mods (with checksum corrected already) into the 4224kb file, and flash that.


Q: How to delete individual dtc codes from edc17 (cp14 was the flavor i was working with)?

A: example:

009298 - Diesel Particle Filter; Differential Pressure Sensor

P2452 - 000 - Elect. Malfunction - MIL ON


find the p code in the p code look up table. 16bit, hex.

location: 190a7a

p code table start: 190654

get your hex calculator!

190a7a - 190654: 426. divide by 2, 213.

find your vag specific dtc look up table. 8 bit.



table start location: 18569e

18569e + 213: 1858b1. this is the location of the p2452 dtc. 00 this byte.

no more dtc light.

same process as me7 except /2 instead of /8.
