So I managed to get it started. I think the battery was weak or something. Felt like the starter was sticking. Took a few tries and it crank. first time nothing, second time a small click. 3rd s turn over and 4th it started.

@southpawboston I'm really interested in always having the gear number displayed in my '18 SE DSG. I see that in your spreadsheet of tested mods you wrote "Aisin AG6 only" next to "Display gear next to D/S in DIS". Are all DSG transmissions the Aisin AG6 model, or is it only some? If this works on any DSG, it's great news--the consensus on another forum is that the always-on gear display is just not possible without a total DSG tune from a 3rd party.

OBD eleven fault code

I kind of regret buying OBDeleven. I bought the pro version and did some changes using on the apps. This thing does long codes in the background. I am now getting a KEYLESS ACCESS FAULT and I don't know what it is or how to fix it.

Here is my history:

GTE enquiry
Having used VCDS I have managed to get the DRL option on the MIB they now turn off when lights are off or on side lights. but my DRL”s in the bumper still activate with the low beam’s. Is there a way to permanently switch them off?
Thank you

can you reset it to default or did you make a backup?

roded: Hi

Notice that the record of the change to your module @ address B7 does NOT have the term "App". This means that the change was made manually. So, whilst you may not have intended to make the change to the B7 module's code-string, it was made by human intervention :)

So - I suggest that you un-wind the code change back to its original value - manually

here's a more readable version of the code-string values in your history report for the B7 module:
Code:
          Old Value	         New Value	
Byte	Hex	Binary	       Hex      Binary
0	03	00000011	03	00000011
1	2C	00101100	2C	00101100
2	0C	00001100	1C	00011100

Note that a change was made to Byte 2, Bit 4 (remember that Bit-numbers in Binary values are read from right-to-left. so Bit 0 is the right most digit in the Binary value). Bit 4 is therefore the fifth Bit from the right hand side,

So go to the Coding page for the B7 module in OBD11, navigate to Byte 2 - the upper RHS of the screen should say "HEX 1C" - if so, untick Bit 4. If you have made the correct change, the upper RHS of the screen should change to say "HEX 0C", Only if you get this value - enact the change by pressing the green circle

Then clear the error code from the B7 module and see if it re-appears

worth a try- I reckon

Ok, after almost a week with my first GTI (had a ‘12 GLI once), I’ve got some minor irritating things that I can’t figure out, as well as some mods questions.

First let’s start with some basic things I’m hoping VCDS can do for me:

•Disable Seatbelt chime
•Disable door open chime (I know we never could get this to work on the B8.5 Audi platform)
•convince windows/roof on FOB
•Disable light are on chime

Now, to the real ones I can’t seem to figure out:

How do you get the LED lighting strips (doors/dash inserts) to stay on all the time?
I’ve only noticed them once on at night. I’ve got them set to on, and up all the way. They won’t even turn on when I turn my headlights on manually.

When I was driving at night, the dome/reading lights in the rear seat area were fully illuminated. Didn’t matter if I had them clicked on or off on the push buttons. Really annoying while driving. All doors were closed fully.

When exiting the car, the front dome lights don’t illuminate. Only the rear dome lights.
Makes it really dark in the car and you can’t see anything.

When locking the car, is there a way to make the door lock and set the alarm with one click on the FOB? For whatever reason I have to click my lock button once, and then again the get the horn beep setting the alarm. (I’m not certain if it does it the same when using the door sensor).

Someone please, for the love of all that is holy, tell me a way to permanently set the Start/Stop function to off, so I don’t have to do it every time I get in and out of the car.
(Getting a 6MT would have assured this I’m aware!)

Here’s another major one. Disabling the touchscreen while in motion. I cannot stand that message popping up that won’t let you touch it while you’re driving.

Lastly, is there a way in VCDS to turn on the Race setting found on the GolfR? Sport is the highest the GTI will go. I’m sure it’s just a check box or in the coding somewhere to do it however.

I’m going to be getting the Unitronic ECU and DSG tune. Not sure, I thought I saw a pedal box option as well. Any feedback on the tunes would be appreciated.
I blew the motor on my 2.0T Audi (Stage3 K04), but had great luck with just the stage I tune on the 3.0T S/C platform. Will the stage 1+ tune (93) be too much for this motor to take long term?

Welcome to the forum.

Merged your topic with an existing topic.
Please try to use the FAQ at the top of the forum and in my signature. There is a lot of information in there already and helps with the duplicate topics.
Also there is a search function that works really well and that also helps with not having a bunch of duplicate topics.

Thanks

I see that in your spreadsheet of tested mods you wrote "Aisin AG6 only" next to "Display gear next to D/S in DIS". Are all DSG transmissions the Aisin AG6 model, or is it only some? If this works on any DSG, it's great news--the consensus on another forum is that the always-on gear display is just not possible without a total DSG tune from a 3rd party.
The DSG is its own beast, unrelated to the Aisin torque-converter transmission.

To get the D/S display next to the gear for a DSG, you need to get a DSG tune.

my understanding is that if the code-string on the module @ address hex02 is 0014 then you are correct. But if the code-string has the value 00348 - it is possible to get the gear number to show by changing to 00448

Thank you for starting this thread! I was just about to since I couldn't find one for the 7.5 cars and VCDS tweaks.

Have you tested this one? It's one that I really want to do, but with my 7.5, the long coding is very different vs my 7.

Instructions for MK7. 03 ABS > 07 Coding > Long coding

Typical long coding looks like this:
01 FA 6B A1 34 25 29 6F 03 7B 06 01 C1 C9 A9 80 D6 2C 94 C0 60 83 95 F5 00 42 50 3A C1 09

Byte 29 is 09 and these are the possible options:

01 ESC ON
02 ESC ON/ASR OFF
03 ESC ON/ESC SPORT
04 ESC ON/ESC OFF
05 ESC ON/ASR OFF/ESC OFF
06 ESC ON/ESC SPORT/ESC OFF
07 ESC ON/ASR OFF/ESC OFF
08 ESC ON/ESC SPORT/ESC OFF
09 ESC ON/ASR OFF/ESC SPORT

However, on my '18 7.5 I have 42 bytes and byte 29 is not 09, so I've been hesitant to mess with it.


Comparison of MK7 (top) and 7.5 (bottom):
01 FA 6B A1 34 25 29 6F 03 7B 06 01 C1 C9 A9 80 D6 2C 94 C0 60 83 95 F5 00 42 50 3A C1 09
01 FA 6B A1 54 29 21 6D 80 7E 02 06 60 C4 68 80 D6 2A 84 01 40 06 16 76 10 41 50 51 C0 89 43 0B 00 00 00 12 12 12 12 B8 35 35 19 19 32 32 00

http://www.muller.net/sonny/tmp/abs-vcds.jpg
I know this is quite old now, but I figured out the solution for the mk7.5 that has the longer string of bytes with 89 as the default value for byte 29. You simply replace all the zeroes in the above option list with eights.

81 ESC ON
82 ESC ON/ASR OFF
83 ESC ON/ESC SPORT
84 ESC ON/ESC OFF
85 ESC ON/ASR OFF/ESC OFF
86 ESC ON/ESC SPORT/ESC OFF
87 ESC ON/ASR OFF/ESC OFF
88 ESC ON/ESC SPORT/ESC OFF
89 ESC ON/ASR OFF/ESC SPORT


I was able to use the above values and it works perfectly. You'll get a BRAKE BOOSTER LIMITED error at first, but after you restart you're good to go.

Amber DRL

ok so I haven't found this anywhere yest but... has anyone changed their DRL to the amber signal yet? Not sure if it can be done but figured this is the right place to ask!

it's on a 2018 GTi Autobahn

Note: i don't care if it flashes white in between when signal is active. i just want the DRL to be amber!

On the front lights or rears? (Rears would only have amber if you installed the Euro rear lights with a wiring harness then programmed it). Front lights are always amber when blinkers are on

I'm looking to run the DRL (front) in amber instead of the white from factory. so it would be amber all the time

Ohh, ok. Im not too sure about that. But just speaking from being a driver, having your ambers on all the time and having the white lights blink to indicate turning would be very very confusing for other people on the road... I dont think you should make your ambers run as your DRL's and DRL's run as your turn signal.

Ideally i would like to have it only run amber and to not have a white light at all, but I understand your point.

Hoping someone one here has an idea to make this work!

hmm......... sounds interesting, but are you sure that this (odd) arrangement is road-legal in Canada? I guess the ultimate risk that will result is that an accident will occur and the other driver can claim that your car wasn't road-worthy. Also not sure if your insurance policy might be affected in this situation. The more likely risk however is probably the "local-plod" (not sure what term Canada uses for "traffic police") will levy a fine and perhaps not allow the car to use your roads. Of course whether you accept these risks is entirely a matter of how you value risk in these situations (which is a personal decision) - but please, I implore that you first check this aspect of the project before proceeding !!

As for the specifics of what you want, the answer is yes - it is possible through "Leuchte-programming". But a few things to consider:

first - what type of front blinker lamps are installed? If they are incandescent, DON'T proceed because the lamp base on your turn-signals is NOT rated for this type of operation. Think about the turn-signal operation -when the blinker is turned-on, these lamps are only illuminated for 50 % of the time (it's called a "50% duty-cycle"). VW rate their lamp bases for this usage pattern - if you run these as DRLs, you will enforce a 100% duty cycle on the fittings and the power flowing through the lamp base will increase four-fold (because of the formula Watts=I^2*R)

second- What type of front headlight fittings on the car? If your car has LCMs (Light Control Modules) it means that the DRLs are not managed by the module @ address hex09 and therefore the DRL behavior cannot be modified

2018 GTI-Autobahn DSG. Does anyone know how to get the carbon fiber look on the MFD and/or radio background? I tried the adaptions posted around, but it already shows as Value = Option 2 for carbon fiber look. Problem is the backgrounds still show regular black look, not carbon fiber. There were a couple other number options available, but new to coding and was a bit hesitant to try others. ??
