    Audi S3 2008 Needle Sweep VCDS

    Hi!
    I am trying to do this thru the VCDS and it seems that i dont have the long coding
    helper to activate this! I believe this is the thing but like i said,i dont have the this options!
    [Select]
    [17 - Instruments]
    [Coding - 07]
    [Long Coding Helper]
    Click on each of the Byte numbers in step 3) and you'll see the selectable options below.
    Check the box for "Gauge Test/Needle Sweep active"
    [Do It!]

    Is there any other way to activate this?
    My car is year 2008,so i think it should have the right cluster for needle sweep!?

    I checked the whole forum and i didnt find any right anwers! If i missed some good thread
    how to activate this than post the link please.

    Cheers!
    J.

    Try going into Adaption instead of coding and see what the drop down menu says.

    Had a look into this for my 2007 S3 with no joy, don't think it can be done but will be interested to see if this isn't the case
    S3 8P2 Ice Silver, RNS-E, Bluetooth, iPod connection, Adaptive xenons, black styling pack, sunroof, privacy glass
    Mods since owned: Milltek Resonated TBE, Neuspeed P-Flo, Loba HPFP, Sachs Clutch with Loba SMF, Unicorn Motor Developments custom remap, brakes + suspension upgrades, LEDs internal and external, more interior kit
