I've just got VAG-COM but have a bit of a problem. I've got a '99 TT and so far I've managed to scan for faults and reset them. What I want to do now is change some settings such as making the dash lights only come on with the headlights and to make the alarm chirp on locking the car. I've read that the code in the recode area of the control module tells you what options are switched on and off by virtue of a 16 bit binary word. However, I don't know where to find what each bit of the word (eg bit 4 - value 8 is lights on). Ross tech's site shows that a ballon comes up on the recode screen http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/tou...de_screen.html that tells you how to choose the options you want and work out what number to enter. Does anyone know if I should have this balloon coming up or do I need to work out the codes for myself.
Sorry if I haven;t explained this very well, but anyone with VAG-COM experience will probably know what I'm rambling on about.
