    10.6

    I only need to confirm I'm counting the bits correctly.

    Are you using lcode directly to create a coding before connecting to the car or long coding connected to the car, cause the latter should for that CE module show the tick boxes no problems.

    Not 100% sure.

    I think it's the long coding. I connected to the car, and clicked on 'Long Coding Helper' (or 'Long Code Helper', something like that)

    I only have that screen shot as I took it so I had a reference to change back if it all went wrong. lol.

    Ah well if its connected to the car then certainly you should see the tick boxes, there was a bug where some modules didnt show the tick boxes/descriptions, try uninstalling vcds & reinstalling & see if they show up on the 1st usage, if so then come out & go back in & see if it still shows up the correct info, if not then this is the bug, only 1st time you went into modules it showed the info correctly, I had same issue on my conv module, updated to newer module & problem went, but I sent my old module into RT to track down the problem as I wasnt alone.

    What version of 10.6 are you using, are you using the latest?

    Ah OK thanks for the information.

    It doesn't really matter to me about the tick boxes as its just as easy changing a 0 to a 1 than it is clicking a box. So I'd still like to know if 'Bit 0' refers to the 1st digit and therefore 'Bit 7' the last?

    Does anyone have any similar info for a MY11 8P3? Just had a look at mine and the long coding helper bears no resemblance to the options listed above. I know that controller 46 was assimilated into 9 in recent models so I suspect this has changed everything.

    Do you have the Comfort System on channel 46? It seems that the latest cars don't have this - it's all been merged into the Central Electronics on channel 9 instead. Seems this isn't all 8P3 models but only the very latest MY10/11 cars.

    Its been staggered across the year as with most chassis facelifts, hence why some 8P3 models have older modules/wiring.

    So this module is how you tell what wiring you have? makes sense really as they always phase out old parts across the facelifts

    Yeap, my 54 car had wiring for a facelift pump but had older pump, hence why I had to upgrade for the white dis.

    When I tick the box for auto lock after 15 kmh it says: The equipment number is invalid! Equipment number must be 5-6 digits: 00000-262143

    Try using the actual release version 11.11.5, instead of the beta version.

    I vaguely remember reading when I first got my car that it was possible to adjust the weight of the power steering. I've had a quick search and this thread was the most useful discovery. Can anyone confirm if my memory is correct and if so what's the prodecure required for adjustment?

    09 - Central Electronics

    Long Coding Helper:

    Byte 0
    Bit 3 - Daytime Running Lights (Scandinavia) active - (DRLs plus tailights)

    This is not an option for me.

    Byte 0 is all to do with unlocking.

    Any ideas?

    Hi guys,
    Was wondering if anyone can help me with this..

    On my vehicles manual book i saw a "gear change indicator" and that it can be turned off. I think either mines been turned of by one of the previous owners'. Wondering if this could be coded to display it on my DIS?
    I have an A3 8P (2007)
