    tried again to code mine in with no joy. think i must have the wrong module. code accepts fine but still get the dis error. wondering could i fit resisters in the wiring like my new LED fogs have in from T8ups???

    would love to still keep the OEM lamps with out errors is poss.

    jamie,

    get in touch with SilkyS3, he did this months ago to his 2010 s3 and it works a treat. he should have pictures of where to mount.

    Thanks

    hi. did you check are they working? as when i did fit mine i was getting error on DIS because metal contacts on the back of the LED's were short and didn't seat on their place so one light didn't work at all. after few mins of trying to extend and position the contacts and screwing it tight, everything was fine.

    Is it possible to upgrade the software version above 650 I think ? Or how much roughly for a newer module?

    White Audi RS3,

    you need to go to byte 17, turn the 1st 0 in the binary box to 1, then click into another byte, exit and do it. you may get a msg up giving 3 options, click no and it will save. and it may work.

    Thanks

    You would need vas or odis to verify with vag germany if update was available, but newer versions are about £270.

    To verify if there's updates available you will be able to use odis & vas aswell, as its been done numerous times by my dealer, I know this as my ecu was done & I know the guys very well & my mate has updated with vas on his mk5 from home, lol.

    i think you have the same problem as me. wrong SW cant remeber exactly but i think you need SW650 and above and you have the same as me which is SW615 so wont code up. it sucks, im going to see a guy i know with VAS hopefully i can update to module and then im able to code in LED plate lights.

    Not sure but I think the first binary number is the one at the right hand end of the code. Presumably that is the one you changed from zero to one ?

    Google Translate

    Found this on google as Jambo26 says you need software version 0651 and above. My car is an early MY11, so I don't think I have this.
    Can this be upgraded without buying a new part? i.e updated by Audi.

    Thanks

    Yes modules can be upgraded, but only with the upgrade file that comes with vas/odis or via the online link to germany.

    Been looking for a solution on the net for a way to upgrade the module, so far I've found a "TPI 2029738". Which I believe is a technical fix for malfunctioning rear wiper etc, but basically updates the module to a more recent level.
    I think you should be able to ask for this at your Audi garage.

    I'll try and give my dealer a call some day and see.

    TPI is Technical Product Information which I think is the details of a known technical issue and the fix. In this case the fix in TPI 2029738, should be update electrics module with SVM??
    All the details are in German forums but basically you tell your dealer you are having intermittant problems with your rear wiper and sugest the TPI2029738, they update the module and all is good except you loose any previous coding.

    TPI's are listed in elsawin, mine is out of date so maybe someone else can check what the TPI exactly states.
