Hi, I know there's a classified section but I couldn't work out how to do a wanted advert. #useless?
I am looking for a spare ECU from an APY engined S3. I need to get it sent to Australia too. I know there's a few on ebay, I just feel a bit more comfortable dealing with someone, with a bit...
Jesus, it's taken me a couple of weeks to read this thread on and off. It started out when I was looking for info on FMICs for S3s and also WM. I was engrossed and got square eyes a few times while at work on nights. :D
The last 2 or 3 pages were just the worst, all that hard work seemingly...
Get hold of a VCDS cable and custom-settings and turn the boost down with that. Even a cheapo ebay should work at a push.

I have read that APR remaps can reset to standard after the battery has been changed. If you have cruise control, hold the button on the end of the stalk in and see what the engine check light does.
Ignition on engine not running.
I'd be interested to hear if the shocks fix the knocking. I have the same problem with mine. The shocks are standard with about 210000kms on. I have changed the ARB bushes twice as they were the normal fix.
I did discover today that the knocking goes away when your on the brakes, no matter how...
You would want the car running 100% before having any flash. Be prepared to come across issues after flashing, it doesn't happen all the time but I have had coilpacks and sparkplugs cause problems after flashing.
If you have a APY in the S3 the coils seem to be ok, the BAM coilpacks give up a...
You should be good with standard plugs on a stage 1 map. If it is dropping out as soon as boost comes in, that's a good indicator the coilpacks are done. I had this on a 225 TT I flashed last year, it the coilpacks one at a time until it had 4 new ones.
Generic code readers don't give enough info to work off mate. VAG-COM is the thing you need to do this job. I would be surprised if the ECU is done. Although engine faults do turn off "luxury" items. There was a lad here in Australia that had a bad MAF/air flow meter that caused ESP issues.
That's a sad tale. :sadlike:
I was all ready to hear how well it was running, after the clutch pedal bit.
You won't know what to do with yourself, once you get it finished. All the free time in the evenings. :happy:
Best of luck getting it sorted this week.
More miles will see the swept area increase.
Following from what Bill asked....
Have a look at these to stop the caliper moving so much, when you press the pedal. Reduced movement will improve feel at the pedal.
A dehumidifier would be good. I'd remove the battery altogether and probably plan to get a new one when you get back.
Take the wheels off if you can, find some cheapies to put it on or axle stands.
