I have emailed the Ross Tech support department for some assistance, just trying to understand things a bit myself.
Tomorrow I will be retro-fitting the Bluetooth KIT 7P6035730F module in my MY12 Skoda Octavia VRS.
In preparation I have had a look at the CAN bus coding as I believe I will need...
Well after 5 years with the A3 I am off to pastures new on Saturday.
The A3 is being traded in against a 9 month old Skoda Octavia VRS 2.0TFSi in Race Blue.
So I have a busy Thursday and Friday putting the A3 back to stock.
ICE all out and back to the stock Bose single DIN single CD unit...
Hmm not very happy at all at the moment, just spoken to Customer Services as I am changing to a STOCK Octavia VRS from a fairly heavily modified A3. First off get a quote for the change of vehicle another £108 more to insure, total working out over £116 quid a year more expensive than Skoda...
Help required, given my current grief with the A3, I have been tempted over to the Vauxhall website.
0% finance on a VXR GTC Astra Coupe with lifetime warranty, now why can't Audi offer me that deal on a new S3 ?
GM must have done the sums on the lifetime warranty and it must add up, that I...
Well unfortunately my 2.0TDi BKD under-boost issue that I thought I had completely fixed has reared it's head again.
It is a lot better since I replaced a damaged boost o-ring, but it dropped an under boost code yesterday.
In my previous testing I have confirmed that the VNT...
Haven't posted on here for a while - been fairly busy at work and found this place too distracting so had to avoid the forum.
Anyway having a mere of a time at the moment, sequence of events :-
Been getting over boost codes, car has done 83K miles and tried last year to clean with Innotech...
Had a great weekend at Thruxton for the British Touring Cars, caught a bit too much Sun on the Saturday and as usual it was a cold day sat in the Grandstand on the Sunday.
Anyway took a few pictures which can be seen here BTCC Thruxton 2011 pictures by Gti_Jazz_Blue - Photobucket
Carried out some diagnostic tests on the car and I am popping over boost DTCs on a logged full throttle run in 3rd gear. So chances are that the vanes are clogged in my Turbo, so I now have a new gasket, downpipe clamp and an Innotec cleaning kit sitting ready.
Just need to sort out the ramp...
Managed to find the time to upload some of my FoS pictures.
Sample one :-

Just found this document on the internet http://www.volkspage.net/technik/ssp/ssp/SSP_332.pdf which is an Audi self study module. According to it the Sportback uses an air pressure sensor in each front door to deploy the airbags. So it contains the following warning, so looks like I won't be...
Anyone been able to enable TPMS on a 59 (2009) plate A3 ABS ECU 1K0 907 379 AD ?
It is using long coding and the long code helper didn't help.
Scan of the info required below.

Following on from my rust thread, could you all do a quick check when you have a few minutes. As I posted in my rust thread, my A3 had a new passenger door last year due to an accident, and it seems to be a modified design as it differs from my original 2005 drivers door.
If you could check...
Well it looks like I may have a slight leak of boost, you can feel a slight dip in power at about 2K and you can hear what sounds like a boost leak. Had a quick visual and it looks like it may be the intercooler pipe connection on the drivers side as there is a fair amount of oil mist about that...
Gave the car a quick wash earlier as it is going into Portsmouth Audi tomorrow for a Cambelt replacement (plus water pump) to discover that I have rust at the bottom of the drivers door (where the plastic trim at the bottom screws on).
Then noticed a problem with paint peeling on the...
Just got back from a week on Ventura cruising the Fjords.
I managed to take 1500 pictures in total (mind some are bracketed shots) on my new Sony Alpha 300 DSLR.
The scenery is amazing and a quick review on the Laptop shows that I have managed to get some good pictures, it also shows that you...
Welcome back from the Winter Break.
So who enjoyed the start of the WRC on Dave this weekend (or even in the flesh).
I did even though it looks like a good start for Seb to dominate the season again.
