Hi All ,

I’m needing some help with VCDS …….I’m picking up my new S4 Avant on Thursday and would have liked to have swung by the local ‘Audi Specialist’ to have him change a few of the VCDS settings.

Now , he is a good local mechanic , but not a VCDS expert ………so for my previous two cars (S5 and RS4) , I have provided him with the codes.

I need to know from someone if these codes will work on the new B9 S4 so I don’t waste too much time faffing around ….and waste my money with him !! J

Are there any VCDS experts out there who can help me ?

Here’s what I am looking to do ;

Rear LED’s on all the time when DRL’s are on
Removing seat belt chime
Enabling doors locked/alarm armed sound
One Click Remote opening all doors
Adaptive Break Lights
Stop the After-wipe of windscreen wipers when windscreen washer has been used
Auto Release Brake without Seatbelt On

Here are the codes I have used previously ;


  • ‘Select Control Module’

  • Select ‘09 - Cent. Elect.’

  • Select ‘Coding – 07’

  • Select ‘Long Coding Helper’

  • Select Byte 2

  • Change Bit 7 to 1

Removing seat belt chime;

  • Instruments 17,

  • Coding,

  • Long coding helper,

  • Seat belt warning active active/inactive

Enabling/disabling doors locked/alarm armed sound:

Just make sure you have the latest VCDS/VAG-COM updates installed and check/uncheck the checkbox Anti-Theft-System:

  • Horn Confirmation active in 46 Central Conv

  • Long Coding,

  • Byte 01, Bit 2.

This may require that factory alarm is installed on the car.


  • Module 46

  • central convenience

  • Coding

  • Long coding helper

  • Byte 7

  • Tick bit 3 (locking confirmation (horn) via remote control.

One Click Remote opening all doors ;

  • Go to the central locking module and select coding.

  • The 'soft. coding' figure in the box needs to be increased by 1024 for beep locks, and another 32 for auto-locks at 15MPH.(i.e. if your figure is 14000, you change it to 15024 for beep, 15056 for beep and auto-lock)

  • Make a note of the 'soft. coding' number when you access the module, so you can go back if it goes wrong

Adaptive Break Lights

  • Channel 050: Adaptive Brake Light

  • +1 = Emergency Brake Blinking

After-wipe of windscreen wipers when windscreen washer has been used

• [09 – Cent. Elect.]

• [Coding - 07] -> [Dropdown] -> "x -- 8K1 955 119 -- WWS xxxx" ->

• [Long Coding Helper] -> Byte 1 Bit 3 - 1= Active 0 = Disabled

Auto Release Brake without Seatbelt On;

• This will allow you to move your car and have the brake release without your seatbelt on.

• [53 - Parking Brake]

• [Security Access - 16] (Enter code presented by program)

• [Adaptation - 10] -> Channel 7 change 1 to 0
I think One click remote opening all doors is an MMI option

It is, it was the first thing I did when I got my car
One click remote unlock all doors is definitely a standard option within the MMI on the B9. I'm also sure the emergency brake flash is standard according to the manual.

That is the default setting, you can change it to only unlock the drivers door with one click, or all doors with two...
