Thank you for the info. Is it possible to just swap the DIS screen into my old non-color screen setup?

To all RS3 Facelift owners ;)
Exhaust flap status is now maintained in VCDS 18.5.x Beta version

2018-05-3021_39_44-beivugw.jpg


I did not do a test drive to have a clue what is really documented here. But if this is percentage then some really interesting log driving could be done for finding out by percent which drive select mode how much triggers which flap...

My cable is not supported with 18.5 beta, but should be in the next 18.5+ release, may poke around then if its in a reachable channel with HEX-USB+NET

Hello, I have a problem with my can gateway and I maybe need to make some changes to (19) can gateway. Cause I have vcds 12.12 version, I don't have long coding help for (19) can gateway. Could someone send me some pictures of the long coding help of this? (I mean what every bit refers to) I think long coding help is active on newer versions of vcds. Sorry for my bad english

The cable is not mine. I use a cable of a nearby mechanic. I believe it is a clone cable, but he is not an Audi official mechanic so he does not care.
I can understand your reply, thank you for your time.

Might be a silly question but I hope someone can confirm. I want to try the exhaust valve mod (valves always open) on a 2018 S3. I assume that I'm still able to do this with OBDEleven?

You sure are! See my guide below.

Ok so I received the device today. Paired it via Bluetooth. Ignition is turned on in the car, I hit connect and it’s just stuck at “Connecting” for about 20mins. I’m assuming this isn’t normal? Anyone had this trouble before?

I’m guessing it maybe the cheapo android phone I had laying around that I’m using. Although it is running Android 7.

Data connection on the phone?

Yep. Not sure if it makes a difference but it was a wifi hotspot from my iPhones 4g connection.
Just needs a data connect of some sort I found when testing it. Other than that I cannot assist as once I got it working the first change / tweak I tested failed so I put it back in its box and have not seen it since lol.

Not the right thread but since you're discussion connections, any idea how to get a licence for traffic data on google maps? Expired on my vehicle

Well, it turned out my issue was the phone that I was using. Whilst the Dev's obviously support the Android version I have, the screen size was too small. I kept getting this screen pop up and didn't know what to do as it let me select my car but I couldn't get out of the pop-up screen after or scroll up and down so I just pressed 'Back' and it just returns to the constant 'Connecting...' circle. I got my Sisters Samsung Galaxy and could then see some 'Ok', 'Cancel' buttons!

The rest worked fine from there.

Hey, is it possible to adjust when flaps are going to open instead of keeping them open permanently? E.g at 1500rpm instead of 3000rpm.

Nope, VCDS and alike = Open or closed. For anything else you would need remap as the parameters are in firmware.

Won’t work without prerequisite hardware being retrofitted.

Fitting different size wheels can affect a vehicle speedo. In many vehicles there is coding in order to compensate for this however no one has really tested / played with this as yet, well not that have published any results anyway.

Am 70% there. Slow process and there is more than coding involved, wiring to. No ETA

Hi folks.

Is there anyway that I can have my front and rear DRLs come on when unlocking my car during the day via VCDS?

I already have them CH/LH set up, but would like them to come on every time ( during daytime also )

Apologies if this has already been discussed.

Cheers

Do you have a lichtsensor? It is possible but it takes some channel changes in 09.

Does anyone know the proper way of doing the steering angle basic settings in module 44 Steering Assistance?

This is the last error I'm trying to clear out after my engine swap, aka very dead battery.

Make sure the car has no other faults. Use vcds, vcp or odis to calibrate steering angle. Use security access 19249 and then basic settings.

And then do this

Take it to a parking lot for the space. Can be done on a standard road/street

- make sure steering wheel is center
- turn wheel more than 30 degrees Left, then center, then more then 30 to right.
- drive straight forward for under 20km/h then stop and turn the wheel again.

So I tried this, however, there are databus error issues which I cannot clear.

When I try doing basic settings in obd11 or vcd, they both start, but nothing happens. I check the angle the car sees to 0° but there is no way to "set" the value, only to stop the basic setting test

I then try and clear fault and same fault is present.

Here are remaining errors which seem directly related to module 44.

First start the basic settings. Let it run and do the procedure.

If you find someone with Odis, then it's only a matter of few minutes for succesfull calibration.

Made an error.

In stead of more then 30 degrees, turn the wheel all the way to the lock.

- Start basic settings, center wheel, turn wheel completely to the Left (Till no further) then all the way to the right and then center it.
