    Hi, I wonder if anyone can answer a question.

    I picked up a 2015 A3 S Line about a month ago, it's got rear parking sensors (factory fitted) that I can control sound level/pitch etc.

    When I put the car in reverse I don't get any visual display on my MMI screen, is that right?

    TIA

    Yes could be - you only get the display with parking system plus as far as I'm aware - that includes front sensors too.

    The good news is that it's a 30 second VCDS tweak if you can find someone nearby to activate it for you.

    Ahhhh ok, Thanks Rob2k68.

    The only thing that puts me off about that, is getting some dodge pot that doesn't actually know what he/she is doing :(

    Welcome over to ASN Matt. Hope you're enjoying the A3?

    The guys on here who do the VCDS stuff tend to be superb. Ask the question. Someone will be close to you.

    It's a pretty straight forward VCDS tweak to be fair.

    Think this is it

    1. select STG 10 (parking aid)
    2. STG access authorization - Select function 16
    3. Enter access code 71679
    4. STG coding -> Select function 07
    5. Select Byte 2
    6. Bit 0 - optical display Parking Sensors - Activate

    Absolutely loving it! The S Tronic box is just sublime. My previous car was an Insignia 160 CDTI auto and the box was (what I thought) ok, until I'd tried the Audi.

    I've been looking at the VCDS mods thread and some of the things done are pretty amazing, some very talented people, that's for sure.

    I've just joined a FB group for the same thing, to try and find someone local, if I can find someone on here that would be better.

    HAHA, you may as well have been talking in Tagalog ;)

    Hi and welcome to the forums, Rob got it spot on ;)

    I have park system plus, I've just taken this so you can see what it does.

    I reverse right up to the house against the hedge, red lines come on when you get the fast and long bleeps 'STOP' lol, obviously the lines show where an object is:

    It can be done haha... People here have done it

    I believe if you get front and rear then you get the display. The only time you need VCDS is to get the display if you only have rear sensors

    Should be possible as people here have managed it

    +1 for the MY16 sportback with rear sensors only, easy mod if you follow the sticky.

    Some people have reported issues with getting this to work on mid 2015 cars onwards. Not had any issues when working on these cars myself and again activated beeps on both a late 2015 and a 2016 car today while at the carwash :)

    Check the VCDS PDF linked in my signature for more information. Suggest checking out the VCDS thread for more information also.

    lol was a strange one today. First time back at this carwash after a while and there were 2 other 8V drivers there. Got talking, as one was a fully loaded S3, and then got modding :)

    This was in there also but I had no time to plug into it :(

    DJ Alix,
    Must admit that I have been unable to do this which is really annoying as a really good feature . Will get out and give it another try based on your response and info provided.

    This is how I code it:

    1. Doors closed and not locked, all windows closed
    2. Ignition in 1st / accessory position
    3. Make sure the MMI is not in CAR mode
    4. Connect via VCDS
    5. 09 - Cent Elect
    6. Security Access - 16 and enter code 31347
    7. Adaptations - 10
    8. Change (2) - Acknowledgement Signals - Akustische Rueckmeldung Verriegeln = Active
    9. Change (1) - Acknowledgement Signals - Akustische Rueckmeldung entriegen = Active
    10. Change (7) - Acknowledgement signals-Menuesteuerung akustische Rueckmeldung= Active
    11. Exit VCDS
    12. Three finger reset the MMI
    13. Once MMI is back up turn off ignition and remove the key for 5 mins
    14. Ignition in 1st / accessory position
    15. Via the MMI go to Menu > Car > Systems > Vehicle Settings > Central Locking Menu > Tone when Locking = tick the box to activate Tone when Locking and exit the menu
    16. Ignition off
    17. Exit car and lock to test
    If you have been trying to get this working already make sure you reset the needed channels to not active and three finger reset the MMI before doing the above.

    Most dealers use aftermarket kits which do not interface with the car as such. If you can change the volume and frequency of the beeps via the MMI then then a Visual Display should be possible. If you have no MMI control then I am afraid no.
