    The only thing I can think of is that there's a region specific part to it? That's a different message than I get on my car if it decides it can't read a traffic sign (which has it from factory), so maybe it's looking for a US style sign or something? Just a thought and I've done no coding so don't know if that's even an option within it...

    You’s have been for a drive right? That appears on mine until the camera either detects a sign or the speed limit from the maps takes over.

    Does it require navigation plus as Kufatec seem to imply?
    • only for vehicles with PR-No .: QK1 and 9S7, 9S8
    • For vehicles with PR No .: 9S5 no display in FIS possible
    • for vehicles without navigation plus (PR no .: 7UG) only limited operation possible. Due to the lack of Navidaten be partially z. B. no place signs and tempo zones recognized
    HazzyDayz state this:
    Please note: Only Suitable for models with PR-QK1 Driver Assist Camera and Colour DIS.

    Hi,

    I have followed all the active lane assist instructions and i get a fault with audi pre sense when i select
    • Set Heading Control Config to 'heading_control
    I have left the car overnight and i still get an active lane assist fault
    And audi pre sense fault when i turn the ignition on.

    I have followed the steps multiple times but still get the errors.

    The mmi has been reset and active lane assist is shown in mmi but is greyed out.

    I have a fault code C10ACF2 in steering
    And fault code U101400 control module incorrectly coded

    Any ideas or help appreciated.

    @vibeup did you flash the camera for traffic sign display?

    @Paul070977 did you coded EFP and APS?

    I downloaded the OBDEleven app and it suggests that video in motion isn't possible on newer software is this true?

    I would like the following options,

    Video in motion
    Longer hands free
    Longer traffic jam assist before it asks to reset again

    My car is a December 2017 model A4

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if its possible in VCDS to always have the rear LEDs on along with the front DRLs as standard?

    Thanks. Will the VCDS coding below work for the B9 (got it from B8 forum):

    Tailights active as DRL's
    [09 – Cent. Elect.]
    [Coding - 07] -> [Long Coding Helper] -> Byte 2: Bit 7 - (1 = active)

    LEDs remain at full brightness with parking lights
    [09 – Cent. Elect.]
    [Coding - 07] -> [Long Coding Helper] -> Byte 3: Bit 2 - (1 = active)

    No

    For the B9 you need to set Byte 2 - bit 3 for DRL rear.

    Byte 2 - bit 1 = DRl menu

    Does anyone know why VCDS isn't able to read some modules on my B9 (eg Module, 46, module 35)? No issue reading module 08 for example. I'm using the latest fully registered version 18.2.1 on a Windows 10 64 bit laptop.

    Only Hex-net versions of VCDS cables can fully access the latest models (like the B9. F5 etc)

    ...you mean "Hex" I think as both the Hex Net (Wifi) and Hex V2 (cabled) interfaces will work with no issues. Only reason to purchase a Hex Net interface at the moment is for Wifi capability / VCDS Mobile, or because you need to fully talk with Lamborghini's.

    Eh no...

    The previous version was Hex-CAN. The new versions are called Hex-NET. Both the wifi or cabled are hex-net

    Nope...

    Hex net and hex v2 are the new interfaces, both work with all cars bar lambo’s, which need a hex net for full compatibility. I use both daily and both work fine on B9’s and alike.

    Really...thats exactly the same what im saying. The new interface protocol / connection is called Hex-NET, where the previous was Hex-CAN. With the new versions you also have experimental coding. Its not just the name but the whole interface / software behind it.

    Read your own post! Again a weird response....

    I'm using tools like vcds for longer then 10 years now...also on a daily basis.

    Now you just correcting yourself as you posted originally that hex net was the only B9 / MLBevo compatible interface. The hex V2 is also, which is not a “NET”.

    The main reason for my jumping in on this conversation is that some people might have taken your advise as gospel and purchased the more expensive interface when in fact they could have purchased the lower cost option instead.

    I said versions....plural. I think that we both mean the same, but we have different meanings for "hex-net" . For me both cables are the same. You see the name as the difference.

    Lets leave it like this.

    Ross-tech sells the following:

    -Hex-net
    -Hex v2

    These are their names, and although mostly the same the “net” has more capabilities. Please stop giving incorrect advice.

    The only difference is that "net" has more connection capabilities. The software part is the same.

    Again you stick with the "names" and i use the software part. So not incorrect advise and please stop like you know everything..........

    Am sorry but you said only hex net supports the B9, face it you are wrong! The back end maybe the same but the interface is not. People taking your your advice might have purchased a £600 hex net Interface as a result when in fact all they need is a v2 £400 one (pricing not exact).

    You may have 10year plus experience but you really need to think before you offer advise on a public forum.

    Ok DJALIX, you are right. Ok?

    Maybe the difference is that we use on the mainland the same names for the software/interfaces and in the UK not.

    Really....you are saying that to me? Like you wanted to correct me yesterday with VCP + MLBEVO + Disable startstop? Then you should also think and know the basis before correcting someone.

    Actually no, Ross Tech invented the naming conventions as it’s thier product and they are based in the USA I believe... so regions have nothing to do with it. The tools maybe “the same but different” but the difference is actually pretty substantial, especially on the price.

    This is a public forum, very very very respected as the community here do not mess about and look for facts. Someone viewing your advice, although not totally incorrect, could have wasted money for no good reason. Simple, that’s it... no more no less.

    As for the Start / Stop comment, no games and not trying to show you up. I simply posted what was in the official documentation for the application in question. You actually showed me something that I had missed, mainly because the VCP update / release notes are never detailed and they are too busy fighting VW Group in an IP court battle at the moment to actually inform their customers of new features etc. Have tested, it works, happy days and thanks.

    Ok, let’s get this sorted. This is a public forum and as @DJAlix has pointed out we are well known for the accuracy of the information that we have freely available to our members. This information must be correct as other members may purchase software that is above their requirements at an extra expense to them and that is not ideal. To have Odis software in your signature you have to be dealer certified and also be a site sponsor. The information you may give a member may not be 100% accurate and can cause damage to a members car and none of this is what we want to occur, If you wish to be on the forums vcds map fill in the details on the link below. On receipt of the application you will be added to the vcds map and will have the forums official vcds banner applied below your avatar. If you wish to be carrying Odis in your signature you must be a site sponsor. Please update your signature by removing Odis and vcp details. Feel free to contact me by PM if you disagree with any of the above.

    @DJAlix
    I believe you are located in London, do you have any plans to visit N England/Scotland on a VCDS coding tour? I say this as I've almost given up doing the coding myself on VCDS on an el-cheapo ebay kit and I suspect most/all of the issues are down to the cheap cable. What did I expect for £70? lol On the other hand spending £400+ just on a cable is way overkill for me as I only need a few mods done and probably won't touch it again ever wrt VCDS.

    Re: enabling audio chirping when locking/unlocking car, can this be done through central electric module 09 (which I can access) instead of module 46, which i cannot access? If it can be done via module 09, what are the settings needed?

    I'm based in Inverness, however happy to travel to anywhere in Scotland (including Bonnybridge) and parts of N England it it means getting my car coded by someone who knows what they're doing, instead of just your average VAG technician. Will you be visiting Bonnybridge personally or can you recommend someone there?

    I provide support services to a rather big performance company there. I can see if I can arrange for them to host a remote session between myself and your car if you like....
