I've been adding mods today and realised that we have no comprehensive list of codes on this forum.

So here is the full list (as of right now), they have been checked however I hold no responsibility if you mess up!

I'll keep adding them as new ones are found

Please post any others I've missed or any mistakes and I'll add them to the list.

These have been tested completely on pre-facelift. Most should work on a facelift car however there are a couple that won't or need to be completed a different way.

The only mods that work on the Chorus, Concert or Symphony stereo are the ones that don't use hidden menu options. The hidden menu is not accessible from chorus or symphony stereos.


No idea how to use VCDS? Here is a PDF to get you started -

Guide Here

VCDS for dummies more appropriate?!!

VCDS For Dummies Here!!

More questions about VCDS? Here is a page to answer those questions -

FAQ Here



Most importantly... Enjoy turning on the features Audi didn't want you to have!

Dim LED wink on turn signal for US cars

Instead of complete wink off, there is another mod that comes as stock in Europe. There is an LED dim instead of wink.




Starting with factory setting:


Central Electronics 09


Coding 07


Long Code helper


Byte 02 - Check bit 6 (Side Marker as DRL)





If you have already eliminated the winking, the you will need to go to Byte 03 and undo the modification. In other words, the winking DRL options (Bit 7) will need to remain checked/on as it was in the factory setting.

Come on guys I know they're in the list already :thumbsup:

The links I've posted add extra bits to the coding that you've posted.

The TPMS coding you've posted doesn't show you how to enable the TPMS MMI item, the coding in the link does.

The MMI hidden menu link I've posted shows you how to enable it in both 2G and 3G MMI versions.


Also you missed a bit off the bottom of the 'Enable Audi Drive Select without the buttons' coding.

In MMI hidden menu go to Diag settings, Car menus maske, check 'Charisma' box and go down to Accept changes. Whilst still in the hidden menu go to Diag settings, APK 0x01, 0x0B, 0x0C, check 'Charisma' box and go down to Accept changes.

:cheers:

I'm trying to ensure the codings are all on this page rather than links sending people of all over the place, some like the TPMS is just too long to condense effectively do I've added a link. f there are any mistakes could you post the mistake here so that I can add it to the list above.

Thanks!

One (more or less) central database is the desired ending!

Not sure what a charisteric is or why I would want to change it :) ... what does this mod actually do ?
if you get a message to re-fuel and you check how many miles the car thinks you have left, you can calculate how many liters of fuel you have left in the tank.
this usually does not come out right.
there is always more left over than you think.
with these channels you can adjust the charisteric of the float-element in the tank.
this way, you can come closer to the real left-over fuel / miles.

S5mafia just to say thanks for doing this. As a newbie to VAGCom I've spent hours looking all over for the various mods. I wished at the time that there would be a central repository for all mods VAGCom wise, so thanks again
