VAGCOM / VCDS Help - List of users willing to help here !

Hi guys!

Bought Audi Q7 LE 2015 last week and was wandering a noob question. Will VCDs void the car manufacturers warranty?

Also any active member that helps with VCDS in PERTH?

Thank you

Hey mate,
depends on what mods you make. Basic stuff i don't see any issues. I have had mine at Audi and they had no issue.

Anyway i am happy to help with programming .
What do you want done ?

Thanks for the prompt reply NVRENUF

As I'm new, I'm searching for few things such as

1/ VIM - video in motion
2/ Door lock chime
3/ Auto windows close when doors lock [if available]

and don't mind some suggestions regarding any other :)

Cheers

edit: happy to come where necessary

I am located in Stirling.
I have done VIM on my car,no problems.

Auto window close on door lock might be annoying if you want to leave windows open and lock car.
you should have press and hold lock button already to wind up windows same as opening .

door lock chime what is this for ?

When lock the door, I get visual confirmation but would like to have audible confirmation

"want to leave windows open and lock car" really.....I never trust leaving my windows open :p)


Edit: It seems like I have hijacked this thread... I'll PM NVRENUF

Anybody in the Blue Mountains area with a VCDS and cable to lend or to help? Happy to travel a bit if need be. I want to activate my MMI's hidden menu and the aux-in so it should be a reasonably quick job. I'm on the lookout for a genuine Ross Tech cable as well but that could take a bit longer.

Thanks to Cristian over the weekend. Got my hidden menus turned on, but unfortunately my car doesn't have the aux-in option. So looks like it'll be AMI retrofit or Dension route.
 
Anyone near The Hills area in Sydney have a VAGCOM cable I could utilise? I would like to do a quick code scan, allow VIM, adjust DRL levels (is that possible?) and whatever else may be useful in everyday use. Happy to pay for your time and effort or bring you a 6 pack if you prefer it that way.
 
Hi, I'm in Lindfield and North Sydney, could anyone help me with doing the regen on my DPF please? Have been quoted $400 by a garage to do it, waiting for a price from Audi. Looked into it and it seems that with the cable/laptop/firmware it can be kicked off and finished in about 45 mins.
Happy to make a beer contribution or otherwise :)
 
Hi guys,

I am a new owner of a 2009 Audi A4 B8 3.2L Quattro. I live in Melbourne, South East/Bayside area.

I really need some help from someone who owns a VAGCOM. I need to reset my Throttle Body Alignment, because the throttle response in my car is atrocious, it hesitates too much and then suddenly kicks in with power making the whole driving experience unpleasant. I read that resetting the Throttle Body Alignment via VAGCOM noticeably improves the throttle responsiveness.

I also need to unlock my DVD navigation to be able to eject the Nav DVD that's already in there.

Please let me know if anyone could either help with these settings or could lend me their VAGCOM.

Thanks in advance!
 
Hey Gents
just a noob one
want to get of those VAGs
what should I go with ?
never had 1 before though

A6 C7 2014 SLine 3.0TID
 
Hex-CAN & USB.

Unless you want to go fancy - as they appear to have a "wifi" wireless one..

At $349 USD it will seem steep with the conversion. However, it's worth it's weight in gold.

No longer do I fear disconnecting my battery and triggering the Airbag light. You can also do other cool things, like knowing everything that is going on with your car :)
 
Another VAG forum has stated that the HEX CAN USB cable, that most of us have, will not be supported beyond 2017 models.

Don't know if that's true or not, but if I were looking to buy one at the moment I would most certainly only be considering the wifi version.

As stated. Worth its weight in gold. Would not hesitate to spend $400 US. Worth every cent!
 
Better off buying the ross tech cable/dongle through the Australian distributor. They are on sale at the moment for $512.
 
Anyone on the Gold Coast that would be kind enough to get my TT out of "service" mode on the dash?
i just changed my oil yesterday and cannot get rid of the annoying message!
 
Hi Brisbane members, I PM'd DCR directly but I'm guessing he hasnt seen the message, so publicly I am chasing someone in brissy with VCDS / Vagcom setup to help me with the following:

Im looking to put a set of high output LED reverse lights in my B8 A4 3.0TDI Quattro. Although they have inbuilt resistors I expect that the cars computer will through the error light. I've read elsewhere it is a fairly fast fix using VCDS.

If you think this is something you could help out with I'm happy to pay with a carton of beer or what you think is reasonable.

Shoot me a text or reply on here my number is 0402 745 596

This is the first time ive used the forum in forever so a text message would be best.

Cheers, John
 
I am sure you will find someone to help, and it is always good to run a scan to see what your car has to say.

However, I highly doubt you need VCDS to make a change to the lights. The warning light should go away as long as you have suitable LED replacements with resistors.
Consider the case when a light bulb blows, and a mum and dad type owner replaces the globe.. Should this warrant a trip to the dealer? No, it should be at the user level.

I can't speak for B8s personally, but my B7 raises the error on LEDs but it goes away when a proper globe is installed (or a LED with resistor).. I would bet the house that the B8 would be the same.

Cheers, I was just anticipating the fault code as many guys in the US were still having error codes. The bulbs I have ordered have inbuilt resistors, however I heard error codes are still happening for most people.

Time will tell I guess, they should be arriving shortly!
