    A8 2015 - VCDS 'SRI option' Display Output queries ...

    The box below shows a [slightly edited for space reasons] display from the first stage of the SRI option on the VCDS front menu from my 2015 A8 in the UK. I use this to see what the service state is and then press 'Cancel', so I don't change anything. Thursday,06,August,2020,20:23:52:22069...

    Request for change - SRI value table output - A8 D4 [and others] ...

    The VCDS SRI 'button' is a useful tool between services, as you can select it, watch the Instrument panel channel values being read quickly and seeing the table of values displayed. Then you cancel the reset you've invoked, but you have a text log of the value table, I believe, in the Debug...

    A8 2016 - Can I alter individual SRI fields in the cluster? ...

    I've tried searching but can't find any specifics about using VCDS to alter specific fields in the instrument cluster that are used for Service alerts. Specifically, I'd like to alter the "IDE03349-FIX: Max. distance until next mileage-related inspection" field as it seems to be set incorrectly...

    Edited to add VCDS interface used. Just [Re]run the Optical Bus Scan against my recently acquired A8 D4 2016 with my Hex+CAN USB interface. As before, it almost finishes [green bar almost at the end] when I get the Windows 'box' saying: "Please Upgrade to a current Ross Tech Interface - Only...

    Can I reset an ECU to 'new' condition? ...

    I'm about to replace the Battery Management ECU - 4E0 915 181 - on my 2005 D3 A8 with a newer second hand unit with a later level of firmware. Obviously this will have the battery logs of the car from which it was removed. I know I can do a 'sort of' clear by changing the battery serial...

    Guys; I've just discovered that although registered, I can't post to the 'How To's and Tips' forum to ask a 'How To' question. Is this intentional? Julian

    A8 D3 2005 - Irritating Control Head Reset - Incomplete Adaptation values ...

    Guys; I've had a few 'battery flats' on my 2005 A8 D3, but the recent one, for some reason, reset my Control Head [CH] to some sort of factory default! When I started the car again, the MMI and DIS text were in German [it's normally UK English:)] and I'd lost most of my options off the Car...

    A8 D3 - Radio ECU - failure to communicate ...

    I was running VCDS Autoscan on my A8 using latest Beta using my usual 'Core Duo' laptop. I'd run an Autoscan about 10 minutes earlier, without any Radio ECU issue and I'd then run an Optical Bus scan, which was also OK. [No log - see other thread :D] I'd cleared all the faults that were...

    Are Debug=1024 files appended or overwritten? ...

    Guys; I had cause to run some Debug=1024 runs for you recently and assumed that the file names were timestamped. As I had several runs I thought there would be several sets of Debug-x files, somehow identifying each run, but when I finished, there were only one set of files. As I couldn't...

    MOST optical bus scans - would you consider auto logging them? ...

    Guys; I had cause to run the MOST optical bus scan on my D3 A8 today but I forgot to save the scan while I was conencted to the car. It was OK but I would have liked to save the results in my car history log. Could you please consider automatically logging Optical scans the same way that you...

    And another strange issue on a different car with the latest Beta! Ran an Autoscan earlier today on my friend's Skoda Fabia as he had the ABS light permanently on in the instrument panel. I've only just fully analysed the log and noticed that one of the ECUs [46 Central Convenience] is...

    SRI Logs - mark non-changing fields? ...

    Just been thinking; might it be useful to all of us who read VCDS SRI logs if VCDS marks [with an *] the Channels in the Instrument Panel that are 'set once' and left unchanged as opposed to the fields that are changed or slowly increased? For example: Channel Description...

    Does anyone who looks after various Audi vehicles have any experience of whether the A8 [D3] and A6 [4F] battery manager ECUs are compatible? Or perhaps someone has access to an A8 and an A6 and can quickly swap an A6 one to see if it works in an A8? That is; Can I use an A6 ECU [part number...

    Due to problems with my battery discharging over a few days without use, I've been looking in more detail than usual at the measurement block values of my 2005 A8 D3's Battery Manager ECU and I note that some of the Group Block values I can see [and print] have no descriptions against them.

    I've had my VCDS HEX-CAN-USB cable for a while but after installing VCDS 17.1 on my WIn 7 laptop this morning and scanning my A8, I experienced two separate licencing issues which I'd never seen before. 1) I Autoscanned my D3 A8 and it halted when reading ECU 4F with a window labelled "VCDS...
