    ABS Coding Lost epidemic?

    Is it just me, but my impression is that there have been many more threads recently about lost ABS coding on a whole range of VAG vehicles? Any thoughts as to why this may be? Or is my impression just plain wrong?

    Lost ABS coding surge?

    To me it seems there has been a surge in recent months of requests for a lost ABS coding from many members. This isn't something I can recall seeing requested much over my many previous years as a member here. Does anyone have any reasons/thoughts/comments why there has been this surge in lost...

    SA code for 5Q0-909-144-R?

    SWMBO has a habit of trying to park with the steering wheel nowhere near straight, but once stop-start has kicked in it's almost impossible to turn the steering wheel back to straight so that the steering lock can engage. So I thought in 44 Steering Assist (J500) I'd try to change the...

    HEX-NET won't communicate - VCI Config crashed while updating CB

    After downloading and installing VCDS Beta 18.7.1 I ran Config which said my HEX-NET needed an update from CB 0.4427 to CB 0.4430 so I clicked on update and left it running. After an hour (I was busy doing some DIY) I came back to find that VCI Config was shown as Not Responding and the...

    Link text?

    I can't see an option to show alternative text when I post a link (just link type, protocol and URL), but some manage it e.g. when including a link to how to post an Auto-Scan. So what's the trick?

    I updated to 16.8.2 from 16.8.1. earlier today and then wanted to change some adaptation channels on the 09 BCM of my 2015 Skoda Octavia. The first thing I noticed was that 16.8.2 is MUCH slower, then I noticed that VCDS had crashed. VCDS crashed a total of 3 times before I was able to change...

    MQB Infotainment screen upgrade only?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to use a Discover Pro (8") screen with a Discover (5.6") unit, or in Skoda terms a Columbus screen with an Amundsen unit? Looking at the wiring diagrams it appears that the screens have the same connections, pinouts, etc. But are the signal levels and protocols...

    Is "White Space" Expensive?

    Many posts seem to consist of one huge paragraph with no capitalisation or sentences and no gaps to separate different comments/thoughts. These posts are REALLY difficult to read, sometimes I just don't bother as I get lost on the maze. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE use white space (spaces, newlines...
