Hello all, I'm new to the Ross-Tech forums. Just received my HEX-V2 interface and have been having a look around. I noticed many of the modules require a Security Access code. I know I can find some of those already discovered out there, but it says on Ross-Tech's website that "Valid Login codes can be found in the Factory Repair Manual for your car".

http://www.ross-tech.com/vcds/tour/securityaccess.php

I have a 2017 Audi S3 and I've downloaded the factory repair manuals from erWin, but I cannot find those codes anywhere in the manuals. I have them all as PDFs so I can search for the terms, but I haven't found them yet searching for things like "security", "code", "login". What should I be looking for in the manual so that I can find these codes?

FWIW here's an Auto-Scan from my car:

The suggestion that those are in factory repair manuals applies to older cars. For the newer cars, all those goodies are hidden away in the code and data for the factory scan tool.

Is there something specific you're trying to accomplish on this car that you believe requires a security access code?

Dave: if I can add to Uwe's sage advice, You will find reference to SA s on the web where the VCDS community is aware of these codes. I don't know how new SA s are found (they are as rare as rocking-horse sh#t) -I suspect that some are discovered using tools like VCP (less so these days), others might be disclosed by VAG boffins and divine revelation might also be involved!

In any event, your s3 (very nice! my bucket-list car) is fortunate to be built on a MQB platform. It therefore shares many features with other MQB platform vehicles - like my more pedestrian Golf mk7. This includes SA s.

In my preambles across the web, I've thieved many SA s and I've created a a central repository (suppository?) for these MQB codes HERE. Try these, but be aware that the control modules in your s3 (very nice! my bucket-list car) get very cranky if you input a wrong SA. In these instances, the modules spit-the-dummy and they refuse to accept a new SA for a period of time that is measured with the ignition turned-on!

Don

PS: As a quid-pro-quo for access to my post, you are automatically obligated to contribute to the list if you are fortunate enough to find a new SA. Hope you take this responsibility seriously !!;)

Thank you both for the info.

I was looking for the Security Access code for the 02-Auto Trans module to see if there was a way to turn on the gear display while the car was in drive, and I will definitely contribute to that great list if I find it (thanks for posting that)! The info I have found so far indicates that's the module I need access to, but if that's not the case I'd be happy for a nudge in the right direction.

Dave: I note that the code-string on your hex02 module is the venerable hex0014!! This is exactly the code-string on my hex02 module that does show the gear number on the MFD.

I'm aware that there is a gear number display tweak for newer hex02 modules with longer code-strings (i.e. hex010200000C000000000000000000000000000000 & hex00348), but AFAIK the fix for older modules lies in a firware change - alas something that is beyond the reach of even the brilliant HEX-V2!!

Thanks, that's very helpful to know. I was curious about the much shorter code string, and that was part of why I was looking for the Security Access code. I didn't know if that was all it would let me see without security access. I had seen some information on how to do it through the 02 module for another model and wanted to poke around to see if I had the same setting. Sounds like I don't! :-)
