need the security code, the old std doesn't work....dhpress: hmm........ I had read somewhere that following Trump's elevation to POTUS that America had adopted neo-liberal values (by which I mean - minimal Government intervention) for everything in the country! Clearly I've been mis-informed: our RoW model cars down here in the very deep south don't have this form of nanny-ware - which is why we can do this:
Also, if I can add to Uwe's response (remember my penchant for wanting to steal his thunder), my RoW model mk7 has an interesting entry in the long-coding-helper-screen for Byte 6 of the Engine module (@ address hex01)
As I have said above and notwithstanding Bit 2, we don't have speed limit protection down-under (where women glow and men chunder) - this is confirmed by the setting in the screen-shot. So, I have never had a need to play with these settings.
As a comparison, I've pulled the following details from a 2017 Golf Variant, 1.8T CXBB that Jef posted on the unbroken-car reference thread HERE - which I assume is an NAR model.
If I parse the coding for this module through my handy-dandy code-string to hex/binary converter, I get the following:Code:
Address 01: Engine (J623-CXBB) Labels:. 06K-907-425-V1.clb Part No SW: 8V0 906 264 L HW: 06K 907 425 B Component: 1.8l R4 TFSI H13 0002 Revision: --H13--- Coding: 311D00322466002F1000 Shop #: WSC 00066 790 00064 ASAM Dataset: EV_ECM18TFS0208V0906264L 001003 ROD: EV_ECM18TFS0208V0906264L.rod VCID: C5CD524244D03163B4-8090 No fault code found. Readiness: 1010 0101
Now-while I acknowledge that my RoW Golf mk7 has a different engine module, notice the hex/binary value for Byte 6 on Jef's NAR Golf Variant.Code:
Byte Hex Binary 0 31 00110001 1 1D 00011101 2 00 00000000 3 32 00110010 4 24 00100100 5 66 01100110 [B][COLOR="#0000FF"]6 00 00000000[/COLOR][/B] 7 2F 00101111 8 10 00010000 9 00 00000000
I assume that the software switches for speed limiters that are available on (some/most?) RoW cars are embedded in module firmware in (most/all?) NAR cars - thereby making them less accessible to Americans.
IMHO, it's an interesting comparison of how different countries manage this matter - I think!
I have absolutely no doubt that American drivers are as competent as their counterparts in RoW countries - but could it be that the simple act of you guys driving on the "wrong" side of the road makes your NAR cars inherently more dangerous at high speed? Only joking - it's a rhetorical question
^^ if your car has a BCM with a non-zero code-string, try THIS and don't forget to do the "in-car" procedure!can the counter blink with DRLs tweak be done on my car?
I was able to fix the blinks and get them to a max of 5, I was hoping for the other hack, the drl/blinker alternating when the emergency flasher are on. Thx
i know it seems like forever ago....but this worked flawlessly, thx again^^^not surprisingly, the tweak is done on the Instrument module @ address hex17 - go to the long coding helper screen and navigate to Byte 1. You should see a descriptor on Bit 0 referring to "Staging" in the "yellow" screen, or "Needle sweep" in the normal screen. Set this software switch
