Hi,
Did some tests to see if I can change the 3 blinks turn signal to 5 blinks on my Audi Q5 and I would like some professional help after a controller channel maps scan log for finding channel value 3.

The adaption channels of comfort unit 046 with value 3 are the following: (security code 16017)
95
192
214

Will any of the above channels, if value 3 is changed to 5, control the value of blinks, so that we get the 5 blinks tweak when touching briefly the turn signal??

Please advise.
Thanks.

Note:
1. I have done same work with 09 control unit, there are no adaptation channels with value 3. No coding available either.
2. The comfort turn signals are activated at 046 control unit adaptation --- Channel 1,2,3,4 Personalization Key 1,2,3,4 etc Comfort turn signals + 32768 to channels value)

Found two options for changing comfor-blinking of a Q5 on a Dutch Website:


[09-Centr. Elec.]
[Security Access-16]
Enter access code: 20133
[Adaption-10]
[Channel 06] default value is 120

Or

[46-Centr. Conv.]
[Adaption-10]
Search for "Blinkerzyklen"
Value 1-5

Thanks :).
First suggestion seems promising. Will test and report tomorrow. (e.g. double half the value to see what happens)
[09-Centr. Elec.]
[Security Access-16]
Enter access code: 20133
[Adaption-10]
[Channel 06] default value is 120

However checking just now my channel 06 of 09 Cent. Elect the default value I have is 1100: 06,1100,OFF,N/A,N/A,N/A,
I have 120 on the following channels only:
12, 48,49,50,51,52

A dead end???

Second suggestion must be for the Q5 FY (2017). There is no blinker/turn signal control on the drop down adaptation list unfortunately.

Is there any text UNDER the values when you select channel 6?

Channel 6 is Headlight washer delay time
Tested all channels with value 120 (09 cu) changed values and blinks remain 3.

By the way. I did find the site you are referring to, which helped me activate the Highway Light Function of my bi-Xenon which I was trying to discover some days ago. So thumbs up on the site.

Still the 3 blinks to 5 blinks comfort turning signal capability remains a mystery, since my tests do not agree with those.

With audi B8 there is no search capability ??? on 09 - adaptations

Because it's not a UDS module and the channels are numbered rather than named.

Thanks for the explanation. That sorts out my doubt. Just to add an additional information, my comfort unit 046 has latest firmware 0437, and my 09 electronic unit has also latest firmware 0410.
Will conclude that we were not able to modify this adaptation value in order to change the comfort blink from 3 times to 5.

Will have a go of instrument cluster as a final last and only possible solution.

Result: no adaptation channel value of 3 exists.

End of tests.

These channels still were not tested
The adaption channels of comfort unit 046 with value 3 are the following: (security code 16017)
95
192
214

Hi, did anyone find way to change comfort blinker to 5 on Q5 FY 2018?
