Hi All,

Glad to be here finally after thinking about getting this software for a few years!

I have bought a Hex-V2 and have downloaded the newest VCDS software (19.6.1?) from the RT website. I have also updated the firmware and registered with RT. So hopefully, I'm good to start using VCDS and the Hex-V2.


My questions are:
1. Why are some boxes not available to me in the VCDS software. For example, there are 4 boxes for 'Engine' under 'drivetrain' but I can only click on 01-Engine - the others throw up a ' not found' message. Similarly, 'measuring blocks' using 01-engine is not available to me ???

2. The videos in the Wiki (e.g. for Throttle Body Alignment) show a much older software version of VCDS. As such, when I try and do the same steps using the current software, they look nothing alike. In the video, the very first step in the TB alignment shows 01-Engine / measuring blocks. I do not have the same pages . For example, there are no group boxes anywhere? So how do I check the battery voltage first - measuring value block group 004 ? Since measuring blocks are not available (as above), how and where do I enter values in group boxes ???

3. How can I find out my engine variant? My car is a 2018 Audi S5 coupe. UDS is displayed in the comm status box so therefore I presume my car uses the UDS protocol?

4. How do I code to release the rear electronic brake so I can change the rear rotors and pads?

5. Ditto for headlight adjustment - I need to raise them. Is there a page with coding on the forums or the wiki?


Thanks in advance. I hope this thread is in the right place.

Welcome to the forum. Let's see if I can be of some help.

1. Why are some boxes not available to me in the VCDS software. For example, there are 4 boxes for 'Engine' under 'drivetrain' but I can only click on 01-Engine - the others throw up a ' not found' message. Similarly, 'measuring blocks' using 01-engine is not available to me ???
Boxes not available to you are items that are not installed in your car. Not much sense showing stuff that is not there. Will likely confuse the issues.

2. The videos in the Wiki (e.g. for Throttle Body Alignment) show a much older software version of VCDS. As such, when I try and do the same steps using the current software, they look nothing alike. In the video, the very first step in the TB alignment shows 01-Engine / measuring blocks. I do not have the same pages . For example, there are no group boxes anywhere? So how do I check the battery voltage first - measuring value block group 004 ? Since measuring blocks are not available (as above), how and where do I enter values in group boxes ???
Right. Your car is using all UDS functionality. When you go to Basic Settings or to Adaptations, there are drop down boxes with the information and procedures. You did take a look at the online manual - right?



3. How can I find out my engine variant? My car is a 2018 Audi S5 coupe. UDS is displayed in the comm status box so therefore I presume my car uses the UDS protocol?
Correct. Your car uses UDS. The engine code is normally stamped on the engine itself. Someone posted a photo of that... hmm.. where is it... I can't find it at the moment... perhaps others will come along to help.

Thanks for the quick reply Bruce

Noted on the shaded out boxes - just wanted to make sure it wasn't a fault

UDS - got it. I didn't see the online manual - thanks that's helpful. I do have some PDFs from various audi forums with help on how to do things but this manual should help a great deal.

Thanks for the engine variant code also.

So do the drop down boxes in the new VCDS software take the place of the measuring block group numbers in the older version ?

Yes, pretty much.

On your engine, TBA should be this Basic Setting:
IDE00754 -- Test of throttle valve adaptation

However, I doubt this will cure the MAP/MAF <-> Throttle Position Correlation faults.

As for the EPB, have a look here:
http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/Audi_A4_(8R/8K)_Parking_Brake_EPB-4

Headlight adjustment: Since your car doesn't have a separate headlight range module, I believe this page is applicable:

Thanks for the info.

I'm going to take the MAP sensors off and clean them. I'm also going to clean out the TB. I'm hoping that will do the job? If not, what else should I look at?

Thanks for the EPB and the Headlight links.

Excellent help and service on this forum guys, I must say

At that point, I would be looking at actual MAP and MAF values to see if they're reasonable. Something somewhere is slightly out of whack; not enough for the ECU to decide the sensor is bad, but enough to throw off a cross-check of readings.

Do you suggest just getting new sensors?
If not, how do I determine what the MAP values should be (there's no MAF in this car) - I don't have repair manual?

With the engine off the MAP should read atmospheric pressure (you can look this value up online for where you are located). This is a good starting check.
When idling the pressure usually drops below atmospheric pressure.

Great - thanks. I'll try that first
