Hello there - brand new user here! My cable arrived yesterday and I very excitedly started off with a full scan. That's at the end of this post.

I've already gotten the Steering Assist --> Driving Profile Switchover setting changed successfully to "Direct: controlled over threshold value" to try and make the throttle response a bit more even, like described in this video. Haven't gone for a drive yet, but the setting did take. Progress!

There are some things I'd like to change on the car, and I'm having trouble with a couple of them.

1. Disabling the NAR headlight restrictions. Following this video, I went to Controller 55 to try it. I got a "No response from controller" popup:

2. Disabling the "Starting vibration reduction." I've found the setting, but I get ERROR: Channel not available. There are two similar-looking channels, both of which do the same thing. I found a thread here which talks about ot being able to find the settings, but I've found them. They just won't change.

Has anyone run across a way to make these work on a facelift car?

Might also need help with ESC and ASR disablement, but I think I've found a lead on post 70 of this thread on vwvortex.

Really cool software, I can tell it's going to be quite a time sink for me to go out there and play with stuff :)

Welcome to the forum!

for the headlight tweak, your car does not have a (55 - Headlight Range) module. the functions of the Headlight Range controller are now handled by the (4B - Multifunc. Module)

Although I am unsure of which bits control the Region Restriction on the 4B module off the top of my head, It ishould be documented in the Long Coding Helper

Thanks! I have to admit that I'm having a hard time staying productive at work today, since the car is right through that door over there.

I think I had a light bulb moment thanks to your response - are the control modules shown in the "Installed" tab the only ones available on the car? That would make a lot of sense. It did seem strange at the time that 55 didn't show up there, but did show up elsewhere, like I had to go chase it down.

Yes, providing the vehicle isn't malfunctioning and the Installation list wasn't tampered with, the Installed tab contains all of the modules installed in the vehicle.

P.S. Make sure you create a factory-like condition backup in the event tweaks cause any issues. If you aren't familiar with maps, this should be helpful https://youtu.be/au4FR1FCrHU?list=PLwfzU5uvU-lLGh-SQDOxcS1cdBLYqJP7K

Thanks Dana for the confirmation. That'll help me avoid any more chasing of modules that don't exist on my 2019.

I took a two full backups, in both the default and Raw Hex file formats, zipped all the files up, and stashed them aside for later use. I'm taking screenshots as well, it's an easy way for me to see differences before/after.

Hello there - brand new user here! My cable arrived yesterday and I very excitedly started off with a full scan. That's at the end of this post.
Welcome! Hope you're enjoying your new ride!

There's lots of fun stuff to tweak with VCDS, but be advised...

I've already gotten the Steering Assist --> Driving Profile Switchover setting changed successfully to "Direct: controlled over threshold value" to try and make the throttle response a bit more even, like described in this video. Haven't gone for a drive yet, but the setting did take. Progress!
This one is purely hocus-pocus, some kind of urban legend that just refuses to die. The setting has nothing to do with throttle response and nobody has ever produced evidence it does.

There are some things I'd like to change on the car, and I'm having trouble with a couple of them.

2. Disabling the "Starting vibration reduction." I've found the setting, but I get ERROR: Channel not available. There are two similar-looking channels, both of which do the same thing. I found a thread here which talks about ot being able to find the settings, but I've found them. They just won't change.

Has anyone run across a way to make these work on a facelift car?
Karl: If you will allow me use an Aussie horse-racing colloquialism - I'd bet London-to-a-brick (a "brick" is our slang for a £10 note) that your errant adaptation channel isn't listed in the admap for the hex03 module. If I'm correct, it means that your particular ABS module doesn't have this channel accessible.

Make an admap and test my hypothesis - please

Don

Agree!! This is a "stuff-and-nonsence" tweak. If there is any improvement at all (and I very much doubt that there is), it's marginal at best!!

I’ve just now seen this. I should be able to post both of the requested files sometime tomorrow evening, US time.

You’re all right, BTW. I could sense little to no difference with that driving profile switchover tweak. Glad to hear it’s not my imagination that it didn’t do anything.

Don, you're correct. Here's a link to the admap for channel 03 in raw CSV form. This is factory default, before I made any changes at all.

Before I knew what I was doing, I just went straight in to 03 to look for stuff. At the time, I didn't know that the "Installed" tab in VCDS would stop me looking for things that weren't actually on the car.

That user would be me and yes, I would greatly appreciate it :)
Done. I've got blockmap, adpmap, and adphex forms of the same factory-default scan, so let me know if these don't work.
