Hi I am trying to force a regen on my 3L TDI Audi A6 Allroad, the label file and basic settings are not available. Where could I find these as it is a common engine.

Many thanks

Ben

No luck, tried all the prereqs, soot is below 68g.

Won't accept 10016 code. If I try to use 226 on basic settings it aborts.

Not sure what else to try.

Not sure what does work on this machine. Can't view Measuring Blocks, Basic Functions, Coding, can't regen on my common engine.

Seems like its an expensive code reader.

Why is it that you think you can't view measuring blocks? Without a label file, you're missing the descriptions, but the data should be there.

That's true I can see the data but no idea what it is. That is without trudging back to the house, connecting to the internet searching for a value on a forum that might or might not be the correct one, trudging back and repeating.

Hello,

We do not have a 059-907-401-CDY.clb file to offer in German or English but you might want to make a copy of the existing 059-907-401-CAT1.clb file, drop it into C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS\Labels\User and rename it 059-907-401-CDY.clb

Doing so should allow you to obtain on-car labeling for MVBs 099 - 105 so you can check soot and ash levels.

Running a Pre-label Measuring Block function map, opening it with Notepad and posting the contents (like you did with the scan) here would allow us to see all of the MVB info if you need assistance.

Thanks Dana, will try when I get the car back. What does the number 059-907-401 refer to. I thought the label file should match the part number eg 4F9 910 402?

That's the label file name. You cannot edit the redirect file since it is encrypted but it contains:

REDIRECT,059-907-401-CDY.CLB,4F9-910-402-A ; CDYA (4F)

The German version of VCDS has 059-907-401-CDY.CLB plus several other ... 059-907-401-CAN.CLB

Why not the EN version? You are a different company, can't you make an appointment? It's unfortunate, 9 years old engine and not a label, a disgrace.

You didn't gain anything by encrypting the label, just angry the customers, They can't do your job for you

That's so not true - some other manufacturers of VW diagnostics tools were simply copying the label files that Ross-Tech had invested considerable time, effort and cost developing and including them in their products.

So Ross-Tech took the difficult decision that to protect their business they had to encrypt the label files, and yes they did take into account that it would complicate things for genuine customers (but if the competitors took away the business then there would be no Ross-Tech and no support for everyone).

I must admit this is how I felt. It's not exactly a rare engine in the uk.
I did expect it to be fully supported.

Bear in mind that Ross-Tech have their head office in the US (and offices around the world) so you need to take into account how common vehicles and engines are in the US.

Is that a joke?
I buy a cable for them, just a small amount of money, and if it's not German, do I have to be a Colombo detective?
If the label did not exist at all, but there is and an company is not able to share data of language mutations!

It's very hard to take you seriously when you are "Unverified" and haven't posted a scan from the car in question. But it's probably better than you don't, because if you did, I expect your status would change, and not for the good. ;)

Appears to be the expected behaviour here. Threats and rudeness. We are the ones spending our money in good faith these tools which should work for common cars.
