Glad you sorted it out!
a sort of "do you accept the terms and conditions of these instructions" kind of thing!Sure, but at that point I have some idea that the user is responsible and knows what he's doing, rather than being someone who's just poking around with, "I wonder what this button does?" Hence I prefer this facility to remain undocumented and un-obvious, and if someone has a legitimate use for it, they must ask.
It has been used for tweaking features since the very beginning. The very first version was very popular among B5 A4/S4 owners for coding windows up/down with remote, a feature that Audi didn't trust US customers with.What ever happened to utilizing VCDS for diagnosing and repairing (that's when you do something with a wrench/tool) your own vehicle!
In the many years I've owned VCDS I estimate I've used it in the ratio 90:10 tweaking to diagnosing on my vehicles and those of other VAG owners.What ever happened to utilizing VCDS for diagnosing and repairing (that's when you do something with a wrench/tool) your own vehicle!
Those counters are in the interface itself. The values shown on a particular computer will be updated when you use the interface on that computer.Is there a way to sync those numbers or each laptop keep it s own counter @Uwe ?
SWAP = Soft Ware As Product. I think this means you're supposed to pay VW for a valid code.Or do you have some other calculator to calculate the FEC code?
Yes, dealer, that is the last solution, which is not certain anyway...
In my opinion, it won't even work, as far as I can tell, those who tried it either from VCDS or OBDleven, or according to the video in 1 post, already had a cracked radio.
Activation with this document can only done at vw dealerHi All.
Have been reading this with interest, am about to purchase GENUINE document to activate Carplay/Anroid Auto and Mirrorlink on our 2017 VW Touran 2.0L SE, which I have found at arround £60.00 plus cheaper than main dealer, our vehicle has MIB2 STD - 3Q0 035 874B, with an upgrade to 8 inch screen 5G0 919 606 through VCDS in 2020.
Have also completed activation of various features with VCDS, including Retrofit of Fog Lights, will be fitting Door Lights, which I already have, to get rid of nasty plastic reflectors.
I put in a search about how to go about it when the document arrives and came across this thread , I have Genuine Ross Tech HEX V2, also OBDEleven.
If anyone can advise, it would be GREAT.
Thank You Ross Tech and OBDEleven, could not have done it without you.
I leave this for your deliberation.
I noticed my car's CAN Gateway (address 0x19) also has that SWAP adaptation for entering FeC code, at the first glance, the one in the module 0x5F is empty and the one in 0x19 contains a long hex string. Is the one in the gateway useful for anything or is this just another (unknown) quirk of VAG cars? Maybe the code you input into 0x5F is transferred to 0x19?
