yepNeed help please, trying to do this:
Pin 100% correct but "save" greyed out, is it security access 16 1st?
why always autoscan, cant we just had a simple yes or no,
OK, lets see if we got this straight..... You purchased a RT VCDS because of their reputation and its effectiveness , and you came to this web-site forum because of the reputation, effectiveness, and world wide exposure. Great!
Now YOU are telling the community here how you wish to be helped ???? "I want my car fixed, But don't ask for ........." You purchased a VCDS, don't you want to utilize its capabilities. (?)
We need to be confident that the advice you get is not going to break/damage anything - that means you post an Auto-Scan.So please please can you tell what difference a full scan is going to make ???????
I can tell you that many 2.5 v6 are fitted with about 2-3 different pump codes ( based on HP and year model ). They have Bosch DDI system and they have the same problems. On most ,the power regulating MOSFET that drives the debit/flow electrovalve fitted in the pump blows / craps out. We do repair them around here at a price somewhere between 150-300 euros ( that includes diagnosis , removal of pump ecu , repair and refitting ecu back on pump ). However , if a customer chooses to replace the whole pump unit ( mechanical pump and ecu ) they need to have the PIN of the car and we just go to the car and rePIN the pump. It s not our problem if the car starts or not as long as we didn t sell the pump. Our job is to either extract the PIN and match it or just match the PIN. Now you can do this using a simple VAG KKL cable ( VAG KKL example , click me )which is really cheap ( around 20 euros around here ) and a small program called VAG Eepromer ( i use v1.19 , you can download that from various sites). Having those 2 tools , you could extract PIN and then use VCDS on channel 50 to match the pump to your immo system after you login into the ecu with the PIN.Or , you can do a IMMO delete and put whatever pump you want as long as it is the same code. Just please keep in mind that the replacement pump be of the same code ( 011 , 030 , whatever bosch code you have , which should be stamped on the side of the body of the pump in a 0470 xxx xxx format , you need to match last 3 digits ). Otherwise your car might not function properly , might blow smoke , will not pull on power , not start....etc etc
After replacing said pump and match it to the car , you could do a TDI timing to make sure the pump is properly advanced /retarded, using the same VCDS and the help of mechanic.
Below picture with Login code , which will be extracted as a 4 digit code to which you need to add a 0 ( zero ) before it to make it valid when you login into ecu. @Uwe , please let me know it this post breaks the forum rules regarding immo info/how to obtain a pincode/ etc ?
@Liteace1 : Savvy ?
So you were there to work on the car, had trouble with it, but didn't take the 2-3 minutes needed to run an Auto-Scan on this car?1st trip didnt work, save greyed out
As you wish.if there's no simple answer without autoscan, close the thread and we'll leave it as one of life's mysteries
