Feed with some idea's what can be done to it through VCDS

I have done first scan and saved it for future reference. So far I have activated secret menu, battery info and lap timer but when I go to vehicle DIS I don't see battery info nor lap timer option. Can anyone help. Also I can change the splash screen through secret menu but there is no option to apply it. Does it mean I can't change MMI screen when it loads up

Here is the scan:

Code:
Chassis Type: 4G (4G0)
Scan: 01 02 03 05 08 09 10 15 16 17 19 36 3B 42 44 46 52 53 55 56

Try at own risk, I won't be responsible if you make mistake

Here's my complete list

1. Enabling Gauge Test/Needle Sweep (already activated)
This will sweep the needles of the speedo and rev counter through their full range automatically when you start the engine.
[Select]
[17 - Instruments]
[Coding - 07]
[Long Coding Helper]
Click on byte 1 and you'll see the selectable option: "Gauge Test/Needle Sweep active"
Check this option
[Do It!]

This produced expected results

2. Enabling Lap Timer (Did nothing on my car - I have been told I need to get instruments firmware updated by Audi)
[Select]
[17 - Instruments]
[Coding - 07]
[Long Coding Helper]
Click on byte 1 and you'll see the selectable option: "Lap Timer active"
Check this option
[Do It!]

3. Kerb lighting (Activated)
Illuminating the kerb when turning hard left or right at low speeds with dipped beam on, by turning on the all-weather light on the relevant side of the car.
[Select]
[09-Cent. Elect.]
[Coding - 07]
[Long Coding Helper]
Click on byte 4 and enable bit 0
[Do It!]

4. Beep on lock (Activated)
Chirp the alarm siren briefly when the alarm activates (ie all doors are closed and the car is locked)
[Select]
[46-Central Conv.]
[Coding - 07]
[Long Coding Helper]
Click on byte 1 and in bit 2 you'll see the selectable option: "Anti-Theft-System: Horn Confirmation active"
Check this option
[Do It!]

5. Hidden menu (Activated)
Enable access to the green engineering menu in the MMI
[Select]
[5F - Information Electr.]
[Adaptation - 10]
Select Channel 6 and Read
change the value from 0 to 1 then Test then Save
Reboot the MMI (Press MENU, central MMI knob and top right softkey)
To get to the Hidden Menu, press and hold the CAR and MENU buttons for a few seconds. You may have to have a few attempts - if you don't press them at the exact same moment either CAR or MENU activates. You know if you have done it right because the red LEDs in the buttons do not illuminate.
WARNING!!!! BE CAREFUL!!! Do not mess with settings in the Hidden Menu unless you know what you are doing. On earlier MMI versions, people managed to activate the bootloader menu and fried their MMI. Use at your own risk. If in doubt, leave well alone!

6. Battery Meter. (Did this but no information in MMI)
Enter the Hidden Menu as in step 5 above.
Select Car
Select Carextdevicelist
Check "Battery"
Return
Select Carmenuoperation
Set "Battery" from 0 to 5
Return
Press CAR to exit the hidden menu
Reboot the MMI

7. VIM (Retrived code - will try tomorrow)
Video In Motion - prevent the car from suppressing DVD playback once the speed of the car rises above 5mph
I used the same technique as in my C6 with MMI 3G. These are the steps I followed:
[Select]
[5F-Information Electr.]
[Advanced ID - 1A]
Make a note of the Serial Number
Go to Enable VIM TV-playback using VCDS/VAG-COM in your Audi MMI | trick77.com
Follow the link for MMI 3G
Enter your serial number into the input field
Make a note of the personal login code and the alternative login code it returns
[Security Access - 16]
Enter your personal login code.
[Do it!]
If you receive a "code not valid" message try the alternative code. If neither code works it's likely that your control module doesn't support VIM adaptation.
[Adaptation - 10]
Select channel 48
Press read
Set the value from 0 to 255
Press test
Press save
Press "Done, Go Back"
Close VCDS and reboot your MMI as detailed in step 5 above

8. Passenger door mirror dip on selecting reverse.
(Already activated)
When reverse gear is selected, the passenger door mirror dips to show the kerb if the mirror control knob is set to the passenger door mirror position. When driving forwards and exceeding 5mph or when switching off the car, the passenger mirror returns to its original position. If the position of the mirror is changed when dipped, this change is remembered the next time the mirror dips.

And a little bonus :

Lowering AAS with VCDS


0) Set your car to "Auto" mode (not dynamic, comfort, etc.). Make sure car is on level ground. Close doors. If any doors are opened during the procedure, it will be interrupted. Make sure your car is NOT in a towing or tire changing mode.
1) Load up VCDS, go to Module 34 - Level Control
2) Go to "10 - Adaptation", take note of 4 values titled as "Body height front left wheel house edge" - mine were set to around 384 from factory.
3) Take the values you noted above, and ADD your desired drop in millimeters (mm) to each value, write it down... So if your left front wheel was 384.5, your new value will be 401.5. Repeat for the other wheels. It is not critical to be 100% precise here, rounding the values is fine. Note that maximum Audi-approved drop is 17mm from what I've gathered. You can go lower, but if you go lower, you're also affecting other systems, such as cameras, adaptive cruise, etc., so be careful.

Technically, if you want this procedure to be done properly, instead of taking existing values, you will measure all 4 wheels after completion of the step 7, and then add your drop value if desired. Suspension height values are measured from the center of the wheel to the edge of the fender.

4) Go to Security Access, enter code provided on the following website, under VCDS section, item #3 (I'm not posting this directly to avoid spreading sensitive data, although it's been posted on other forums in past) http://www.stemei.de/pages/coding/au...ng-des-aas.php
5) You should get a message stating that security code has been accepted - if you don't, something failed, stop doing what you're doing
6) Go to 04 - Basic Settings

*** IMPORTANT: Whatever you do, DO NOT select "Reset All Adaptations" - this is not undoable, and will require a visit to the dealer. ***

7) Select "Activate Level Control", hit "Go", wait for it to complete (should only take a second, until it says "not running").
8) Select "Delete Calibration For Level Control", hit "Go", wait for it to complete, your car will throw a fault code and you will see an error message stating Air Suspension Malfunction - this is normal.
7) Select "Start Up to Reference Level", hit "Go". This step will take about a minute, and your car will go up/down during the process (you'll hear hissing noises). Wait for it to complete, until it says "not running". DO NOT use the "start up to reference level production" option.
9) Select "Go Back", go to "10 - Adaptation" on the previous screen.
10) Next you will need to enter new adaptation values for all 4 wheels. Select "Body height front left wheel house edge", then enter new adaptation value, and hit "Do it", then repeat for the other 3 wheels. I did it in the order the menu was arranged (FL, RL, FR, RR) - not sure if the order matters, but just in case. Each time you enter a value, you should get a message stating that it has been accepted.
11) After you're done entering adaptation for all 4 wheels, select "Go Back", and return to "04 - Basic Settings" again.
12) In basic settings, select "Calibrate Level Control" and hit go, it will take a few seconds. Wait for it to say "not running". If you get an error during this step, you either missed a step, or something went horribly wrong.
13) Select "Activate Level Control", hit "Go"
14) You're done, now go to "02 - Fault Codes" and Reset codes.

If this did or didn't work - please share your experience with the rest of us here.

UPDATE:

There is an additional setting that will prevent your car from auto-lowering at ~30 mph, as well as allow you to raise the suspension while driving at any speed. Standard settings gray out the "raise" button over a certain speed, and are particularly annoying if your car is lowered via the steps above and you would like to keep it raised for an extended period of time (such as city driving with a lot of dips, bumps, ramps, sloped driveways, etc.)

1) Launch the green menu by holding Car + Menu buttons. (If you don't know how to enable or use the green menu, see the main VCDS thread)
2) Go to "car" then "carmenuoperation" menu
3) Scroll down to "suspension"
4) Change the value to "5"
5) Press the center menu knob to save
6) Reboot the MMI (Menu button +Center knob+Top Right soft button)
7) Turn the ignition on/off

Not bad, but VIM doesn't work for facelift C7 (C7.5). Does anybody know how to enable VIM on these C7.5 cars with VCDS?

Cannot be done via VCDS unfortunately as the MMI used changes from MMI3Gx to MIB (MMI4Gx).

Hi ya'll!
I tried a trick which apparently worked on a 2016 VW Golf R but doesn't work on my 2014 A6 C7. The video showed it done in 017 - instruments - adaptations - ignition active message, actuator. In my adaptations drop down menu there isn't an option like that.

Is there a way to disable the alarm chime opening the driver door with ignition on? It's quite annoying... I know i can mute it by pressing 'OK' on steering wheel but I would prefer to disable the whole chime.

The lowering method worked great for me on my 2013 D4. I followed the instruction to reset and when it came to entering the values for each wheel, I added 10mm to each whereby giving me a much better ride height that still allows me to raise when needed. I didn't have to mess with the hidden green screen (I don't think it was done prior to my owning the car) Instructions very much appreciated. Thanks!
