Hi

I'm new to the forum (this is my first post) and I'd appreciate any assistance that can be given with using VCDS to achieve a few mods to my 2012 Audi Q7 (4L). I've used VCDS to modify previous vehicles (two VW Golfs, and Audi A3 & and Audi A5) so know my way around the software, but am struggling to find the necessary Codings and Adaptations to achieve those same mods on the Q7.

In short, this is what I'm looking to achieve:

  • Alarm double-chirp on remote unlock
    I've got the single chirp on remote locking working, but would like to also have the vehicle double-chirp when unlocked by remote.

  • Passenger mirror down when reverse selected
    I've tried a Coding I found online (52 - Door Elec, Pass-> Change Byte 4, set Bit 2: Reverse Gear Mirror Dipping Active) and that causes the mirror to drop - but by the tiniest amount (making it pointless). I was wondering if an adaptation exists that defines how far the mirror drops, or whether a different Coding exists to fully achieve the result I'm after?

  • Disable comfort turn signals
    Currently nudging the indicator stalk briefly results in 3 blinks of the indicators. I'd like to be able to disable this feature - or set the number of blinks to 1 (same thing I suppose).

  • Auto folding mirrors
    The mirrors fold when the mirror control knob is turned to the 6 O'clock position, but I'd like them to do this automatically when I turn the ignition off, and unfold automatically when the ignition is switched back on.

The Autoscan output for this vehicle is below - if anyone does know of settings I can change to achieve any of the above I'd be very grateful to hear from you.

Thanks
Brian

Thanks for this info Andy - I appreciate it. It's disappointing to learn that the more modern Q7 can't be tweaked in the same way as the older A5, but that's life I suppose - there are people with worse problems!

Thanks again.

Uh, the Audi Q7 was introduced in 2005. Mechanically, it was derived from the 7L Touareg/Cayenne platform, and from a electronics perspective, the systems in it are fairly closely related to the 4E A8 and 4F A6, which are also somewhat older. The Audi A5 was introduced in 2007, the first of Audi's new modular longitudinal platform, and many of the system in it were brand new at that point.

Interesting - thanks for that extra information. I suppose once a model is introduced they don't radically change the design - even the electronics systems - throughout the model lifespan, even for 'facelift' models, so what you're saying makes a lot of sense.

Do you know - are the various Coding and Adaptation tweaks that "become widely known" the result of trial and error by either Ross-Tech or independent enthusiasts, or are they obtained from the manufacturer somehow? I mean, Audi themselves must know the purpose of each and every bit of every byte in each module they use in their vehicles, but presumably they guard that information quite jealously? I would guess they have no reason to make it public.

Anyway, thanks again for the information - it explains why the Q7 doesn't lend itself to VCDS tweaking as well as some of the other vehicles from VW/Audi.

Some stuff (but by no means all) is documented within the factory's tools, some is obtained through trial and error, and some stuff leaks from the factory in other ways.

Right -- they see no benefit in making it public.
