  1. Request for change - SRI value table output - A8 D4 [and others] ...

    The VCDS SRI 'button' is a useful tool between services, as you can select it, watch the Instrument panel channel values being read quickly and seeing the table of values displayed. Then you cancel...

    Due to an unexpected hospital visit I haven't had my Oil change service yet but I decided to use VCDS to alter the IDE03349-FIX field from its 'incorrect' [15900] value to the one I expected [30000]....

    Well, you've met one electronically, me ;)

    I've got a 'log book' - it's an Excel Workbook - with entries foir all work and changes to my car with dates and mileages.

    I also use the SRI option...

    Jack; sometimes I wonder why we have to put up with this stuff, but if you're going to implement a complicated computer based service mechanism, it needs to work properly and present good data.

    Thanks for you comments Guys.

    In response to you comment about trying, Uwe, I've got an Oil service next week, so I'll inspect the cluster service fields after they've reset it and probably reset...

    I've tried searching but can't find any specifics about using VCDS to alter specific fields in the instrument cluster that are used for Service alerts.

    Specifically, I'd like to alter the...

    Just for completeness, from my point of view, anyway; I ran Debug 2 on my 2016 A8 D4.

    Can't tell from the Autoscan if modules are UDS or not [might be a useful addition to the log data] but I...

    Ah; so you're saying that the HEX+CAN interface never supported the newer type Gateway's? Didn't realise that. :(

    But why does it work so far - the green bar is about 95% done - and then fail in...

    I've just rerun VCDS 18.9.0 with Debug set to 2 on my 2005 A8 D3. It only scanned and dumped variables for ECUs without a label file [4 in my case] and created a .PLA & .PLB for each of those ECUs! ...

    Is that going to achieve what is desired - that is, all modules?

    I thought Debug set to 2 only mapped undocumented modules, that is, modules without a label file?

    Guys; I've just discovered that although registered, I can't post to the 'How To's and Tips' forum to ask a 'How To' question.

    Is this intentional?

    I think you're misinterpreting some dates as 'funny dates'. I believe the BEM populates some data table entries with data that looks like it was written 01/01/2000 [before the car was even...
