    Having owned several European Audi B7 A4 cars I can categorically state that is wrong - the only options were Halogen or HID headlamps.

    Not surprising when you remember than the B7 A4 ceased...

    When you do an Auto-Scan do the bulb failures show up as fault codes?

    Remember VCDS is a diagnostic system that can only report as much information as the VAG firmware reports, if that doesn't...

    Registration date doesn't matter, what matters is the Model Year.

    BTW any reason why you have edited off the VCDS header that shows the version number?

    I'm puzzled that neither the 09 Cent...

    We'll need to see a full unedited VCDS Auto-Scan of your S5.

    FYI the setup method of many controllers has been changed by VAG (more adaptation, less coding).

    For the majority - who don't live in the UK - 62 plate means first registered between September 1 2012 and February 28 2013. So OPs A3 is most likely a 2013 MY - unless it had been in dealer stock...

    As the Auto-Scan says:
    Sounds like the A4 has been in a crash, further shown by there being no #15 Airbag in the Auto-Scan.

    I think you need to investigate the SRS (airbag) system.

    That's there because one variant (DTM Edition) was available without front fog lights ;)

    So you need to add a resistor in parallel with the LED of the correct value to reduce 7.5 ohms to 2.6 ohms, the formula for this is:

    R2 = (R1 * R) / (R1 - R) where R = the desired value (2.6 ohms)...

    Sadly, yes. There are still people who don't understand that if something looks to good/cheap to be true it IS too good to be true :facepalm:

    I would like to see the other auto makers who 'somehow' met the diesel emissions levels being looked at more closely - some have been found to have used their own 'cheats' and I find it difficult to...

    Two suggestions that will help someone assist you:
    1) update to the latest VCDS version
    2) use the English version when posting here - it will install alongside your Swedish version

    Have you checked continuity between their "ground" pins and the chassis?

    Do they share a common earthing point on the chassis?

    ... but since there is no subscription fee and update downloads are free for as long as you own a genuine cable there can IMHO be no excuse for piracy.

    If the battery discharges after only 10/20 minutes then it's not in the best of health.

    When I'm using VCDS I always turn off the A/C completely, and if I'm going to be connected for more than say...

    How long do you leave the VCDS cable and laptop attached to the car?

    Are you powering the laptop from the 12V socket in the car?

    What VCDS cable are you using - HEX-CAN, HEX-V2, HEX-NET,...?

    I've only ever owned one Audi diesel (a 2004 B6 A4 1.9Tdi Sport Avant) which I sold in 2005 and didn't have a DPF - so I'll have to leave that for someone else to answer :popcorn:

    That looks like only the first part of the Auto-Scan - the data for module #42 is incomplete and the data for modules #44 to #72 is missing?

    AFAIK a 2008 A4 B7 won't have a DPF as DPF were introduced in 2009.

    As Uwe asks, has this car been ship tuned or remapped?

    Many owners forums have a list of VCDS owners, many of them will do things like this for no more than "beer tokens".

    Martin,
    When you start a new thread unless you include a scan you should post a link to a previously posted scan - you can't expect us to search the forum :thanks:
