    Hay guys, I just picked up a VCDS. I’m gona download Hex-V2 shortly.
    I currently own an Audi RS3, SQ5 and my brother in law has a Q3 and VW Caddy. So plenty to muck around on!

    I would like to change some basic stuff 1st. What’s the best way to start fiddling with this thing?

    ALWAYS take and save an Auto-Scan before you change anything - VCDS automatically saves scans and logs.

    If you're not 100% confident what coding(s) and/or adaptation(s) to change then post a full unedited Auto-Scan and ask away

    Guys just plugged the VCDS HEX-V2 in for the 1st time.. I’ve run the test and connection seems to be good.

    PORT STATUS: OK
    INTERFACE: Found
    Type Hex-V2
    ....
    ....
    ....
    CAN: OK K1: OK K2: OK
    ....
    ....

    After this it jumps to another screen asking for Firmware update.

    “Network Error
    Unable to contact server. Check your internet access.
    Couldn’t connect to server
    Outgoing TCP 11000

    Test result Fail”

    What’s the problem???

    Also I have the SQ5 but it’s not listed under the “Auto-Scan” section. If I use Auto detect I get another error

    “Failure to communicate (0)
    Please use (Options) > (Test) for further details.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I can’t see an RS3 but I’m suspecting that the A3/S3/RS3 would be all the same. Correct?
    Thanks Uwe

    Yes, an except for the engine (and possibly the trans), the A3, S3, and RS3 are all essentially the same. The most important thing is that you find stuff for the correct generation of car; yours is the current 8V chassis. Prior to that, there was the 8P chassis, and before that, the 8L chassis. In some cases, the model year also makes a difference; BCMs tend to change mid-way through the production life of a chassis.

    G'day cobber!!! sounds like you are where I was after my first purchase of a VCDS cable -lots of stuff to learn and lots of discoveries. I'm sure that you will have a heap of fun, but try to make a few errors on the way - it's by far the best learning environment!!

    Uwe's link is a great reference facility and sites like these (including the brilliant on-line VCDS manual HERE) are real useful. But if you need some specific questions answered - there is an absolutely awesome experience base waiting behind the responses on this forum.

    And, my experience has been that even (my) not-so-intelligent questions are answered with due-consideration and sage empathy.

    Don

    PS: RS3 ? Very nice!! I don't believe that RS3s travel south of Sydney into the bad-lands of Victoria!!

    I’ve just tested the line and run a scan as you saw above. What would be your next step?

    How about I try something like activating the beep on the remote when you turn the alarm on. Hopefully not too difficult.
