    Disable Brake Pad Warning Light (Audi A6 - 2014)

    Hi there, I have just had my brake pads changed on my Audi A6 2014, 2.0, TDI, (UK vehicle). The brake pad warning light keeps illuminating on the dash, so having done some reading, it is likely to be a broken connection to a sensor. The obvious question, yes, the pads have definitely been changed and are new, so comfortable its the sensor/connection.

    How do I disable the Brake Pad Warning Light using the VCDS software?
    I have tried to find an exact answer on the forum but no luck unfortunately.
    I am very knew to the VCDS software so please feel free to use "Idiots guide" language.....I can see coding strings is going to be part of the answer but am confused how that works.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated

    Thanks!

    Just connect the two wires together on the relevant front and rear pads. This will stop the light.

    That will get you a screen something like this:



    In line 3), click on Byte 17. The Byte you have clicked on will will be shown just below ("Byte 6" in the sample screen above).

    Bit 2 of that Byte should be labelled: "Brake Pad Wear Sensor (G37) installed".

    Remove the check-mark next to it, then exit Long Coding Helper. Then there should be a string in the 'New Coding' field of the previous screen. There, click [Do it!].
