Arrow Re: VCDS (Vag-Com Diagnostic System) for VW & Skoda - Discussion Thread

Guys!

Have anybody tried getting through Security Access code for the central electrical module?

I tried 31347 and 12151. It does not work.

Thanks in advance!

Guys!! The VCDS 15.7 version cables are readily available on Aliexpress now. Has anyone tried them? Mine are in transit.

The installation instructions are pretty different for this one (used the 12.12 before this). They need your internet and antivirus to be off. Was i better off with the 12.12.

Try it and tell us. Internet need not be off in the 12.12 cable, though.
Worst case, it might not work. Order another!
Or use mine if you're in Mumbai!

Can you post the link here? I do not see any difference in installation for the 15.7 one as well, 15.7 version should have many more codings open to fiddle with, Please do update once you get it.

Thanks. I used a 12.12 cables before this. It was kinda useless for features like TPMS etc, the coding never worked. hence the idea of 15.7

Here you go:

I got the installation instructions in a separate email from seller. He mentioned that the 12.12 cables were encoded to original software so it was pretty stable whereas for 15.7 the software was also tweaked.

Will keep you posted. I am also retrofitting cruise control next weekend

Do Drop me a PM when you would be in the process for getting pla 2.0 and 8k OPS, Will share whatever little knowledge i have collected past 3 months over the internet, Retrofitting can be done almost anywhere were they are "Willing" to do it, Since mostly all of these are just plug and play and you need to know what you are doing.

Also your doing these mods on jetta? Passat?

Thanks! As shocking as this may sound, My Passat does not have parking sensors. I have performed a couple of mods over the last year. Some worked, some didn't.

I feel parking sensors are essential and have been toying with the idea of OE look after market sensors, that are much easier to install and wire. Of course I would miss the RCD 510 display and possibility of installing Park Assist

There was a passat which did not come with parking sensors?
Did not know that.
Installing pla 2.0 would be a tad complicated for you then, But possible, We shall see

I recently installed a ESP (ASR) Off switch for my jetta, And infact made full use of it on a beach yesterday.

Read on one of the Russian forums that with v15.7, someone was able to get mirrors' auto folding on the Jetta and Tiguan which otherwise would require some EEPROM tinkering.

Quote:
Block> Electronics-42 driver's door -> 16 Locked input area code - 04354 - Run obtain confirmation of the adoption of the code -> 10 Adaptation to drop down a long list of VERY CAREFULLY looking place (towards the end of the list):

(9) -System_Parameter_0-System Parameter Byte8 Initially, there is 90, introducing a new character set 95 or 99.

90 = folding is off
95 = if you want to activate the folding when arming (while holding the button on the key 2 seconds) / unfolding the ignition is switched on,
99 = if you need to activate the folding / unfolding on opening the driver's door.

The whole procedure is carried out adaptation with the ignition, and the doors closed position joystick mirrors to "0" and certainly works using Vasi version 15.7 Personally tested on Jett and Tiguane.

Wow, Have ordered the cable, Can't wait to try this out. This is one of the features i sorely miss in the Jetta and frankly speaking its a tad annoying to open and close the mirrors everytime i sit and before i get out, Would love my key fob doing that for me.

Thanks for the share.

has anyone tried the engine temperature on a Rapid ?

I miss the temperature gauge a lot on my rapid.

There is a way to get the temperature using OBD and connecting to your android but nothing like having it on your dashboard.

You mean the coolant temperature?

The new clusters have the coolant temperature display on the MFD. Just the temperature readout. The temperature sensor is present on the loop but lacks the readout since the cluster has no provision.

@Tanveer: Do let us know how it goes through! So far the Russian comrades haven't disappointed.

31347 works on the new Octavia CECM which is based on the MQB platform. But it is not easy to get the security access to the earlier one. Russian forum guys and the maker of cable, Ross tech guys themselves couldn't help with security access code to the earlier CECM. But I think that is because it does not really give you what you want. If that access solved a lot of problems with low level adjustments in the system, it must have been cracked already and available accross the online forums. Like MQB based CECM gives you a lot of options to play with. The earlier CECM is not based on such an architecture. It gives you much lesser control of its functions as compared to the MQB based one. Even the guys sounded like, why is that security access required, like, what good could it be of. I myself would like to get access and see what's behind it but it seems like there isn't much in there like we think.

31347 (MQB based CECM securtiy access code) is available everywhere despite of it being the latest. That is simply because, it lets you do so much. I think the earlier ones don't. And may be no one really cared to share that code even if they found out because it could be useless. I guess.
