Confirmed VCDS Tweaks for eGolf

Fri Jul 10, 2015 9:29 am

I cant take all the credit but playing with VCDS I have confirmed several tweaks we can perform on our car. Thanks to flygteye on Vortex I used his list to work on my car and confirm. http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.p ... st86033550

Do these at your own risk. If you are not familiar with VCDS do your research or take to a professional

Haven't confirmed this but should work to turn off bumper lights:
Disable DRL This will enable DLR's to be turned on/off in the infotainment screen.
09 Central Electrics
Go to Access
Enter code 31347
Go to Adaptation and change:
(2) Daytime Running Lights "Tagfahrlicht Aktivierung durch BAP oder Bedienfolge moeglich" to Active"

OR

9 Tagfarhrlicht nur in Schalterstellung Auto = DRL only in Auto switch position. This shuts them off altogether.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

I will work on turning off the Automatic air. If you do not have VCDS (Vagcom) there are locals in your area who have it who are willing to perform these changes generally for a small fee. These are all functions available to the car nothing which a dealer would raise an issue with. They are already programmed to your vehicle, VCDS allows you to turn them on and off. Info about VCDS can be found here: http://www.ross-tech.com/index.html

**EDIT** Just found another link. Going to store here for reference: http://vcds.greg-roberts.com/view-entri ... rfilters=0

Great post!

I do own VCDS and trying to play with it as well but I've got into a problem that there''s no description files for long coding or something like that and I can see just bunch of bites but no description.

What version do you use? I was not able even connect with release 14 and was told to use Beta version (it works, but with that issues with description files).

BTW, I did try that mod about Running Day lights (those on bumper) and it did work, I have menu and can turn it on/off.

Thanks!

I'm running v14.10. What you are referring too is the long coding helper. VCDS hasn't deciphered a lot of the information in the long coding. You have to use Adaptation to edit almost all of these which is the box below coding. It opens up a drop down box.

Always copy your original code first then you can tinker and revert if there is issue. GolfMK7.com has a lot of VCDS tweaks, you can duplicate check boxes if there is something in particular you are looking for. I've found most of it to be in Adaptation though.

Glad the DRL tweak worked for you.

Oh, that's good to know. I though that Long coding is the way to do most of the stuff.
Glad I can do Adaptation. I did notice bunch of options there. Now I hope to have more free time to play with it :)

Will post if I found something helpful.

Well, it's a good thing that I am going to keep my VAG tool from my Audi.

I did it and it works fine for me. Make sure you keep mirror switch pointer on passenger side, otherwise it not working. Also, I did it twice, after first time it did not keep all those changes, I may miss pressing "Do it" or something, don't know. Second attempt was successful.

Mirror returns to some original setting though, not last known position, as was described. I think some hardware updates need to be done to keep it on same position.
Really like this feature.

Like mentioned above, the mirror switch must be pointed at R (Right) for this to work. You must also go into the menu and click the check box within the stereo menu to activate it. Even though you enable you must physically turn it on the first time.

Also once its enabled, you must set the mirror position which in reverse with it activated. Then when you shift into Drive it should return to regular position. It will revert the the last adjusted positions for drive or for reverse.

Figured out what I was doing wrong. Forgot to go to 16 -Security Access and enter the 31347. Works now. Also finished up the windows comfort feature with keyfob. Only other one would be the LED, but will probably keep those.

Now, second question. On my 911, when I set this, I have to move the mirror to the position I want and save the memory. On the VW, there is no memory set. Do I just place the mirror where I want it and it will remember that position? Or is it a preset movement?

The memory is the last position. So shift to reverse and set your mirror position. It will remember that position.
