Is there a way to change the # of blinks when using the turn signals by slighting pressing. They currently blink 3 times when you press and release real quick.

Can you change it to 4 or 5 blinks?
I believe you can change that in the MFD: to 0, 3 or 5. I can't remember how exactly but I saw it in there at one time.

Also wanted to say a BIG :thumbsup: and thank you to dpham for putting together the little guide for vagcom. That guide and your thread on how to get the tpms error off, very helpful.

I recently changed my wheels/tires and got the tpms error light so I just went ahead and purchased a vagcom cable since nobody around me has one and I don't want to wait to go to Houston to get things done. Got the tpms light taken care of and a couple other things.

Thanks again.

Light brightness adjustment through VAGCOM

Thread ressurection.

You can add this to your PDF if you want DPham.

You can also adjust the brightness of the DRL (assuming halogens, i have xenons so i can't confirm), front fogs, rear park, rear brake lights as park lights, rear fog as park light.

Refer to DPham's PDF, or easier still just move through the bytes on your VAGCOM under central convenience.

The decimal values are how BRIGHT you want them to be, not how much to dim by (as you would assume by reading the vagcom screen), i.e. 0=off, 100=maximum brightness.

The rear park is the inside (hatch half) of the rear light, the brake is the outer half. Normally set at 20, and you wouldn't want them set at 100, or no one could tell the difference when you brake...

Couldn't seem to get any difference with front park light dimming values.

Anyone used the "backup" function of fogs for front low beams? I assume this would mean that in the event the front headlights fail that the fogs would kick in? Anyone with halogen lights and vagcom care to remove the plugs (so you don't have to remove the whole bulb) and check?

BTW interesting that some of the entries in the 607 version of VAGCOM are different/missing in the 704 version...

I have a vagcom and I was wondering if anyone knows that if you periodically ran the basic settings on the throttle body or calibrate the DSG will it improve the performance(i.e. throttle response)? Or would this F up something??

No Response from Controller

I just borrowed my buddies Hex-Com, installed the software on my laptop and tried hooking up to my car. The only controller screen that works is the transmission screen, all other screens return a "no response from controller" message. I cant figure out what is going on. The setup looks to be good except it says that the CAM is not active, but the damn thing just wont connect except to the transmission setup.

Any ideas what to do?

you need a CAN BUS cable. i believe the only ones that will work are Hex+CAN and Micro-CAN

My buddy has a VAG and he turned off my DLR's for me. We tried to set the window roll up my keyfob but couldn't find it in the long code helper.
Do you actualy have to do long code or is there a place in the helper to turn it on easier?

I believe this information is in the vag com guide that is in this thread, at least its what i used to do this on my car. Here is the info on page 7:

"-To enable the windows to be controlled by the remote (sunroof will only close), adjust
your bytes 6, 7, and 8 accordingly. Bytes 6, 7, and 8 shown below have been adjusted for
remote operation of the windows"

You basically click on the right byte in section 3 and make sure your check marks in the bits match pics....0C, 3E and 29 look like the ones you are after, remembering that the first byte is 0 and not 1.

i rear ended someone a while back and ever since i had the repair work done, the hood open indicator in the MFD is constantly going off. the body shop is willing to replace the latch but i would prefer to not have my oettinger bumper removed and reinstalled. does anyone know or would anyone be willing to check if it is possible to disable the hood open indicator in the MFD via VAGCOM?

im wondering if its possible for the vag tuner to turn off my drl's and turn on my parking lights when the car is moving with the headlights turned off?

currently my my headlights come on no matter waht as soon as the ebrake is disengaged.

Rear doors throwing codes

So i followed everything for the remote windows, and my rear doors are throwing codes: Door Control Modules, No Signal/Communication. I cant find any other codes or things unchecked that might cause this to happen. Other than that, i have no way of knowing if the coding worked because nothing happens to the windows. Any help?

You need a euro switch to turn on parking lights without headlights. Mine worked fine without needing vag-com but my DRL were not enabled.
