Arrow Vag-Com / vagcom Guide

Well, i decided to put to put together a little guide for the Vag-Com. It's only a first draft, so let me know what you think! They're in Word, but i can put them in PDF if anyone prefers it that way.

ok, so i revised it into 1 pdf, and added links inside, for easier reading.


Edit: docs attached to our servers so they're preserved (JJ-R32)

Though I don't have Vag-com..i still skimmed through it. Nice job!

Seems like a very useful guide if I had Vag-com...

I am sure this will help a lot of people!

I don't want to be a pita, but can you explain how the remote windows works? The Vag-com screenshot you reference describes doing it via a remote control - I assume meaning the keyfob (duh) - but what button/s do you push? Is it a simple Lock=windows roll up? For example, what does "Comfort opening power windows via remote control" do?

There's a shop nearby that will do the coding for me as long as I bring in the info, but I want to make sure I know what I'm doing before I tell them to do it.

Thanks,

=Tom

micro-can will only work with the newer cars, like the mkv gti/jetta/rabbit, b6 passat, stuff like that (possibly citigolf, i'm not sure about that though) - $250

hex-usb+can and hex-com+can will work newer and older cars on the mkv gti/jetta/rabbit, mkiv's, b5 & b6 passat, etc. $350

A little off topic, but which will work with the Audi A4? I'm kinda on the edge of what to get, the A4 w/ CVT or GTI 6spd. Was able to find this forum and seems like a lot of support here. But I can't seem to find the same for the Audi, though it uses the same engine? (though the ratings on APR's site say different)

yes, the vag-com will work on the b7 a4, but you MUST buy one of these two cables:

HEX-USB+CAN (USB)
HEX-COM+CAN (Serial)

both these cables will work on the mkv gti also.

Vag-com Service Indicator Reset

DP, please add this information in correct file as well, I am lazy tonight:

Select 17-Instruments
Select Adaptation (10) under advanced functions
Enter Adaptation Channel Number: 42 and select "Read"
The window should read: "Minimum value mileage" and Min. Value Oil in 100 Miles
The stored value should read "50" for 5000 mile intervals
Enter "100" for 10000 mile intervals
Select "Save" and select "Yes" when VAG-COM asks "Are you SURE?"



You may also need to adapt the service interval days:

Select 17-Instruments
Select Adaptation (10) under advanced functions
Enter Adaptation Channel Number: 49 and select "Read"
The window should read: "minimum time interval" and Min. Value Insp. in 1 Days
The stored value may read "180", if it does continue
Enter "365" for 365 days
Select "Save" and select "Yes" when VAG-COM asks "Are you SURE?"


You can also reset the service reminder with the VAG-COM

Select 17-Instruments
Select Adaptation (10) under advanced functions
Enter Adaptation Channel Number: 02 and select "Read"
The window should read: "Service Reminder" and ServRemInd Closed Reset
Enter "00" as the new value
Select "Save" and select "Yes" when VAG-COM asks "Are you SURE?"
To verify the settings briefly press and hold the trip counter reset button until the display reads "Service in 10,000 mi / 16,000 km or 365 days".
