I think after I've done one I'll understand but I don't even know what the module is?
What coding you wanting to try?
bit of info here http://forum.obdeleven.com/thread/2095/new-obd11-pro-help
here is a worked example of long coding changes http://obdeleven.proboards.com/post/8898
Here is a complicated change with video's http://forum.obdeleven.com/thread/2071/rear-blinkers-coding-video
Or tell me one thing you want to do and i will do a video over the weekend so you can see it in action if that helps.
I had a quick watch and I've successfully managed one click mirrors and carbon background for FIS and the infotainment thanks
So to recap I've done:
1 click mirrors
Not sure what else I can do
If you have factory warranty, make these changes, will not affect it? I ask this because I read in an Audi forum that the owner changed some things on his A4 and the dealer canceled his warranty by connecting another computer / device (other than theirs) in the car's central station.
Warranty ran out a couple of months ago
In my case, I have to wait a few years.
My 2017 Leon has warranty until 2021. 4 years warranty is good for one side, but bad for the other
Warranty is a very grey area. My personal understanding (and i am well out of warranty) is that if you wanted to buy an extended warranty they may refuse if they see you have modified the car. With regards to making a warranty claim if you are claiming for a new rear light (because its cracked) or a new gearbox because its broken they would find it very very difficult to claim you had caused that using one of these tools.
However if you changes the dashboard settings and it failed they may (and what i have seen its only when people tell them they used VCDS/OBD11/CARISTA) refuse this work. I also see much more feedback on these issue in the USA vs Europe (not to say it does not happen but a lot less noise about it)
I would be astonished if anyone at the dealer will ask..... I have changed settings with vcds on the last five new VAG cars we have bought. There heave been some warranty matters. No one have mentioned anything about my own “change of settings”.
However if you end up with problem caused by you change, that will be a different situation.
I have the same opinion!
are always trying to escape with responsibility in case they have to replace any component, especially if it is expensive. You have to always make "noise" to get them to replace what is necessary.
I did not buy warranty extension. Here in Portugal, I think that all deallers offer 4 years warranty on certain models (my mother has a Ibiza FR from 2016 and also has a 4 years warranty) I bought mine and also have the same 4 years. Both without any additional cost.
I just do not risk it because some of the changes I like to make will be very visible (for example, changing the background of the on-board computer), so do not risk
do them so that they have no possibility to complain and say that I have been changing things.
Have a read through the various forums there is loads of stuff you can do.
If you find VCDS Coding you can convert that very easily as well.
Better safe that sorry understand that but Just revert them when you take the car in. Thats the joy of these tools.
Other things you could try are tear drop wipe, increase lane change blinker count (or whatever its called ha), change throttle response, remove door open alarm and add drl settings to menu to name a few I have done. Also used obdeleven to help update infotainment software to run later tile version rather than carousel but not sure if that's something your interested in / need as unsure on model of Infotainment you have. Heres a link to obdeleven forum thread which lists coding available http://forum.obdeleven.com/thread/764/coding-adaptations
You're not far from me so if you need any help maybe we can meet and I can assist
My main problem is if the on-board computer creates some type of log from connecting a device and they then will see it and cancel my warranty. It's more because of that, I don’t make any changes, if not, there were some more discrete ones I would risk doing.
Some of the things like 5 blinks and teardrop are already active on my. I didn't do them.
Can my infotainment be changed I think its mib1?
Not sure if you can update software on mib1. Mines a mib2
Anybody with a Vitual Dash tried the following
Speedometer maximum value
Somebody on the OBD11 Forum asked to increase the displayed max speed and the above was the solution.
I just got my obdeleven yesterday and I enabled the needlesweep but it doesn't seem to work every time. for example - i unlock the car, get in, put the key into ignition and i get a regular "check". i then take out the key, wait 5 sec, turn the key again and THEN it works. any ideas?
Edit: Looks like it never does the sweep on cold start. Which is ironic since that's the time you actually want it to do it. If i remove the key from the ignition, wait 5 sec and turn it on - it will do the sweep in 100% of tries. Is there any secondary feature that needs to be enabled?
You have a very short time from the moment you put the key in the ignition, to when you crank it for the needle sweep to do it's magic. Probably around 5 seconds, if you take longer than that it won't do the sweep.
But f you take the key out and put it in again and crank it it will work.
Don't ask me why is it like that
