Is there a list of things that can be done to our cars with vagcom with how-to's? I've searched and really haven't came up with anything and I'll be getting my cable tomorrow. Any help would be much appreciated. TIA.
PDF as requested...
It's not pretty but gets the information across.
What I didn't see in there (quick scan) was the bit about coding the MFD to U.K. mode, something I had to do when I did my coding, presumably for FTP. You do that via the MFD convenience panel, not the Vagcom. Lingering effect is that my MFD will report "tyre" pressure low when my tires are low.
When i got my car vagcom'd, the guy that did it went through all of the menus and asked if i wanted this or that. He set up the emergency brakes to flash under hard braking. Rain closing windows. Remote open/close windows. Something with the parking lights that when you are in a parking lot you click the turn signal to one side and it will light up the parking lights on that side. Not sure what that is for, but i said sure. Definately get the FTP. You will turn night into day! Both doors unlock when the key is taken out of the ignitian. 1 click unlock of both doors.
He also showed me a little trick with the climate control that opens up this entire other menu. You can read RPMs, speed, etc on the climate control. Pretty cool, not very useful, but neat to show off to friends.

I'm always able to get a non seat belt wearer to wear it in my car. I just say "It won't stop until you put it on" since the euro code for VAG makes the chime last much longer.
abe: By procedure, do you mean to access the VAG output via the Climatronic or are you asking for a list of codes and their measurements?
Check the pdf linked above. On page 6, it discusses how to get to UK coding with vag com. My recollection was muddied (probably) by the need to go back to the MFD to go back to Fahrenheit after you've done UK (which defaults to C).
Then on page 14 of the pdf, it describes tweaking byte 17, bit 1 in the central electronics module to enable flash to pass as well as dual high beams.
hope that helps.
Got that to work just fine, missed it in the PDF. Now I'm having trouble with the remote windows and rain closing, go figure. I did notice that vag com looks different now than in the pdf.
OK, got the remote windows to work (had to uncheck one more box ) Now I just need to figure out why the rain closing feature won't work.

1) Press ECON [or AC] button and windshield defrost button
- Driver side LCD displays diagnostic channel
- large numbers = channel
- superscript number = sub-channel
*for this post sub-channels referenced in decimal (i.e., 19.1)
- Pass side LCD displays diagnostic value or data
*some values include decimal point, others don't, which suggests some values being 3 digits long (i.e., 654 = 654)
2) Turn Driver's side temp knob to adjust channel number
3) Turn FAN knob to adjust sub-channel
4) Pres ECON [or AC] button to exit diagnostic mode
*) Passenger side temp knob appears to be control nothing
(Above was copied from a post on the TDI CLUB website)
• 1.0: Temp as read by sensor in middle fan speed knob.
• 1.4: Light intensity falling on same sensor.
• 4.0: Outside Temp – front bumper
• 4.1: Outside Temp – roof.
• 4.2: Outside Temp – rear bumper (inside temp?)
• 15.0: Oil Temp
• 19.0: Uncorrected Speed (Km/h)
• 19.1: Uncorrected Speed (Mp/h)
• 19.2: Coolant Temp
• 19.3: Tachometer (x100rpm)
• 19.4: Oil Pressure
• 25.0: Voltage
Some of the above may or may not be right, but I do know 19.x are right and voltage and such.
