Parking sensor graphics

16 posts in this topic

How do I get my pop-up display to show the parking sensor distance graphics?

 

At the mo, the sensors just bleep.  MY mate's A6 has the graphics display, and on eBay there is an older A8 with the graphic display.

 

It's the last picture in this ad. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2004-AUDI-A8-TDI-QUATTRO-AUTO-GREY-/131011931030?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item1e80eb6b96

Don't know about the A6 but this works on A4/5 :

[10] Park/Steer Assist

16 Security access -> 71679

Do It

07 - Coding

Byte 0

bit 4 0->1

Arse! I couldn't do it. My module wouldn't take the code.

I now realise why - I need a different Park Assist Module. I need a 'D' unit. I have the 'B' unit fitted as standard, but they upgraded in 2008/9? to the 'D'. Will try to grab one on ebay. 2 nuts and 3 connectors should do it.

Thanks for trying Scotty.

Will try to change a few other things too:-

stop the seat belt bleep

use the foglights for indications aswell

And enable the gauge sweep round

I just need long codes to do them, I'll have a look tomorrow, as I am not sure my VAG-Com has that option???

May not work but again for A4/5 :

Disable Seatbelt Chime

[17 - Instruments] [Coding - 07] -> Long Coding Helper -> Byte 0

Bit 2-4 – Seat Belt Warning inactive

Enable fog lamp to come on for the same side as that turn signal

[09 – Cent. Elect.] [Coding - 07] -> Long Coding Helper -> Byte 4

Bit 0 - Check the box or change :Bit 0 set to 1

Enable Gauge Test/Needle Sweep

[17 - Instruments] [Coding - 07] -> Long Coding Helper -> Byte 1

Bit 0 - Check the box for "Gauge Test/Needle Sweep active"

Hi Cruiser 647,

 

I had Craigyb (TCL Satnav) upgrade my parking sensor module from "Beep-only" to "Beep+Graphics".  (2004 model year)

 

I was totally satisfied with his work.

 

Hope this helps,

 

John

Cheers geezer.

 

I am waiting to find the 'D' part on ebay.  Nothing but a and c's at the mo though.

 

Haven't seen or heard of Craigyb for ages!

I was going to add earlier, but forgot, he's not even logged on here since April last year so it seemed unlikely.

No idea.  I just looked at his profile to see the last time he logged on.

I don't think he had a good time of it with his other half or now ex from memory, he didn't seem to be around much after that. Shame he was a good bloke and lives local to me.

Good lad Craig. I know he had a solid IT infrastructure background so hopefully he's now doing nicely enough to have scrapped the fecking about rebuilding Audi dashboards.  :grin:

I spoke to him about 4 -6 weeks ago, said he packed it in and gone back to IT as not enough work. Apologies if he indeed hasn't packed it in.

craigyb is still in business, try contacing him via his website http://www.tclsatnav.com/

He's still actively posting on audiforum.us, maybe he's just sharing his knowledge rather than doing it as a business now?
