One-touch memory / keyless go / safety password

12 posts in this topic

Hi guys :)

I just bought myself an Audi S8 5.2l FSI and the previos owner (car dealer) did not give me and does not have the safety password for editing/deleting/adding user profiles. So I don't have any uppertunity to create a user to me and cant remove old profiles.

I have searched alot for some information about how I can reset the password with vag-com, but no luck so far.

Does anybody have some info about this?

Thanks :)

You lucky barstard!!! +++

 

How's it sound and go?  Any mods planned?  

With regard to the profile thing, not sure.  Maybe the main dealer will have info, otherwise it should be in the hand book.  

It also, might be under a different name to what you are searching for.

I don't recall a profile in my D3s, but they were earlier models.  The US based forums are bound to have something in that....

hihihi ;D The sound is perfect and I am totally in love with the car now :D

For now I am only going to fix every faults in the car - and after that I can think of mods ;)

There is some small issues with soft-lock and slow lid motor ++ :)

Yes, I know that Audi dealer can help me but they are closed now - hehe ;)

Don't think it is possible to reset user database directly from the MMI. I have looked through all manuals except Elsawin - suddenly a license problem :|

The boot lid motor could be that the struts need a bit of oil. 

Make sure you use the correct oil though.

That worked perfectly. Its still a little bit slow, but alot better! I used greeze, probably not optimal.. but got me a confirmation that the motor was OK. What kind of oil do you recommend?

 

Anybody got experiance with Rear Seat Entertainment System from Alpine? I have monitors in headrest and those works perfectly. In elsawin i read

"

The audio and video signals from the rear DVD changer -R162- are also reproduced via the MMI and the sound system of the vehicle."

But i cant find a way to play DVD in the front screen (MMI) - same with sound. I have tried all sources.

Any clue?

I would be asking if it is even a system feature to be able to show a DVD to the driver!!!!

But, then I suppose it is an Audi, so the driver doesn't need to pay attention anyway!

I know with the TV module, the TV goes off from the MMI front screen once the car is going over 5 mph.  You need to disable that with VAG-Com to enable it to carry on playing.  

 

Do you have the fitting invoice for the kit?  It might mention if having it piped to the front was installed?

Fix that line for you. +++

 

Personally, given a choice of a car with the rear screens fitted, I would avoid it and choose a different one.

But I can fully understand why people go for them.

 

what's the performance like?  :grin:  Is it like dialling in Warp Factor on the Enterprise?
