      VCDS/OBDEleven Tweaks/Mods for Skoda Octavia vRS 2.0TSI MK3/5E

      These are the mods we've tried on the vRS that seem to work.

      To enable the above mods, you need to have a VCDS cable or an OBD Eleven dongle.

      Warning:

      1. ALWAYS take a back-up of your settings before you begin, this way, if you screw up something you can always go back to your older settings.
      2. NEVER touch any settings that you don't understand or aren't recommended to be changed. Changing them could lead to errors on the BCM/Airbag Module/ECU etc and might take a long while before you can restore them fully to the original settings.
      3. NEVER touch anything in Long Coding if there is no Description available.
      4. NEVER touch the setting that reads "Reset All Adaptations". I've had to learn it the hard way. It doesn't restore the settings to the older factory settings, it resets every module to ZEROS (0s). Good luck spending a few weeks fixing that.

      Perform any of these changes at your own risk. Gearheads or myself do not accept any responsibility for your car throwing errors or something bricking if you touch things that aren't meant to be tweaked. If you aren't sure, don't do it!

      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      How to Code using VCDS/OBDEleven?

      1. Always leave the Ignition ON, Engine OFF.
      2. If you scan with the Engine ON, you WILL see 8-10 Transmission Errors. Don't panic, this is NORMAL. Just Turn off the Engine & Scan again.

      List of Mods that work:

      Enabling refuel quantity in the Maxidot

      Controller 17 - Instruments
      07 - Coding
      Byte 10
      Enable Bit 4
      Do this manually on mine by editing the binary, you may not have a tick box for bit 4.
      You can change between gallons & litres with the 'Volume' setting.

      Enabling Laptimer in the Maxidot

      Controller 17 - Instruments
      07 - Coding
      Byte 1
      Enable Bit 3 - Lap Timer active

      Changing the number of flashes of the comfort (lane change) indicator

      Controller 09 - Central Electronics

      16 - Security Access - enter 31347
      10 - Adaptations
      (2)-Turn signal control-Komfortblinken Blinkzyklen - change the value from the default of 3. I think the range is 2-5.
      Set the Lights to Factory Default in the Infotainment System for the changes to apply.

      OR

      Select Control unit 09 (Central Electrics)

      Security access
      Access Code 31347
      Adaptation

      Adaption
      Go to Kanaal: Start_stop_voltage_limit
      Change to 12.1V ( Default setting is 7.6V)


      Enable trunk lid lock delay

      Prevents immediate locking of the trunk lid once you've shut it. Let's say you've left your keys in the boot by mistake, this will give you time to open the boot and retrieve the keys.

      Controller 09
      16 - Security Access - enter 31347
      10 - Adaptations

      Select Slave Module WWS371
      Long Coding Helper
      Disable Byte 1 Bit 4

      XDS Setting to Medium

      XDS is an electronic differential lock, and lets you grip the road when cornering fast. It improves responses to ensure an even safer drive. In moments of fast cornering XDS lightly brakes the inside wheel to prevent wheel spinning. The result is better traction and a reduction of any tendency to under steer. This tweak will vary the aggressiveness of XDS.

      Controller - ABS Brakes
