Hi to all!

I need urgent help...

Becouse of an accident my ABS/ESP unit was damaged! I bought one used, but won't work becouse VIN not matched with my car.
VAG-COM gives me incorrect VIN error.

How can I recode or adapt this unit to my car?

I think I need the SECURITY ACCESS code... or not?


Please help me!


Thanks.

The [16 - Security Access] code should be shown in VCDS when you try to login.

My code is 61378 - maybe it is the same on your A4

I'm not sure - but maybe you need to have your Audi workshop removing the component protection??

Hi!

Thanks for the code is the right one. Now I updated my VCDS and shows me the same code in pop up.

The problem still remains for me, when I enter the code in SECURITY ACCESS it promt me code accepted, but when I go to ADAPTATION won't let me change anything! In fields shows me on channels " NEED SECURITY ACCESS" or something like that.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

What version of VAG-COM and cable are you using?

P.S. Asking this question in the B8 Forum might have been a better idea?

My personal experience with the security access login, is that you need to enter the access code, and then do the changes on the channel in question - then do another security access login and another change can be done.

If you just 'play around' and then decide to do a change, then the login has expired - and need to be done again.

Hi!

I went directly to ADAPTATION after SECURITY ACCESS, but nothing.

Where is the VIN learn option exactly?

Thanks.

Guys - please continue this discussion in the thread in the B8 Forum (link above). It may be of interest to other B8 owners and they're unlikely to find it here!
