New Car: Eleanor the Audi A4.

Recommended Posts

I have acquired a new car at the weekend. A 2005 Audi A4 2.0 TDI. Remapped - very quick and quite loud (Sports exhaust - possibly a Tony Banks in Leeds Exhaust will have to check).

Drives absolutely cock on.

Gave it that name because it reminds me of the Mustang in Gone in 60 Seconds (Colour).

Has 145'ish K Miles in reality, but clocks say 175k as there was a replacement engine fitted, before engine went in Belts and clutch where doen as well as Turbo.

Its not perfect, there are a few jobs that need donig - first and foremost it needs tunes. Audi Concert keeps locking up (TADTS) and only way to shut it up is to remove negative battery lead.

Keyfob needs a reprogram, going to need VCDS for that (Might have to borrow an cable for it) - if you change the battery in the key, it then needs resyncing to the car. Ive tried the methods online to no avail.

Body work is tidy enough - it still has arches!

 

Thats it so far. Will updat on progress as things move along...

You need a canbus VCDS cable, there are loads of people near me selling knock-off versions on marketplace. Mine works great. I paid £40 for mine, not from this seller but I reckon they are all selling the same stuff (as they are circa £20 on aliexpress)

Quick Update.

 

Glove Box Handle fitted. 5 minute job - once I had found the handle on ebay that was not £90.

 

 

Dash cam is now fitted (Piggy backing off of Wipers Fuse)

VCDS - Hex-2 lead has arrived - had a quick play around with trying to to the adaption for programming remote key fobs but Alas, did not get very far. Why my VCDS looks differnet when I go into the adaption part I am not sure - suspect CCM might be at fault.

No photo description available.

My drop down at the top doesnt work, (No Documentation Availble) supposed to be able to drop that down and hit Remote Keyfob Programming.

 

Investigations continue.

It says key adjustment though so I think you're in the right place.

I think you just need to go:

New value 1 > test > press button on key 1 > save

New value 2 > test> press button on key 2 > save

At the top where it says Key Adjustment you should get Key Recognised or something like that when you press the button on the key.

You should be able to swap the remote part over from that key onto the head of the other and have 1 key that does everything.

You can pair used remotes on these, there are a few different part numbers which are not all compatible so I guess maybe the one that came with the car is somehow not compatible?
