Just like a kid with a new toy @StudleyGlass
What did mean by Alarm lock signal, is that a just beep when you lock the doors ?
Yes it sounds on lock and unlock, will give it a try but may change as reminds me of the old moss alarm albeit not on a mg metro
Mmm I don't do beeping really lol
Going to swap headlights to fogs on coming home mode next I think , when I get a minute
Yes may try that myself, and where that's located
Its here apparently
Moss alarms. That takes me back. I was posh - I had a Waso
I have found this but how do you select fogs ? its just a tick box, do you have to change the letters in the box to the numbers?
@StudleyGlass it's binary, so a 0 is remove the tick from the box, and a 1 is putting a tick in the box.
If you look at the words at the end of the descriptor adjacent to the tick box of bit 6, i think it says something like "0 = headlight, 1 = fog light". Therefore tick in the box if you want it to be headlights; or, no tick in the box for fog lights. (Hope that helps).
I did this on mine on Friday, it looks amazing with LED headlights, cos it puts the LED sidelights on with the fogs.
Spent ages on Friday messing about trying to get dial sweep sorted on VCDS. Every time i went in it said it was active. Turned VCDs off, turned it on, no joy. Gave up, packed it away, turned on ignition to drive off, then like a royal tool, realised the dials were already doing it. What a prize knob head.
Thank you @DaveyB. I knew i was just being simple as usual.
Yes thats better just need to swap the bulbs now to some white ones instead of yellow
I think i have done all i understand in there now. There are a couple of headings about separate door locking , is this when you can just unlock the drivers door with a press but a longer press opens all doors , i have had this on another vehicle before?
I had a play with that function a couple of weeks ago, and did not get it to do anything different; one press of the key pad still unlocked everything. I was equally hoping that it'd be like other cars I've had where a single press unlocks driver door and a double press unlocks all other doors.
I'm sure the function must do something similar, I just couldn't figure it out.
Fogs and LED's
UPDATE my vcds has just updated to a new version 16.8.4, any one had a look at it yet , or has it only arrived today?
Am I correct in thinking that you are mainly paying for the cable as someone has said? Also are the software updates free ?
Yes software updates are free, all part of the licence and cable package from ross-tech
Mine does it from the factory!
I'm pretty sure it's part of the Comfort Dash package
Only the larger engines do it as standard
I had to turn it on for my 140
Turned mine on with carista. Makes me laugh every time I see it for some reason.
