    Firstly plug in your VCDS cable.

    The socket is just below and to the right of the steering column above the accelerator pedal.
    Then plug the USB end into your PC and start the VCDS application.

    If this is your first time using the software select Options

    Then [Test] to make sure the application can see the cable and communicate with the vehicle.

    Next it is important to perform and save an initial auto scan so that you have a record of the coding as it was before you make any changes.

    Now this is saved, you will have a record of the coding should you have a problem.

    Next section is the coding.

    First select the module to be coded
    Prog1.png
    Select module 09 Cent Elect (the list of modules may vary between vehicles)
    Prog2.png
    Next select the Coding button
    Prog3.png
    The module has a number of sub modules and these are selected using the highlighted menu.
    Prog4.png
    Select the sub module J386 (note that this list varies between vehicles)
    Prog5.png
    Next choose the Long Coding Helper which open a new window.
    Prog6.png
    There are a number of ways to use this helper, for this procedure we will edit the value directly at the top.
    Prog7.png
    After closing the long coding helper select [Do it!] to commit the changes to the module, you can cancel if you mess up and start the long coding again.
    Prog8.png
    Close the accepted panel
    Prog9.png
    Proceed to the second door sub module J387 and repeat the process.

    Finally open the long coding helper for the BCM itself. (top of the list)
    Prog4.png

    As before select the long code helper
    Prog12.png

    This time we will use one of the alternative ways to change the module coding by clicking on byte 3, Row 3) 4th box along. A number of Bit option tick boxes will appear and make sure Bit 7 is ticked.
    Prog13.png

    Choose Do it and commit the changes.
    Prog8.png

    Close the coding accepted panel.
    Prog9.png

    Close the controller.
    Prog14.png
    Select go back to return to the top level of the application.

    Now perform the re adaption of the "One Touch" window operation and you should be done.

    Hold window button down till window is all the way down, let go, hold down again and count to 3, pull up to the top, let go, pull up again, count to 3 let go and test. repeat for other window.

    Well done Loz, does this mean you now have your mirrors auto-folding, it seemed as though you may have had a snag.

    @Dino , suggest you click on the topic and have a read of the threads, as you will learn what you seek, but also see how powerful the kit is, and learn what to do with it and how careful to be ... I.e making full first scan, and saving it plus making notes before doing any changes..... It will be time well spent instead of just giving you the cost and where etc.. :thumbsup:

    Will this mean my mirrors fold up when I lock the doors?

    Cheers, so just to get this straight my highline with folding mirrors will automatically fold when I lock the doors like my golf gtd? It's a 2016 140 kombi highline. Sorry for the questions. Will this affect my warranty at all?
     
  18. carlg

    carlg 204 DSG Highline Kombi MY17 VIP Member T6 Legend

    Yes that's correct .and no reason why it should affect the warranty.
