    Mk2 Tiguan VCDS Tweaks

    Hi guys,

    Thought I'd start a thread on any VCDS tweaks people have had success with. I assume most of the ones that work for the Mk7 Golf would also work but will be great to know which ones actually do work! Any screenshots, pictures, videos associated with the tweaks would be great! I'll let you guys know which ones work when I get my car and get around to borrowing/buying a cable!

    These are the ones I'm keen to do on my Tiguan when it arrives:
    1) Deactivation of auto stop/start
    2) Memory retention of seat heater setting
    3) Deactivation of seat belt reminder
    4) Activation of Volkswagen Traffic Message Channel
    5) Driving school mode
    6) Air-conditioning recirculation memory setting

    BTW, courtesy of DV52, here is the

    Deactivate the Prevention of cars overtaking on the Right (Tigger73): Mk2 Tiguan VCDS Tweaks
    - This tweak is helpful on the freeway when you are not in the right lane and approach a slower car driving in the right lane.
    Usually the car slows to the other cars speed (annoying if the car in the right lane travelling at 100km/hr in a 110km/hr zone) and does not proceed past them.
    Deactivating this setting allows you to continue at your predetermined cruise control speed and pass the car in the right hand lane.

    Reduce throttle tip-in delay and improve responsiveness:

    Hillbilly's list of things tweaks that have worked: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XT_...TPRJFZyeG/view
    Additional things in that list include:
    - Puddles in mirrors when reversing
    - Enable change navigation whilst car is moving
    - Adjust speed in dash to be correct for cars with 20" wheels
    - Dynamic Light Assist (courtesy of Phonebooth) - I have tried this and unfortunately does not work for me

    Agreed please fully document these and more.

    An aside question. Would any of these changes have a negative impact on our VW warrantee?

    It's just selecting an option that is already available in their software so there should be no issues with warranty. You can get the dealer to set these for you too if you ask nicely (and you know the option that you want enabled/disabled).

    I've asked the dealer once to do a few tweaks, they said their systems don't have the ability or access to these specific options.
    Current:
    2017 Mk2 Tiguan 162TSI, R-line, White
    2020 Mk7.5 Golf R Wagon, White

    Don't really care about 6, but pretty much keen on the rest of these. Stop start is definitely high on the list.

    Hi boys (and girls?). I don't normally post on the Tiggy thread (I'm mostly on the Golf mk7 forum), but as you will be aware, the new Tiggy and the mk7 share the same MQB build platform. This suggests that VCDS tweaks for the mk7 might be applicable to the new Tiggy (perhaps?)

    So, on this assumption, there are at least 3 x different ways of neutralising SS on a mk7 (that I'm aware-of - there could be more)

    1. Coding change to the Byte3, Bit 2-3 on the CAN Gateway module @ address hex19 - The factory value for Bits 2-3 are hex04 for SS active (i.e. Bit 2=1, Bit 3=0). To disable SS, change this to hex08 (i.e. Bit 2=0 ,Bit 3=1)
    2. The "Temperature method"
    3. The "Voltage method"


    Because not much is known about the new Tiggy's CAN network, I wouldn't suggest tinkering with the CAN Gateway code-string just yet - so option I is probably not viable at this time.

    But Options II and III are low risk because they just involve changes to Adaptation channels - which can be simply reversed if needed.

    So - here's the question: has any owner of the new Tiggy made an adaptation channel map of the control modules in their car and in particular can anyone post-up the admap for the CAN Gateway?This will show us what channel identifiers are in the module.

    Don

    PS: If you haven't made a full database of you car, then I seriously suggest that you do so. One of the distinctive features of MQB platform vehicles is their reliance on adaptation channels. Here's a sobering statistic - my mk7 has in excess of 5,500 adaption channels in its CAN network and just under 40% of these are in the BCM. And my car has only 14 x control modules - so it's not a highly optioned vehicle. An accurate database of adaptation channel settings (in the car's virgin state- before any changes are made) can be very valuable when tweaks go "pear-shape". Make a full set of admaps, you won't regret it!!!!

    Can I have that again in English??? Shoot that all seems very complicated!
