No, this is fine. I see on the about page it is registered and it picked up my details correctly from the .vca file. I could also run the auto scan which is not enabled when not registered.I am wondering if the VCDS key (the file Rosstech send you, a. vca file) ), has been installed fully? Worth checking perhaps. Sounds like the Basic Settings functionality is not enabled (as with the free version), which the . vca file does.
Hi,I unplugged N316, as a side note VCDS did not detect that this had been unplugged (no open circuit error). The resistance was 32.6 Ω, Green/Yellow wire 11.9v, Purple/Yellow 3.6v. To me there is nothing obviously wrong with that sensor or connection. I confirmed that the linkage moved when I sucked on the vacuum pipe and that the connector was plugged correctly. Running the adaption, the measuring block 142 showed the same as I wrote in the previous post and clicking on basic settings showed the same, nothing changed after leaving it for a couple of minutes. Is there a way for VCDS to show the output of the potentiometer (G336). It is difficult to access. Do I have to strip down the intake manifold again to access/replace?
The measurements were made between the pin and the alternator case.When you took the voltage readings (Green/Yellow wire 11.9v, Purple/Yellow 3.6v), were these between those wires, and grnd/chassis? If so, I'd expect one to be 0v, assuming it's a two wire solenoid.
I'm wondering if there's a wiring problem between the N316 and the controller. Those voltages don't seem right, like they are "floating" and no errors with it disconnected, it should report "OPEN" surely?The measurements were made between the pin and the alternator case.
We need the measuring block numbers for the G336. We also need a VCDS Guru, so we can log that data while driving, and monitor the flaps in real time. Will continue to look for the answers.
Is the old post #25 above before this current thread revival any use? - AndyWe need the measuring block numbers for the G336. We also need a VCDS Guru, so we can log that data while driving, and monitor the flaps in real time. Will continue to look for the answers.
