Evening All,

Going to visit my sister at the weekend and her hubby has VCDS

I've read a few old posts regarding coding the fob to be able to close the boot, has anyone ever did this successfully?

Any other nifty ones that you would recommend?

Cheers in advance

I believe the fob can only be coded for remote close if you have Advanced key, else it can't. Happy to be proved wrong, but that's my understanding

To be honest I'm not into VCDS, the man who knows on here is Spike and I ink most, if not all VCDS options that are possible are already in (this) VCDS sub- forum. So probably worth a read through e threads in that section to see what can be done.

Most who have folding mirrors get the coding done to make the mirrors fold on locking the car.

My FL has Advanced Key and I can close the boot remotely - however it's sod all use in the real world, a one-time gimmick.

Absolutely correct, but only because you have to be standing right next to the bloomin' rear hatch and keep hold of the button while it closes......stupid really and Audi cannot say it's a "safety feature" because I can press the close and lock button on the hatch and just walk away while it's closing, it's a dumb implementation.

I coded mine to open and close with the remote, long press to open and a short press to close, works at the same distance as locking / unlocking so can have boot open when I get there

Do you have the advanced key? And if not can you post the coding for this :)

Cheers

Mine opens at the same distance as the remote locking no problem, it is the keyless/convenience key system that requires you stand close to the hatch when closing.
If you have coded your system to close the hatch at the same distance as the normal central locking, then that would be very useful and the coding info would be most welcome.

Some VCDS mods that work for 2016 Q3
I've been having a lot of fun with these mods after getting the RT cable. I've found that a lot of sites that document codes for the Q3 are actually posting lists for other Audi's and the codes don't work on the Q3. Here are some that I have done personally on my 2016 Q3. Many of these are already posted on this forum so I've duplicated them for confirmation but I've added some new ones too. I've arranged them in order of program sequence. Enjoy!

Haha, still appreciated though buddy!

Without sounding like a dum dum what do the 2 mods with the fog lights do exactly?

I haven't done them all, but think one will put fogs on with high beam and the other will switch a fog light on, on the same side the car is turning a corner, think it's at speeds less than 20mph

In the VCDS software running on your laptop which will be connected to the car by a VCDS cable.

I would advise strongly against having the DRLs stay lit when the DI is being used, the DRL is bright enough to completely obscure the DI and will be quite a hazard.
DRLs (LEDs) Remain on During Turn Signal

[09 - Cent. Elect.]
[Coding - 07] -> [Long Coding Helper] -> Byte 15
Bit3- Uncheck

Hi All,

I tried coding the tailgate to close with the remote key and also with the interior switch in driver's door (the one used to open the tailgate)

It worked for the interior switch but not with the remote key although i followed the instructions correctly.

Did i miss smthg ?
