Can anyone tell me if this setting exists somewhere in the MK6's as well?Wow, this throttle response mod is great - it's really changed the way I feel about the car. I might even not chip it after this.
The throttle response on these cars is really wacky, and very frustrating to live with. The first 1/2 inch of travel is fine, but the next 1/2 inch does nothing. Then, after that, it kicks in again. I absolutely hated that.
Today on the Mk7 forum I was introduced to a throttle mod http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2491&highlight=throttle&page=68 (post 1155) that addresses this situation. I've only taken the car for a short test drive so far, but it seems to have tremendously improved the response - it is much more linear now.
Throttle Response Mod:
Open VCDS / Select / 44 - Steering Assist / Security Access / 19249 / Do It / OK / Adaptation / Channel (drop down menu) / Driving Profile Switchover / New Value (drop down menu) / Direct: Controlled over Threshold Value (original was Gradual, controlled by Time) / Do It / Yes / OK / Go Back / close, go back etc.
It would be great to know how this works for anyone else.
I have one its OK you can do some changes in coding like roll windows down with key fob and needle sweep. I was hoping for more live info like what you see on VCDS it might be there but i have not found it.
It's there, ShopDAP shows how to use it in detail on a couple of videos on youtube.I have one its OK you can do some changes in coding like roll windows down with key fob and needle sweep. I was hoping for more live info like what you see on VCDS it might be there but i have not found it.
Not possible with VCDS, unfortunately. The proper way will be to move your Circuit 15 power wire to a Circuit 30 supply on the backside of the fuse panel with new repair wires and a pin tool. Another way is to run a fused jumper wire from your ACC fuse to a fuse that's always hot (usually fuse 34/35 in the MK6, IIRC). Yet another way is to tear down your console, and physically run a fused wire to the hot side of the battery. This will place your ACC fuse in the battery box instead of the fuse panel, if done correctly, and is honestly the most straightforward method. An audio shop can perform this method for you for well under $100. Food for thoughti've been searching around for a way to make the front 12V power supply hot @ all times whether or not the ignition is on. possible or not? also would like to get rid of the ignition on door chime.
thanks for any insight
VCDS isn't going to help you.Might be unrelated to this thread, but can VCDS fix the light behind the Guage cluster info display in my mk6? It still displays all the info, it's just dim. The light used to pop on after a while, now nothing. Fuse maybe? If it's a pull-and-replace-Guage-cluster thing, then it's priority z...
