  • Hi Mr Fix I have an audi a6 le mans edition u.k spec and I have put on the battery meter and the date and time, ambience light and also the service intervall have gone any ideas please reply as soon as possible.

    • Hi! All those features can be coded back with diagnostic interface or enabled with hidden menu. Make sure if you are using MMI 2G or 3G system and look for hidden menu description for your system here on the blog.

  • Hallo.
    I have 3G system in my Audi A4 8k,My problem is, i Cannot see a/c menu in Mmi screen, so when i control heating or blower it not shows on Mmi screen. Can you help me ???
    Thanks for held.

    • Most likely you need to enable and enter hidden menu, then configure car options visible on the MMI screen. There’s HVAC somewhere there. Check:
      car > cardevicelist > air condition
      car > carprotocollswitch > air condition
      car > carmenuoperation > air condition

    • I have the same problem
      everything the same and dont show a/c menu and i dont have climatic control on the mmi screen

  • Dear sir .
    I have a problem in my mmi of a8 D4 2015.
    The small strange tow lines text at the left up corner of display such as ” ScreenID:6xxxx” “ScreenName:charismaMain”
    I cannot remove it.

  • Hello,
    I have a 2013 S5 and I cannot get to the green screen. I would like to enable my led daylight running lights to stay on when signal lights are on. And would like to increase the exhaust notes as well.

    Thank you for your help.

  • I have a 2016 Audi A4 sedan, and I would like to change the splash screen to the “S4” logo. Is this possible? My vehicle is equipped with the MMI screen as well as Navigation. I do not have a “SETUP” button on my console. Thank you.

  • Hello! Located in the US and have 2016 A8L 4.0T. Have successfully enabled green menu and followed Main/Diagnose/Settings/Import media. At this point it only shows me two boxes that are both checked/filled in- Ripping and Copying- as default. The 4 of 4 does not exist as I have seen in your video. I notice in your video at the top of the green menu it shows “EM (0.8g)”. At the top of mine it reads “. I have tried checking, unchecking one, both and rebooting and still can not rip/copy. Am I missing something?

  • So there is 2 ways to enable VIM on my 2012 audi s6? I have the ross-tech cable with vcds, but according to this i can engage VIM through the secret menu?

  • Useful information. Thank you.
    I have an Audi A8L with RSE Entertainment System. This RSE has a 3G MMI unit with hard disk and with its own keyboard. Could you please help me? How can I actívate the green menu in the RSE MMI unit? I can open the menu in the main MMI Unit using Menu+Car keys, but the RSE MMI Unit keyboard doesn’t have the CAR key…
    Thank you again.

    • I believe that RSE is not a separate unit. MMI, RSE, tuners, CD changers, controls, amplifier are all connected together as one system.

  • Hi, Hopefully I’ll find this on my own, however perhaps you can provide reference more quickly. I’m trying to find coding that enables the FM radio to stay on longer after ignition key is turned off. Seems trivial, but we attend drive-in-movies a good bit, and we constantly are pressing the power button for the radio on after it auto shuts off after ten minutes. And then we have to reset the volume, too, because it doesn’t remember last volume level. I’ve read on forums that I can increase the time the radio stays on after ignition shut off up to 99 minutes. That’s certainly better than the ten minutes it’s set at by default. Car is 2011 Q7 with MMI. Any help would be appreciated. Have VAG COM cable and have coded other models before, but have never done anything with MMI.

    • Yes, you can. Go to hidden green menu and look for onofftimer, there are standby values to adjust.

  • Hi, can i find more languages in the hidden menu? my frends have swedish but not i, got an 3g+

    • There are no more languages in hidden menu. You can check if there’s an update available for your navigation system that will bring new languages to you.

  • Hi
    I have 2010 S4 and the Satellite Sirius XM radio option is missing from the menu, i used to have it. What do i need to do to make it appear again? Located in North America

    • Check coding of the MMI module (Infotainment – 5F). You can also look around in hidden green menu for it.

    • Can you please explain this in more depth? A list of steps would be very helpful, haven’t had Sirius XM for a while now. Have both VCDS & Green screen enabled. [2010 S5]

    • Sorry to revive a old thread / question. I have this same issue and am trying to determine if it is a hardware or software issue. This occurred (disappearing sirius band) after taking my vehicle in for recall service and having new mmi software flashed. The dealer tells me it is a “coincidence”, but I think not. either way can you elaborate on your comment “Check coding of the MMI module (Infotainment – 5F).” What specific coding should I be looking for. I have an OBDEleven module on its way as well and am hoping I can use it to enable the green hidden menu as well. thanks.

  • Hi
    I have 2014 Q5 and lost ability to have google earth on my navigation after last update. I do not wish to pay for MMI connect to have this option, since it was working fine before. Any thoughts?

    • Most likely you need to recode your MMI because coding is lost or software changes require new coding.

  • I have a 2011 audi s5 i cant access the hidden green menu when i hold the car/setup button dwn it goes to car setup screen . Is there another way to access aux i am trying to connect dockboss to play music off my iphone via bluetooth

    • Are you sure that you have MMI system and not Audi Concert? Also have you enabled hidden menu first with diagnostic interface?

  • Hi Mr. Fix

    I’ve an Audi Q5 2.0TFSI Quattro 2010 with a MMI 3, i suppose.. i’m trying for days to enter the hidden menu, but it doesen’t work (Car + Setup for a few seconds). Are there more solutions to enter this menu? I would like to stream music from my iphone 6s via BlueTooth, without cable.. can you help me?
    thanks in advance

    • You need to enable your hidden menu first with diagnostic interface.
      You can stream music trough bluetooth in MMI 3G without retrofitting additional hardware.

  • Hi
    I have an Audi A5 3 door black edition on a 64 plate.
    When in the normal automatic drive mode I want the mini display (between the rev counter and speedometer) to show which gear is selected.
    When in manual and sport mode the gear number is displayed but not whilst in drive mode.

    Can I enable this?



  • Hello

    I wanted to update firmware to this Audi unit >>> HN+_EU_AU3G_P0530

    I enabled GreenMenu by SDCard and marked ” Ignore region and variant” and proceed.

    But i didnt pay attention so i made update to firmware HN+R_EU_AU_K0990.

    Thankfully unit is still alive, but PHISICAL button are remaped. So if i press Menu button will go to Tone, if i press CAR button will go to PHONE.

    Tried to flash HN+ firmware but i got error like “A variant conflict occured…”

    Big problem is that i CANNOT ENTER GreenMenu again so i can mark again “Ignore region and variant” and then flash back good firmware.

    Pls dont remind me im stupid and neither i was wrong.

    Few questions:

    How to enter GreenMenu again ?

    I have a friend with ODIS Program. Is there a way to mark “Ignore region and variant” by this or by other program by cable ?


  • Dear, i have audi s4 2010, i want to get access to hidden menu, but i can’t, i am pushing both car and setup buttons together, but nothing happens, what you think what is the problem and what you will advise to solve this problem. Best regards

  • Hi Mr Fix. I have an Audi A6 (c6) 2006 model. Is there any way to Reset the Service Alert once i have done my service without using VAG? Also, how can i enable the MMI to display Oil temperature?

    • MMI can not display oil temperature.
      You can reset oil reminder with MMI, but not the service reminder. You need diagnostic interface for that.

  • Hi,

    you write “stay away from bootloader options “. What option are bootloader relevant? I installed a backdrive camera on my own. It is not original Audi and uses the video in of my MMI 3G+ Touch. Can I activate it in green menu so that I do not have to switch it on via Media/Source manually? If I have video in in my MMI, do I have a TV Tuner? And where can I turn off deactivation of video when driving? Isn’t also possible in green menu? A lot of questions, please help :) thank you very much.

  • Hi,
    Hopefully you can help Mr Fix, I’m a nig fan of your youtube videos. I have just updated my firmware and sat nav to 2016 and have found 2 problems.
    1st – my dab radio function has disappeared just have normal am-fm now?
    2nd – my sat nav in 3D mode have lost the top line display of the map. but in 2d mode I can see full screen?
    I hope you can help.
    If not I still thank you in advance for all the other help videos you created online.

    • I don’t have much experience when it comes to firmware update in MMI 3G. It seems that something went wrong when updating DAB firmware or part of MMI coding is wrong so the main unit does not know that there is DAB connected to the system.

  • Hello.How can i remove from my audi 3G MMI left corner this little white words ( screenID: … and screenName: …)

    Thank you!

  • i received a 2nd carista ODBII module. it works now

    i enabled the hidden green menu in the adroid app and it looks OK and restarted the MMI
    i also shut the car off and came back the next day

    i tried to go into the hidden green menu using MENU and CAR button

    no luck. it either goes into the CAR or MENU scree , but not the green menu

    i have a 2016 Q5 TFSI

    does anyone else have this working?
    any tips?

    please advise

    • Press menu car for three second , release them pressing the confirm button…with me works like that to go green menu. Hope works for you too.


    • This sounds similar to an issue I had…
      I have a 2016 A6
      There are a number of different back-end menus as far as I know (MMI, RNC, etc..)

      Please excuse me if I am wrong and I can’t guarantee I am 100% right, but, I think this should help…
      Instead of Menu and Car, try Menu and Lower Left Control Button. This brings up my Green Menu and I believe it is the same one you are trying to reach.
      Most places, including OBD Eleven and others say to do this with the ignition ON but engine OFF or it won’t work.
      I found just the opposite… It did not nothing that way but worked perfectly when I tried holding the Menu and Lower Left Control Button for just under 20 seconds with the car engine ON.

      I will double check this ASAP (should be tomorrow). I know there is another menu that works on older systems with the Car and (setup or Menu) button, but, I believe for 2016 and newer, it is a different combo to reach the Green Menu. At least it is in mine.

      Again, not 100% sure, but, also know that this hasn’t caused any bad issues with my car. To get to this menu, I needed OBD 11 to unlock the feature (or perhaps Carista has it for Android devices, I’m not sure).
      I hope this helps and will double check on my end too. I’m not an expert and don’t want to give advice in anyway other than user to user experience and just trying to help from my own experiences with the system.

  • I’m stuck. I have added the Bluetooth all good phones work I can hear but the mic is not working. I saw the mic kit on eBay but I have gone all over chasing wires and can not find anywhere to plug the mic in to the mmi 3G system or the Bluetooth module it’s a 2011 q7

  • Hello MR Fix,

    Thanks for all the helpfull posts on the site. I’ve got a brainkiller (at least for me) how should I activate charisma complete? I’ve set the hidden menu :
    ‘car’, ‘cardevicelist’, ‘charisma’ activated
    ‘car’, ‘carmenuoperation’, charisma value from 0 to 1
    restarted the MMI and now I’ve got the ADS settings on my Car window. But it’s grayed out. Now I should connect my laptop and start VCDS to recode the car and make it all work propper. But on the internet I can only find solutions for Audi A4. At least I’m not getting there… Can you help?
    If not…Do you know how to get security acces in >09 Cent Elect?

  • Can I disabled DVD cut off/stops playing once the car is moving??? If so please how do I do this via green menu???

    • Can’t do it with hidden menu. Need diagnostic interface. Look for VIM (video in motion) enabling over here.

  • Thanks for keeping this web site with all this great information.
    I’m trying to turn off the “fast browsing” on my Sirius radio in my 2014 Q7 (US) and I cannot find the setting for that. If you know where I can turn that off, I’d be very grateful. Thanks.

  • Hi Mr fix
    Ive tried your coding from your website and all go OK vit my vcds + green menu but I realised I’ve lost Interior lighting setting where I could set the colour etc.
    It is enabled in green menu.
    What shall I do next? How to get this option back.
    It’s a audi a8 d4.

  • i have a 2013 Q5 with 3GMMI. I was able to follow your instructions precisely but i still don’t see the battery meter showing on the MMI. Is there a reason it doesn’t show?

  • Hi,

    I’ve a 2012 A4 Allroad and with MMI 3G. I’ve just updated the software and maps to 2017. The previous 2012 map was on a disk and the new one is on an SD card but the unit does not seem to look on the SD card for the map…..any ideas?


  • Hello Mr Fix, I retro fitted my a4 b8.5 with paddle shifters. Anyway I can enable them via green screen?

    • Green menu only effects MMI-related functions. You’ll have to use diagnostic interface to recode steering wheel module and transmission.

  • Hello mr Fix, I was wondering if I can use green screen to activate the parking sensor or would I have to use diagnostic interface…? Also am I able to activate blutooth music streaming via green screen.

    Thank you

    1 access the green menu
    2 how to do a main reset of the mmi, (not only the “select+car+tone”
    3 how to remove the phone contact memories which has been stored in the car.
    If you do know why the mmi goes into reset mode every time I start looking for phone contacts on the mmi system?

    Best regards
    Marius Arntsen

  • Hello Mr Fix, I have an Audi A6 AllRoad 2010 with MMI 3G+ Navigation HDD.
    The only problem I have is when Auto Clock is enabled it goes to German time zone, where the car was bought when I was living there.
    I have tried to change settings in the engineering menu associated with clock, but I was only able to activate or deactivate the functions.
    Is there a way somewhere to change the time zone?

  • Hello mr-fix! I’ve got a 2010 Q5 Prestige. After sifting through some comments on your Youtube channel and here, I now realize that the hidden menu needs to be “enabled” first before proceeding with the car+setup button process. I simply want to ask, how can I enable the hidden menu, then proceed to access the hidden green menu via the car+setup buttons? Is there a specific tool that I need to purchase beforehand? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

  • I made a firmware update, and I do not see the DVD drive and SD card when I press the media button

  • I see in a previous post a user had mentioned losing ‘sirius’ as an available selection option in the radio ‘band’ menu. I have a 2010 Q5 with the same issue.

    You had mentioned: “Check coding of the MMI module (Infotainment – 5F).”

    Can you elaborate on what specifically I should be checking?

    I played around in the engineering menu, but don’t see anything obvious to change / set. The dealer tried updating my MMI from P0110 to P0113 or P0114 (can’t recall off hand), but to no avail. The said the next step is to replace the MMI unit for $4,000. Obviously not going to happen.

    So, I purchased a replacement unit off of an eBay salvage yard and installed it myself, had the dealer remove component protection, and even with the replacement unit the ‘sirius’ band is STILL missing.

    At this point, I don’t know if this is a software issue, and hardware further down the line, such as the radio module in the rear left trunk…

  • Hello Mr Fix, I have a 2015 C7 that had the digital speedo and a couple of other options on the on board computer like Avg fuel consumption and short and long term memory.

  • I have a problem in my mmi of a6 c7 2013

  • Hi, I have retrofitted a used 4G0035061E DAB radio tuner unit and had component protection removed by a dealer. However there is no sound although the DAB is displaying correctly. The dealer suggests there is an amp fault and web research now shows that the 4G0035061E unit can be con configured for Bose or standard systems. I have the standard system, and guess it came out of a Bose equipped car. Therefore, is there a way, via the MMI screen, to change the system from Bose to standard on the tuner unit? Grateful for your advice. Thanks.

  • I just bought a 2009 Q5 and my new roommate has borrowed it a few times. I noticed that something wasn’t right each time he borrowed it. Is there a tool that will tell me if and when (date/time) a part went bad or was removed or replaced? I no longer let anyone drive my car and I would truly love to nail this bastard. I’m not mechanically inclined and he’s counting on that sprinkled with ignorance . Lucky him though I’m doing what it takes to audit and learn all about my Audi. Any input from anyone would be most appreciated! Help help!!

  • Ok, i have a few questions and hopefully i might finally have some useful advice on my q5 2009/10 that has the mmi 3g navigation.
    Im unsure where to start but bear “grr” with me.
    1:is there a way to update the navigation system for roads in Australia at a cost of next to nothing?
    2: i have only got 2 radio frequencys showing and wonding if there is a way to access dab radio or somehow update system to be able to get it.
    3: i have dvd jukebox sd slots and connector part for being able to play my music via aux in glovebox.. is there a connection that can make car fully equipped bluetooth wise instead of the short cable to glove box and to stop me from touching phone.. ?

    Sorry if it dont make sense but it seems my car either have fallen a couple things short to being perfect or its just needing to be updated or something…

    Oh i may aswell ask about reversing Camaras are they able to be fitted i have the sensors but not the cam..

    Thanks and once again sorry for the questions.

    What can I do?

    One more thing, how can I update the firmware. Is the first time that I am trying to work with Audi and I do not know nothing about it.

  • My 2010 S5 has the issue – seemingly common with MMI units built around that time – where the display screen shuts off above a certain ambient temperature. Audi forums indicate the root issue is software related, but provide no further details. Local Audi dealer was clueless. The parameter “FOT temperature” under the environment and ru menus looked interesting as a potential solution to this issue, but they (as far as I’m able to tell) simply display values, and are not adjustable parameters. Bottom line, are you familiar with this issue, and is there a way to fix it, either through VCDS or the hidden menus?

  • I have a bluetooth issue with my mmi on my 2014 a7. It will not find m iPhone 7 and any updates though sd cards and cd are not recognized. It will not factory reset and has about 30-40 bonded devices that can not be deleted. any suggestions?

  • Hi

    First of all thanks for your contribution to the community!
    I have an issue with my (retrofitted) MMI3G+… The “Parking Aid” menu is grayed out and I can’t get it to show. It’s probably worth mentioning that I just retrofitted the buzzer & button to activate the graphic displayed for the rear (only) PDC.
    Any idea of what has to be done to activate the “Parking Aid” menu (either in VCDS or the green menu)?

    • I believe that you should do it though coding of the [10 – Steer Assist] module. I might be wrong, so please check before making any changes:
      [10 – Steer Assist], [16 – Security Access], code: 71679, [07 – Coding], Byte 0, Bite 4, new value: 1

  • Thanks for the info on the Hidden Menu. I have a U.S. 2014 B8.5 S4 that I would like to change the comfort cycle on from 3 to 4 blinks. I have looked in the Central Electrics Module(09) but I have not been successful in finding the correct BYTE or BIT to enable this functionality. I am certain it is somewhere in this module but either it needs to be enabled on a certain BYTE on a certain Bit or maybe in the “MMI” via the hidden Menu. If you have any information/experience on resolving this issue, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
