  • 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.

  • Pingback: VCDS for the new Q7 - AudiWorld Forums
  • 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.

  • 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 ?


  • 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,
    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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I update me rns850 vw 7p with software 1023 and hn+eu-vw p0823.
    now when I push media is loading all day.in setting/media I have tv function (me car don’t have tv install) cd/st card/dvd is missing.:(

  • 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

  • Hi Mr Fix, in the green menu, what’s the numbering identify? For example, battery by default is staying at no.5. What if I increase or decrease? Thank you Mr Fix. Very much appreciated.

  • 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

  • I might be looking at wrong videos, but how do you change region code for a MMI 3G (Q7 2012) which has been moved countries. I already have the software but donlt know how to install.

  • Hi,
    Please help me with some information. I have an Audi Q5 2011 and I have some problems with Side Assist. If I press button to activate this option nothing is happens ( the led is not open). From MMI I can adjust the intensity of led from mirrors. On VCDS I don’t have any errors:

    i got me a 2011 Audi S5 reimported from USA to germany. I made some usefull changes to the car with the hidden menue. My problem is; The radio reciever uses the american standard odd frequencies so i can not recieve even frequency stations. In the hidden menue i found under “radio – amfm – tunbandinfo” the option “Set to european standard”.
    When i click that the MMI restarts and i can recieve even frequencies. But after turning off ignition the settings turn back to US settings. Can you help????
