  • Hi, I have a A6 avant 2006, I would like to close the mirrors when I park, and also put the parking brake automatically this can be possible?

    • In MMI 3G for sure, in MMI 2G cars not always. Depends on the drivers and passengers door modules. Your car is 2006, so it most likely needs replacing both door modules to activate that feature.

  • hi mate,

    audi C6 2006 , I have two questions.

    1. I know it is probably not possible but can I enable the Needle sweep / Gauge test / Welcome ceremony on it?
    2. Is there anyway I can tilt the mirros when I lock the car, not to have to turn the knob manually?


    • 1. not without replacing the instrument cluster
      2. not without replacing comfort module and/or door modules

  • Hi i got audi a6 c6 2006 i have problems with dual climate control buttons they oposite how its should be. I turn heating on driver side but it blows air into passenger side and its shows on the screen as well.

    • most likely you have to check climate control coding if the LHD/RHD settings is correct.

  • Hello,
    I have an Audi A6 07/2007
    I would like to change the control module to activate mirror tilt.
    Do I have to adapt or code it or simple mount the new control module and then activate that future ?

    • If you have electric mirrors you just need to code that feature.
      Remember that the adjustment knob needs to be in passengers mirror position.

  • Hi mr-fix.info. I have successfully installed my vcds software and followed your instruction to a T for the procedure to unlock my Audi A6 C6 2007 Sat Nav. I only get an error message. What can be done? Thank you Tim

  • Thanks for your great site. I’ve just borrowed a vcds and I’m having a few issues. When I try to follow your steps, I don’t see the long coding helper. I just get a screen that had four boxes. Software coding, workshop code, Importer number and equipment number. Any idea why I don’t see the option to click on long coding helper? I have a 2006 A6 Allroad.

  • On chanel 17(instruments) i do not have long coding option(audi a6 c6 2008)…how can i enable it?thanks

    Thank you!

  • Hello,
    I have Audi A6 C6 2011. It has MMI 3G High (with joystick). I am wondering if there is any volume adjustment, I mean if I can adjust how much volume to be increased or decreased with one click as my current step (1 click) is too strong or too weak. I would like to lower down sensitivity.

  • Hi mr fix I have audi avant 2008 c6 estate I purchased some retrofit rear led lights do u have the code for theses to work. Would be a great help as never attempted this before

  • hi

  • Hi,

    I changed to the coding on my AUDI A6 – 2006 Allroad, to active reverse mirror tilt. But it dosent work :-/ Do I need to do, something after I changed to code? (setup-wise)?

  • Hi, I have an A6 C6 4F 2010 and would like to know if there is any way I can have folding mirrors from remote key and if there is a hidden menu for MMI 2G High?

  • Hello I have a 2006 a6 c6 3.2l quattro is there a way to change the DRL to fog lights or the headlights with VCDS ? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

  • Hello, i own an A6 C6 2008 2.0Tdi and i have done a couple of the coding that are mentioned here. ( enabled green menu, disable seatbelt, mmi welcome screen change, activated the parking graphic, the ambient lightning, etc) and when i was trying to do the coding for reverse mirror tilt and needle sweep (which apparently need long coding) my vcds was not updated and had only soft coding, i changed some values but i came to a point to understand that the windows cannot be controlled (open/closed) with key anymore and the front passenger window has reverse controlls (up is down/down is up) any help with what values should i put there to put back to normal, thanks.

  • Hello,
    I own an a6 c6 Avant 2008 with mmi2g high and I have performed some of the coding mentioned (enabled green menu, activated visual sensor when reversing, disabled seatbelt and mmi welcome screen) as I was attempting to perform the tilting mirror on reverse coding I realized that my Vcds program was outdated and couldn’t perform long coding, but that didn’t stop me as I was looking on every forum for doing it and somewhere I read that changing or adding values +#### to original value and so I tried…but nothing really happened except for the front passenger window control, it became opposite from all other windows (3 windows go up, that one goes down) that didn’t bother me much but now this window is having another issue, it doesn’t fully closes, it will stay about 1cm opened and the sound of the wind is annoying and winter is coming so any tips or help you can give is very much appreciated, sorry for the long text, thanks.

  • Hello
    I have an Audi A6 4F 2008 with mmi2g and would like to know how I can add needle sweep as I can’t find with VCDS as it look my car doesn’t support long coding helper!

    Thank you
