Enable VIM TV-playback using VCDS/VAG-COM in your Audi MMI

Now, this is something for the Audi folks. If your Audi is equipped with a MMI TV-module or a DVD-player, security restrictions have been applied to stop video-playback while your car is moving above a certain speed threshold. This feature is also called VIM (Video In Motion) lock. There’s a guy from Russia who offers a VAG-COM/VCDS based solution to disable this restriction but a) he wants your precious money for this hack and b) he needs online access to your computer and to your car to set the VIM threshold. There are also expensive, CAN-based programming cables on the market for the same purpose.

Changing the VIM-threshold requires you to set a higher threshold value to a so called adaptation channel in your MMI head unit. Unfortunately, this channel is read-only unless you use a proper login code first. The login code is derived from a unique component ID in your car. Once you know this number you can write to that adaptation channel and set the threshold to any value you want to, whenever you want to and as many times as you like. Please read the instructions to learn how to obtain the component ID (it’s not the vehicle ID number VIN) from the MMI head unit. This component ID then has to be entered in the VIM code calculator.

Using some creative witchcraft (I can’t be more specific but it didn’t involve any of the mentioned commercial solutions) I figured out how the VIM unlock login-code is being calculated. I wrote a free web-based VIM-code generator so anyone can disable the VIM restrictions, you just need someone with a VAG-COM/VCDS to do it for you. If you don’t own a VAG-COM/VCDS diagnostic cable you may be interested to know that there’s a VAG-COM locator available.

Fortunately, the VIM unlock login-code generation algorithm is the same for the MMI 2G and 3G (at least as of July 2009), so yes, using the generated login-code you can enable TV/DVD-playback at all vehicle speeds for the MMI 3G as well!

Depending on the MMI system generation you want to VIM-enable, click one of the following links to get to the detailed instructions. This is MMI 2G/3G only, I won’t offer a solution for RNS-E based systems.

Click here to learn how to enable VIM for the MMI 3G

You can either use the links above to generate your personal login-code or download a Windows based generator here.

  1. Hi Guys,

    I’ve a A3 (8V) 2015 model

    I’ve had a go at unlocking. I used both the primary and alternate code.
    After the 1st code didn’t work, I did as instructed with the Ross Tech instructions saying wait 10 minutes with the ignition on before trying again with the other code.
    Alas no luck.
    Video stops playing as soon as I move off.
    My serial is:
    A300B0F7514305
    personal login-code is 00154 (alternative code is 01435)
    Any ideas ??

  2. I have an Audi A7 2014. When I enter the security access 16 I get a lot of codes but none that say serial number.
    It’s a 3g+ MMI system.

    Can anyone tell me what number I should use, is it in a standard format. eg:189E40C7504886

    I have a Equipment/PR Code 036F0ABF4334540B but when I enter this in the keygen machine it generates a five digit long code including a letter which can’t be entered

  4. Working on two diferents MMi. Both with first code option on a RS5 2011 (8T3)
    MMI 3G High OK
    MMI 3G Plus OK

    Thank you very much for your effort

  5. I need help with VIM with at 2015 A3 (NO navigation and NO DVD). I connect my phone through MMI and picture shows on my screen but when I drive over 15 MPH it goes away. HELP PLEASE!!!

  6. No luck on a 2016 A7. Many of the options, menus are just not there anymore, seems the programming has changed and VIM may just not be supported anymore. For example, there are many 48s now and none were relevant. There is no “Read” option where needed, etc Things have changed, too bad..

  7. Audi A6 C7 2013
    Sesial number is K5FAN17BAP5GM
    But can’t using unlock code(is not number)
    How I can get the code for “Security Access – 16”.

  8. 2016 Touareg. Awesome instructions….only a cheap miserable fool could complain…..worked perfectly. Thank You!

  9. The two generated codes did not worked at all on my MMI 3G of my 2015/2016 8v A3 Sedan. Tried using Ross-Tech VCDS cable and latest software.

    Any update in the code generator or or other solution?

    Thanks in advance!

  10. I just got 2015 Touareg TDI lux, and the code generator worked just fine. Code : 08056, the alternative code: 00665 got it enabled in 2 min.

  11. Audi A6 C7 09/2011 3G+

    Sesial number is K5FAN192A76YD

    But can’t using unlock code(is not number)

    what is my unlock Code?

  12. Audi A6 3.0TDI 09.2011 3G+

    Serial number: K5FAN192A76YD

    can’t using unlock code what is my unlock code?

  13. Hi guys,
    Works well on Audi A5 2012 (facelift), MMI 3G+
    Thanks for the generator – saved me some time to mix and match digits from SN :)

  14. coding worked for my Audi Q5 2.0tdi from 2010 with MMI high. Value was 0 and changed it to 255.
    Thanks for providing this!

  15. It worked fine on my new VW Touareg 2015 R line. First code generator.
    Thanks,
    Laurie.

  16. GGrrrrrr!!! :(
    Impossible on Audi S3 8V with Vagcom… Every people tell me the VCP cable is an obligation ; is the truth?

    • it is imposiible for now, I hope VAG-COM solution as described above comes in a few months :)
      But for now it is possible with VCP

  17. That´s good, we did it in a Audi A7 3.0 TDI 2012.
    Tank you very much

    Best regards from Spain

  18. Looks like all the MMI for 2015 cars do not work with the current generator.

    Any kind soul to help?

  19. It does not work with 4G MMI on the 2015 Audi S7. Does anyone know where to get the 4G code generator?

  20. Hello

    Tried this on a model year 2015 a6 avant (picked it up brand new today) – the new face lifted one – its with the tech pack so it’s the higher of the two sat navs with the hdd, Google maps, etc.

    Both codes generated as a result of the serial no failed to allow me security access. Any thoughts please?

    Very much appreciate your help – and this is a fantastic service that you provide! I just hope this will work on a 2015 model

    Thanks

    Mark

  21. Worked for me on a 2006 A8 D3 with 2g mmi. The first code didn’t work, I waited 10 minutes with engine running to try again and the second code worked perfect! Thanks.

  22. Well I think I answered my own question today although it doesnt seem hopeless. The car has a B&O system, and with the generator I was able to generate a proper security access code which granted me access to adaptation channel and when entering security access code, security access granted was the msg I was greeted with, putting in the second code gave me a code not accepted or something else. Anyways does anyone know what channel the VIM adaptation is on in the 4G B&O System.

    Thanks
    Frankie

  23. Hey whats up. Does anyone know i this works on a 2015 Audi A8? Anyone who can answer this would greatly help me from having the car travel to me or not.

    Thanks

  24. Hi, Tried VIM-HACK on a -15 A6 allroad MMI 4G – with no luck… Any chance you’ll update the hack?

    Thanks in advance,

  25. Hello.
    I’ve used your Login-Code-Generator at yesterday. I works fine for my VW Touareg from 2011 with the RNS 510 Radio and the VCDS 12.12.2 .

  26. Hi,

    im from Germany,- SN 428A/ works perfect !!! Musicvideos from SD Card absolut great.
    A6 5G,2012, MMI 3G Navi +

    Thanks a lot for your great Work

  27. Worked without a problem on my 05 A8L D3 4E. 2G MMI SW version 5150.
    For those interested read on!
    A lot of A8’s sold in Australia (and other Audi models) were fitted with a dedicated Analog receiver which after late 2013 became useless crap here as the old system was superseded by Digital TV signals. Audi wanted 4k + fitment costs to update so after some research etc a genuine second hand Hybrid unit (part No 4E0910148E) was purchased for around AUD $400.00 from eBay out of Europe in early 2014. After i fitted the unit it worked as expected without issue then used the procedure listed for VIM and it worked also without issue. One thing i did notice while having VCDS connected at control module 07/Id-1A and having the TV active before doing any adjustments etc that the MMI displayed a Diagnostics screen that i wasn’t aware of that showed technical info about the receiver and reception strengths etc in real time. This screen disappeared after the values were installed, screen went blank then rebooted as instructed. TV rescanned available channels and it all works as intended. A BIG THANK-YOU to the person involved for sharing their tech knowledge.
    Cheers.

  28. it works wonderfully on a A7, Produktion Date Dezember 2011, with a MMI 3G with great Display.
    The only Thing you have to do is a firmwareupdate, that makes VCDS automatically…But there is no Problem with that.
    Afterwards the procedure works as described. The Code 5F at the beginnig was not able to select, so you can put it at the Field: direct entry. adress Word(01-FF) you type 5F and then go.
    The rest is exactly as described.
    The Software VCDS (Version 12.12.3) i had installed on a Windows 7 Professional 64Bit…SP1…on a old Notebook (Lenovo ThinkPad T61) 2.1 GHz dual core CPU T8100, 4 GB Ram, Thanks to all

    pensar que cobran vendiendo una interface, esto se lo hare gratis a mis amigos q tengan audi :)

  34. Hi everybody

    i just bought a cable vag-com with the software VCDS for my A1
    I”m looking for the serial number for VIM but even when I.m passing by 07 -Advanced ID. It’s scan my car put every informations on it but there is on serial number even when I”m searching by the Green menu’

    My MMI’s version : RMC-EH-P11474.
    Thanks a lot

  35. This worked on my A1 Sline with technology pack.
    The serial number had a % in it but once I put the code in minus the % it worked fine.
    I didn’t have to reboot the system. Once I went for a drive it worked fine.

    • @Snake: what kind of cable did you use on the 2013 Q7? I read conflicting posts (kCAM or VAG COM). Just want to make sure I acquire the correct kit. Thanks.

  36. My A4 2010/02 accepted login code generate in web but not work DVD in moving..

  38. Yes!Doesn’t work this coding on A3 8V.This is very different from all the others AUDI. That’s new Function codinf type. Maybe the long vehicle coding number is relative…

  39. This does not work for the New Audi A3 with touchpad, does anyone know how to get this working? is there a different code generator?

  40. Bonjour j’ai fait la manip préconisée pour avoir le dvd en vision à toutes vitesse sur MMI 3G ça a fonctionné!!!AUDI Q5Ambiance luxe V6 3Litres 240Ch année2011 Octobre J’ai bien reçu mon code personnel et aussi le code Alternatif je me suis servi du code perso et OK.Merci beaucoup de cet explication et surtout du générateur de codes Maintenant je peux proposer un film à mes passagers !!!

  44. Hello everbody,

    please if someone has instructions for get component id, mentioned above,

    “lease read the instructions to learn how to obtain the component ID (it’s not the vehicle ID number VIN) from the MMI head unit. This component ID then has to be entered in the VIM code calculator.”

    post info, how to get component ID, is that serial number, and how to get it?

    Thanks!

  45. Worked a treat on my 2013 Q5. WondaBar!!!!!!!
    Just wondering is there any way of changing the valid file format on the SD card reader so it can play video files?

  46. Hi.
    Do you know how to do it with VAS5054A. The “Select “Security Access – 16” ?
    Select “Adaptation – 10”
    Select channel 48
    I can’t see any channels in adptation.

  47. Hey guys I have and Audi A7, my AC just stopped working when I click on AC it does not light up any ideas? I get air with no AC. ; /

  48. Worked perfectly fine on my Audi Q7 3Tdi 2010 model. Even gave me an alternate security code.

  49. Hi,

    I have just used this code generator and vcds on my 2013 A6. Has worked a treat now have tv on the go (if there is reception) and can watch a dvd also on the move. Had to use the later re set technique after but apart from that just followed the instructions on this site.

  50. Hello!
    Tell me please, can your “generator” work with “Discover Pro” on the VW Golf 7.
    If not, is there a way?!

  51. I wanted to say thank you for the detailed steps provided for VIM in my 2012 Audi C7 A6…..It worked the very first try and my kids will forever be grateful!

  52. Hi trocomalo
    Unfortunately that is true.
    It appears to be impossible to switch off the video in motion on the basic system.
    There are hundreds of people who would be very happy if we could find a way to do this for that set up.

    So unless you can see the serial number in controller 5 F you are unable to do this.
    But there are other options. You can buy a part that guts into the diagnostics socket and that stops the screen from shutting off when you are moving. But that costs money I think around 100 pounds sterling ( I am not sure).
    But google it and you will find where to buy them.

  53. I select the control module 5F, after select the Advanced ID – 1A. When intro, no show the number serial.

    In audi q3 navigation BASIC isn’t compatible this process?

  54. Hi Trocomalo,

    Sorry but only certain combinations of MMI will show you a serial number in the 05 controller.
    No serial number = no ability to switch off the “video in motion” sorry.
    Steve B

  55. Excuse me, my model car it’s Audi Q3 navigation basic. I worked with vcds in version 11.11.3. I cant find the number serial. The number serial isn’t.

    Excuse me for my english

    Thanks

  56. Hello, I have the Audi Q3 with the basic mariner. Across the cable, I can see with the iPhone 4 videoes on the screen of the MMI, but when the vehicle is circulating, the sign of video is blocked. I have entered the module 5F to realize the process of activating video in motion but the switchboard does not facilitate the serial number to me to be able to generate the code. Since I can obtain the serial number of this switchboard. Do you need some information more? Thank you

  57. WORKS, TUAREG 3, 2011 3,0 TDI BM. FIRST TIME ERROR BECAUSE I FILL WRONG NUMBER, THEN WAIT 10 MIN, AFTER OK.

  58. When I enter the security access key, I get a Controller refused the key! error 35: Invalid key. My cable works and I can see everything just cant get passed the security code? I have tried both codes? I turn the car on for 10 min and try the second code with no success?

    Your personal login-code is 03699 (alternative code is 06959)

  59. If you bought it off ebay for $50 or less it’s probably not a real cable. :)

    Ross-Tech is the genuine manufacturer. http://store.ross-tech.com/shop/cat/VCDS.html.

    The cable also functions as a hardware authenticator (dongle) for the software, so genuine software has to run through a genuine cable.

    Folks sell hacked versions of the software that will work on cheap cables, but it is not upgradeable (and of course illegal / pirating / bad karma / etc)

  60. Pugsly how do you know its the real cable? it says HEX+CAN Dual-k & CAN USB interface for VCDS.

  61. I used it no problem on my 2012 A7 (USA).

    If you bought a real vag-com cable then there will be no problem getting the software upgrade. If it is a pirated version then downloading the new version will break the hack.

  62. Hey guys I just purchased the vac-com cable. It came with version 11.11.3 can I update to version 11.11.15? I read on the instructions not to update the software? I am having problems entering the personal login-code is 03699 on the bottom right it has another square to input data do I leave that blank?

    could my car not support.
    Press “Do It!”. If you receive a “code not valid” message try the alternative code. If neither code works it’s likely that your control module doesn’t support VIM adaptation.

    Thanks guys!

  63. Yes.

    How do you know which tv’s/models this guide works with?

    How do you check for 2g/3g?

  64. Need help, has anyone got it to work on a Audi A7 2013? I followed the instructions with no success. :(

  65. Hi,

    How do i know which instructions to follow?

    MMI 2g or MMI 3g? How do i know which car has what?

    Thanks

  66. Andi,
    Make sure you do a hard reset on the nav unit when you finish setting to 200km. Once you hold down the buttons it will not just reboot on its own, hold them down together for like 5 seconds and release. At that point it will reset the nav unit. Also, put a DVD in before you even start and confirm it will pllay and stop when trying to move

  68. I am trying to do it on my 2011 A4, how to I get the serial number and where to I find and start to do point 1…(control module 5F in VAG-COM/VCDS)? Any help would be much appreciated.

  69. i have a 2012 audi a5 cab with 3g nav. tried all the steps the codes generated did not work however when i went in to security is actually gave me the code, i went into adaptation but i can only change channel 48 to a max of 200 and not 255. i followed all the other steps but it still doesnt work….what am i doing wrong why wont it work

  70. Worked perfectly on Audi A6 4F 2009 model year on MMI 3G+ with hard disk and with adaptive cruise control! Thank you guys!

  71. Hi to All,
    Generator work well on Audi A7 4G Model 2011 MMI 3G +, with hard disk. Bought in Russia.

  72. It worked perfect on my Audi Q7 2010 S-Line TDI.
    the video was inactivated so easy.
    Thank you so much.

  73. Then if you follow the instructions on this site you will see the serial number. The only thing I can think that would be different about your car is that it is a 20011 and mine was a 2012 model?

    But the instructions on here do work.

  74. Hi

    It is none of these. It shows as the serial number only but not all A1s can have this option changed by VCDS.

    The A1 can only have the video in motion switched off if you have the 3G version of the AMI.
    It is only a few owners that are able to do this. If you have the top spec system you will be ok. But anything less than this you cannot switch off VIM.

  75. ITS FLASH TOOL CODE 8928399501936?
    OR HARDWARE NUMBER 8X0035192A?
    OR EQUIPMENT PRCODE 0000004C70B42010?
    PLEASE HELP ME THINKS

  76. please can you help me for the number serial i have get 5F AND 1A ID
    where the number serial?

  77. Done in 5 minutes, 2012 A6 Brazilian version with advanced package. Thanks to everyone that worked on this!

  78. Worked perfect. Was done in 5 minutes.
    Audi Q3 mid 2012 build for Germany.
    To do the reset at the end it needed the TONE,CENTER and TOP RIGHT buttons.
    Thanks a lot to the person who provided this info and passcode generator.

    I want to unlock my video in motion?

  80. Hi, I worked great.
    Have a Audi A6 4F Model 2009 MMI 3G +, with hard disk.
    Thank you, keep it up
    I’m from Germany

  81. Another satisfied user. Worked as described – on my USA 2013 A6 Prestige. As others have said, the “Menu” button is used wherever the “Setup” button is called for in the directions.

  82. Worked perfect on my USA 2013 S5. Just note what others have said about the 3G MMI not having a “setup” button, so for the reset, you need to use the “Menu” button instead with the other two buttons to “reset”.

  83. @Audi
    Desolé, mais tu dois vraiment mal t’y prendre car je l’ai fait sur 3 véhicules différents et les 3 codes VIM fonctionnent!

  84. Au top!
    Le générateur VIM-login code fonctionne à merveille ; ça m’a pris 2 minutes avec mon VCDS, et je peux désormais (enfin pas moi, mes passsgers!) regarder DVD et Tuner TV en roulant (à n’importe quelle vitesse).

    Merci encore!

  85. Jan thanks for the intel you’ve provided on this site! I’ve been using it for years, and has worked flawlessly.

    As a suggestion, I’d ask that you add to the “enable VIM on Audi MMI” page, for resetting the MMI on newer models with the touchpad system. It simply changes from using the SETUP button to the MENU button, the other two buttons remain the same. I’ve run into this on 2012 A6, A7, and A8’s recently….

  86. Very good!!
    Perfect at first glance in my 12/2008 A6 Avant(2009 Facelift model).
    Many, many thanx!!!!!

  87. Worked great on a US A7. I’m curious – how do you generate the security code, would like to do this for other modules…

  89. This method worked perfectly with the VAG-COM cable on my 2012 A7 Prestige. Also as stated previously, must use the “Menu” button instead with the center and upper right to “reset” the MMI.

  90. Thanks! Worked perfectly on my MY11 Touareg RNS850. Finding the head unit serial was not very clear in the instructions. For those having trouble trying into figure that out you retrieve the serial number with the VAG-COM/VCDS on the following page [5F – Information Electr]. Secondly for the VW 3G MMI restart hold down the five keys Phone/Climate/Nav/Traffic/Centre knob.

  91. Hi, my Audi Q5 2009 (Korean) has quite a different serial.
    It starts with “K”… K5FAN181A32V9
    and your generator replies 0VA93, which was not accepted.
    Please help…

  92. The code generator worked great on the 2013 RS5 (U.S. version). Since there is no “Setup” button on these cars, must use the “Menu” button instead with the other two buttons to “reset”.

  93. the code worked on my 2010 audi b8! cant wait to test it out!! now only if somebody could unlock the sd card to play movies!!

  94. It works perfectly on A1 MY 2012 with MMI Plus, no way on MY2011 and MY 2012 with Concert Radio OR Concerto plus Nav

  95. to comend and ask for help? please tel where your from. I cant see it on the internet. iam from holland so when you com from the nederlands you can ask me?

  96. Well, I’m not pretty sure!! One guy in the Audi dealer did it for me,
    and he told me that he used both codes and neither one worked.
    But I think, I’l buy the Vag.com interface and try it myself.
    He got scare if the interface asked something like” are you sure?
    or something like that.
    Did you used the code generator from this trick77 to generate your code?

  97. Worked great on my 2012 Q7. Used a ross-tech USB interface and the first code that was generated. The “are you sure” message got me nervous. My wife would have killed me if the NAV was messed up as the dealer is closed for the weekend ;)

  98. I have a Q7 2011 AUDI.
    I did everything for 3G , generate the 2 possible codes,and it accepted them,but it did not work. it stop at the final process and marked as an error..
    what can I do to deactivate the in motion thing?

  99. Hi

    You need TI find someone local to you with a VCDS cable.

    They should be able to make the changes for you.

    You may have to google “VCDS” in your area.

    Steve B

  100. Hi Angel

    I doubt very much that your dealer would make this change for you. It is something that could be classed as illegal or at best something tgAt a dealer should not be doing.

    So you would need to fInd someone other than a VW dealer to do this for you.

  101. I have a 2012 vw touareg tdi. Will this work in my car too??please let me know ASAP! I’m going to dealership this morning and they can fix it for me

  102. Audi A6 2.7 tdi 163ch year 2007 MMI 2g Hi
    Thanks it works i can see the TV now i folow the process and everithing is perfect…
    Merci!!!!!!!!!

  103. This looks like the place to be. I just generated my code. I have not tried it yet. I need to buy or borrow the VAG-COM/VCDS sw and cable from somewhere. I also am still not sure if I have a 2G or 3G. can anyone tell me. Navi Model # 4F0035082A, on a 2010 Q7.

    Now for my real question: what I really am looking for is how to get euro maps to work. I am in Germany and car is US specs.

  104. Hi I just bought Audi Q7 last week. i am still going through the functions. how do i inknow if its MMI 2 or 3 G?

    do i need any wire to do any of the above? my comments it look simple but by article it seems complex.

    any help please

  105. I meant it should NOT make that much difference. iPhone keying mistake!!!!
    Steve B

  106. Hi
    It was on the VCDS screen in the serial number field.
    I just followed the instructions on here and it was displayed.
    Somepne suggested that it could be that because I have the tech pack that I can see the number. But I am not sure about that. It should make that difference

    Steve B

  107. works perfect for the MMI 2G High in my Audi A6 Avant 4F 3.0 TDI quattro. Thanks! Was absolutely easy to handle!

  108. Just had a friend from GHE tuning in plymouth follow the info on the site with his vag com on a 2012 A4 and has worked perfectly ;-)

  109. I have a 2011 A4 with Nav, would this VIM hack allow me to output my iphone screen via MMI to the NAV screen? That is what interests me the most.

  110. I’m looking forward to activate it on My A1 MY2011 with concert radio, can’t find sn, any idea?!

    @RG: how did u get it? Thanks

  111. The access code doesn’t work on a 2012 S5. Also the alternative code doesn’t work. :( I have tried multiple times, tried different codes first, tried driving 30 minutes between tries, tried different days.

  112. @Carlos &Justin: you need a vcds vagcom Hex Can usb cable with windows based software from Ross Tech to access for serial then use trick77 suggested method to generate access code to enable vim. I was lucky I bought the cable from ebay at 66 pounds, comes with software (beta version from Ross tech). My local shop charges above Aud 400 for the cable.

  113. Successful with first attempt on generated code via vagcom on Audi Q7 MY12 from Sydney, Down Under

  114. Hi,
    I used the VIM login code generator yesterday for an Audi A4 3.0 TDI, 2009. It works perfect and the procedure is very simple.
    Thanks.

  115. I would like to run my brazilian’s dvd in my Q5 but the system does not allow it. Any clue how to break the system and turn the the dvd to a multi-region one?
    Thanks for your help
    Sergio

  116. Following your instructions, I’ve been able to enable bluetooth on my A5 MMI 3G.

    I also succesfully allow VIM on a brand new A6

    Thanks for your tricks.

  117. Hi, where can I find the serial number of my Audi A1 8x my2012 radio concert for VIM activation?
    Thank you

  118. Hello,
    thank you very much for your work.
    But: For me the login codes doen´t work.
    Both were refused when trying to login on Touareg II from 2010.
    Any idea?
    It is RNS850 Navigation and there was only one serial Number

  119. Also… I forgot to mention that I used these instructions on a 2012 Audi A7 with 3g MMI. I figured out the button sequence on the first try. I substitued the “Menu” button for the “setup” button listed in the instructions.

  120. THANK YOU…. Your instructions and guide for 3g MMI VIM playback were spot on. The only thing left out, which I should have known anyhow, is that it is necessary to download the programming cable PC application in order to change the values. I downloaded the Ross-Tech application after borrowing a cable from someone off the Vag-Com Locator site listed above. I am stoked!!!

  121. Looking for someone to do this for me, im in phoenix AZ and am taking a trip to Canada and could use a distraction for my passenger. I am willing to pay. and I dont have a VAG com cable . (Please email chekle @ me . com)

  122. Hello

    I have just tried this on an A6 4F year 2009
    and it works. that was a very easy operation.
    for the next days i will try iton a Q5 year 2011

    thanks

    Jesper

  123. It workt great on my Audi A8 2003 NL.
    To restart the MMI 2G on my car I had to press the TEL button, the control button and the small button at the top right simultaneously.

  124. hi, this kind of tutorials are really good.
    I have an A1 2012 and can’t find the serial number
    anyone has managed to unlock the vim on a car like this?
    PLEASEEE!!!!

  125. VW Touareg V6 3,0 TDI 150KW Bj:2011 RNS 850, VIM und Standheizung aktiviert, funktioniert ohne Probleme

  126. Looking for someone to do this for me (as soon as possible, taking long road trip in 3 days). I’m in Los Angeles (near Santa Monica), will come to you, Will pay! =) I don’t have a vag-com cable. =( Email me jskate35 at gmail dot com. Thanks!!

  127. I tried this using the VAG-COM cord they have at the dealership. I have an 2012 Q5 3.2L Quattro and went to 5F and saw NAR 2011 and DU7 High and two other lines but at no point saw a serial number or any coding that looked like the example and was not able to find a serial number.. Any suggestions on what i can do??? or where I can look. For sure it was the MMI 3G because the 5F option was the only one that matched. Please help me out

  128. has anyone purchased this cable and completed the job themselves?

  129. Hello,

    I have a 2011 (november) Audi A1.
    On my attemps to generate acess code for VCDS I tried to find my serial number reading 5F controller but…serial number is not visible.
    Without serial number i can´t enable vim.
    Any ideas to access serial number ?
    Thanks
    Paulo

  130. Is there anyone in the Portland, Oregon area that can do this for me? Let me know…you can email me directly at self.nathan at gmail dot com.
    thanks

  131. Hello thanks for your tutorial :o)
    I have a Audi A1 from 11/2011 and i can’t find the serial number…There is only en long number but it’s does’t compatible with the generator!

    It’s possible to deactivated on the A1??
    Help me because i need this option on my car :oD

  132. Hey I have a 2012 Q7 when he states serial number provided below I don’t see it ……Could you explain it to me from beginning to end …..

  133. For all the guys who have it working on there q7, can I ask where you are inserting the disk?? I have a 2008 q7, but instead of the single disc slot under the screen i have a disc changer. Does that basically take away the DVD capabilities? The only DVD drive i know for sure i have in the car is the one in the trunk where the nav disc sits. If anyone could chime in I would greatly appreciate it. My enigmatool, and VCP both have this via obd, no need to even use vagcom so I can see its enabled but I cannot figure out where to put in the disc.
    Thanks
    Frankie

  134. Overall worked perfectly! Thank you!
    Notes:

    Successfully logged in after the second attempt with the alternative code.
    The first try with the normal code was not successful for me.

    The value of channel 63 is the speed value.
    For me the initial value was 3 [km/h], and I set it to 120 [km/h] and it worked.
    Beyond 120 km/h the MMI display was disabled. Reducing the speed, the screen was enabled again somewhere about 105 km/h.
    Thanks!

  135. der einzige Beitrag, der nicht drum herum redet, hat mir sehr gut geholfen. Man sollte weniger über rechtliches diskutieren und lieber Möglichkeiten aufzeigen.

  136. Hi Roger,
    to get it right, you still need the diagnostic cable to get access to the RNS 850. Or is there a way to do it directly through the touchscreen of the RNS 850?
    Thanks
    Joe

  137. Hi, I tried it with my RNS 850 and it works perfectly to reboot RNS 850 when finished press Nav + Traffic + Clima + Phone + Knob :-)

  138. It works on my Audi Q7 with MMI 2G. But since, the car battery go empty alone… How could I return with the original settings ?
    Does somebody know the original value in channel 63 instead of 255 ?
    Thanks in advance

  139. Hi guys i discovered that my a1 system isn’t mmi but Radio Music Concert – RMC with an AMI device. have anyone tryied this? Thanks a lot.

  140. MMI touch 4G?

    TV is now active up to 255 km/h.
    It works the same way as discussed for the MMI 3G system.

  141. Frankie im trying to find the serial number in. audi a1 in 5f it doesnt appear and i dont have the 7 module installed in the car is there another place where i can find the serial number in audi a1
    Thanks a lot

  142. Roger,
    The RNS850 works on the same exact code system as the MMI3G. So you will be able to use the same code generator and also adaptation channels to unlock your rns850

    Frankie

  143. Hi, it worked perfect with my 2009 Audi RS6. Now I bought a 2011 VW Touareg V8TDI with RNS 850 System. Does it work with this System also ?? Or has anybody a solution for this??
    Thanks Roger from Germany

  144. What is about the MMI touch? 4G!
    I didn´t find any support for this device in my Audi A8 09/2011.
    Thanks for your post

  145. In Audi A1 2011 – I can find de engineering menu pressing Car + Back for 6 seconds, but also dont show the serial number…I think its another kind of system (someone told me thats an RMC – not MMI 3g system) Thanks Maarten. Ive tried to find a way to disable the VIM for several days… But it seems that nobody has done it on Audi A1…
    Thanks for your post..

  146. I couldn’t seem to get the MMI serial number in order to generate a VIM login code. Too bad my VAG-COM seemed to “hang” on this specific module 5F, so no information at all was shown when I pushed the “Advanced ID-1A” -button. (I can do adaptations tough…) However, it seems there is a different way to get the MMI serial number: when you enter the MMI service menu with the CAR + SETUP buttons, and then enter the system menu, there is a serial number shown. if you take this serial number and replace the “$” with a “.”, the VIM code generator will generate a correct code. At least, it did for me… (08/2010 A6 MMI3G). Please check if this works for you as well!

  147. 2011 A4 Avant and 2012 S4, works perfect. Also did a friends 2010 A5. Thanks for the great work.

  148. Friends, can someone please helppp me.. I cant find the serial number on my audi A1 2011. In 5F advanced identification it doesnt appear.. And module 07 its not installed in the car. If someone has done it on audi a1 please tell me where i can find it? And what to do? Is there an alternative way to obtain the code for secure acess 16 in vcds ? Please help….
    Thanks a lot.

  149. yes it does have the joystick in the middle, so im assuming its 3g. Problem is there is no disc slot underneath the screen, just a 6 disc player. The dvd for the nav is in the trunk.

    Frankie

  150. I dont get it, so is Q7 the only one that dosent work. I setup my enigma read the headunit, set at 0kmh, I changed it to 255kmh and it set fine. But the DVD drive for the nav is in the trunk, in the front is a 6 disc changed. Is the Q7 not capable of playing dvd’s??? It is a 2008 Q7, I beleive it is a 3gmmi system.

    Frankie

  151. yojoeybr,
    You know what I didnt do a reset afterwards. I wonder if i needed to reboot the mmi unit. I’ll try that today on my friends q7. Let me ask you, if your navi HDD or DVD. Do you remove your navi DVD to put in video dvd?

    Frankie

  152. Yojoeybr,
    When I put the DVD disc in the place of the nav disc all i get is please insert nav disc? Do I have to select special source, or does your just start playing?

    Frankie

  153. Yojoeybr question I have a 2008 Audi q7 with MMI system, nav and everything else. Now under my screen is 6 disc player, in trunk is nav dvd. I don’t see any other slot? Maybe if you dont have the 6 disc player there is a single dvd slot there?

    Frankie

  154. Can I ask you guys something, are you doing this on US or EU cars? My question being is that I can unlock MMI 2G/3G/3D units via my enigma, vagtech cable or this method but after i change mmi from 0kmh to 255kmh nothing plays. Where are you guys inserting the DVD for it to play and what menu option are you using. Just curious if this is something that maybe just EU have dvd players in there dash and us members do not, I cant see that though as i know people who have it working on mmi systems. So can you confirm this works on US based systems, where do you put the dvd in to play and also what source you select to view.

    Thanks
    Frankie

  155. i’ve try into my A6 C6 2004 but all 2 security code generated from the respective 2 SN doesn’t work !
    Do you have any suggestion for me ?
    Regards !

  156. SCOTT/SERGEY,
    Are you saying that you have used this code generator and instructions to enable video in motion on your VW TOUREAG with which I believe is running a RNS850 unit? Can you please clarify this and list steps on exactly how you accompished this.

    Thanks
    Frankie

  157. This post is for all the noobs like me. Just did this on my 2012 Q5- worked perfectly. I bought this to do so:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0051S22HU

    The cable connects to a port on left of the steering column right above the foot rest. I used my laptop running xp with the software provided with the cable above. Following the instructions above exactly step by step worked perfect first time.

  158. I would really want to thank you for this. it worked with my Audi A8 2004 on the 2nd code.
    Great & useful Trick :-)
    Imad

  159. I’ve read instructions but it is not clear which number should be used as a “Serial Number”. It seems to me that I am not the only one confused.

  160. Hi All,

    Tried to unlock a 2004 Audi A8 with an MMI 2G high unit in and got invalid code after trying both serials listed below and both codes given by the generator. Any one got any idea why?

    Your personal login-code is 02246 (alternative code is 02624) for serial 300JG037526224

    and

    Your personal login-code is 05044 (alternative code is 00404) for serial 322IG037504054

    Thanks,
    Russell.

  164. First code worked perfectly on 2012 A7

    Note: When restarting MMI use “MENU” key in place of “SETUP”

  165. Ok, it worked on my 12 A4/B8 Avante. Used the Serial Number from Step 2 “Advanced ID – 1A”, didn’t catch the connection of that step. Codes 01233 and 02383 worked for security. Thanks.

  166. Codes didn’t work on 12 A4 Avante. Have full NAV with MMI 3G. Definitely got connected and was able to change gauge sweeps (cool). Are we supposed to use our VIN to generate the Security Code? Mine is WAUWFBFL8CA013239 and generated codes 03193 and 01329. Neither worked. Any ideas what I am doing wrong

  167. Just got my 2012 Q5 and I have been trying to understand this first step:
    “Select control module 5F in VAG-COM/VCDS”

    I have no idea what that even means or where module F5 is.
    Any help?

  168. vaxpilot – I see you have a Q5 as well. i just bout a 2011 Q5. Can you shed some like on this whole process, disabling brake with DVD playback. I’m brand new at all this. can you break the process down big bird style for me? mprusin1@gmail.com

    Thanks,
    mike

  169. hello
    i have a audi a5 sportback 2010 model with mmi3g and the code was wrong…
    what could be the reason?
    thanks for helping me out

    • @niuzhihong: K5FAN* not supported.

      @Roders: If no CAN-controller is present at the 5F address it probably is not the MMI 2G/3G (“high” version) and the codes most likely won’t work even if you find the CAN-bus address of the MMI head unit in your Audi TT on a different address.

  170. Hi KC.
    Yes made sure Engine is on….it seems my 2011 Audi TTS does not have the 5F Module. Is this possible?
    THanks
    Rod

  171. Just a question as I can’t make it work. Do we need to start the engine when accessing that module ?
    THX

  172. Fabulous service! Worked first time on our 2011 Touareg Execline. Now my grandson can watch movies in the back seat. If only there was a way to use headphones now…

    Thanks from CANADA!

  173. Roders – make sure your engine is on. For some reason, some of the module won’t connect when your engine is off.

  174. I have a 2011 Audi TTS with Navigation and TV, but cant seem to access module 5F. Got the genuine RossTech Cable and latest VCDS. But keep getting “No response from controller”? Doing a scan it is like I dont have the 5F controller??
    Any ideas?

  175. Hi Jeremy,

    Did your code work at the first time ? Did you have to use the second one ?

  176. Well my friends and local board members all get it done for free, the same way I vag or do there odometers for free as well. This is a random board and many people dont have cables or sw. I dont use vcds, I use something much more expensive that is meant for odometers and just happens to do mercedes/bmw/land rover/VW/ and Audi 2g/3g mmi systems VIM as a side feature. So for 14k what I paid for the unit the occasional 100 bux to a board member isnt anything. The speed shops around here cant even do it with sw which dosent void your warranty, dealers dont know about and use an additional can based device which they charge 500+ for VIM. Now I think my time is worth the 100 bux to a stranger, a friend, no they dont pay. If someone can help me put in my led drl’s I’ll be glad to do you VIM or odometer if it happens to be reading the wrong mileage.

    Frankie

  177. That’s gonna be too far as I live in Europ but in anyway I would pay 100 bucks to do that. You should better help the others for free you’ll need their help sometimes

  178. If anyone is in the tri-state area I do this without Vag-Com, I use a diff program which unlocks VIM and enables the test menu for 100.00. If your interested just email me : encryptusagmailcom

  180. Hello Dave
    Yes I got the same ones but none of the work (invalid code)
    by the way, it’s a 2009 A6 with MMI 3G
    Cheers

  181. Yves,
    Did you at least get the code generator to to produce numbers for you? With your serial number I got:
    01307 (alternative code 03740)

  182. Worked fine after I put the serial number in correctly. Make sure you put the space in there – not sure if it’s case-sensitive too.

    My car is a 2011 A4 Avant.

    Thank you very very much!

  183. Thanks for the info but I can t get it work.

  186. Dear Ulich
    I have the same model. You wrote that you did it successfully. Could you please help me. At the end it says chanel 63 not avaiable (error).I am in Leeds area UK.You may contact me via email.
    wahab50@yahoo.co.uk

  187. Any one in the Chicago area has the VAG COM cable that can help me with this? Willing to pay. call at 224 715 0269

  188. Hi
    I have Audi A6(2008)2D.I tried with VCDS release 805. At adoptation 10 it says channel 63 does not exist (error). Help please. I purchased cable and software from ebay. Is it the right version of software ?

  189. So i do need some kind of cable and stuff, which will not be free? So i can’t just do this at home in the car?
    :o

  190. I just used this to unlock the security access on my 3/11 build A4 Avant and it worked fine. I’ve yet to test it, but I was able to access the controller.

  191. I just used the MMI3 code generator / instructions to unlock and enable VIM on my North American 2012 A7

    the primary difference on the instructions is that setup button is now called memory, and I had to reboot mmi a couple of times to get VCDS to read the values without crashing.

  192. Non, il a accepté le code, c’est parce qu’il faut l’introduire dans un court délai sinon le programma ne l’accepte pas !

    At this time it’s unkown if and when a login code for these units can be generated.
    May I ask how to solve Can 3GMMI way to run Video In Motion
    Thank you

  195. Primary number calculated worked for 2011 Q5 2.0T MMI 3G. Produced an all numeric code for me, thanx

  196. Same problem as Lin. Serial: K5FAN153A239W, code generated: 09AW2 or 0A23W. The security access, however, seems only accept digits.

  198. Does this work on US cars? 2011 A4?

    I cant find the first setting: Select control module 5F in VAG-COM/VCDS

  199. Worked fine with
    2011 S5
    2010 A6
    2010 A8

    Now all we need is a code generator for VW, developer. Id be willing to start up donations for a VW generator.. Let us know

    Frankie

  200. @donna, the dealership won’t give you the serial. The procedure to obtain the serial is listed above. It can be pulled with vcds

    Frankie

  201. If you have a rns-510 unit which is the only one that plays dvds you cannot do this with vcds and a vagcom cable unfortunately. You can use a hardware bypayss but a lot of times it interferes with the navigation system, alternatively there are a few people, myself included who can perform a software solution by programming the radio itself with no canbus external units or anything that would or could void your warranty. Myself I charge 100.00 for the service and you could get it done on the spot if your in the tri-state area, if not you could ship the unit and pay the 100 + shipping charges. Turnaround time is about 1 day if you use overnight shipping, only takes me 2 minutes to program the unit

    Frankie

  202. That is the serial of the unit ,I have done this procedure at least 10 times it is from the advanced id reading was made with vcds but this time after I put the login security code the 5f give me login rong login code!!!!!!

  203. Hi,frankie
    In this site,it’s described to get your serial number.

    for 3G
    1.Select control module 5F in VAG-COM/VCDS
    2.Select “Advanced ID – 1A”
    3.Submit the value from the “Serial number” field in the form below. If there’s more than one serial number, use the first one!

    for 2G
    1.Select control module 07 in VAG-COM/VCDS
    2.Select “Advanced ID – 1A”
    3.Submit the value from the “Serial number” field in the form below. If there is more than one serial number field, use the first one!

  204. Hi,viper
    Serial 483A60B7698189 should not be a serial number of your head unit.
    Find your head unit’s serial.

  205. hello, they change the codings it is not working on 2011 a5 mmi 3g, any ideea?483A60B7696189 IS THE SERIAL
    THANK YOU

  206. I just had this done on my 2011 Q5 2.0 TFSI and it works great! Printed off the directions and took it into a local Audi tuner (Denver, CO). The only roadblock was that they had to figure out that the ‘serial number’ that you enter into the code generator is not part of the VIN, but relates to the MMI unit itself (which appears to be only accesible by the vag-com/vcds, not in the normal driver-operated MMI menus). After that, no problems. Took about 40 min, $75. Thanks for the great tip!

  207. Hi,
    Found a guy with a vag-com/vcds that changed all my settimgs i wanted and also followed the VIM guide. It worked perfectly as described.

    On my Audi A4 model B8 2010 with MMI 3G

    Sven (Belgium-EU)

  208. Hello,
    I try this manual for my Audi A6 4F 2006 and I have problem with adaptation. It show me channel is not available, but before I write login and it say me: Security login is god…but then nothing changes and the channels are still unavailable. I have VCDS 8.05. Where is the problem?

    Thanks

  209. You need a hex can cable to connect between a computer and your can and vcds soft ware. Then you enter to code in the software on your computer and upload it to your car effectively.
    Visit Ross tech . Com or search for a local person with vcds software or the previous version known as vag com. You/they will need the hex can cable, either serial port or USB. The lesser cables won’t work with your new car.
    Good luck

  210. some questions, just got a 2011 q7, do i need a cable still or can i just do the code thing? i live in australia

    help would be good

  211. VIM worked first time. Not sure about the MMI 2G reboot as my right hand drive car has buttons in different positions and I couldn’t get the system to obviously shut down BUT, it still worked perfectly anyway! The wife can set DVD’s up for the kids much more easily, many thanks!

  212. Adam,
    As far as I know you can’t use the Vag-Com for the RNS510 units as of yet. I use special software call MRM RNS510 Service tools to enable VIM on the rns510 units. If your in the states I charge 100 for the programming. If your in the tri-state area you can come by and get it done.

    Frankie

  213. Is there any way to get a video input added to an S5? I want to be able to hook up my video MP3 player as an aux input and run video on it. I have a yellow composite, as well as a red and white stereo audio.

    Also Toni… where are you located? I am in Long Island.

  214. I have a rosstech vagcom and an rns 510 on my vw mkv golf gti and wanted to know if you have a fix for it so i can get video in motion please.

  215. I’ve tested it on my new Touareg NF (codename 7P) – and it works!!!

    Thank you ever so much for your work!

  216. Like other have asked, where do I find the serial number to enter into genereter to produce the login code.

    tks
    dave

  217. Toni,
    How are you accomplishing the RNS510 dvd in motion? Are you using the vag-com? Currently I am using MRM service tools to enable VIM on any rns510, change pins, etc. Just curious if you found a way to do it with the vag-com?

    Frankie

  218. Well ordered the VAG-COM cable from ROSS-TECH and used my Windows 7 notebook and followed the instructions line by line & within 20 min had the VIDEO IN MOTION unlocked!! My car is an 2011 AUDI S5 W/MMI 3G and all is working fine and have never been happier to watch my live concert DVD on my morning drive to work and I’m willing to meet up with anyone in the HARTFORD area to perform the HACK to get them up and running. my contact info is TONI FISHMAN 860-306-8080 I charge $125.00 for my time to do said modification to any AUDI or VW in the CONNECTICUT AREA…

  219. I JUST GOT A 2011 AUDI S5 AND NEED HELP TO GET MY VIDEO IN MOTION WORKING. I LIVE IN FARMINGTON CONNECTICUT AND NEED TO FIND SOMEONE TO HELP ME HACK MY HEAD UNIT…
    860 306 8080 WILL PAY KINDLY

  220. I have installed it in my 3 week old 2011 model Audi A4 (MMI3G) and it works!
    The menu numbers as described were different here, but if you look at the description of the menu, you will be able to find it!
    Thanks for the link!!! AWESOME!!!

  221. Uhh, but where do I find the requested ‘Serial Number’, or is that in the display when the VAG/COM thing is connected?

  222. I am trying to enable VIM in my 2007 A6 3.0 TDI (MMI 2G).
    I do have a VAG K+CAN cable but it is not from Ross Technic so I can’t use their software.
    I am using VAG COMMANDER 5.1 software, but I don’t know where to find the “Advanced ID – 1A” menu.
    Instructions provided seem very simple for VCDS software, but I just can’t get it for VAG Commander.

    Please Help, thanks!

  223. Bought VAG-COM USB 805 RUS. Gained two five-digit logins via generator. non of them fits. says “such operations require lisence”. But test was OK.
    Audi Q5. Maybe I need an SKC? an how do i get it? I have a new immobilizer with changing code. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

    Thanks in advance

  224. Worked well with an 2006 A6 MMI 2G
    error for first login code
    alternative login code was accepted
    tanks a lot
    Regards from Paris/France

  225. I need some help buddy

    How do you get the serial number mentioned above in order to get the login-code ?!

    Thanks

  226. I’ve done this to 15-20 audi models over the past 12-18 months, and it’s worked perfectly each time. Great instructions on this page, and the coding is top notch. I’ve done Q7’s, A6’s, A4’s, A5’s, all various options & engine configurations. Thanks for the help!

  227. Worked perfectly on 2010 Audio Q7 with Nav etc using a HEX-USB+Can cable (Ross-Tech) and version 10.6.1.

    First code was accepted with no issues.

  228. Hi Guys,

    Really interested in doing this mod on my new (5 day old!) A4 Avant.
    Could somebody tell me exactly what cable you got to do the mod and where from?
    I can see lots of options on e-bay etc, but not sure of exactly what I am looking for.

    Thanks

  229. Is there any chance the algorithm for generating the code could work for an VW Rns-510 ?
    As i can see the other adaptation channels are similar.. So its all about the login code

  230. I’ve been trying to generete security code for K5FAN1——.
    And I want to know many serial number after K5FAN1.
    Please leave a message with your serial number.
    Thank you.

  231. It works perfect with a brand new Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TFSI Multitronic Pro Line from July 2010.

    Thanks N.

  232. La manip fonctionne!! Mon code était 115. Ms maintenant il faut que je résolve mon pbl de tuner tv analogique!
    It works good but i have too résolve my tv problem! I have a analogiq tv. Tuner…

  233. Dear Sir:

    I had a Car A6 in China. The Serial No is K5FAN1 49A1Z24. I try to use the VIMGEN, The code is 02a41(alternative code is 0A1Z4). But the system can’t input alphabet. Can I do that??

    Thank you!

    Ellis

  234. Worked like a charm. Did it with the cars of a few colleagues too.

    Audi A4 B8 (2010)

  235. my 2010 q7 serial number is K5FAN1 52A17WK ,but the generator doesn’t work ,would you please show me my login code,thanks a lot!!

  236. Does anyone know the procedure to enable the DVD playback on the 2005 S4 (I believe they have the RNS-E systems)?

  237. I am not very computer/electronics savvy. I have a 2010 Q7. Just to get this strait, do i need to get this cable in order to enable the VIM or can I do it directly from my car. can anyone post step by step directions for dummies on how to make this work…thanks

  238. Ryan, I have the same audi as yours. If you’re in NJ or NY, could you possibly remove VIM restriction on my S5?

    I have no clue of how it is actually done.. It looks very complicated, and I don’t have VCDS/VAG-COM (I don’t even know what it is to be frank..)

    Please let me know if you could do this for me.. Thank you very much!! smsmlee@gmail.com

  239. Everthing about MMI 3G on this site works great. I hope for the future that are coming more great information from 3G. I like it Thanks for so far. Dennis Q5 2010 S-line 2.0TFSI S-tronic

  240. Your input is greatly appreciated. It worked for me. Mine is a 11-09 produced 2010 model B8 S4

    thanks a bunch!

  241. Unfortunately, no. There’s absolutely zero information about these models. It looks like the non-K5FAN models are still being built into the latest Audis. Maybe this will change with the next model year (starting these days) and we will get some more information about the K5FAN models.

    Cheers,
    Jan

  242. any idea what to do with the serial number is not numeric but a combination of K5FAN?

  243. Forgot to mention,
    Audi Q7 4.2 FSI
    Japanese Spec.
    MMI 2G,
    VIM disabled. Perfect instructions and easy to follow, worked like a charm.
    Many Many Many thanks.

  244. I finally picked up my Q7 4.2TDI and enabled needle sweep, the lap timer and the hidden developer menu, disabled the seat belt warning chime and enabled VIM.

    The process works flawlessly. Just needed to remember to select the correct module. Module 5F, not module 5.

    Awesome.

    Thanks Jan, you are a legend.

    Now, I just need this level of control over my Passat R36

  245. Great! It works perfect with my Audi Q5 2010

  246. I finally got my brand new Q5 (end of April 2010) and VIM enabling worked perfectly well.
    Great job Jan.
    Many Thanks.

  247. I’d better put this in the right spot this time…

    Hey Jan, nice work with the unlock code. I’m sure there are a great number of user on the web that owe you a debt of gratitude.

    I’m taking delivery of a new Q7 4.2 TDI with the latest 3G MMI and I am assuming that the 3G unlock code will probably not work for me.

    Let me know if there is some way in which I can assist you to create an unlock code generator for these latest 3G MMI systems.

    I know cars and electronics pretty well and don’t want any credit for the work. Perhaps if you provide some insight into the method originally used, I can do something similar.

    I have a VAG COM cable, so I can access all of the electronics required.

    Anyway, let me know if you are interested.

    Thanks
    Steve

  248. I Know about some problems about VIM with new MMI 3G with K5FAN… serial number. There are new solutions to solve this problems?

  249. Excuse my ignorance. How do I get the serial of my A5 to insert and then get the code? Where is the port to connect the cable vag?

  250. I need to disable module protection on the SDS module (2005 A8). Is there a website that can help with this?

    Thanks

    log in cod doesn’t work.

    please help me..

  254. Hi.
    I tried today for MMI3G S4 2010,control module 5F serial is K5FAN158A0NHX.
    But,generate log in code is 0HAXO. Is this changed the algorithm?

    please help me!!

  255. Hi, I’ve never know the Login code that is
    K5FAN158A05NW and including some alphabet in latter half of serial.

    Can anyone clear this matter.

  256. to kervin
    Do you mean A=1 R=2?
    K5FAN1-69A15R7 login code :02171 or 01157

    If so what does it change N and W ?

    Please help

  257. 00070 is a mistake. I tried 00071 and 00157.

    to kelvin
    What is your logic to generate those codes?

  258. to motom
    If you did that ” K5FAN1-69A15R7. I tried replacing alphabets with 0; 6901507″

    I think the code is 00071 or 00157,
    Plese retry,and if it will work ,tell me.
