Use this form to generate the VIM (Video In Motion) login-code to gain write-access to any MMI 3G head unit to enable TV/DVD-playback at all vehicle speeds. Click here for more information. Looking for a MMI 2G login-code? See here.
Instructions:
  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!
  4. Select "Security Access - 16"
  5. Enter the personal login-code provided below
  6. 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.
  7. Select "Adaptation - 10"
  8. Select channel 48
  9. Press read
  10. Set the value to 255
  11. Press test
  12. Press save
  13. Press "Done, Go Back", close the controller and quit the software
  14. Restart the MMI: Press and hold down the function keys 1 (SETUP), the control button 2 and the control key at the top right 3 simultaneously until the MMI system shuts down. Release keys -> MMI system reboots.
  15. Restarting 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 (thanks for reporting this!)
Enter serial number: Example: 483C.09757218
 
If this login-code generator worked for you, please leave a comment and include the car model and model year, thanks! If you're using a VAS 505x use channel 001 to get the serial number (first field) and remove the leading zero from the generated login-code (4 digits instead of 5).

Many thanks go out to Flibbi for providing the correct adaptation channel for the MMI 3G!
