Default Q8 - OBDEleven

Hi, guys, copying this from the Q8 Prestige thread so as not to hijack any further. Here’s some of the changes I’ve made on my Q8. All the coding is available on search but I’ll try to post up codes when I have a chance. If anyone has the OBD tool already and wants info feel free to reply here or PM me...

- Scandinavian DRLs. The tail lights and rear light bar are on during the day (mirroring the front DRLs) and the headlight animation works in the rear during the day time everytime you unlock the car now.

- Disable amber bulbs in headlights. At night it’s just pure white now up front no amber side marker bulb. The reflector you can still see during the day though.

- Disable DRL winking when turn signals are on. Although on the Q8 with Matrix I’m not sure if the wink was ever there.

- Disable seat belt chime. The loudest chime on any production car ever is now officially MIA.

- Dim instrument cluster. Guages at night are just about perfect now.

- Fold mirrors by holding finger on lock sensor.

- Gear Selector shows gear in D/S, similar to the display when driving in Manual mode.

- Lift gate delay when pressing remote to avoid accidental opening.

- Double flash and double chirp on Lock and Unlock.

- Low Beam stays on when High Beams are on.

- Seat Ventilation - Increase fan speeds.

- Seat heating - Increase temps (I didn’t do this one).

Did a couple other locking changes also. The Parking camera increase speed before shutting off was disabled for Q8 for some reason. That’s one of the only changes from past Audi’s I couldn’t do.

Did you just use the same coding as we did on the 4M Q7 (&A4 & Q5).?

Thank you. Do I just buy an activation code from their website and download the app? I assume it walks you through the setup or do I need any specific adapter? Im new to this. Thank you for any help

Yes, I think everything is the same for the most part.

Order from Shopdap.com for $79.99 that’s everything you need. Their shipping is very fast. You also need an Android device so you can download the OBD app. Watch a couple youtube videos on setup, anyone can do it it’s easy.

I have iphone also, I just ordered an RCA Voyager tablet from Walmart for like $42 shipped or something. Saw other people on Audiworld did the same. A friends phone will work I guess if you have some time but itís nice to have access at any time in case you want to play around with it.

This Google Doc is a good place to start. I used a lot of these. Some donít work such as Light Scenario (this shuts off all interior lighting at night after unlock) I wouldnít bother with this. Fold Mirrors via Key Fob and Parking Assist Speed Threshold also didnít work for me. The DRL codes from this list all work however and are excellent. Thereís DAS codes also that should work, but I havenít tried them since Iím rarely on the freeway. Iíll post some other coding that this list doesnít cover as well...
