Talking Got my eCodes programmed tonight - whoooeeee!

Thank you CocoPops for your detailed scan. In carefully reviewing the content of your controller 09 Central Electronics or J519 BCM (Body Control Module), I discovered a significant LED tail light byte (#18) difference to my NAR code. I merely recoded that byte to your value (84) from mine (6A) and voilá, my rear LED eCodes now work properly - with separate brake and signal lamps so my amber signals work right now - whooooeee!

I was thinking I'd be in for some serious channel adaptation changes like I had to make on my S5 for this to work, and while that could do it too, changing this one byte in the long coding was a much easier proposition. Oh boy am I a happy boy tonight...

I can't wait to tell some AoA folks about this next week at Daytona -


- Roger

CocoPops & Roger-

This is some pretty wild stuff!

I'm more of a mechanical guy (yea, I shoot film and listen to vinyl too) but electronic enhancement for traditionally mechanical functions always has my attention.

I mentioned on my introduction thread that I wanted to get back into my own maintenance. I know the Q3 in new and most likely most folks are not beyond the free 5000 mile thing but anyone game to discuss this stuff?

Again, cool on the coding modifications guys!

Best,

John

Okay, perhaps I should've tried a video, but not really sure where to upload it to. Anyway, here's a few pics : sorry for the overall bad lighting -

New turn signal



...with running lights :



with brake lights :



brake lights only :

I don't - but what we get is RED turn signals (this is a physical part of the lamp assembly and cannot be changed) - AND they are COMBINED with the brake elements. So when we stop or signal, BOTH turn(red) and brake elements light together. Change your byte 18 in 09 to 6A and see - except of course you'll still have the amber turn, but at least you can observe the behavior ...

Another (besides the amber signal) GOOD thing I like about the eCodes is that when braking AND signaling, you still get DISCRETE signals and brakes, whereas the NAR cars behave like old Detroit iron, the side that's signalling goes dark on brakes just so it can signal a turn - imho, NOT a good safety point when/with limited visibility or partially blocked views...

...also not easy to see in the pics, the amber signals are about 20% brighter than the red signals.

As you might guess, I am ALWAYS willing to discuss this stuff -

I've seen this turn signal as a sequential kit somewhere?

Check this out at :39 seconds.
