These are:

• Software update of modules with FRF/SGO files

• Read/Write EDC16 Flash and update Flash counters

• TV Activation
- allowing video to be played while the car is in motion for MMI 2G and 3G multimedia systems
• Dump tool
for a vast array of instrument clusters and ECUs
• Service interval reset

• DPF OFF for EDC16 and EDC17 ECUs

• Remote control adaptation

• Coding calculator
(coding helper)
• Steering Lock adaptation (for Touareg/Cayenne/A8 2003-2010)
• Guided functions 
  - enable/disable cruise control
  - change language
  - enable/disable Start/Stop system (for A6/A7/A8)
  - change Startup animation (for A6/A7/A8)
  - enable Lap timer (for A6/A7/A8, etc)

VAG Offline Guided Functions


Key programming is one of the most important automotive aftermarket tasks, and the Abrites team know it. We pioneered non-OEM dealer-level software solutions in that area, with unmatched products, which we constantly develop and improve.

The ABRITES automotive solutions for spare key programming of VAG vehicles support Immo V MQB vehicles (GOLF 7, A3 8V, Octavia A8, etc.) with VDO clusters up to 2016. Key programming for Immo V  vehicles (Audi A4, A5, A6, A7, A8) with BCM2 is also made possible, including both all keys lost and spare key programming for vehicles up to 2018. We cover Audi A6/Q7 with EZS-Kessy, including both all keys lost and additional key programming. ALL Immo I/ II/ III/ III+/ IV vehicles are supported for both all keys lost and additional key programming.

With the latest Abrites solution you can read the component security (CS) bytes even from locked BCM2 modules 2013-2018, for both A4/A5/Q5 and A6/A7/A8/VW Touareg platforms. This allows spare key and All Keys Lost key

Our software products allow programming additional keys/transponders, PCB and remote-controls for Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, Skoda, Bentley, Lamborghini and even some Porsche vehicles.

Parts exchange and adaptation, or module replacement, is a very common procedure for every automotive professional. The Abrites solutions for parts exchange for VAG vehicles offer great possibilities for parts adaptation and modules synchronization.

Our solutions work both for immobilizer data related modules, and modules related to component protection synchronisation. Supported brands are Volkswagen/Audi/Seat/Skoda/Bentley/Lamborghini and even some Porsche vehicles.

Immobiliser data related modules

Using the Abrites tools you will be able to read/update IMMO data (PIN, CS, MAC), which lets you adapt used modules to a vehicle. The following units are covered:
• Engine Control Units (ECUs) (EDC15/EDC16/EDC17/MED17/ME7/MED9.x/Simos PPD/Simos PCR2.1/Magneti Marelli 4HV and 7HV and others)
• Transmission Control Units (TCUs) including DSG (DQ200 and DQ250), CVT and ZF8HP
• Immobiliser
• Steering Lock
• Dashboard

Component protection related modules

Other modules that do not require IMMO data adaptation, but require component protection synchronisation are the following:

Component Protection Generation 1
• Audi A8 2003 – 2010, Audi A6 2004 – 2008: MMI, CD-Changer, ILM, and other modules

Component Protection Generation 2
• both Temic and LEAR gateways are supported
• Audi A6/A7/A8/Q7 2004 - 2010 and Audi A4/A5/Q5 2007 - 2015: EZS-Kessy, Comfort module, Climantronic, Airbag, Instrument cluster, infotainment, and all other modules.
• Audi A6/A7/A8/ and VW Touareg 2010-2017: Dashboard and infotainment modules

Using the latest Abrites license (VN017) regarding component protection, you can now replace all component protection-related modules, if both the donor and host gateways are present.

Replacement of the dashboard and infotainment module are done by OBDII, without the need of the donor gateway, and also the original module is NOT required. The replacement of Central Electric Module (CEM) is done by dump, again, without the need of the donor gateway, nor the original CEM.
Supported models are Audi A6/A7/A8 and Volkswagen Touareg (2010-2017), with gateway LEAR.

Other functionalities:

• Read/update flash and eeprom data from dump files of Micronas MCUs;
• Read/update Conf. data and clear crash data of Siemens and Bosch airbag modules

Parts Adaptation



The ABRITES software for VAG (VN007 and VN015) supports cluster calibration of VAG vehicles from 2000 up to 2019, depending on their model, completely by OBDII. Audi А4/А5/Q5 models up to 2014 are supported for cluster calibration.
Vehicles with CAN, K-Line, UDS, as well as MQB clusters and new A8 (4H)/ A7 (4G)/ A6 (4G) / Touareg (7P) type vehicles are also supported.

This is an unmatched software tool, aimed at facilitating every VAG professional’s work when it comes to mileage calibration.
