View Full Version : Vag cable came in.

I search pages and pages and couldn't find much info on specifics... i guess "vag" is too common of a term around here.

I just need to know what blocks i should be logging. My car is still running a bit rich and I believe its because my thermostat is stuck open.

My goal is to log as much as i can and i will post them here to be evaluated by all you more experienced folk.

So where should I start?

which vag came in? which version from ross tech or elsewhere?

I have the regular 409.1...

I just wanna know which blocks to log... and even how to log.

Theres a list somewhere that tells you which blocks log what, I'll post it up when I get home if nobody else does before then.

Go to select control module then click engine, then logging blocks I believe... you can manually browse through the blocks to see what they do.

yes but how do i make it put everything into a spreadsheet?

You press Log on the bottom row of the screen, and then it should show a file extension that it's saving it to, should be in the VAG-COM/logs folder, then click start. When you're done, click stop, then done logging and check the logs folder under program files/Vag-Com and they should be there as excel documents.

How you figure your thermostat is stuck open? My temperature gauge barely ever reaches the middle full vertical position but that don't create a rich condition but does create some more emissions.

well its never been changed and i can tell its stuck open by the behavior of my coolant temp. It takes a while to warm up, runs hotter at idle and then quickly cools down when moving but never touching the middle line.

The thermo is only supposed to open when u reach the middle line. supposedly.
