Since not all of the coding that you can find for VAG cars [Octavia, Superb, Golf, etc] work for Skoda Kodiaq, I decided to collect the tried and tested adaptations in one place.

All adaptations can be done with OBDeleven Pro device and proper phone Application, i.e. Car Diagnostics Pro VAG OBD2.







Remarks:
1. It is highly recommend to make backup before changing anything in control unit. Backup will read all adaptation channels and coding and store it into backup file. Backup file can be accessed in history screen.
2. After use, disconnect [in the App] and/or remove [from the car] the device due to the risk of draining the battery.
3. You perform any of these changes at your own risk. If you aren't sure, don't do it!

You can find more info about the device and application here.

There seems to be some misconception about OBDeleven: that you need to purchase or earn credits in order to use the device. However, all the adaptations listed above can be done via "Adaptation" or "Long coding" options that do not require to purchase/spend any credits.

Credits are only used for so called "Apps", i.e. "one-click" adaptations for those who do not want to play with coding features of the device.
For now there are few Apps (with new ones added every month or so) available for Kodiaq, e.g.:
- Mirror dip
- High beam memory
- Lock/Unlock acoustic confirmation
- DRL settings in head unit
- Video in motion
- Brake pads replacement
- Inspection service reset
- Oil service reset
- High Beam Assist
- DRLs off with handbrake
- Window function from remote
- MirrorLink in motion
- Auto folding mirrors

Frankly, I have not tried any of the "one-click" Apps above, as I prefer to have full control over what I do.

So, all you really need is to purchase the device for 65 EUR. This includes "Pro version" activation and free life-time software updates.
This is much cheaper than £200 or £575 for VCDS "dealer level connectivity" that in my opinion most of us do not really need.

Just to show you how easy it is to do adaptation via OBDeleven, please see pictorial instruction for disabling Start/Stop:

1. Open the Application on your phone and press "Connect"



2. Go to "Menu" [blue circle with three lines at the lower right corner of the screen]



3. Select control unit "19 -Gateway"



4. Select "Adaptation"



5. Find and select "Start/stop start voltage limit"



5. Change value from 7.6 V to 12.1 V



6. After changing the value press and hold green circle to accept the adaptation



Done!

Have fun and play responsibly :)

so if I'm right, this means you can activate the left mirror dipping when you select reverse? Even if u have manual seats?

Correct. I have manual seats and mirror dipping on reverse works. Important: the mirror selector must be in passenger side position, i.e. L/R. This is even better since the mirror doesn't dip every time we select reverse. When you need it just put reverse gear and turn the mirror knob into L or R position, depending on which side of road you drive :)

So have you actually done all of these adaptations?

I only ask as some of the things you have copied are std on UK Kodiaks.

Other members should also note the OP has a LHD car.

Thanks :)

It was really annoying doing a road test in my VW Passat with someone in the passenger seat looking at the laptop, because I kept knocking the cable out of the socket with my foot!

Perhaps even though I have a proper VAG-COM setup I should invest in one of these wifi/Bluetooth solutions.

Find what codes?

For coding changes you need a 3rd party device & software which will then talk to the various controllers in the car allowing you to make changes.

IIRC things like OBDeleven etc require you to either purchase credits or watch numerous sponsored videos to unlock the ability to make changes.

VCDS etc require you to make a one off payment for the cable, the software is then free for life as are all the updates, it is not a cheap solution however and will cost you a minimum of £200 for a s/h cable upto around £575 for the latest all singing / dancing wireless device, what you end up with however is dealer level connectivity and coding ability.

There is a reason why OBD11 is cheap and products such as VCDS & VCP are not.

Guess which ones put time and effort into R&D and which ones steal others intellectual property?

Someone got their VCDS dongle licence withdrawn for breach of the license agreement and reverse engineering the software.

I for one will not provide any advice or support to OBD11 users, and that is why my original 'tried and tested' VCDS thread on Briskoda has not been updated in a year or so.
