    2018 Q7 3.0 supercharged

    Can?t flash the ECU. It connects and says the vin, but won?t read the ECU. Any suggestions?

    Did it read the definition ok? You may have to send an infolog to support if the calibration hasn't been defined as yet.

    Please get an Infolog to us at support@hptuners.com

    If it didn't auto-detect, that means it didn't recognize your OSID so there almost certainly wont be a definition for it so we'll need to get one added.
    Thanks!
    If its not broke, just give it time.

    How do I send an info log? When I hooked up the scanner it picked up a few of the perimeters but it just won?t read the ecm. It will show the vin then makes you choose from a list of ecu?s. No matter which one it is is said failed to flash.

    Give that a hit and send that off to support so we can get it looked at.

    Would everyone that wishes VAG would use the same engine-management system for more than a week at a time please raise their hand?
