Hi, I'm Ron, a different expert.

You have one of two problems here, either the new module is defective, or it needs to be programmed.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

UK Auto Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 9 months ago

Yes, it needs to be programmed.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars now
and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate me

I know that it needs to be programmed that's why I am writing to you to help me how to go about the programming. Then I will rate you once done.
UK Auto Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 9 months ago

You need to download the program from the Audi website to your scanner, then install it by following the prompts. They don't all install the same.

My goal is to assist you in the repair of your vehicle by
supplying you with well educated information. I may not
always have the exact fix you wanted to hear, but my job is
to get you on the right track, which I always do. I can’t hear,
see, smell or touch your vehicle from where I’m at, so your
understanding of that is greatly appreciated. There are no
magical answers, but I do my best to guide you in the right
direction.
