I'm getting a persistent "No or Incorrect Basic Setting / Adaptation" in 17 Instruments code when I run the Autoscan on my 2013 A3 TDI. Here is the full scan.

This code doesn't go away when I reset the service light, and I've checked Adaptation Channels 42, 43, 44, 45 and 49. They seem to be in order. The car drives perfectly fine, but why is this fault code persistent? It comes back immediately when I clear it. The last time I cleared it was 3 days ago, and it hasn't happened again according to the timestamp and frequency. Will this code simply go away on its own? I've also tried pulling on the trip counter stalk and clearing the service interval that way. No dice. Battery voltage is fine, both while running and while stopped.

For a little background: my car has a DSG tune, but the ECU is currently on its stock tune. I had a Malone Stage 2 installed but I was having regen problems (lamp then limp mode) on that tune, so I flashed it back to stock last week. The car is performing regens fine now, and I plan to install a revised tune that the Malone guys sent over sometime soon.

First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

on my 2013 A3 TDI

When found in Audi A3/S3 (8P): Instrument Cluster:
Check/Perform Instrument Cluster Service Interval Settings (Adaptation Channels 42, 43, 44, 45 and 49).
When found in any other Audi Instrument Custer run and save an Adaptation Function Control Module Map. After doing so try resetting ALL (see note) applicable service resets using the [SRI Reset] function in VCDS. If the issue is not resolved run/save another Adaptation Function Control Module Map so the stored values can be compared. Registered VCDS users encountering difficulty can join and post the inquiry in our forum -or- contact us directly via email with the log files.
When found in Brake Electronics (MK60EC1):
Replacing the ABS Control Module (J104)/Brake Electronics Control Module (J104) but keeping the (old) Hydraulics Unit will result in the Intake and Disconnecting Valves not being synchronized. A Basic Setting for the Intake/Disconnecting Valves will solve this problem.
When found in the Audi A4 (8H) Automatic Roof perform the Adaptation and see the Special Notes.
Note: most Rest of World (RoW) market Audi models support 3 total service related reset procedures. The Basic Oil Change, Time based and Distance based resets may need to be completed before 00003 - Control Module: No or Incorrect Basic Setting/Adaptation will clear.

Technically this is my second post (ha), but point taken. And thanks for the help. I updated my car info in my profile too.

Thanks for the info. I tried everything outlined on the vcds site except for running an Adaptation Function Control Module Map. My car is an 8V, so I think that might be necessary? Hard to say. Anyone else had an issue like this?
