Hi guys/gals.

I started a new project last week VAG Engine & Transmission Codes to show all engine & transmission codes used by all VAG applications.

Now this isn't a simple process. I downloaded 4 pdf files for engine codes and 1 VW transmission codes but they aren't up to date I think 2010 is the last date shown. I can copy and paste this into my database no problem.

I checked ETKA as they list all engine & transmission codes by the 4 manufactures. You can't copy and paste info from there so I thought I would just printout VW engine codes and that showed up 63 pages so I cancelled it. If you talking about 60 pages to each section then that's a lot of paper for all 8 sections. So the ETKA data will have to be written in which is going to take along time. At the moment I have 1500 engine & transmission codes.

ETKA Engines

Audi 26 pages
Seat 12 pages
Skoda 11 pages
VW 63 pages

ETKA Transmissions

Audi 58 pages
Seat 19 pages
Skoda 20 pages
VW 97 pages

If any of you that think this app would be useful make a comment. It will be useful is anyone wants another engine or gearbox as different models and manufacturers use the same ones.

Watch this thread for further updates.

Update 24/12/2014:

I've finally finished this app after a few months of slow works, it now has:

Engines 6,147

AUDI 1,418
SEAT 667
SKODA 538
VW 3,524

Transmissions 12,447

AUDI 3,674
SEAT 1,242
SKODA 1,126
VW 6,405

If you have downloaded and use my Free EOBD II Error Codes software you don't need to install anything as it uses the same COMCTL32.OCX, just read the ReadMe First.txt. If you have problems running this app on a Windows 64bit system then let me know and I'll make an installation package.

There is also a VAG Engine & Transmission Codes.chm help file which shows bugs and extra info I've found in ETKA. You need to run this app once before this help file will show.

Update: 11/09/2014

Ok I'm slowly going through the PDF files checking for typo's and that's a slow process but you can copy and paste info. So here is a new version that you can save all 8 PDF files or each one individually to the app folder.

If you think this app is useful please click the Like button?

Update: 14/05/2015

Engines 6,308
AUDI 1,467
SEAT 696
SKODA 553
VW 3,592

Transmissions 13,033
AUDI 3,903
SEAT 1,338
SKODA 1,221
VW 6,571




The original ETKA 7.4 PDF's were all in UPPERCASE. The new ETKA 7.5 is in proper case.

New version:



The new version allows you to right click on any line of data and copy that to the Windows clipboard so you can paste it in a file or forum, that saves you printing hundreds of sheets of info.

Mega is being a pain in the backside it now says I need to update my web browser. It shows the link to all browsers, if I click IE it says update to IE 11 which I've always used. I have Firefox as a backup and it work on there no problem.

Could be useful although I don't know how I would use it. Some people do ask for engine codes or transmission codes and I don't have any quick reference.

Chitty you have ETKA so you can search for anything, a lot of users on here don't have it.

Update:

I've added 3,197 Engine codes and 609 Transmission codes so you can see how the app works just as a taster because its taking a very long time to add every engine & transmission code from ETKA. You can search for any item in any column.

This app uses the same COMCTL32.OCX as I use in Free EOBD II Error Codes software so if that apps works ok for you then this one will.

The download link is in post #1.

Please leave any comments if its worth adding the other thousands of codes. I will add all the others because its another useful app, it saves opening all 8 sections of ETKA which you can only search for codes.

If no one likes it or makes any comments I will delete this thread.

Update:

I've completed 4,164 VW Engine Codes with a few Audi, Seat Skoda from the PDF files and 6,050 VW Transmission Codes. Its easy enough to use this app you just select Engines or Transmissions from the Combobox at the top and they show. You can search for any items in any column. I've added an help files just to show some info and the bugs I've found. I haven't completed the Print section yet as there really isn't much need.

I'm now starting on Audi Engines (26 pages) and Transmissions (58 pages) so it will be a month or more before that's completed.

Yes I saved the edit and it showed the first time else I wouldn't have left it.

The second time I uploaded the txt file again and it showed 100%. I clicked Preview and it didn't show, I clicked Save and it still didn't show, I had to upload it twice then it showed. It showed 2 uploaded but only one shows in post #1, now it only shows 1 which no one has downloaded yet.

For those of you that don't like using my app I have all 8 PDF files for you.

Ok I was just double checking the data I had entered into the database and I noticed I had the odd typo on dates which I am correcting on the new version. I updated my ETKA a couple of days ago and I noticed that new dates had been added. I found out from a friend on another forum that you can save all this data from ETKA to PDF files via the Adobe PDF printer which I've now done which you can copy and paste. In the new app you will be able to save each PDF file to your drive.

Obviously my app deciphers the codes use in Remarks and I've added other features.

My new app above allows you to save all 8 pdf files to the app folder, this is this months updates not the old one listed here.

14/05/2015 New Update:

I've uploaded the new PDF files.

Sorry, no, I meant the software file in the first post. I tried with the latest IE and Chrome and get the same thing in both.

Just tried to download again from another computer using Chrome and IE 11, using the link in the text in the first post, and it failed, same error as before. The link in the text file looks funny. Should it have a "%26" in the middle of it?
