What is Adaptations and Coding?
Car Coding is a relatively new thing in the Automotive World, and it implies software modifications to a Vehicle to allow the use of functions not available in the Car when it left the factory for different reasons, mainly local regulations (Some countries have different requirements from when the car leaving the factory). Coding does not imply changing the software! It only changes pre-programmed options already existing in the software. In modern Vehicles, there are functions that the manufacturer has not activated. Changing these settings is called Coding.
What can Car Coding bring to my Vehicle?
As we explained above, most cars have country-specific settings for their features, most vehicles have limitations and other restrictions. With the help of coding, the owner can change the chimes on their car for when they lock and unlock, set how many times its one-touch signal flickers for the indicator, remember settings for Start/Stop systems, and more. Coders can also activate cornering headlights with fog lights, deactivate some buzzing sounds, and enable multiple functions of the comfort module.
Other possibilities involve lowering the level of the passenger-side mirror when reversing, activate the “needle sweep” function when the ignition is on (only for some Volkswagen AG models), automatic door locking at a particular speed, U.S.-style daytime running lights, the auto-hold function for vehicles with electrically operated parking brake, and others.
