HOW TO LOG ALL ENGINE MEASURING BLOCK DATA IN ONE GO.

This information is available on the ross-tech web site (user manual)
  

VCDS can collect data from all measuring blocks for a single controller.

 

This is called CONTROLLER CHANNEL MAP .

This function allows you to capture all measuring block data from a single controller as a .csv file. (Comma Separated Variable)

You can do the same thing by opening each measuring block group (three at a time) and logging them using the log button. 

 

The controller channel map method is much faster but the data needs processing once you have it.

How to use the controller map function.


Warm engine with at least a 10 minute drive.

 

Plug in VCDS and start engine, allow to idle.


The VCDS start screen looks like this.

 

Click the APPLICATIONS button.

Then you will see a screen like this



Click the CONTROLLER  CHANNEL MAP button.

 

Then you will see a screen like below

 
 

Set the CONTROLLER ADDRESS to 01  (This is ENGINE)


Ignore LOGIN / SECURITY ACCESS CODE.


Click
MEASURING BLOCKS button.

 

Click CSV FILE button

 
Click GO.

 

VCDS will very quickly interrogate each module from 01 to 255 and produce a large data file.

Once it has finished you can log off and turn the engine off.

 

The .csv file that you created will be in the VCDS folder on your computer in a folder called LOGS.

It will be something like blockmap-01-03G-906-021-DP.csv

 

Double clicking the file will open it in notepad.
This is fine for a quick look but not much use if you want to tidy up the data and have a better looking log.
 
What I do at this stage is:
Choose "save as"
Rename the file to something simple.
Change the file type to .xls
Save.
 
You might get a pop up asking you what type of .xls file you want to save as. (depends on what version of excel you have).
 
Now you can open the log in excel and tidy it up.

 

 
THIS IS A .csv LOG FROM A PASSAT B6 2005 1.9 PD BKC ENGINE AT IDLE WITH NO KNOWN FAULTS.
A log from a 2.0 pd tdi has more blocks with more data.
