that's the code for the 09-Central Electric module on the new leon. When you try to adapt some options like cornering fog lights, staging etc etc. The car won't let you until you go to the Security Access section within the Central Electrics module and type that 31347 code.

Thanks Mate, very useful information. Looks like I have a lot to learn with VCDS.

With my cable ordered, I think I need to go some reading whilst I wait, anyone recommended some good threads or sites for a complete novice? I'm fairly confident with computers and tech in general but I've never coded a car before...

Just ordered mine from the chinees site, so excited as i am getting my Leon next week :)

But can anyone changed the setting successfully to post some video on the steps exactly?

Enjoy!
This is the one I ordered, they arrive in decent time considering. Mine was 12.12 and I used it yesterday to switch on alarm chirp, ability to turn off DRL's, activate chequered wallpaper in DIS etc etc.
The important thing is to use it on a computer without an internet connection.
My advice, use it in a virtual machine (like the free Virtual Box from Oracle) that way it's not installed on your host OS but a siloed one where you can disable internet connectivity. The reason for this is VCDS will call home and flash your cable rendering it unusable. I accidentally did this with my previous cable, but at £12 bought a new one upon changing to the Mk3.

Merry Christmas!
Thanks, ordered (if there's any left), calling home to the mother ship noted ;)

@ac2013 Thanks for the .pdf link

@Nokiauk Cheers for the pull together ;)

Cable arrived today, got it installed ok, but getting the follow errors when it is talking to the car, CAN Not Ready, I changed the CAN timeout from default 0 to 55 and then back again, made no difference. Anybody had the same issue or know a fix??
