Durametric coding Possible with Porsche PIWIS cable

Durametric coding instruction:

The Coding option provides a way to back-up, restore, and change settings within supported control units. For example, you can save the settings of an old control unit you must replace and restore those settings to a new control unit. Durametric relies on internal part numbers and metrics to ensure you do not restore settings to unintended, incompatible control units.

Coding options on supported control units vary.

To backup control unit settings:
1.Select a model.
2.Select a control unit that supports coding.
3.Select Coding.
4.Review the warning statement.
5.If you acknowledge the warning statement, click I understand the risks (proceed with coding).
6.On the Backup / Restore tab, click the Backup button.
The Save As dialog appears. The program uses an XML file to save the backup settings. By default,
the program names the file the same as the selected control unit and saves the file to the My Documents (or Documents) folder.
7.Save the XML. Note the save location and filename for future reference.

If you have selected at least one control unit in another function group (A), you can access the list of coding modes (B) by selecting the Coding/Adaptation function group.

You can access the different working screens after selection of a coding mode:

If you have selected manual coding without MCR (C) and confirmed this with <F12> (H), you can now set and write coding values (I). You can return to the list of coding modes with <F11> (G).

If you have selected manual coding with MCR (D) and confirmed this with <F12> (K),you must enter the vehicle data in the screen that is then displayed (L). You can return from here to the list of coding modes with <F11> (J).

When you have entered the vehicle data, you can access a screen for assignment of the valid equipment features by pressing <F12> (N). If you press the <F11> button (M) in this screen, you return to the vehicle data input screen.

After you have assigned the equipment features, you then access a screen where you confirm that the vehicle data is correct by pressing <F12> (O). If you press the <F11> button (P) in the confirmation screen, you return to the screen in which you have to assign the valid equipment features.

If you confirm that the data is correct with <F12> (Q), the codings are then written (R).

If you have selected one of the automatic coding modes (Automatic coding with MCR or Reset to factory settings) and confirmed this with <F12> (T), you must confirm the vehicle data with <F12> (Q) (back to list of coding modes with <F11> (S)). The codings are then written (R).

In addition, you can also call up a different function group by selecting one of the function group buttons in the menu bar (U).
