Carista obd plug

Post by Martin451 » Tue Mar 06, 2018 9:22 pm

Just got a Carista obd plug
Been messing with the settings on my van
Made up with it,tuned off the cornering lights,changed the indicator’s to flash 5 times not 3 and changed the coming home and leaving home lights from the dip beam to the fog lights,also activated the rear doors to auto lock when I drive off
Thinking of going back outside to see what else I can mess with 🤪🤪🤪

Mine arrived at the weekend, I’m impressed too.

There’s a few things apparently supported but have not worked, so I’m going to contact them to check.

List of things I did in the first 10 minutes at the bottom of page 2 of my build thread (so as not to duplicate content here).

I see you have caddy 4... I bought a Carista obd for mine and says it’s not supported with my model? Is there different ones to get?

No, same one. The mk3/4 didn’t occur to me as it lists on the website as 2004-current and they also support newer VAG models so ordered it.

It all seems OK apart from what I mentioned and it reports 2 errors with instruments and BT which I think are down to the fact that the OEM head unit is missing.

I've got a support ticket open with Carista for some queries, first thing they've come back with is:

Thank you for using Carista. Yes, we do support your vehicle for customizations, advanced diagnostics, and service.

Update for Carista dropped this morning in App Store, some new customisations available, including needle sweep, which I’ve enabled of course.

Martin451 Do you have any screenshots or a list of what you can do with this? I did see some pictures on the T6 forum but the quality was that poor i couldn't see what you could do.

I even downloaded the app last night but you need the reader to look at what you can do?

I've got a carista dongle so tempted to pay up to check out what it can do/enable some things. One thing I enabled on the skoda was the high pitched beep when you locked/unlocked the car. Can this be done on the van does anybody know? It's one of the few things I miss the most!

Look on their site, select the vehicle, click customisations and there is a sample list of what can be done there

Mine was set to 13v too, have factory xenons so left well alone as I’m happy with them.

I’ve enabled beep on lock & unlock on mine. It only works if you have factory alarm system, which I have. However the double beep on unlock works fine, the single beep on lock doesn’t. Have a support ticket open with them.

This is what needs to be set:

Allow configuring beep when locking/unlocking - YES
Beep when locking with remote - YES
Beep when unlocking with remote - YES

Thanks I'll give that a look on Monday as it doesn't seem to want to work on the bloody iPad
