Product Description

Applied to repair the AUDI sixth Gen A6 Q7 Audi C6 steering column lock J518 ELV module failure replacement emulator.
AUDI C6 Q7 A6 Steering Column Module J518 ELV Emulator with VVDI Prog Programming Cable

Applied to repair the AUDI sixth Gen A6 Q7 Audi C6 steering column lock J518 ELV module failure replacement emulator.
1. Universal solution, three types MCU all can replaced by this emulator.
(replace MCU Mask: 1L59W, 3L40K, 0L01Y directly);

2. Stable and durable, No Vulnerable components such as relays, microswitch and motors on it.
3. Easy for replacing, write in the dump form original J518 Module with the VVDI PROG dedicated line directly, No need solder wire.

The emulator without lock or on lock function, if need the same function as the original J518 Module, please buy the J518 Replacement
The VVDI PROG dedicated programming cable connector here is only for programming the emulator board, not for original J518 PCB board.
so if you have a car which need replace the J518 module with this emulator, you need read out the data in the MCU by soldering wire or other methods, then write the data into the emulator MCU via this Dedicated cable connector.

Change steps:

1.Read out the EEPROM data from the original J518 module of your car (the emulator was already with flash data)
2. Write the EEPROM data you got in Step 1 into the emulator (if the original J518 MCU mask is 0L01Y, write the EEPROM data you got from step1 into the emulator directly;
or if the MCU mask of the original J518 is 1L59W/3L40K, you need to send EEPROM data to an expert to transfer EEPROM data when you write into the emulator directly. We don't provide the service)

Package includes:
1pc x AUDI C6 Q7 A6 J518 ELV Module Emulator with VVDI cable

Here is the AUDI C6 Q7 A6 Steering Module Repair J518 ELV Emulator 256,128 simulate board operation instruction.


Do backup original eeprom data in case of lost data before operation. Read and save data.


If your car ELV has 9S12DG 128 CPU, the operation steps are as follows.


9S12DG 128 CPU operation steps:

1.Read and backup original EEPROM data.

2. Paste EEPROM data to EEPROM 2K-4K folder.


Double-click EEPROM Converter-x86 application.

write-audi-j518-elv-emulator-with-vvdi-prog 1

You will see the original 2K file converted to 4K.

You will see the file is 4K

write-audi-j518-elv-emulator-with-vvdi-prog 2
write-audi-j518-elv-emulator-with-vvdi-prog 3

Only double-click this program once. Do not repeat.

If 2k file does not contvert to 4K, right click and run EEPROM Converter-x86 as asministor


3. Connect flashing wire and write the converted 4k eeprom file.

For simulator chip 256, select J518(2010)(0L01Y) in vvdi prog software
write-audi-j518-elv-emulator-with-vvdi-prog 4

Each ELV emulator board contains both eeprom data and FLSAH data, so usually you just need to write Eeprom data. If not, you can write original eeprom data and the FLASH data in the emulator.


If car ELV has 9S12DG 256 CPU, the operation steps are as follows.

Read out and save the original eeprom data, and write it directly to the simulator.

follow same wiring diagram as without horn above

With the VVDI Prog Dedicated Programming Cable, you can connect ELV emulator without soldering, directly insert into the 20pin port.



Better put J518 ELV emulator to car after write data.

In the test platform test, better check the wiring of 20Pin port. Some test platforms will conflict with the 20pin port which leads to the chip being corrupted.


Error wiring: 10 (red) should be in position 20 (blue), as shown in the figure.
