03276 – Please Check Software Version Management

This error appear after firmware update – it’s nothing major, but if you are here you will probably want to get rid of it.

There can be also another one:

You will need VCDS to do that and generate SVM code.

Let’s go to the VCDS:

Open VCDS and Choose “Select Control Module”:

VCDS Start

Select Module 5F:

VCDS Module Select

Click on “Adaptation – 10”

VCDS 5F Main

Enter 15 for the channel and press the “Read” button. 

VCDS 5F Select Channel 15

Enter the number above the heading “Count” into the Calculator below and press Calculate:

VCDS 5F Read Count

Now enter the value you just created into the New Value area and click Test/Save: 
Note that only Save may be available in which case you would ignore the test instruction. 

VCDS 5F Channel 15 New Value

Exit Adaptations and return to the main screen (Click “Done, Go Back”).

Click “Faults Codes – 02”:

VCDS 5F Main Fault

If you see any Faults click “Clear Codes – 05” then “Done, Go Back”


Now check Fault codes one more time and the SVM error should be gone. If not repeat the steps again.

In the event you go to Channel 15 and there is no Count value, clear your errors and then go back recheck. Sometimes the count will not be present until the error is cleared. Of course the error will return until you complete all the above steps again.

For me on my RMC it was channel 8 that had the count. Other than that everything worked out well. Thank you!

According to the instructions I failed, I have an error message 01043 – incorrect soft version

:Hi. Did the update tonight and everything is fine except the 03276 code. Tried several times, but new code will not enter count window. It seems normal when testing and coding, but fault code still there and when I go back to coding, it’s the old value 32226. Any tip?
