First Adaptation of Charge Pressure Actuator issues

What about the basic settings dealing with the lower/upper stops - basically cycles the WG?

Can you take a photo of the # threads on the WG rod? I am thinking your WG rod is waaaay to short.

Hey guys, did a search for this function and … not to threadjack but this one seems idle now?

just installed DTR6054 from IS38 and found my wastegate to be 3.2…. Looking to adjust to 3.5-3.9 as advised. Did this first adaptation function to see what it would do and all I get is the “working” circle constantly rotating and “basic setting ended” immediately. No sound from the turbo. Doesn’t change at all, just keeps showing the circle rotating like it’s working, let it go for a minute to be sure.

is there a chance my wastegate is actually stuck? Any idea what’s going on? I’m having serious trouble getting a good enough rotational force on the rod to turn it after breaking the nut, can’t get any tools in there to adjust with all the coolant/oil lines in…

Sorry to bring this old thread back, but did you ever figure this out? I'm having exactly the same issue you're having. The exact same screen you're seeing "Basic settings ended" and right below it says "Not available" when I try to run the first adaptation of charge pressure actuator in OBDEleven after tightening the acknowledgment to 3.55v. I got the aftermarket Mahle IS20 actuator installed

This is for the IS20 wastegate. You need to cycle key on, check voltage, spin arm to increase/decrease, run adaptation, cycle key off, exit vcds, then start all over with cycle key on, check voltage, spin arm etc....
Should be able to spin the arm by hand after breaking the lock nut loose. I did it from below.
In other words, there is no set voltage for IS20 wastegate actuators? Should I stay within the range of 3.6 ~ 3.5v? For example, cycle key on, spin arm, charge pressure actuator acknowledgment to 3.6v, run adaptation, if it fails, then key off, exit obdeleven, cycle key on, check voltage, spin arm until it's 3.4v, run adaptation?

I'm starting to think OBDEleven is the problem, where did you get your vcds software? Can you share a link?

You ever find a solution for this, same problem also have a Mahle style actuator from CTS turbo.

I had to figure it out myself. It might not be the same for you, but it will give you a starting point for you to experiment on your own:

Wastegate actuator adjustment and adaptation:

- Put the key to the engine on position and not running, then run OBD11
- "Engine"
- "live data"
- "Charge air pressure control valve uncond voltage sensor" should be between 3.55 to 3.8v
- then go to "Basic settings"
- "First adaptation of charge pressure actuator"
- WAIT until it says "Basic Settings Ended"
- tighten 10mm nut. <If for any reason you get an error "Abort for Safety Reasons" it means you have to cleanse (Log off OBD11 - car key to off position - on position - log on to OBD11) and repeat the above steps>

Thanks, I was waiting for some kind of confirmation. Got frustrated and eventually just checked the live data for lower and upper stop voltage and it was aligned with the voltage I had set it to...guess obdeleven is a little vague with that basic setting and it was working the whole time haha
