T3 TMPS - battery life and target pressures

So now that my summers are back on, I once again have TMPS active.......

#1
Being that I suspect my TPS batteries are original, I'm expecting them to be nearing their end-of-life. I'd like to confirm this. I do believe there are measuring blocks which will tell us this information.
Does anyone have this figure out already? If so, can you hook me up with the info and save me the investigation?

#2
The OEM target pressures are not for me. I like to run my tires at higher pressures. As a result, I need to figure out where these settings reside to change them to something more suitable for my use. Does anyone know the security access code for adaptation in this module and\or how the target settings can be changed?

Re #2

I messed around with VCDS last night, and was unable to get anywhere.
I tried some random security code I found listed on the net but it didn't take it.
My "coding" option is not available, and I can't perform any adaptations without the security access.... there has to be a way to set these values

VW has "hard coded" the values. You can change the PR coding with VagCanPro.
