Hi,

I'm new to the forum and wondering whether somebody could provide some assistance to replace the EPB control module in a UK 2009 Tiguan 5N.

The parking break MIL started coming on about 12 months ago but the EPB remained pretty much fully functional (the switch operates and EPB working normally). VW wanted to charge over £500 ($700) so didn't want to pay big bucks as it was still working ok. The fault light is just annoying.

Originally had both 02845 as below (see full autoscan) and 03200 - Switch for Electric Parking Brake (E538) / 008 - Implausible Signal - Intermittent. I replaced the EPB switch a few months ago and that cleared the 03200 DTC but the 02845 has remained and dashboard EPB MIL fault still illuminates every time the vehicle is started.

I've recently managed to get a replacement EPB control module to replace the original 5N0.907.801.B from a local car breaker. Its a newer version 3AA.907.801.H and the donor vehicle was a Passat. I plan to replace but I'm unsure of the exact process to replace and re-code the EPBCM and ABS (there is talk of having to recode that). I'm hoping that replacing the control module and recoding will finally clear the dashboard MIL error and 02845 DTC.

Can anybody please point me to a step-by-step guide or detail the process as I've searched the forum and Wiki (e.g. VW Tiguan (5N) Parking Brake etc) and still not clear on the exact process to swap the control module from a 5N0 to replacement 3AA version.

I have all the erWin repair manuals so have no issues with trims, centre console and locating the CM, etc. Its just the technical VCDS process required after swapping out the control module to recode, etc. I'd really appreciate some clarification. Many thanks.

Here is the Autoscan:

Are you sure that 3AA-907-801-H is an appropriate/compatible replacement for 5N0-907-801-B?

According to my local VW main dealer - thats the exact part number they would supply as a replacement. That version replaced previous discontinued control modules.

I've also seen a few of these for sale on ebay that the donor vehicle was a Tiguan. Mine actually came out of a Passat from a local car breaker and I assumed its a generic part across the range.

I guess, I'm willing to swap and suck it and see.

It seems to be compatible according to the parts database: https://parts.vw.com/p/Volkswagen_2009_Tiguan-MT-FWD-S/CONTROL-MODULE/53056516/3AA907801H.html

Then I would go ahead and install it. You have a good log of the exiting ABS coding already (which you'll probably have to restore) and VCDS will give you a coding chart for the EPB module. I'm going to guess the replacement EPB should be coded 0023156. I expect you'll also need to do a number of Basic Settings for both the ABS and the EPB, but they look to be well-documented in the Wiki.

Perfect, that was the missing piece of the jigsaw beyond installing and coding, I will need to do basic settings for ABS and EPB which as you say are well documented.

Regarding coding the EPB - I would have probably used the same coding which is 0000057 (looks like that could be wrong) but will check the coding chart and use your suggestion as a guide.

Thanks Ewe, will report back on progress.

How did you go with recoding the EPB module, SteveS. I think I need to do this in my Audi A4 and I'm finding second hand parts for super cheap prices in the US (I'm in Australia)

An Audi A4 is nothing like a Tiguan. Please start a separate thread.
