Just got a 2015 golf 7 DSG GTD and there is no DAB option in the menu,

Car has Discover PRO GEN I with Dynaudio

MIB unit is a DAB one, car has the correct PR code and its all wired to the DAB aerial etc so it "should" work, dealer is a bit stumped - has anyone seen this before or could shed any light on it, I'm wondering is something else isnt coded on the car that stops the DAB option appearing in the menu, I've checked the coding and it seems OK done all of the soft resets etc, disconnected battery but nothing, if anyone could shed any light or share the coding from a similarly equipped car I'd be grateful

Thanks in advance

Coding looks OK to me as well, but that doesn't mean others should double-check us.

There's a veritable boatload of measuring values related to the DAB tuners. You can narrow the selection down some by typing 'digital' or 'DAB' into the search/filter box, then look at them a few at a time. Perhaps some clues there?

Here's a more user-friendly version of the code-string on your hex5F module
Code:
Byte	Hex	Binary
0	02	00000010
1	73	01110011
2	00	00000000
3	01	00000001
4	00	00000000
5	00	00000000
6	00	00000000
7	00	00000000
8	11	00010001
9	11	00010001
[b][COLOR="#0000FF"]10	12	00010010[/COLOR][/b]
11	02	00000010
12	00	00000000
13	08	00001000
14	00	00000000
15	03	00000011
16	1F	00011111
17	02	00000010
18	02	00000010
19	E6	11100110
20	01	00000001
21	00	00000000
22	01	00000001
23	00	00000000
24	57	01010111
25		00000000
26		00000000
27		00000000
28		00000000
29		00000000
30		00000000
DAB all happens in software switches on Byte 10





As Uwe says - doesn't look not incorrect!!

So an update on the issue

Got escalated to VW technical after the software had been reflashed without success who then sent the dealer a “patch” so clearly VW know of an issue, dealer tries the patch which didn’t work and then calls me to say they’ve contacted technical again for a solution.

After reading the self study thing VW put out on the infotainment system I suggested to the dealer they update the cluster and CEM and try again as I’ve seen an issue with a cruise that wouldn’t code via SVM because of this issue. the cluster controls and acts as a gateway for some of the unit.

Get a call an hour later to say it’s fixed - they tried the patch again and the car took the update - funny that isn’t it...

So there clearly is a software issue with some of the units that VW know about

I’ll scan the car when I get it back to see what changes if any I can see and post it up

Thanks for the help so far - much appreciated

So I went to collect the car and bumped into the tech who was working on it and he explained that they didnt update the cluster they just had a laptop issue when they were trying to load the software but after 3 tries the car took the update and I now have DAB

Having just scanned the car I then get 2 codes in the 5F

The first is check software version management which I've seen before and I changed the adaptation channel for confirmation of installation change and put in a new value using windows calculator, the 5F accepted the code and its now gone

However I now have the following code still present:


1556 - Internal Control Module Memory Check Sum Error
B2000 87 [009] - Missing message
Confirmed - Tested Since Memory Clear
Freeze Frame:
Fault Status: 00000001
Fault Priority: 6
Fault Frequency: 1
Reset counter: 201
Mileage: 121061 km
Date: 2019.04.06
Time: 08:19:07

Voltage terminal 30: 12.1 V
Software module: status-SW_Status_Consistency: 00 20 00
Software module: status-SW_Status_DevName: Dab

Obviously related to the DAB issue, everything now working OK but I'd like to be rid of the code

Any ideas on how to get it gone ?

Thanks

GXCars: hi -it sounds like your friendly tech left a trailing error code when she loaded the new software (I'm guessing of course). It looks like a SVM trouble code - I think

If I'm correct, the normal way of dealing with this type of error is to calculate a new code for the Confirmation of installation change channel in the hex5F module using the existing code in that channel and a pre-defined key. It's a kind-of cypher process - albeit the encryption key for the cypher is fairly well known on the net (it's hex C9D2. I'm not sure why this particular key is used, but it's a really interesting number - a topic for discussion at another time, perhaps).

Basically the sum that needs to be calculated is: Existing code XOR C9D2 (where XOR = Exclusive OR function).

So - I'm not sure how familiar you might be with the fascinating world of numbers (I'm referring of course to the magical numbers that live in the base 16 number-set and the even more sublime numbers that cohabit in the hexadecimal world as binary numbers).

If the formula above is familiar to you - simply apply the existing code to the XOR function and the cypher key - and enter the result back into the Confirmation of installation change channel.

If all this reads as gobbledygook - post up the existing code in your 5F module and I'm sure that someone here will calculate your new code.

EDIT: or, go back to your friendly dealer and politely suggest that they do the job properly!!;)

Don

PS:Hmm......... why does the forum definition for SVM assert that only dealers can fix this DTC - doing the math ain't rocket science?:confused:

I am skeptical that the procedure you have in mind here is applicable to this fault code.

Hi Don,

Yes I'm familiar with the hex calculations and indeed had 2 codes one which was the SVM for change of installation, I ran the hex calculation and cleared the first one expecting that it would probably clear the second.

The dealer applied software version 0407 to the MIB which didnt fix the dab and then applied a patch from VW which I'm wondering if that is causing the checksum error, everything is working fine I just want rid of this code and you would have thought the dealer would have run a scan after they fixed the car.

I'm figuring that the checksum error is something within the actual software and VCDS wont be able to correct it unless someone knows otherwise ?

Thanks

Ian
