Hello,

I'd like to purchase the latest VCDS but have a question before I do. I retrofitted the complete OEM air suspension system to my 2015 Touareg 7P (Canadian spec). It is fully functional, and I was able to code the cluster, gateway, and engine ECUs, but am unable to code the ABS module (MK25A). VCDS says that coding for this module is generally done with SVM and offers no bit explanations in long coding. I have compiled a large list of ABS coding for various 7Ps from around the world that have factory air suspension and I believe I'm certain which bits need to change (found the difference with models that do have and do not have air suspension). When I go to change these bits, the coding fails. I currently have an ABS DTC for "module incorrectly coded", which disables my traction control and ACC.

I'm used a friends VCDS 16.8. Does the latest version support MK25A coding, or have some long coding info for the MK25A ABS module, or perhaps a security access code? I'm pretty confident that bit 1 and 4 need to be changed.

Scan of the ABS module:

Code:
Address 03: ABS Brakes (J104)       Labels: 7P0-907-379.clb

Let's start with the fact that "your friend" is using a clone/pirate copy of VCDS.

Does the current version of VCDS show you the bits and bytes for that ABS module's coding? I don't think so. VW has not documented them anywhere that I know of.

Can it change those codings? Yes, it should be able to.

Is a Security Access necessary? There's a good chance of that. Is it known? I'm not sure. We probably have some you could try, but we're certainly not giving them to someone using a clone/pirate copy. ;)

I just verified that the issue persists with the latest version of VCDS. Guess that answers my question.

Oh well.

What cable did you use with the latest VCDS - HEX-CAN, HEX-V2, HEX-NET or something else?

A picture of the cable showing the serial number would be useful ;)
