This is just abit of information from my experiences with this unit
My original unit was a 1K0614517BE which failed
the unit purchased to replace this was a used 1K0614517AT unit
which had the same feature set as the BE unit (based on vagfans.info & ETKA)

As recommended by Ross-Tech i kept a copy of my original's long coding
Orig: 163B600D212400FE681106E8841F0080B100
to my surprise the new unit not only had zeros for its coding but it needed 2 additional characters
Used: 00000000000000000000000000000000000000

After searching the internet and finding various suggestions and a long code helper tool, none of which worked in my case
By simple adding two zero to the original coding the abs unit accepted it
My recommendation when dealing with it unit is to backup the original long code as suggested by RossTech
And if the new unit requires additional characters try entering 00 at the end.

I hope this post will be helpful to someone in the future.

Original Code:
163B600D212400FE681106E8841F0080B100
New Code:
163B600D212400FE681106E8841F0080B10000

I take it there were no descriptive check boxes available for the additional byte (byte 18) in the long coding helper screen?

Byte 18 is for Park Assist Steering , so your car did not have it originally that why you need to leave it 00.
