Could be, but i think thats more a speaker that plays a certain engine sound.

Im a bit late with pictures, suddenly found myself on the road again the last few days.

I did modify the arteon bracket, its sorta fitted to the small narrow bracket that sits vertically between windscreen and engine space, If i get it to work, ill bolt it to that bracket with some aluminum spacers so it will still be able to pass on virbrations, but for now its bolted through some of the holes that are already in the bracket below the windscreen.

Allright here goes, don't mind the white plastic fasteners, i didnt have my wiring tape with me at the time, theyre gone now.

If i get it to function, ill drill some holes in the strut that its now fixed to and bolt it down properly, but i didn't want to make any irreversible changes until it works. The Arteon bracket was modified, i ground off the extruding part.

Thank you for the pictures. I think it looks really good and that position was exactly the same spot where I thought I would fix it IF it works. I'm still waiting for the 4 pin module connector and a new module because the breaker sent me a Golf part instead of Arteon. I now then have two to play with.

Just so you know, i tried the new module (which came with sw 0003), but same error.

According to someone that creates another tool theyre working on a dataset, so im waiting for that.

Hey that sounds great. Keep us posted, I would be very interested about that dataset as well.

Still waiting for updates @MasterTommy.

My plan is to wire the system on the weekend just to try if it works. Most likely the same issue as what you are encountering but at least I'll have some fun :D

I had this same issue when fitting an A9 module from an SQ7 4M into a Q7 4M. It connects but get "incorrect engine type" so obviously doesnt work

Never got it fixed.

Ok finally got around to test this on my car. Same thing as what MasterTommy is experiencing. Incorrect vehicle type.

I tried Arteon module and a Golf one. Both give the same error.

what was the end of this story, if any? I have a friend who want to try the retrofit on Audi A3, and I suspect the same outcome.

I think Audi should be fine. E-tron for example has sound generator if I'm not mistaken.

On Tiguan the engine type is not the issue, seems that there is non-existent dataset for vehicle type of Tiguan. The borne gives 2 different errors. Either incorrect engine type or incorrect vehicle type.

And I would be very interested to hear the outcome, was the control module hackable?
