Good morning

I'm new to this forum (Hello) and starting to familiarise myself with the VCDS diagnostic system. I'm a home mechanic with a 2009 SEAT Ibiza 1.9TDI SC. I recently had an issue with the steering assist which resulted in the need to replace the electric / hydraulic pump. This cured to problem but I was expecting to "code" the new pump to the car. However as can be seen from the details below the VCDS system is not "seeing" the steering assist ECU fully so has very little information. When viewed within the VCDS system the CODE window is greyed out and so unavailable to me.

Your expert assistance welcomed
Thank you

Once you've updated, take another Auto Scan.

If you still have the problem, please post the full scan log (not just the gateway installation list as above) in here.
Instructions on doing that are here: :thumbs:

Good morning Mike and NEtech. I’ve up dated the software and made a rescan and I can now see the code for the steering assist as I wanted. Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction. I now need to connect the old steering pump to read the code on that so I can ensure the replacement pump is coded the same. I suspect the degree of assistance applied by the replacement pump is less than it was previously. Again thank you
