Hi guys,

Having some trouble with my sisters car, its a 2004 Audi A3 8P with a 1.6 BGU.

The instrument cluster was crashing out and losing comms with a few units and draining the battery over night with lights left on the dash. I sourced an identical part number instrument cluster and swapped the immo over with car prog... Instruments no longer displayed safe and the car started... all good I thought.

Now I had a few errors with brake adaptations and steering assist stop adaptations which cleared up. But one code I couldn't get around was the 1104 Incorrect Module coding error - 008 Implausible Signal.

I'm not sure I took an autoscan before starting any work but on the scans I do have which I feel were before and after the cluster swapping ABS coding is 19077 which according to the coding tables is correct.

I've been advised that it may have some kind of VIN encrypted coding which is necessary...

Coding as per Rosstech wiki:

1zf +0000005
ua0 +0000640
7k0 +016384
Engine +2048

vin:
wauzzz8p25a032532

I was wondering if anyone could further advise on if the ABS does actually need encrypted coding or perhaps there is something in the IPC causing problems?

Tomorrow I will try replacing the old crashing dashboard back in there to check what the ABS states coding fault wise.

Hi Uwe, thanks for the reply. Please find attached most recent autoscan taken today. Note that adaptations are all done now and those codes are gone on the steering assist and the brake modules.

So your ABS coding hasn't been changed, it's identically the same as it was with the old cluster, which has exactly the same part number as the new cluster, but the ABS now thinks it's incorrectly coded.

That makes no dang sense to me. Hopefully someone else knows something I don't.

I would suggest:
Enter some numbers Workshop Identifications in Options > Save > Exit > Start VCDS
Use the same coding (0019077) in [03-ABS] and [Do It!].
Then do the Basic settings.
I did try manually entering some non 00 values during the coding procedure but not as you mentioned, they were accepted but the fault remained. Its a little puzzling to say the least, I was scratching my head for a long time! I am wondering if car prog has not transferred something and the abs is looking for a certain string or such from the instrument cluster that is mismatching. I will try your method just to be sure.

So... in the depths of the internet, I have found someone that has the same problem as me... and also used carprog also to change immo cluster information. Immo ID is not being transferred and perhaps there is some kind of encryption in the can communication between abs and dash? I am not sure what tool to invest in next to try and repair or whether to just find someone with AVDI that can do it for me!

It was likely to be me that you had found. I'm still having the same problem and a few people have assured me that the problem lies with the ABS unit. I got a newer one really cheap so I'm going to try to fit it soon. What I did notice, when I fitted my full DIS cluster, I was able to go in to the service menu to see the VIN number which appeared as YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY and not the actual VIN. The VIN shows up as normal in VCDS and Carprog, I don't know why it's doing that in the cluster on board menu though. Could be one for the Ross Tech guys to look at? Is the VIN stored in the Fujitsu MCU in my case as well as the EEPROM?

That's because you are looking in the wrong controller sections and it's an encrypted block.

I mean viewing it with the red DIS screen inside the car, not VCDS. I can see it fine in VCDS. I was just browsing the menus in the car and stumbled across the VIN number, well what was supposed to be the VIN anyway!

It shows WAUZZZ8P45A146497 which matches the actual number of the car itself.

You will never sort ABS controller coding unless repairing the Cluster/Immobilizer to display the correct VIN # for the correct PC & to broadcast as a needed precondition.

Hey Jack,

That's the thing though, the ECU, IMMO and cluster all show the same VIN. It's a strange one

Yet....

so something VIN related isn't right.

If the cluster is showing this then maybe it's sending "scrambled" VIN data to the ABS?
