    The fault codes worked themselves out after another drive. I erroneously activated the system function test, but it never completes even after the documented test drive procedure.

    Basic Settings could not be initiated even after entering the 40168 security code. The error message I kept getting last night was something along the lines of "group not accessible". I'll try the...

    I don't understand what you mean. The car doesn't stay running with the wrong key in the ignition.
    I had manually transferred the VIN, PIN ,CS, MAC and Power class using AVDI. I didn't touch the...

    That's what I did with AVDI. The instructions didn't include touching the serial number field of the cluster itself.

    I didn't use the "VCDS" method of pairing the immobiliser as it wasn't accepting the PIN for the immobiliser. I had used a third party tool called AVDI to do the process.
    I hadn't disabled the...

    I recall two individuals in this forum saying that the ABS module was compatible. I'm looking for that thread now.

    Is there a possibility that a firmware update can result in incompatibilities with other modules. I'm not talking about selecting the wrong firmware file for a module or interrupting the flashing...

    The only DTCs that remain currently is the one for the traction control and TPMS. The fault codes for the steering adaptation went away with clearing all codes again then doing another test drive. ...
  10. Retrofit MK6 Golf-R instrument cluster to MK5 Golf GTI

    Greetings,

    I had just retrofitted a 2012 MK6 Golf-R instrument cluster in my 2008 MK5 GTI thinking that the donor cluster was from a MK6 Golf. I did the necessary immobilizer work and paired a...

    There is no need. Jetta,97 resolved my retrofit concerns through e-mail correspondence.
    The cluster is installed, and the immobilizer work was done to add a virgin key.

    I must take the...

    This is an issue for me as my stock ECU only seems to get/release the seed with the original MK5 key (after waiting the 10 minutes), but not a blank key, or the key married to the cluster. I'm aware...

    I apologize,

    I forgot to state that this is a retrofit of a MK6 cluster in a MK5 car. I'll post photos and part numbers shortly.

    Thanks for the quick response. I'll fire up the blank transponder now.
    ...and hopefully reply with good news.

  16. Quick query

    Which "correct" key was he supposed to use? Is it the one for the ECU, or the transponder that would have come with the donor cluster from the salvage yard?

    I'm asking this question in the case...

    This sounds like progress, but VAG would have an issue with such use of their IP. Also, I can imagine the dealerships complaining already about lost revenue and warranty claims when DIYers make...

    If VAG says NO,-across the board then we are back to the drawing board. I think that's what Bruce was hinting at

    I'm of the opinion, you have answered the question correctly.

    As it relates to your example of OBDeleven moving into the EEPROM market, it is a delicate topic as some of the "features" or...

    That wouldn't be financially feasible for Ross-Tech to do in my opinion. You are talking about throwing away $49+$350 when a genuine current generation Ross-Tech cable only costs $199 for DIYers. ...

    I'm happy in my case, inflating the tyres to the same pressure, and doing the basic setting, before a long test-drive resolved my issue.
