    2003 Golf Auto Trans convert to Manual Trans question


    I am new to here so I will basically state my issue. I expect there may be additional information that will be needed.

    I have a 2003 Golf TDI that had an Auto Trans. I bought it with a blown motor and bought a motor/5spd Trans from a salvage yard and had an independent swap out the engine and convert the car to manual at that time. I have since been seeing a bunch of codes related to the Auto Trans and tour queen converter etc. I also see the PRNDL displayed on the dash and my cruise doesn't work. I checked and the eco was sided for an auto - 00001. I swapped that to 00002 and nothing changed. I am asking if I need an new ECM from a manual trans car or is there a way to tell my ecm that the trans is a manual and stop the auto trans codes etc...?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance....

    Some ecu's are code able but with a bug in them that if coding is changed in EDC 15, will further result in a checksum error damaging ecu.
