    Driver Profile Select (MK7)

    I took my time, sourced all the info, and parts and did the installation of the Drivers Profile Select Switch (Mode button beside the shifter)

    Everything seems to be perfect, But...

    My BCM is 5Q0 937 087 AN. And when I try to do coding it says that it doesn't support coding.

    I was able to do the rest of the VCDS coding without a problem. But it is in the BCM that I code it to "Drive Select Button Installed" on Byte 15 Bit 5.

    So, pressing the button does nothing.

    Tomorrow the car goes in to have the ODIS coding done, I hope that solves THAT issue.

    If your BCM has only zeroes for coding, changes are not done in coding but in adaptations...

    "Drivers Profile" is SWaP (software as a product) and can only be activated via ODIS, but your SVN process might fail if the related systems have errors. Might be an idea to revert your changes.

    ^^ ^^ hmm..............for mk7 FL BCMs with a zero code-string, there is an adaptation channel called IDE06507-MAS13132-Button in center console-Function of button 3 and the setting on the unit in my database is Driving program - might be relevant (perhaps)

    That worked somewhat. Now the button turns orange for a moment. But my eve button does not turn orange. I have read that it may not due to it having a long press to disable stability too.

    Now to see how ODIS likes it all. My dealers never done something like this. So its a learning experience for us all

    What is so difficult?
    Check the cruise retrofit guide, Drive Select activation is same procedure.

    The problem was, that when I used VCDS to activate the "Display Profile on MFD" the BCM said "this device does not support coding". So, I was not able to follow the guide for the VCDS portion of the retrofit. The car is at the dealer right now, it will be doing the FEC / SWaP activation or installation. They have never done something like this, or so they say. The paperwork I got with the retrofit kit, did not come with an FEC activation code, so that worries me.

    Also, today they are installing a MK7 GTI Cluster with a full color MFD for me. They have no problem with removing component protection and making the cluster work... They are unsure if they can match the ODO on the cluster to the actual ODO of the car. I know there are places that CAN do it, I may have to seek help from them.

    They can only change mileage if it's lower than 100km.
