    Translation to VCDS?

    Hi All,

    Car: 2008 VW Passat 3.6L wagon 4motion w/ 140K miles.

    I purchased a trailer hitch from Germany and had it shipped to the US.

    I installed the hardware and then came back and installed the electronics.

    The trailer hitch works great (day use only where car lights are visible over the load) however I have not been successful in getting the ECU programmed to operate the lights.

    This is the directions in the manual and even though they say "GB" I still can't seem to figure out what the steps are.

    I can't add the scanned image of the document here at work so I will try to do it tonight from home along with the auto-scan.


    Any help on the correct procedure would be appreciated.


    Thank you in advance,

    Troy

    I did see that but not being a VCDS ninja I have no idea how you "update" a module.

    Attached is the scanned page of the procedure from the product manufacturer.





    Here is the URL if the pic doesn't make it:

    Please post an Auto-Scan from your car so people can see how it is equipped and how the various modules are currently coded.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    The instructions state things like: "Update such-and-such a module's coding".

    The coding function is is described here in the VCDS manual.

    Two things come to mind...

    1. Are there LEDs for the trailer lights?
    2. Try coding trailer module to 010D000100000000.

    I can't add the pictures here so I emailed them directly.

    It appears the trailer module IS working correctly with my voltmeter. However there is an interface issue between the 13 pin Jeager plug and the 5 to 4 wire converter. I ordered a new 13 pin plug( I destroyed the old one opening it) and will buy a new 5 to 4 converter to see if I had a defective converter. The converter looks to be the logical issue now.

    To post pictures here you must copy them to a hosting site (such as imgur) and then copy & paste the direct link (preferably between IMG tags).
