    Swap back the original panel. The airbag light is on that panel and that is one part of the airbag system.

    After swapping back the original panel, clear all DTCs and check if the airbag error is gone.

    Then regarding ACC. You do see this on your autoscan :

    Code:
    1807 - No Enable Indentifications Active 
              B2032 00 [009] -  -

    You do know that you cannot get the codes at least any official way?

    Ok, i will try!
    Let you know!
    And yes, i know it is SWAP function, but someone here in forum can activate it... I am waiting for him now.

    I would not count on it.

    There's two ways that I know of :
    1. Needs physical alteration of ACC radar boot loader and certain type of ACC radar. 100% reliable as long as you don't update the radar software. This is how it was done on my car a year ago and everything still works as from factory and no problems after service either.

    2. Fake FSID codes and some way to online activate them to the car. Don't know in detail how this happens but there's one Chinese guy who's also advertising remote activation of MQB functions in Facebook, but I know that VAG is already done some things to prevent this. So not sure how long this will work and what happens when you take the car in for a service. Does it detect from factory that the car should not have these codes and it wipes them from gateway?

    Hello
    I swapped panel and it works !!! Thank you!
    About SWAP:
    I mean 2. - it makes one Chinese Guy.
    I have there Drive select but after i swapped gateway there is it not available :-/
    I need only add Cruise Control activation, but is very hard to find him.
    Do you know how to activate remotely ?

    Good to hear that. Probably the panel you bought is not correct for your car. The airbag light, as I mentioned, is part of safety systems and if it does not match the one in the car, it gives that error.

    You will get drive select back by going back to the dealer who did the component protection removal and ask them to return the Feature enablement codes to the gateway. After that drive select will work again. They clearly did not do it even it's in the procedure when swapping gateway. You're not the first one to miss features when swapping gateway, there's another thread about this same thing and all was well after dealer returned the features back. They know how to do it. There's even a guided function for that on their diagnostic software.

    And about the ACC activation. Let me explain this to you, I did this in other thread but I try to explain it here as well.
    You CANNOT just add the activation code to the car. It does not work that way. All the FeC's, codes that enable certain features in the modules, are installed to the car during manufacturing phase. The codes are stored to factory database and are tied against your cars VIN number.
    Now when you add a module that needs a FeC, like ACC radar. The module makes a challenge check to gateway, which works as a master, to verify that the FeC is activated. If it is not, the challenge fails and the module is immediately disconnected. The only exception is media system which AFAIK, internally checks the codes. It doesn't check them against gateway.

    Normal cruise control you can retrofit IF you buy the package from manufacturer aftersales. The reason is that the package comes with an one-use enablement code, called also as SWaP (SoftWare As a Product) that will enable the FeC for the cruise control on the target car and at the same time it will store the FeC to factory database, again tied to the target car's VIN number. This enablement needs to be done at dealers as they have online connection to factory.

    ACC is not sold as retrofit or aftermarket package, so you cannot get the SWaP codes for it. At least not officially.
    How this Chinese guy does the enablement, I do not know. What I do know that VAG is aware of this and they've already put some countermeasures in to battle this. I do not know what these countermeasures are, so don't ask

    Again, what I know that only way to surely have working ACC is the hacked radar. You can join MQB coding group in Facebook and ask help from there about ACC retrofit. They can help you on this one.

    Like mentioned in the other thread as well, VAG is making our lives much more difficult on retrofit's with the introduction of SWaP. However, they could utilize it a lot better in my opinion by offering more aftermarket packages like ACC. The ACC could easily be sold as a retrofit part. Radar, stalk set, depending on equipment ABS block, new ABS sensors and possibly new instrument cluster. Of course pricey, but hey, that's life But it would provide more money to the company's back pocket because there would always be people who would buy this package.

    One little "electrical" comment from my side.

    if your new panel has no light indicator (led) for "passenger airbag off", then you can simply "cheat" it with a led between the correct pinouts of the T20 connector of the new panel.

    connecting an orange led, and hiding it inside the hole would be an idea, that can cheat the system, making it think system is working as normal.

    Hello guys
    i have not reply from this Chinese Guy about enable ACC radar - after i tried more than 1 month to contact him :-/
    Do you have any other solution ?
    MQB-Coding & Retrofit did not reply me on 2 messages on facebook and there is no other contact email.
    I have no Cruise Control installed originaly in my car :-/
    Thank you!
