    Golf R mk7 2014 - missing Race Mode Driver Profile

    Hello

    Recently retrofitted a Discover Pro Mib2 unit along with a brand new 2018 virtual cockpit dash. Had fuel guage error that was solved by changing out my old 5q0 gateway control module to a newer 3q0 gateway control module. However I have a missing driver profile error where by Race Mode is no longer available to select. I have Eco, Normal, Individual only.

    Does anybody have any advice or is there somebody who could help me? I have read in another post that this can be and has been solved.

    Thanks

    Isn't Race Mode a FeC that needs to be restored by someone with an ODIS/Fazit connection?

    Usual behaviour for this type of retrofit.

    You need to find someone who can remove CP and load parameters to GW.

    Hi the person who did the retrofit spent quite a few hours attempting to re-parameterise is what he said to me. He had someone remotely connect using odis to try and sort but no joy. Wondered if anyone had any exact steps to solve by any chance..? I have been without race mode for nearly 3months and it's super sad lol.

    Also I was told CP deffo removed and parameters of Golf R loaded on to the new gateway. What was weird is that racemode worked before on my old gateway with the retrofit but then had fuel guage error which basically left me to guess when my fuel tank was empty. Since upgrading to a new gateway I got the race mode issue. I've currently got the car at VW for a dsg oil change and asked if they could look into but they said they haven't got the slightest idea where to start and wouldn't want to break anything already programmed.

    Looks like you need to find a VW specialist who knows what they are doing

    djalix is in your neck of the woods. Google vagcarcoding and his details should come up. The driver profiles are FEC, i.e. Gateway. From memory this is caused by an incorrect dataset. Can you post a full autoscan so we can see.

    Djalix on this forum or is he the guy to ask for when contacting vagcarcoding website? I unfortunately don't have the car with me at the minute (it's at VW) so cannot pull a scan. Soon as I can I'll post it up. Cheers @myounus.

    Be sure to use legit interface.

    Issue I've seen with this type of retrofit is that parameter set gets deleted with mib2.5 install from gw and sometimes FEC isn't active for driver modes.

    I'm not aware if parameter for R and regular differ or just fec which tells which nr driver mode is active.
