    hi thanks for that extra and superb info i even rigged up the steering control module today lol only thing i have left is the bcm which was next on my list... i have a few mk7 clusters as i code them in etc and can remove cp via geko but i wanted a to set a rig up on my bench to experiment further and to power up clusters to check mileage on them etc without the need of a physical car as when i try them in a car have to code the original ones back etc ball ache... im going to try change the adaptations on a cluster then try it on the bench ps i get no ignition lights on the bench whatsoever as yet

    ^^^^Jimmy: Please share any observations that you make - I'm very interested in your findings

    PS: If you want to sell a spare hex17 module and you are willing to accommodate the appalling FX exchange rate between our countries, please let me know!
    PPS: If you have a yen to read more about cluster illumination in the mk7, HERE is a description from the deranged ramblings of a decrepit mind! It's purely a guess which is likely to be completely wrong, but which may provide an insight into what's happening inside the instrument module

    Don, where did you get the female OBDII connector and lead? Did you use an RT OBDII extender - or get something more local?

    I'm not sure where Don got his, but we buy the ones we use for test setups here:

    You would need some of these pins to go with 'em:

    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.

    Zenerdiode: I'm sure that the units that Uwe recomends are of better quality, but I wasn't too fussed about quality for the test jig (it was a case of cheap-and-nasty will suffice). Purchased mine from eBay (see below). Alas supplier is China - but doubtless delivery to UK is quicker than to the distant continent that I live-on!

    Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but I am stumped about what to do next. I have a testbed of an Audi MMI3GP main unit, screen, keyboard, gateway all connected to my VCDS cable. All seems to work OK, but I cannot play with the Bluetooth and WLAN which ask me to turn the ignition on.

    The main unit has no terminal 15 connector, so I assume it gets ignition on messages through the MOST optical network. Reading through this thread I believe I need a J519 to produce these messages over the CAN bus to the gateway which connects to the main unit by the MOST??? My problem is how I connect up the power to the J519 in order to get it producing the ignition on messages.

    Thanks,

    This may be an occasion of having to swallow a bird to catch the spider, having swallowed the spider to catch the fly...

    The T15 signal is distributed around the network from 19-CAN gateway, but in order for 19 to know to send it; it needs to have a message from 05-Access/Start Authorisation. Of course, this needs matched keys.

    So you are saying that after eating the bird, spider and fly I'm stuffed ;-)

    It does make sense that producing the ignition on messages needs to be controlled in some way. This is modern cars for you. I guess I'll have to do the Bluetooth/WLAN fiddling in the car.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Zenerdiode: If you ever find an easy-to-use CAN message emulator that doesn't cost the annual budget for a small African nation - I'm all ears! It shouldn't be difficult to do with a PC , a DAC and an interfacing circuit!
