    Possible to remove coding for subwooder and radio completely?

    Hi everyone.

    This isn't exactly a retrofit in the sense that I'm adding a new vw controller or feature to my car, but it's a modification all the same.



    Is it possible to remove the radio from the installation list? I have an aftermarket head unit that will never be replaced with an Audi headunit. I removed it from the CAN gateway install list with the check box. Doing that create a coding error in CAN gateway controller:

    Code:
    Address 19: CAN Gateway        Labels: 1K0-907-530-V3.clb
    
       Part No SW: 1K0 907 530 L    HW: 1K0 907 951

    Also, is it possible to remove the coding for the subwoofer? I have removed it and it's never going back in the car. Here is the error I get for that...

    As a general rule, aftermarket radio retrofits in modern cars will never be 100% free of fault codes. This is because the radios are connected to CAN bus but don't fully emulate a factory radio.

    As for the subwoofer, if 47 still talks, there's a module that should be removed from the car. Once that module has been removed, you should be able to un-check it from the Gateway Installation List.

    Ah, well in this car the Amp for the factory sub is also the amp for the rear door speakers. I suspect the amp is the controller as well? I mean if the sub is wired to the amp, the amp would be the only thing that could detect whether or not a speaker is wired to it I ASSume. I have indeed left the factory amp in place as it still powers the rear door speakers.

    I suppose I could trick the amp out and wire in a resistor into the harness that plugged into the factory sub woofer box.

    Bugger about the radio coding.

    I fully admit this is nit picking and I'm a bit OCD when it comes to this AUTOSCAN stuff. Just once I'd love to see an autoscan with no malfunctions listed. Which is why my other thread about my HVAC codes is bother the piss outa me.
