Easy Open Retrofit

Good morning,
I purchased a kit to install the Easy Open trunk opener in my 2013 VW Touareg. The kit came with the controller, the sensor wires, and the harness. Unfortunately, it did not provide documentation on where to hook up the two wires on the harness. I've been looking on ELSA, and I can't find where I'm supposed to hook this to. I believe it will hook into the CCM, since I think it's technically part of KESSY, but I'm guessing. I know people have done this on other vehicles, mainly Passats from what I've seen, but no details on the wiring. I've already run the wires from under the steering wheel back to the rear bumper, I just need to hook everything up.

Anybody know where it hooks up to?

Are you talking about the 'kick the hitch' and the trunk opens?

This is going to be interesting. I got a few people did that to different vehicles, and the funny thing is, the lift gates opened while they were driving over some thing that registered a "trigger", like a plastic bag, pot hole, or curb/shrub/ball. Let us know the results when you're done.

My 2014 Touareg has the factory power tailgate and foot sensor. It's completely disabled if the car is turned on (engine or accessories). Even the switch on the hatch handle won't open it. If I need to get something out of the back, I have to turn the car completely off first. The only time it's opened with the engine on is when it failed to close/lock correctly.

Hopefully any aftermarket system on a 2013 has similar protection features.

I would think you need a matching CCM?
