Some questions, I'm glad you've listed the part number thanks so much. I just got VCDS up and running and a cable and I definitely want to do this modification. However I can't see any guide on how you detach the old button and fit the new one? is it clipped in?It's been a long while since I posted anything but I have traded my trusty 2005 V8 'Reg for a new one late last year, so now I have a list of mods that I made on my 2016 TDI Lux that think would be of interest to everyone with a late model T3 'Reg.
I still have a wish list, so if anyone knows how to code these, I would love to hear about it:
Retain steering wheel heat setting
Auto closing (without having to touch the indentation on the door handle)
Rain Closing of windows and sunroof
Oil Temp Display
Parking brake release without seatbelt on
Battery Status Display
Enable Google Map
So, here goes the list of tested mods listed in order of the control modules. These all work on my 2016 TDI Lux.
I collected these from many different sources, so I am not taking credit for anything more than to list them in one place.
02-Auto Trans – Enable Gear Display
[Coding - 07] -> Long Coding Helper -> Byte 1
Change Byte 1 from 00000010 to 00000101 (Hex 02 to 05)
Original code: 01 02 00 00 0C 00 84 00000000000000000000000000
New Code: 01 05 00 00 0C 00 84 00000000000000000000000000
The transmission needs to be reset for this change to take effect.
Reset transmission:1. Selector in P03-ABS Brakes – Enable Auto Hold
2. Ignition on, no start
3. Accelerator to floor for 30 seconds
4. Release accelerator
5. Ignition off
6. Lock doors
7. Unlock doors
First, need to replace the parking brake switch in the center console with a European version, P/N: 7P1 927 225A
This can be easily bought from European e-bay sites for about $30 plus shipping. Note: the illumination of the switch is red, not white.
Replacing it is pretty simple. It is a direct plug-in, there are several detailed descriptions on how to do it with pictures on VW sites.
Then the following coding change needs to be made:
[Coding - 07] - Byte 16 – Change “01110011” to “01110111” from “73” to “77” in binary.
Original code: 5B 76 13 C3 49 24 6F 57 DA FA C8 93 92 D6 F6 60 73 01
New Code: 5B 76 13 C3 49 24 6F 57 DA FA C8 93 92 D6 F6 60 77 01
Great thanks! I have my 2011 Treg (with auto hold switch) parked waiting for the Canadian buy back....judge is signing off on settlement April 5. In the mean time I took possession of a "new" 2016 Touareg TDI comfortline without the auto hold (bummer!!). So my thinking is to switch the 2 switches, do the VAG coding, and voila I should be golden:grin2:! Thanks again Skelly!Here's the link to the thread, that is specific to this upgrade.
Page 7 of the thread gave me the confidence to remove the trim on an expensive vehicle. As with any automotive plastic, ONLY do it when it's at least 65 or 70 degrees - much easier to work with. The center console made terrible noises as I pried it up, and I think I was almost standing over the console to be sure I could pull it straight up. It was one of the first times I was glad I had a set of plastic trim removal tools to get it started.
Has anyone else experienced the same? Has to do with comfort opening mod?I've done a few of these mods on my 2015 TDI and now i got the "Check SAFELOCK" message after i remove the key from ignition.
Looks like it could be linked to the remote comfort opening mod...?
I've tried and you are really lock in the car if someone is left in it and you lock the doors, the inside handles dont open the doors (even if you pull 2x or more).
This can be a bit dangerous and would like to remove that fonction that was activated somewhere in the mod process, which i, have no idea where.
