Hi fellas - rather then searching for old threads here a question hopefully someone can answer.
I have a 2005 Touareg V8 and looking to buy a 2012~2013 TDI.
Most come with the factory trailer hitch receiver but I am not sure if that means they have the Control Module installed.
I also noticed many do not have the female connector on the hitch. I know that is easy to install if the wiring is there.
So what is installed from the factory if the hitch receiver is installed?

Does it mean I still have to ad a control module if I want all the following benefits from such module?
  • Disables the hatch electrical lift.
  • If some one tries to steal your trailer the alarm will sound if the car is locked and armed.
  • Checks to see if the trailer lights are working and reports if not.
  • Changes the shift pattern for towing.
  • Integrates with vehicle's stability control and trailer brake controller to reduce sway.
And if no Control Module installed on the TDI could I use the one from my old (first generation) Touareg?

Thanks in advance.
