Possible Symptoms

  • Wiring/Connections from/to N360
  • Faulty N360

Possible Solutions

  • Check wiring/connections from/to N360

Special Notes

  • If the ignition will not switch on, the communication with the Access Start controller still maybe possible, Try this:
    • Turn on the hazards, press the brake pedal and hold the flash to pass
    • This will wake-up(activate) the CAN-Bus and may allow limited communication to the vehicle
    • If present clear the N360 fault code and if the vehicle's ignition power is now active, suspect a failed N360.
  • When found in the Volkswagen Passat 3C, please see this page VW Passat (3C) Immobilizer
  • When found on the Audi A6/S6/RS6/allroad (4F) the N360 is part of the steering column and is not available separately from the Audi at this time.
  • See TSB / TPI 2040593 for possible part/software update when found in Audi Q7 and A6 (2005 to 2014).
  • Vehicles equipped with Immobilizer 4C or higher will require an online connection with VW/Audi/Bentley to correctly adapt the new N360 to the vehicle. erWin offers some Immobilizer and Pass-Thru solutions which are mentioned under the notes section of our Official Factory Repair Information page.
  • Replacement with a used N360 is not supported.
