Jump to: navigation, search

This procedure details how to change the instrument cluster on VW/Audi/Seat/Skoda vehicles with Immobilizer III, where the immobilizer control module is integrated in instrument cluster. See the seperate instructions for models where the immobilizer control module is integrated in a separate immo box or where the immobilizer control module is integrated in kessy (Keyless Entry and Start SYstem).

Instrument Cluster Swapping

Prerequisites:

  • The new or used cluster is installed in the car.
  • Battery voltage at least 12.0 V.
  • All relevant coding and adaptation values have been transferred from the OLD (ORIGINAL) cluster to the REPLACEMENT (NEW or USED) cluster.
    • Immo 3 Audi vehicles typically use adaptation channels 060, 061 and 062 for the internal installation list since they do not have address 19-CAN Gateway. If in question, run a complete Adaptation Control Module Map with the old module installed.
    • Immo 3 VW vehicles typically use short coding in address 19-CAN Gateway. If the original value is 00006, which is common, recode the new unit to the same value to refresh the internal gateway installation list.
  • Make sure to have BOTH PIN's, from the OLD (ORIGINAL) and the REPLACEMENT (NEW or USED) instrument cluster.
  • Make sure to have the Radio Code (for factory radios only).


[Select]
[17 - Instruments]


[Login - 11]
For the following procedure, use the PIN of the REPLACEMENT (NEW or USED) instrument cluster.

  • 4-digit PIN
    • Enter zero followed by the 4-digit PIN directly in the Login field. For example, if your PIN is 1234, enter 01234.

[Do it!]


[Adaptation - 10]
Enter 050 in "Channel Number".
[Read]
For the following procedure, use the PIN of the OLD (ORIGINAL) instrument cluster.

  • 4-digit PIN
    • Enter zero followed by the 4-digit PIN directly in the New Value field. For example, if your PIN is 1234, enter 01234.

[Test]

  • The values may change to "32000", this is normal

[Save]
[Done, Go Back]
[Close Controller, Go Back - 06]

  • Switch OFF the ignition and let the car sit for ~1 minute, then switch ON the ignition again.
  • Verify that the REPLACEMENT (NEW or USED) instrument cluster now shows the VIN/IMMO-ID of the vehicle now.




Special Notes

  • Instructions for mileage entry on a new instrument cluster can be found here: Non-Immo Instrument Cluster Swapping
    • Please note the Country Coding and Kilometer -or- Mile units prior to saving the adaptation value!
  • If "Disabled" is shown in Adaptation Channel 050, the Instrument Cluster may have lock time. Check Measuring Blocks 022, 023 and 024.
