This page applies to CAN Protocol Address 62-Door, Rear Left and Address 72-Door, Rear Right found in (1K/5K/52) Mk5 and Mk6 Golf based vehicles using Generation 1 through Generation 3.

  • Make sure the vehicle you are working on uses the CAN Protocol, VCDS will display the protocol type in the upper left hand corner of the Open Controller Screen under the Comm Status.
  • The CAN Protocol modules this page applies to use Short Coding which consists of 7 digits. See example below.
  • The Generation can be confirmed by looking at the label file field. The following examples are from a 3rd Generation (MIN3) module found in a 2009 Jetta:
Address 62: Door, Rear Left        Labels: 1K0-959-703-GEN3.lbl
  Part No SW: 1K0 959 703 AH    HW: 1K0 959 795 T
  Component: J388   TUER-SG HL   1401  
  Coding: 0001168
Address 72: Door, Rear Right        Labels: 1K0-959-704-GEN3.lbl
  Part No SW: 1K0 959 704 AH    HW: 1K0 959 794 T
  Component: J389   TUER-SG HR   1401  
  Coding: 0001168

Note: The rear doors in Mk6 Golf based models using the latest (UDS/ODX) protocol do not communicate directly via diagnostic addresses 62 or 72. This is normal because they are sub systems (slaves) of the front addresses 42 and 52. This will be explained on the Generation 4 Wiki page.


The coding chart that appears in VCDS will apply to the Generation of the installed control module. The Short Coding is additive, meaning the sum of numbers that represent the installed equipment. This chart can be used as a general guide:

  • +0000008 = Interior Door Handle Illumination installed (PR-QQ4/QQ6)
  • +0000016 = Automatic Run active
  • +0000064 = Door Exit/Warning Light installed (PR-QQ4)
  • +0000128 = 5-Door Chassis (PR-0A2)
  • +0000256 = Seat Memory
  • +0000512 = Right Hand Steering (PR-L0R)
  • +0001024 = Safe-Motor not installed (PR-5C1)
  • +0002048 = Pinch Protection inactive


When a Generation 1 through Generation 3 module is replaced with the same type:

  • Run and save a complete Auto-Scan and save it prior to module removal. See the Online Manual Auto-Scan.
  • Code the new module with the Coding from the original module found in the Auto-Scan. Enter non-zero Workshop Code (WSC), Importer and Equipment numbers to prevent rejected coding and DTCs such as 01042.
  • Run all of the windows up/down to teach the Pinch Protection limit stops which resolves DTCs: 00935 and 00934
  • Clear fault codes verify all functions are working as per design.
  • Run and save a final Auto-Scan to confirm fault codes did not return.
