just need to get the sucker coded!!
We spoke about this briefly on the phone.
I wonder if there is an Eeprom in there that can be lifted and moved over to the new unit and bingo. Kerrching
As already discussed if the "fault" is in the Eeprom data (Corruption) then all we do is shift the problem to the new TCU. I agreed with you at the time. Still stand by that.
Eeprom data corruption is not going to affect Can Voltages or cause noise on the network. Is it ??
Missing Messages, Invalid data, gremlins and the Like - Yes agreed.
The process is easily reversible should it not work. Then we also have the opportunity to clone the TCU from the Donor vehicle you hopefully still have. It is not corrupted and we have proof of that. We may have to convert some Hex to ASCI and/or Decimal to realign the VIN so it is all matched, happy and legal.
All said and done, it is MED 9, regardless of which car it is bolted into, a Gallardo or a Golf with DSG??
Just a suggestion, Plan B or C should you be struggling.
Of course if you can get it coded as per VM preferred methods then I would encourage you to take that route. It is a no brainer.
Would be shame to let the dealer take away the Eureka moment, the Glory, the lap of honour
after all your efforts and heartache.
Let me know.
