Since some said they don't have the new Bentley, here are the instructions how to configure Immo3 cluster on Immo3 car. Once again, read very carefully and read everything. You can use same IC coding file from above, and you should have same coding of the Gateway. The only different procedure is for the immobilizer and that is in the following file:
http://pics.tdiclub.com/members/eugo...I%20coding.pdf

All of these PDF file require Adobe Acrobat Reader version 5 which can be freely downloaded from adobe's web.

The support for new secret codes has been introduced in the latest, .81 version of VAG-COM which you can also freely download from Uwe's site and can upgrade any older registered version and remain registered.

OK Ready for this Jarods cluster is now working in my Jetta.
I believe I know what the problem is. Some of the clusters are
coming in ALREADY LOCKED, I know I did the first one right
from the start but the code would not take so I played and played
and it finally took the code, but in the process messed up the interface
with the ECU Motor codes.
Follow these instructions to the T for cars with (w) on the key. Most 2000 2001
Install cluster and get 7 digit code, date of code, dealer WSC and importer code
Go to 17 instruments
When opened next go to 11 log on
Do 7 digit code, page will open put in the 7 digit code wsc and importer number
Make sure date in day 7 digit was generated.
Press enter with your mouse
IF THE LOGIN FAILS STOP NOW Log out of vagcom
Leave key turned on, put charger on battery and let the car set for FULL 255 min
I let mine set for 4.5 hrs. This should reset the cluster. IT will not reset with the
Key off I tried.
Now turn vagcom back on go to 17 then 11 log on it should now load the code.
if logged in now go to #10 adaptation screen opens you will see two 00 highlighted
hit 21 on the computer which lets you code the keys the lower left number most likely 3 is the one you want clear it out retype 3 into block hit test , save , adapt keys per instruction PTC posted
once keys are done DO NOT START CAR
go back to 17 instruments log back in go to 11 adaptation the same 00 should be highlighted delete put in 00 save turn off car FOR LESS THEN 60 Seconds turn car
back on DO NOT START CAR FOR 2 min, I went 3 to be safe. Start car all should be good.
NOTE these are the same instructions posted by PTC the only difference is letting the car set for 4.5 hrs with the key on the very first time the code does not take.
DO NOT clear fault until everything else is done.
DO NOT code the software. DO all the step as PTC POSTED After you get the code in.

Just came across this topic on vortex:
Service Interval Reminder

Basically enable service interval on US/Canada cars:
Quote:
Finaly after research, I was able to setup service reminder on US spec cluster. I think is very useful futer, no idea why is disabled on US cars. Anybody with VAG-COM can do that, by changing coding in your cluster. This only can work on cars with CAN BUS build from 05.00. for example US Golf cluster coding is 07232 so you have to replace 4-th digit (3 with 0 as for cars with fixed service intervals without oil/temp. sender), after this go to:
1. channel 43 in Instrument Cluster (upper limit for distance to next inspection step size is 1000 km, by default 15000 km=9400 miles)
2. channel 44 is upper limit for time to next inspection in days, step size is 1 day by default 365
3. channel 40 is distance traveled since last inspection, step in 100km (ex. 5200 km= 052)
4. channel 41 is time elapsed since the last inspection, step 1 day
First the channels 43 and 44 must be adapted, because the values of channels 40 and 41 may not be greater than the upper limits of channels 43 and 44. Adaptation must be done using kilometers (1 mile equates to approx. 1.609 km )
To reset service interval go to Instrument Cluster Adaptation channel 2 enter 0 and save.
Service Reminder will display on your cluster (in place of the curent odo display, just fo couple sec.)after certain milleage(usualy 2000 miles or 3200km or time set in channel 43 and 44, as Service in _____ and it will countdown every 100 miles(km), when you turn your ignition ON.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">
Quote:
Yes this will work on euro cars as well, but in euro cars you have couple options, depends if your car is equipd with oil/temp. sender then you have to follow this:
0 is for vehicles with fixed service intervals without oil/temp. sender
1 is for vehicles with flexible service intervals with oil/temp. sender
2 is for vehicles with fixed service intervals with oil/temp. sender
3 is for vehicles without service interval display (USA, Canada)
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">For testing:
Quote:
try this go to channel 40 enter 119 as 11900 km from last inspection, then when you turn you ignition Service in 3200 should appear in place of the odometer just for couple sec. I just forgot to mention cluster is counting mileage in a backgroung, until 2000 miles or 3200 km(dependts of country code) before due date or distance to the next service, and is decreasing this distance on display every 100 miles or km. Starting from 3200 km to 0 so you have time to prepare.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Thanks for tdi28 over on vortex. I tried on my Euro cluster and it works.
So I would like to share this information on the topic for a complete reference. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Immo III is supposed to go like this with a NEW cluster:

Get Immo-ID from OLD Cluster
Go to dealer and get SKC
Install NEW cluster
Go to Adaptation Channel 50 and use OLD SKC
Save
Close Controller
Turn off key within 1 minute
Start car after 2 minutes
Done

I have a Used cluster so i am supposed to:
Get Immo-ID from OLD and NEW Cluster
Go to dealer and get SKCs
Install NEW cluster
Log into to NEW cluster with NEW SKC
Go to Adaptation Channel 50 and use OLD SKC
Save
Close Controller
Turn off key within 1 minute
Start car after 2 minutes
Done

It doesn't work for me but its b/c one of my SKC's are bad. I wish i had the ability to look it up my damn self, the dealer keeps putting it into the computer incorectly. I have been there SO many times...

I must say again that AFAIK there are NO Golf 4s (or Jettas/Boras) in Europe without Immobilizer. I have a MY99 which was produced in September of 1998 and it has Immobilizer II.
The only potential problem could be CAN-bus communication on pre-MY00 cars.

I know this is a VERY old thread, but its still referenced a lot for those doing this mod. I recently did this mod to my car and the wires to the back of the instrument cluster were different on my car (2003 Jetta wagon) than the wires in this writeup.

The wires I needed are part number 000 979 009

Hope that helps someone else doing this mod.
