Ok thanks, so if I do this, and in the future I need to swap my ECU (with another immo-2 ECU), will I still use the ECU swap procedure for immo-2? Or will something about the procedure change?An Immo3 cluster will work fine with an Immo2 ECU (but not the other way around).
Ok, sounds reasonable. And yeah, I figured Passat GLX would be my best bet. What’s the best way to acquire a compatible mk4 cluster dump? Would it need to be from a certain part number range? I assume most B5.5 Passats with FIS will be running VWK503MH, no? Is that a good thing, or would finding one with VWK501MH software be better for any reason?To get the door open indicator, you'll also need a 1C0 CCM and the 'comfort CAN' wiring to the cluster. Besides that, it should be more-or-less plug and play. I have an IMMO 3 FIS cluster in my '00 along with a 1C0 CCM, but stock IMMO2 ECU. B5.5 Passat clusters are also compatible if you flash them with a Mk4 cluster dump and swap the Mk4 lens/gauge faces over (they're a bit cheaper to source usually).
Oh, a few other things:
- for the DSG swap, I’ll need to recode the cluster (0x065 changes from 80 to 81) to take vehicle speed signal from the ABS data on the CAN bus. Greg, I think I’ve seen that this can be done with kw1281test…am I remembering correctly?
- My ECU and cluster each need a bit flipped to enable auto transmission, correct? Quote from someone who’s done it: “Address 1B6 orginal value in my clocks was 15. If you plan to do a AWD conversion then you need to change the 1 to a 9 to see the AWD module in the CAN Gateway. If not, leave 1 for FWD. To change from manual to DSG then change the 5 to a 7.”
