Hi

I'm new here but Ive been trawling through this thread and others on other Forums for days trying to find the answer to a problem with my !C0959799B CCM.

Essentially, one of my two keys suddenly stopped working. It still recognised the immobiliser but no longer worked as a remote. So, I attempted to use VCDS to re-pair the remote but in Module 46(CCM) Adaptation Channel (1). I noticed that the Read Value was 1 (for one key). However when I tried to increase the value to 2 it wouldnt let me save any value other than 1. I then used Channel 0 to set the factory defaults after which I tried again to save a value of 2 in Channel 1 but again it would only allow a value of 1.

Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution or could point me towards the values in the CCM Eeprom I could investigate (I think it may be 04256 - 04270). I should have said that in all other respects the CCM is operating correctly with no problems, nor are their any fault codes reported.

Greetings Gmenounos, I have an Audi tt mk1 cluster to donate to you, so that you could add the support to mc912dg128 Motorola. Let me know when you want me to ship the cluster. Have a good one!

I seem to be having issues attempting to connect to my cluster in my 2004 TDI Wagon. When attempting to GetSKC or ReadSoftwareVersion i get a timeout error. Im using a VCDS HEX + CAN clone cable from Total Car Diagnostics that works with VCDS 17.1.3. I can confirm that i can use the cable to connect with this version of VCDS (that they provided) and read data from the cluster and ECU.

Ive uninstalled all drivers for the cable that windows installed, downloaded the VCP drivers and installed it for the cable, enabled "Load VCP" in the device settings, installed them again for the VCP drivers for the unidentified USB serial port that shows up and after doing so it shows as COM3. After this i disabled "boot in intelligent mode", tested, and saved in VCDS, and then unplugged and re-plugged in the cable. After doing these steps i am faced with the error as below.

Anyone able to provide some assistance?

I dont have a VAG-KKL cable unfortunately and since im in Canada the cheapest one on Amazon is like $35-$40. Ill be ordering one from Aliexpress with a CH340T chip unless someone recommends i get the FTDI FT232RL chip instead? Unfortunately this will take almost a month to get to me but is much cheaper at about $10-$15.

Try downloading VCDS-Lite and see if it will communicate over COM3 ( https://www.ross-tech.com/vcds-lite/download/ )
I'm pretty sure if that works then kw1281test should be able to work with your cable.

I guess the cable i have isnt going to work then. Just attempted to use it with VCDS Lite and it did not work. Ill be back when i get a KKL cable to try with the program. Im waiting on the new keys and immobilizer chips to show up in the meantime anyway 🤷‍♂️.

Im wanting to also enable the windows up and down with the remote button presses. It seems others have done this but its not immediately clear how exactly they did this/what they changed. I also want to enable the rear hatch on my wagon to unlock with the doors rather than have to always press the button on the remote or the button inside the car. Im going to re-read through this forum as last time i was mostly focused on getting my cable to connect. Is anyone able to provide some more detail on how this is done in the meantime?

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this project! This is truly amazing and i am incredibly grateful for people like you doing this kind of thing! Ill definitely be chipping a little money your way once i get the new cable and get it connected and working!

did you install the ch340.exe driver for the cable to run vcds-lite? i believe that's necessary

I did not. However i am using a VCDS HEX+CAN VAG17 cable from Total Car Diagnostics and it works with the RossTech drivers on the VCDS 17.1.3 they provide so i was using the RossTech VCP drives. I can try it with the CH340 driver but dont have high hopes for it working

i think i mis-read, it thought you were using the cheap vag-kkl cable for 409.1, that will work with ch340 i know.

What command are you running and what version of kw1281test? You should include the very beginning of the log where it shows the command and the version. The easiest way is probably to use the "Attach files" button in the forum to attach the kw1281test.log file that gets created whenever you run the program.

im not seeing anywhere where I can attach a file. I have been staring at this page for an hour and see nothing lol. Im pretty sure I used the DumpEeProm 204 6 command and have the most current version. This is the file I got saved. The other one above I just copied off the command line because it didn't save it.

BTW, you're not running anywhere close to the latest version (v0.80-beta). The latest version can always be found here: https://github.com/gmenounos/kw1281test/releases

As for matching the new immobilizer chip to your car, you can't use VCDS-Lite because it only supports the first 9 adaptation channels and you need to access channel 21.

You should be able to do it with kw1281test. I don't know how many people have done this successfully with kw1281test since most of the people here own VCDS, but I mentioned how in this post:
https://forums.tdiclub.com/index.ph...tacho-alternative.509151/page-24#post-5678277

So, given that your car is Immo3, your SKC is 02622 your cable is connected to COM3 and you're matching 1 key, you need to do the following:
  1. Put the key containing the new immobilizer chip in the ignition and turn it to "run" so that the ECU and cluster are powered up.
  2. Hook up your laptop and cable to the OBD port.
  3. .\KW1281Test COM3 10400 17 AdaptationSave 21 1 02622
  4. Take out the key that's in the ignition and put it in again. Turn the ignition to on (but not start) and the Immo light in the cluster should come on and then turn off in a couple of seconds.
You should then be able to start the car with that key. Let us know if that worked.

Probably not, at least not with kw1281test. I've never seen a cluster like that so I don't know how to retrieve the SKC. If someone wanted to send me one then I could possibly add support, but unlikely otherwise.

I will give a shot here in a minute. I did have the latest version installed and saw somewhere in the thread That someone went back to version .62 or something like that and, where able to retrieve their SKC so I figured i would give it a shot.

Tried it a couple of times and this is all I'm getting

Not sure what's going on. I guess you could try the older version and see if you get better results. I'll try in my own car when I have time.

Hello, I've been playing around with the kw1281test software its really great thanks to the Dev. I've been reading through this thread and i think ive run into a road block with a clarion premium VI headunit i have in a new (to me) Mk4 is the radio code obtainable from EEPROM dump or is it just not possible to get from these units?
(Sorry, this one fell through the cracks over the holidays)

The only radios that kw1281test can recover the SAFE code for are the Clarion Premium IV and the Delco Premium V. All the research to unlock those (and quite a few other single-DIN VW radios) was done by Mike Naberezny ( https://github.com/mnaberez/vwradio ). I think he's only got a MK3 so he can't fit any of the double-DIN (like the Premium VI) in his car, and so hasn't tried to reverse engineer any of those.

It looks like this cluster uses a different challenge/response than most of the other clusters that kw1281test supports. If I had one here, I _might_ be able to add support for it, but it would cost me at least $60 to order one from Europe just to be able to try.
