Driver profile selection - retrofit possible?

I got the same error when tried to activate it on the dealer with original FeC code.

So after some searching on the internet I have managed to activate it remotely with a guy from MQB cars retrofit. They are active on facebook, instagram, etc.

I could not believe it that it worked. He used my original key to activate it online.

The title of this thread had me thinking it was about activating actual Driver Profile Selection (ie. Personalization - for people who share their car with another person, so they can have customized settings saved to their profile...), not Driving MODE Profiles.

Old thread I know... but does anyone know which adaptations need to be set to enable the driving profile menu in 5F Infotainment? I have BCM long coding done, steering module coding done, instrument panel coding done, and button installed. Driving profiles were added via remote coding a while back, although I didn't have the button installed yet. Now I do and when I press the button I get an indication that the mode has changed on the infotainment status bar and in the instrument cluster... eco, comfort, normal, sport, individual, as expected. But I don't get the menu, as shown two posts above.

Its "charisma" in adaptations. Let me dig up the details, I remember documenting here somewhere. When I installed a new head unit the adaptations were not set up for the driving profiles to pop up. It took awhile of comparing the adaptations maps and changing settings to figure out which one was responsible.

"Heads up on getting driving modes pop up menu to work after replacing head unit.

I recently replaced the MIB2 3Q0035844 head unit which I swapped with a 3Q0035844B due to a problem with the unit draining battery
https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/index.php?threads/infotainment-unit-draining-battery.379517/ After CP removal and FeC installation, my "driving modes" pop up menu did not function when pressing driving mode button. You need to change this line of adaptations code to active to get driving modes pop up menu to work

Message @doctor for more info, the guys at VAG Retrofit and Coding did the work remotely. My car did not come with profiles at all. And even after they added them they had do some additional work to get the menu to show up on my infotainment. The profile names would change at the top but no menu, and probably other issues that I don't even know about. I won't pretend to know what they did or all they ultimately had to do, but everything works now. I have no experience with ODIS at all.

Once hardware is installed a Functional Enablement Code needs to be installed (FeC). Someone who does this sort of thing remotely with ODIS can perform. There are few folks who do this that post in the DIY MIB1 to MIB2 thread. This post goes into detail concerning installing FeC. https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/inde...-retrofit-possible.316747/page-3#post-6553284. Once adaptation needs to be changed in the 5F Infotainment Module which I detailed here: https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/inde...-retrofit-possible.316747/page-4#post-7575669. This kit has hardware along with PIN for installing via ODIS it is Driving Modes Activation Document part number is 5G0054809. https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/index.php?threads/driving-modes-activation-document-5g0054809.350834/
