Hey guys new here,I'm looking to do this retro fit but wondering does the calibration have to be spot on with ODIS for this to work or can it accept anything?
And yes i understand if its not 100% accurate its dangerous!!!

cheers

It doesnt have to be spot on, you have 2.5 degrees of offset to play with.

Then the car will compensate while doing your dynamic calibration.

So my TDI S has no can (extended or otherwise) wires in the black connector outboard of the driver kick panel ?. Anybody know where else I can pick up can extended? Or what other modules get can extended that may be easier to tap into?

Nuje sent me a couple wiring diagrams. They mention a can extended high/low connection point 1 & 2 (described as being "in main harness) but I'm not sure where. I suppose they could also not be present on my car.

If I can't come up with a suitable location I may order one of these, picture taken from AliExpress. Looks to be a clean way to tie in, and soooo much less annoying than tapping in at/near the gateway connector. Working up above the pedals will be a total pain.

those are can wires in the orange plug in your photo, top right of the TIUL coupling. I'd have to reference the wiring diagram to confirm but I think you can tap in there too.

Really... I hope so, and hope they're can extended and not one of the others (diagnosis, running gear, comfort, what else is there, haha).

I need to download the full diagrams for car. Probably do it tonight after knocking out some homework.

Does anyone have a link or the measurements for setting up the calibration board in relation to the car?

I have the board printed and I set it 150cm from the centre of the front wheel hubs, with the middle white rectangle at the same level as the camera....and ODIS reported "no target seen" (or wording to that effect).

I thought I'd seen the layout earlier in this thread, but on quick pass-through (again), I couldn't find it.

so to confirm, you don't have a male plug at all for the black harness? What about on the back side?

Correct, nothing in the back of the black plug either, except the 4 wires at the bottom but I don't think they're can. Attached the best picture I could grab.

See points 1 and 2 of the Yellow (Female) plug (T17G), if I'm not mistaken, these points talk to the Gateway. Point 1 - CAN High. Point 2 - CAN low. test before.
the brown plug is T17E and T17M. there are definitely CAN wires in there, I THINK 9 and 11 are high and low...still trying to find the schematic and confirm.




edit: here is the diagram for the camera, it lists 9 and 11 but doesn't say if they are extended high or not.

Thanks to drawings provided by several folks in this thread I have all but confirmed my car has no can extended wiring. Looking through everything, can extended is connected to several modules (front camera, front radar, headlamp range control, high beam assist module, blind spot detection module 1 & 2)... none of which I have in my TDI S, haha.

Fortunately I've already ordered that can bus extension harness I pictured a few posts back. It will make the addition of can bus extended wiring into my car a trivial matter and will be relatively clean. Unfortunately, it is coming slow boat from overseas; slower/slowest boat considering the state of things.

I am sorry to carry bad news but if the car has no options that require EXT CAN then you probably don't have a HIGH Gateway.

it means it doesn't have the pins, just like the BCM for heated seats.

can you pull module 19 info with VCDS and post here?

oh, should you need to replace the gateway, it's gonna be another blood bath with THAT dealer :(

Haha, I think I'm done with the dealer... but they did get the adaptations done finally. Gateway has been replaced with highline version already, did it with Jack from Poland Monday of last week.

*Replaced with part number called out in ETKA... bought a used one eBay
