I suppose I should read that link. Very curious to see how you adapt the module to the car. I paused my project on trying to retrofit the rear KESSY on my mk7 R as I couldn’t find a way to retrofit the 40-pin KESSY module from the mk7.5. Can’t wait to see your results!
What module p/n did you go with? And the thought being that this p/n will work without being tied to the ESL?The biggest hurdle for some time has been the electronic steering lock. That unit was tied to VIN and, as I understand it, to the KESSY module part number that came in the car.
But, as described in the link, there are now cars being delivered with KESSY and without the electronic steering lock.
@Cuzoe : Hi.My module is part number 3Q0 959 435 N. One of the peculiar things is that the adaptation in the BCM for electronic steering lock has to be set to "not installed" before connecting the KESSY module to the CAN bus. And that has to be a new module, or a used module from a car that also did not have electronic steering lock.
