Engine Control Module Fried
Hello everyone, i have a question about a 2009 volkswagen tiguan 2.0t car crank no start, diagnosed it and found fried ECM (engine control module). I am wondering if someone can give me info if it is possible to program a used ecm and i do have ross tech vag-com but i think a login code for the car will be required to be able program a used ecm, can anyone tell me how i can get that login code?
Hi , You need to send the used ecu to someone that can clear the immobiliser information and then you can program the ecu to the car . You can then extract the pin code from the dash panel and then program the ecu . Regards George
Thank you George.
Sali the only way that I know that you can program the ECM on a VW or Audi is by using ODIS the factory scan tool. They have everything locked down. You will need an LSID that you can apply for from NASTF.org followed by a special approval by VW thst is done via Germany. Hope this Information helps
No problem...it all about helping each other since no one knows everything
what?! But I heard that YOU knew everything, G? Just funnin'. Aloha from Maui. (visit soon)
I wish I did 😎 I would love to come back out an teach a few classes. I enjoyed be on the main island.
Hi Sali, My understanding is that officially, used is a no go for 2005 and up VAG vehicles. I have had customers try the dealer route. It did not end well.

It is not only stored in the Flash section of the ECU but in the EEPROM which is
