VAG Steering Column Lock Adaptation Procedure Now Available

Earlier this year, VAG made available a new part for the steering column lock which allows for the existing immobiliser to be adapted to the new steering column lock.

In response, the Autologic VAG team have incorporated a new procedure into the Autologic VAG software which, providing the PIN code can be extracted from the ECU, can be utilised on Volkswagen Passat 3C chassis models.

Although only currently available for diesel engines, Autologic VAG software engineers are already working on a process for petrol engines too. The benefit of this new procedure for independent garages is that the independent now no longer has to take the vehicle to the dealer to get the two ECUs matched as with Autologic it can be done on-site without the hassle!
