VW Group Diagnostics

 We regularly undertake vehicle diagnostics on VW group vehicles, using our original full version of Vag-com (VCDS) we are able to scan & diagnose all systems on VW group vehicles including carrying out coding & programming functions including key programming etc.

VW Group ECU programming

 If you need to replace either the engine ECU or Instrument cluster on a modern VAG group vehicle you will be aware that they are synchronised (Locked) to each other and are not interchangeable with second-hand units, however we are able to 'clone' (Bench program) second-hand units by transferring data files from the original faulty unit to the replacement donor unit enabling a second-hand unit to be fitted with no further programming necessary meaning the original keys will work and in the case of instrument clusters the correct mileage will be displayed. We can also remove the immobiliser from many VW / SEAT & Skoda ECU's meaning that the car will start & run as normal without a transponder chip in the key! We have hundreds of ECU's in stock - please call to see if we have an ECU for your vehicle - if we don't have a compatible unit in stock we offer an ECU cloning service if you can supply your own donor unit, ECU cloning & Immobiliser removal starts at 50+vat Please call for further information on how we can help with your requirements

 If you have a faulty ECU on a VW group Petrol or diesel from 2008 onward and are looking to replace it with a secondhand ECU you may have experienced problems with cloning - these EDC17 / MEV17 ECU's cannot be cloned in a traditional manner using standard programming equipment due to the fact they have encypted data in an 'OTP' (One time programmable) area. We have the solution! We can re-encrypt the data and program a donor unit to your vehicle needing nothing more than the original unit & donor unit sent to us, we also offer a file encryption service for ECU programming companies wanting to do this work themselves - Please contact us for further details on how we can help you to replace your VW group EDC / MEV17 ECU.

VW Group Airbag Crash data removal

 We can remove crash data from most airbag control units fitted to VW group vehicles. Crash data needs to be removed from SRS control units after a car has had collision and a safety feature has been activated such as seat belt pre-tensioners, airbags, fuel cut-off systems etc. This usually appears as the airbag warning light being illuminated and fails to extinguish when garages try to clear fault codes with a standard diagnostic scanner. Simply remove your airbag control unit, bring it to us for stripping and re-programming and usually it will be ready for collection within 24 hours. Crash data removal starts from 40+vat - please call for more info
