The folks in the Touareg forum have created a very useful post that contains controller scan reports of different Touareg trucks with different equipment configurations. This compilation of controller lists is very useful to those of us who are trying to figure out how to add features or modify certain behaviors of our vehicles. So, I thought it would be useful to have a similar list of controller scans in one post for the Phaeton.
If you have access to a VAG-COM diagnostic scan tool - or, if you can print the results of a VAS 5051 or 5052 scan to an Adobe Acrobat PDF, rather than a paper printer - please post the scan here, and describe briefly what kind of vehicle the scan came from.
If you are doing this with a VAG-COM, please use the "Control Module Finder" button in the upper left of the VAG-COM start screen, rather than doing an "Auto-Scan". The difference is significant, the Control Module Finder will return a far more complete list of controllers than the Auto-Scan will. Just be aware that it takes about half an hour to do a Control Module Finder scan, for this reason, it is best to leave your engine running when you do this, to avoid communications errors caused by a drop in voltage from the vehicle power supply battery during the scan. After you have done the scan, copy the results to a blank text file (or Microsoft Word file), and either post the results here, or email them to me and I will post them here for you.
A very important advantage of using the 'Control Module Finder' to do the scan that you will post here is that you don't have to worry about editing out all the horizontal dashed lines, fault codes, and other stuff like that. The 'Control Module Finder' scans only report on the controllers, their software version, and their coding. Fault codes are not polled, and the results of the scan are not formatted or paginated.

- This will take about 30 minutes to complete. It's best to have the engine running during this process.
