    Thread: Comfort Control Module Location

    1. 03-30-2005 08:04 PM #1
      My 2001 Jetta GL is experiencing the symptoms of having a bad comfort control module (non-working interior lights, door locks, trunk release, etc.). My question is, where is the CCM located in 2001 Jettas? And how do I get to it. I am hoping I can locate it on my own to retrieve the part number, then I figure I can order one online, because going through the dealership, I'll be set back about 400 bucks just to get the damn part, not even counting installation. ANY help is greatly appreciated.

      hey i just did this when i bought my car. i have a 00 golf but its prolly the same location. if you take out the plastic pieces right below the steering wheel then take off the big metal plate behind the plastic its located near the top of the dash. its bolted on w/2 screws and has like 2 wiring harnesses attaced to it. Before you go 2 the dealer check out ebay i got one for 20 bucks. Also did you check fuse #13 or 14?? If you installed any electronics it could mess that up 2.

      Thank you very much. I plan on tackling this project within the next few days, so I'll check back once I'm done and let you know how it went. Also, I had fuse 14 checked out when I got the car, and its not that, so unfortunately, I think its the CCM for sure. Thanks again for your input

      I've got the same issue and need to order the CCM part and install it. I've procrastinated it enough and need to go ahead an do it. I's be interested to know how it goes. please let me know if you have any thing to watch out for.
      thanks,
      Ash.

      If you don't already know your part number, or don't have access to a scan tool to obtain it that way, you'll need to get to the part yourself so you can get the part number, because when replacing them, they have to match. The CCM is located behind lower dash area. To get to it, you'll need to remove the 2 black panels underneath the steering wheel, and also the black side panel that covers the fuses (they are knotched together, and I almost broke one of the pieces by not realizing that). After you remove those, there is a metal plate with about 5 screws in it, so remove that, then you should see the box screwed to a metal harness. Just remove 1 or 2 screws and you can pull the unit out. When installing the unit, however, it is not as simple as just putting it in and being done. If you have remote keys, you will need to have them programmed, which pretty much needs to be done by a VW dealership, unless you know of some place that has the special system they use. (Having them program it may even be necessary if you don't have remote keys, but I'm not absolutely positive). Hopefully this helps you, and good luck.

      Bringing this one back...
      Is it true that Keys need to be reprogramed? I thought the ECU and cluster took care of all that?

    8. 07-25-2005 10:29 AM #8
      You can reprogram your keys yourself. The dealership will charge you $50 to do it, but the instructions are in the owner manual.
      Good luck!

      You sure about this??

    10. 08-22-2005 03:20 PM #10
      Absolutely. When you buy a new key it comes with the directions on how to program it straight from the owners manual. Good luck!

      I need to do the same thing - so please post follow up info (I will do the same!).
      My 2001 Jetta GLS rolls down all the windows whenever you unlock the car, and when you unlock the car to get out.
      I found a new OEM comfort control module for $100.

      Hi, where did you find the CCM? I might need one for my Passat.
      thanks.

    13. 05-03-2006 02:20 PM #13
      I need to know where to find a cheaper comfort control module. The dealer wants like $260. And thats whith a 20% discount.

      could a bad CCM effect only one door?
      I have no functions on my passenger door (no lights, no window, no lock etc)

      Yes, I have that same question. How do you know when the CCM is defective? What are the symptoms?

    16. 10-27-2006 07:47 AM #16
      Defective CCM can be any number of symptoms, too many too list, however, if it's only one door that seems affected (does not lock or unlock) but everything else works as it should, I can tell you it's NOT the CCM.
      Before ripping anything appart, try removing your battery cables, touching the positive and negative cables together for a few seconds (this should discharge any remaining current in the system) and reconnecting the battery, this sometimes clears "hickups" encountered in the CCM.
      A couple of tests you can perform beyond that are - try the lock/unlock button on the driver's door and passenger door as well as the remote control, if the door is not responding, yet the other door(s) are working fine, it is one of 2 possibilities, a dead door lock mechanism or a disconnected wiring harness at the door lock mech., either way, you will have to remove the door panel (see FAQ's for instructions) to get to the mechanism for trouble shooting.
      Once you have the door panel off, you can run some tests on the harness using a voltmeter to verify that hte problem is with the locking mechanism.
      1999 to 2001 model years have issues with the 6 solder points where the harness connector mounts to the circuit board at the mechanism, sometimes, all you have to do is re-solder those joints - also see faq's for the proceedure on repairing the mechanism.
      Scarpyards and ebay will have modules at relatively good prices.

      Does anyone know for sure whether this is the same location for a 2004 Jetta TDI? I don't want to do a bunch of tearing out and not find it. I see that most of the questions are about older ones.
      Thanks,
      Steve

      Yes it is the same. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I found out it is under the dash on the 2004 and not under the seat, but I also found out that, contrary to outward appearances, the dome light fuse blew and all works when it was replaced. It was hard to believe that one fuse took out the door locks, windows, trunk, and dome light. Oh well,live and learn. Thanks for all the great posts all over this forum which helped me to solve this.

      Who said it was under the seat?

      Just a brain fade. Old age does that. I was on another thread I searched regarding the module and it said it was just under the carpet under the front of the seat. When I read this thread again I realized I had responded to the wrong one.
      thanks again,
      Steve
