My parents are considering a new Corolla. With the new cheaper Jetta out now, I recommended that they go check it out. They liked it, but said they can't live without cruise control. Is there any way to add this?
Up here in the Canadian North The base model is called the Trendline. (2.0)
One model up is the Trendline+ it adds...
60/40 split folding rear seat
6-way manual front seats
That is all I want, except cruise...
I would have no problem adding it myself, but I would like to know what would be involved. Obviously it would mean changing the stalk, probably adding some missing wires to a harness somewhere etc... What else? and what would need to be done to the ECU? (via Vag com?)
A complete DIY would be great. If someone has done this, I'd love to hear from you.
I then checked with the only other VW dealer in town, and their service department spent some time looking into it, and told me straight up that they can't find any information on how it could be done.
I would love to hear from someone who has done it. I'm assuming all that it would need (besides the new arm) is a re-program of the steering wheel control module and/or engine control module via VAG COM or VCDS (or dealer software) and possibly a rewire between the new arm and the steering wheel control module. As it is a 2.0, I would think it would be a fairly straight forward process.
I do not have VAG COM or VCDS, but would consider buying it if this makes it work, as I've read it can also enable window roll-up with lock and window roll-down with unlock from the remote, much like the KWS-100 that I have used on my MK4.
[QUOTE=JohnIBarr01;71754653]GAH. VI ≠ IV. Stupid n00bs.
My bad. My old Jetta is a MK IV, my new one is a MK VI, and I don't speak Roman
and by KWS100 I meant the KVW100 Window Roll Up/Down Flash Load Module available from ECS Tuning (http://www.ecstuning.com) or in Canada from ziggi tuning (http://ziggituning.com)
I have this on my old MK IV, and would love to have this function on my new MK VI
For those who do not know what the KVW100 does, when you press lock on the remote, the doors lock and all the windows (and sunroof if equipped) close. Holding unlock opens the windows.
... but back on topic...
Has anybody added or tried to add cruise to a base Jetta VI yet ?
For Cruise Control: I can double check what's required, but I assume the steering wheel control module, stalk, wiring and coding of the ECU. You will be better off comparing the VCDS scans from mk6 Jettas with and without CC.
If you could double check that would be greatly appreciated...
and part numbers for the stalk (arm) and the steering wheel control module (if needed).
Also if wires need to be added/moved, from where to where (pin/wire color), and of course what settings to be changed with VAG COM or VCDS.
I'd love to put together a DIY (if there is not already one) for this mod, as I have found many DIY's here very helpful/useful when I made my numerous mods to my MK IV Jetta GLS.
...and if I can get enough information to do this, anyone who helped would get a thanks in the DIY
Looks like this is going nowhere...
I looked up all the info I could and here is what I've got.
On the hardware end you would have to swap the turn signal part of the cluster (maybe possible) or just swap it for the complete switch assembly with the correct leaver. Also need to add 5 wires to the harness for the turner leaver. On my car it currently has 7 of the 12 wires needed per ELSA. The problem is that 4 of those wires go to the vehicle system control module (VSCM) which is the 73 pin plug near the inside fuse panel. However those 5 wires are mapped for the highline (73b) version of the module. And the fifth wire goes to the ECM (under the hood). The other problem is that I think my car (Jetta S) has the lowline VSCM (73a). I do not know how to verify which I have tho. If the 4 wires are able to be plugged into the lowline VSCM the mapping isn't the same (pins 44,45,46,47) because pin 44 on 73a (the lowline) is supposedly mapped to the "Ignition Starter Switch Supply (15) Input Signal" and pin 45 on 73a is supposedly mapped to the "Parking Lamp Switch Input Signal" and the other pis (46,47) are not assigned. Perhaps it is still possible to install it but the pins are mapped differently? I have the ELSA diagrams if anyone cares to give some input or wants to see the diagrams just let me know. This may not be a lost cause.
On a side note:
Not sure if this is normal but when I saw peoples pics of their ABS modules from the ESP install threads, I noticed that mine, a presumebly lower lever ABS since I have a Jetta S, had more wires in the ABS than that of someone who had a higher level car SE/TDI. Any thoughts?
