      Trying to Swap ECU's and have the PIN / SKC obtained from my Vag Tacho. I need the WSC but this car is a 2002 and is from the east coast. I dont know what dealer it came from. Any way to obtain the WSC from the dealer or a scan? I have a registered Ross tech for the Swap!

      You don't need the WSC if you got the PIN via VAGtacho.

      It says you do Via the Ross tech website. On step 6 of this link. Are you able to somehow bypass this step?

      That page is outdated and refers to the 7-digit SKC which hasn't been available for years. The updated page can be found here...

      What's the likelihood that the VAG-Tacho in CA is a clone?
      I would suspect high.

      I'm also surprised this was assisted with, being no auto-scan was posted.

      Oh I know why.

      Wizard trickery?

      So much for continuity.

      Awesome. I don't know why I ended up jumping to the old process. Now I just need to figure out my radio code I guess. Thanks a bunch..

      That's easy.

      Since we are answering questions without scans posted today.

      Wizard holiday I guess.

      Write down your 14 digit Z# on your physical radio or get from your scan with VCDS supported 0x56 ID screen or sometimes in blocks.

      Request at your local dealer with valid ID and VIN #. Most do it for free, some charge a fee.

      Don't forget to check the service book or trunk area, maybe you get lucky with a sloppy PDI lottery ticket containing the pin.
