    Hi guys. When I bought my b6 s4 the cluster language was in German and airbag light comes in after set time. Scan also says module incorrect vin.
    After looking around have come across the software in the cluster goes bad. Known problem. Some say you can re program it through vcds. Anyone any experience with this?

    cheers. Shawn

    {Scan also says module incorrect vin} do scan seys incorrect vin in Airbag ecu?
    If yes you can adapt airbag ecu

    might be best to go through vag com with another similar s4
    that way you should get the correct regional settings

    mine lost it settings once and i had to mess with vag com and copy another to get it correct

    I have full VCDS and can do you a fault code scan, but i'm not too clued up on coding/adaptation.

    Maybe if you can get me a walk-through guide, i can do it for you.
