    Over the christmas and new year break i plan on doing the cruise and Dis mod, i have most of the parts now and will be adding the washer level sensor, having read lots of threads on here and various other forums i have most of the information i need,the install should be straight forward but the coding is a different story, i will be using a different sccm and understand that i will have to get the new sccm to learn the vehicle vin, this is where i require more information.Does anyone have a "how to " of what actually needs coding or any links to a write up and also the connecting of the washer sensor, i read that the other end of the wire from pin 1 in the instrument cluster goes to a plug in the passenger footwell?, does anyone know if this is indeed correct or can i just earth one side of the sensor and then run the other side directly to pin 1?Any help with this gratefully recieved as always,Matt

    To make the SCSM “learn” the car’s VIN (using Vag-Com): Step 1. Go into [Adaptation – 10] Step 2. Select channel 81 Step 3. Select New Value = 00111 Step 4. Hit enter on your keyboard, or click [Save] Step 5. Select [Done, Go Back]

    Hi, Eventually did mine this week cruise and DIS all working well apart from the dreaded washer bottle low warning.

    Someone did say somewhere that there is a block connector in the passenger footwell that you can earth out a pin I am sure they said pin 9 on the black connector so I tried this today and I still got the warning :-(

    Can anyone tell me the colour of the wire at the passenger footwell a pic would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Si

    its the one furthest from the drivers door

    you can do it from the footwell but its tight and fiddly I would remove the clocks if you can its only 2 screws althought they are atwat to get back in

    pull the clocks out with the left hand side out more as this si the side where the plug is

    I will finally be doing the cruise/ dis on tuesday, as i will be changing my sccm i have a couple of questions.
    If it goes tits up will i still be able to drive the car although the dash will be lit up like blackpool! And should i take a note of any of the original codes?
    Thanks as always
    Matt
