    Hi,

    I've just received a retrofit kit from Kufatec. The hardware has been successfully installed. Now the question about coding.

    Instructions from Kufatec say that two modules need to be coded:
    - Module 16 (Steering), byte 2, bit 2 to get checked/activated. Done.
    - Module 1 (Engine), byte 6, bit 0 to get checked/activated. It comes actually activated from the factory (original reading of byte 6 is 00000001).

    Either the instructions are outdated or the engine module is too new (it's number 03L-906-018-JP), would need to find out which other bit/byte needs to be activated in the Engine module.

    If only module 16 coded and no coding/changes in module 1, module 1 throughs an error and engine electronics lamp comes flashing on on the dash.

    Just in case, the car is 2014 year model A4 2.0 tdi Avant .

    While I'm waiting for advice from Kufatec and trying to find an official VCDS around to see if it provides clear instructions for which bit/byte needs activation, your ideas would be greatly appreciated! :)

    The available version of VCDS (surely not original and not updated) does not recognize the Engine module and does not provide much suggestions (in fact none at all).... Therefore I am here... :)

    I don't think the Engine 01 was coded. I rather believe that instructions from Kufatec are getting out of date and it's not bit 0 to be changed, but another one most probably ....

    Thank you!

    And here is the solution (thanks to a friend with original VCDS)!

    For face-lift A4 model one needs to activate/check:
    - Module 16 (Steering) -- byte 2, bit 2
    - Module 1 (Engine) -- byte 5, bit 5
