This MQB Reverse Camera Control Module came to us after the customer, who purchased it from eBay, was unable to code it due to both firmware and paramaterisation issues.

VAG Car Coding made a custom harness, connected to a test vehicle, resolved the issues and then performed the needed Coding and Adaptations so its ready to be plugged in and used.

Experiencing the same issue with your MQB car project? We can help
