Help with new Golf
« on: 20 July 2021, 18:49 »
Hello all, just come back to a Golf after a year gap. Just bought a mk7 GTi CS, but would seem it has some hidden issues!!  So after some assistance please. Looks like the ACC module is incorrect and i suspect from another car. The original loom wire to the ACC is 6 wires, but a badly connected 4 wire(leaving 2 wires loose) has been connected to the original loom to connect to the incorrect ACC module?

Of course ACC inoperative.

Looking to purchase back an ACC module and find the correct,6 wire loom connector.

What module part number would a 2016 Golf GTi CS have?

I would image i need it aligning, but thats another day after sourcing the parts.

Thanks.

I did yes.   It didn’t look like this the wire. It was all neat & tidy. I didn’t check cruise though on inspection.

From memory a brand new acc unit is about £800, that's what I was told when mine got mullered by a pheasant. This may have been for the sensor, fitting and calibration as the actual sensor doesn't appear that expensive. And yes the surround is missing to which is coppers to buy in comparison.

Is your CS Manual or DSG?

If it's DSG then I'd recommend letting Volkswagen fix it, given it's a safety feature as well as works with the ACC. Although if you're local to VW Retrofit in Redditch they'd be able to help you out.

It is a CS edition 40 and have Alex at Reditch doing some bits soon, so was going to get him to re-calibrate. But the physical purchase of the equipment, i was going to do.

Thx.
