My clocks have packed up. Completely  fryed. I have a second hand one already.

I have also had my original keys pinched.

Locksmith has said he can make a key to access vehicle but may need to get a code from original clocks to make everything work as it communicates with ecu. Simply putting new clocks with new immobiliser and prigramming keys to new clock wont work.

Im comfused

Can someone please help clarify what needs to be done.

you dont need the original clocks. How difficult it is depends on the IMMO version your running. What year is your car?

Step one, get a couple of keys made to fit the car. You can get some used keys and fit new blades. Programming the remotes is easy enough, but you need two keys to do it, hence make sure you get two blades made!

Step two, code new key transponders to IMMO in the new cluster. To do this, you need VagTacho or similar to extract the security code from the cluster. Immo1/2 i think can re-use old transponders, whereas immo3 requires a new blank transponder instead. Transponders are on ebay.

Step three, pair cluster and ECU.

If your immo 1 or 2 (before 2000my with digital clock) thats a simple job of just selecting an option in VCDS and job done.
If your IMMO 3, you need the security code for the ECU. Vagtacho can get that from some ECU's, but if it fails you can get it using ME7_95040 tool

Easy then, no need for the ECU pin.

If your new cluster is pre-facelift, rather than early-facelift-with-analog-clock, you'll need to cut a wire behind the clocks or the alarm will go off every time you lock the car.

Just answered my own question

Out of interest can the cluster adaptation be done with VCDS lite?

adaption can, but you need the SKC, which requires vagtacho.

Vagtacho looks for a specific cable, you cant just use the vagtacho software with the standard blue vcds leads.
