VCDS fix for the climatronic at 72F / 22C - working

Sun Apr 16, 2017 1:42 pm

First post for me on this forum but I guess a lot of people will appreciate this.

I have tested quite a lot with VCDS and can now confirm that this fix works and let the car remember the last setting.

- choose module 8 (auto HVAC)
- Go to adaptions
- choose "cut-in behaviour"
- select active AND check soft reset
- press ok

Now it gets interesting. Most likely you will receive an error with a message like "function not supported in active session". Press ok. The module will soft reset itself (climatronic goes black for 3 seconds).

- select active again (don't exit the module)
- press ok
- the controller should accept the request!

Sing hallelujah and forget messing with the AC in the future!

I have been greatly enjoying this forum for the last few weeks... finally posting! :D

Did not feel like dealing with the dealer to fix this most annoying feature, so had been searching everywhere for this tweak... was fired up to find something I could try.

Implemented it 3 days ago, and it has been working perfectly!

Thank you, ReneM!!!

Just took delivery of my 2018 e-Golf here in Canada and was looking forward to trying this fix out. When I try this I get an error saying something like "value out of range". When I do it again, I get a different error saying "the value was rejected by the module/controller and likely won't work" (or something to that effect). The result is the value won't change from in-active to active. Anyone been able to change this behavior on a newer e-Golf?

Ha! I think they need some more time with the training materials.

I just had this done (2017 US SEL+DAP). The service manager seemed completely aware of the issue and there was no charge. Mind you, this is a dealer in a state where the e-Golf isn’t even sold, underscoring the variable quality of dealer service departments.

The receipt says “Turned on adaptation in climate control for channel 5 (AC startup).” When I get a chance I’ll do a post sevice VCDS scan to see exactly what changed.

So, thank you University Volkswagen in Seattle WA.
