LOL that may be even better than driving to radioshack for a 10-Ohm resistor :) I must have a ton of old headphone sets in the drawer.
You have a Radioshack still? Down here all we have are Fry's :)

Haha- that was my post on too. Sorry I never linked to it here.

Re: How to Disconnect the e-motor noise

Hi just did mine today it’s a US spec 2015 SEL I disabled it without cutting of unplugging any thing except a fuse

Step one remove the small bin on the left lower side of the steering wheel to get access to the fuse for the outside sound generator fuse position 48 should be a 7.5 amp fuse fo the Engine sound generator control module j943 this Will trigger a fault warning on the instrument cluster.

Step two with the VCDS go into the can gateway module adress 19 find the CO actuator for exterior noise from the list of installed module and un click it

Step 3 go next to the instrument cluster module adress 17 and in to coding 07 then click on the long coding helper and click the up arrow until you see 12 there you un click the internal noise sound actuator then get out and save and erase all fault codes in all modules in the full scan section.

Hey, for the rest of us, what the heck is that? Sounds like a code reader that a technician would use. That's not going to fly for most of us. So the steps 2 & 3 seem to be for someone well aware of how to modify the software of the Egolf.

I was recently curious about the car's fuses in hopes of resetting the infotainment system but saw the user manual state you must go to dealer for a list of your model's fuses. And in doing this I happened to notice that fuse 48 for a sound generator.

Somehow, this car doesn't make any noise, luckily, nor any faults displayed.

Yes, I got lucky, maybe from previous 1 owner. But just thought I'd point out how most drivers don't have access to the VCDS. They probably will have to use the 10ohm method.
