This post show you guide on how to use ODIS-Engineering to do module flashing/update for Volkswagen DSG/TCM module.

Note:Try it at your own risk,please be aware flashing any module is risky, especially doing a DSG module this guide is not designed to spoon feed anyone and requires a certain amount of computer and diagnostic knowledge to achieve.


If your part number is different or you are not confident that you have the correct file to flash STOP!

First step you need to check what version of your DSG software running,here you can check it by VCDS log.


Run your ODIS-Engineering software on your PC,once program has loaded go into Admin and uncheck “Active Filtering using EXPECTED-IDENTS” and “Activation Version Control”


Now go back to diagnostic and ensure VW36X is selected and proceed to Diagnostic Entrance


Select the DSG module then double click 042 – Flash


One the next screen ensure the DSG module is still selected, then hit Local File Flash and select the file from your flashdata to flash


On the enxt screen just make sure you have loaded the correct file and hit Start Flashing, there will be a few dialogs pop up and I don’t have screen shots of these but if you have got this far it will be easy enough for you to understand clicks ok or next


After about 6-8 minutes you will be greeting with a message saying would you like to clear all DTC’s I personally prefer to click no at this point and do that side of it in VCDS but if you want to clear them it is not an issue.
