DSG Shifter emulation

Scroll Prev Top Next More

Note: Do NOT enable the shifter emulation together with a wired OEM VAG shifter, that will be pretty confusing for the TCU, so dont do it...


1. Read EVERYTHING on how the VAG DSG control works, if you don't read or pay attention, it will not work as expected.



2. Assign all digital inputs found on the OEM shifter:

Note: Momentary switches is needed, above is an example with a CAN Keypad and the DSG UP shift.


Required digital inputs        

Transmission DOWN shift - Momentary.

Transmission UP shift - Momentary.

DCT/DSG Mode Switch - Momentary, switches between DRIVE, SPORT, MANUAL.

Transmission Neutral Switch - Momentary.

Transmission Reverse Switch - Momentary.

Transmission DRIVE switch - Momentary.

Transmission MANUAL switch - Momentary.

Transmission PARK switch - Momentary.


Note: All shift commands are commanded until any other input is triggered.


3. Verify to make sure all shifter status changes with the pressed buttons.

Note: All the above inputs must be assigned as digital inputs and verified to work before continuing.



4. Enable the Shifter emulation in DSG --> DSG Settings, shifter type.
