DSG Control.

NOTE: Do NOT activate the MaxxECU Default V1.3 CAN output on the same bus as the DSG, cause it will interfere with the control operation and cause trans going to neutral and random strange issues.

NOTE: PDM20 uses the 0x50 CAN message ID for communication, which might be available on some Audi (equipped with airbag modules), do NOT use on the same bus!



DSG settings


gearbox type

Specifies the gearbox type.




shifter type

Specifies the shifter used.

OEM DSG shifter - Uses the DSG shifter that was found on the donor vehicle the gearbox came from.


paddle type

Specifies the paddles used.

OEM DSG paddles - Uses the OEM DSG paddles, including the CAN steering module.

MaxxECU digital inputs - Uses the digital input functions Transmission UP shift and Transmission DOWN shift to command an DSG up/down shift.


CAN emulation

Specifies the type of CAN emulation to be used.

No emulation (DSG donor vehicle CAN is present) - The DSG is fitted on a MED 9.1 vehicle where all CAN modules except the stock ECU is connected (ABS, kombi).

full emulation (ABS+KOMBI+COMFORT+AIRBAG+STEERING) (used as a standalone controller) - This is probably the mode you want, cause MaxxECU is transmitting ALL signals needed for the DSG to work without any kind of vehicle modules installed.

CUST emulation (XXX+KOMBI+COMFORT+AIRBAG+XXXXXXXX) (used as a standalone controller) - Same as above, except ABS and STEERING is expected to be present on the CAN.
