GOLF 5 GTI (02E 300 043 C).

Note: It might work with other TCU numbers also as the ones we have tested and confirmed, if you are having problems with a specific number, or want to report a succesfully DSG control, please contact us.


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/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 (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.
