Towing Recognition Control Module -J345-, Retrofitting
Retrofitting a Towing Recognition Control Module -J345- approved by Volkswagen is possible, but it can pose problems due to the connection with the vehicle CAN data bus. The control module must then be coded in “Guided Fault Finding” using the → Vehicle diagnostic tester.
  Note
Installation of control module solutions that are available from third parties and are not approved by Volkswagen is not recommended. Installing such equipment voids the warranty. Generally, these are connected to the tail lamps and not integrated into the vehicle electrical system. This can result in a misdiagnosis from the lamp monitoring function or to malfunctions. Also, dimmed bulbs such as combined brake and tail lamps cannot be activated.
