I finally got around to installing my 6WB MFID Instrument Cluster. :D

Since mine was a brand new virgin Kombi, no EEPROM work was necessary to blank the donor car's mileage and VIN. Install was a breeze, and Coding was just a matter of adding 6WB to the VO, changing VO Production date to 1211, and VO Coding DKombi and HU_CIC.

Since my car does not have ECO Pro, I get just the Comfort and Sport mode displays.

Upgrading from the basic Kombi to either 6WA or 6WB is a dramatic improvement, and worth every penny. If I already had 6WA though, I personally would stick with it rather than invest in 6WB.

Hi Shawn, I order new 6wb claser and can I codin my self? With e-sys? Or have any instructions, best regards
Yes, you can code it with E-Sys. If it is new and not used, you can do just as I wrote in my original post, which is add 6WB to the VO, change VO Production date to 1211, and VO Code DKombi and HU_CIC.

Hi shawn,
I also installed the 6WB MFID Instrument Cluster.
But after FA coding, there is no cafd in DKOMBI at the SVT area.
So, I can not code DKOMBI module...

All I have done is as follows.
1) Connect E-Sys and Read FA from car at the Coding Function in Expert mode.
2) Save FA and Edit FA
3) Add 6WB to SALAPA and calculate FP with no error.
4) Save FA
5) Select Expert mode, VCM function and select FA.xml file at the Vehcle Order.
6) Select the VCM Master tab and click the Write FA FP button.
7) Select Coding function and read FA and Activate FA and Read SVT.

My cluster get error it should be updated when ignition on.
The Tachometer and speedometer does not respond when engine on.

I am very glad if you give me some advice...

I coded the FA according to the instruction from this post.

But I got an message like this which was not described at this instruction and I clicked yes.

I wonder this is why my DKOMBI has no cafd...

You need to try and inject CAFD into Kombi ECU:

Connect => Read FA (VO) => Activate FA (VO) => Read SVT (VCM) => Left-Click on DKombi => Click on "Detect CAF for SWE" => Select the CAFD from latest I-Level => Select OK => Right-Click on DKombi (the ECU itself not the underlying CAFD) => Select CODE.

And may I ask one more question just for my study...
After VO Code of DKOMBI, the SVT shows ECUs(28,1), the "1" font color is red.
And DKOMBI module font color is black while others are blue.
Please let me know this means something error?
Thank you very much in advance.

Your 6WB looks good.

This is normal. The different colors depict the different states of your actual ECU firmware compared to the reference firmware (PSdZData version)

The SVTs recorded in red letters indicate the reference system state of an ECU. The blue ones indicate the actual state of the ECU. Black entries indicate SVTs with identical reference and actual state.
