MK7 GTI VAG-COM Coding for Remote Roll Down Windows

October 15, 2014

Please note when performing this coding on your vehicle the pinch protection will not be active when rolling up your windows via remote.

If you don’t have a VCDS or VAG COM cable you can use this OBDeleven which is a less expensive alternative

  1. jeremiah

    hey i tried doing this on a customers car and when i got to the steps envolving activation of number (7) access control funk komfort oeffnen and after that it said not supported and would not let me change to active so when i pull the car menu and the car head unit the options for the windows does not appear. am i missing something? any help would be awesome

  2. Ron Van Dusseldorp

    Will this coding procedure be the same for a MK5 GTI ?

  3. Ron Van Dusseldorp

    Thanks Paul, worked perfectly windows via remote “sweet”
    ” And on the 7th day god created VAGCOM.

  4. Andrew McMahon

    How do I get this to work on a 2016 golf sportwagen s? The security access code (31347) listed here does not work for this car.

    • Paul Barrett

      Im sorry we dont have any info on this for that model.

  5. Shawn

    Will this work on a MK7 Golf?

    • Paul Barrett

      We have not tested but we suspect it would be similar on a Golf

  6. Andrew McMahon

    Awesome work guys! Works as shown! Just had to download new rosstech software to get into menus on 16′ sportwagen. 1 question, is 1 touch lock and roll up not an option ( like on my mkiv)?? Kinda sucks to havev to hold it to roll them up

    • Ned Hodgson


      I have remote roll-up on my mkiv as well, but it required the installation of an aftermarket window controller. It is not a function I gained by reprogramming the ECU. You may have the same thing installed – if so, it’s wired into your driver’s side door. Mine is made by Alientech, but iirc they’re out of business.

      Pretty sure the method above is the only current option for MKVII drivers.

    I have a mk7 gti 2016 my car come with the settings in the system I put all windows and it won’t do it

  8. cedup

    works GREAT! Roof also opens with windows, in tilt mode, closes with windows perfect. Great for hot summer as you approach car, it’s vented when you arrive!

  9. Dave

    Greetings Paul,
    Since I don’t have access to a VAG-CON programmer, could I use the newly announced OBDeleven Pro Scan Tool to accomplish this programming? Can I program it via the individual steps you’ve listed here, or do I have to use credits in the OBDeleven app to run their one click programming macro for the windows mod?

      • Dave

        Thanks Paul, the OBDeleven worked perfectly with the VAGCON steps listed above. No app credit was needed.
        FWIW, on my 2 door 16 GTI SE with this keyfob remote mod, the sunroof closes with the windows and tilts up when the windows are opened.

        • Paul Barrett

          Thanks for the feedback. We appreciate it.

  10. John

    With the remote, is it possible to fully open the sunroof on a US 2016 GTI without the sunroof already tilted? Great site! Thanks.

  11. Elsido Pereyra

    I have a mk7 us spec..the adaptation Chanel are all in German and I’d # are different also noticed bag come software was old when this was published?

  12. Ryan Kim

    I just purchased obdeleven and followed this step for 2016 gti,
    But it just doesn’t work. Everything else like euro tail, refuel quantity, +10 etc work perfectly.
    After coding, I was trying to buy this coding from app and it says value not changed..
    what can I do from here?

    • Paul Barrett

      did you change the info in your infotainment screen as shown at the bottom of this?

    My ASC VW mechanic wasn’t able to get this to work with his VAG-COM? I’m in the US Tx. With a 2015 GTI S w/DCC and Sport Package?

    Need help


  14. Curt

    This worked perfectly using my OBDEleven on my 2016 MK7 R. No credits needed, great product.

  15. Mnflycaster

    Thanks! Worked on my 2017 golf sportwagen!
