Volkswagen Tiguan Service and Repair Manual: Immobilizer

General Information

The fourth generation immobilizer on the Tiguan has an online connection and download capability. The essential component of the fourth generation immobilizer with download is a central database in which all anti-theft relevant data of the participating control modules are stored. It is not possible to adapt participating control modules to the immobilizer without an online connection to this database.

  • The immobilizer PIN cannot be requested by fax and the immobilizer cannot be enabled in advance.
  • All components participating on the immobilizer must be adapted online.
  • All vehicle keys (subsequently ordered keys as well) are already pre-coded to a specific vehicle from the factory and can only be adapted to this vehicle.
  • It is necessary to have the VIN to order replacement keys.
  • It is no longer possible to perform adaptation on components originating from other Volkswagen group brands.

Immobilizer components:

  • Anti-Theft Immobilizer Control Module -J362-.
  • Engine Control Module -J623-.
  • Ignition key.
