I'm not sure if I'm not getting power or it's coding or it's not waking up the modules.

Most indy's will not be able to align the sensor.

VW Harness Connector Repinning

Huge thanks and applause to Nickco43 for doing this.

In the guide (E9X ACC Retrofit DIY v1.1.pdf) Nick mentioned having to take apart the connector for repinning. You do not have to take it apart if you get the connector I received. I don't know if Nick was missing the parts shared below.

The connector has a green slider mechanism that locks and exposes pins for extraction. It is super simple. There is a clip that needs to be pushed while sliding the whole piece to the left. When you're done just slide it back to the right.

[pictures attached]

My harness had pins 1(Ground), 2(PT-H), 3(PT-L), 4 (empty), 5-6 (pinned), 7(empty), and 8(Supply).

I simply moved the pin from 5 to 4 for the Wake-up signal. Since 6 isn't being used, I'm going to take it out for another use. Having the green slider mechanism made it a 2-minute job, really.

BTW, as Nick has warned, the ACC sensor module is very hard to attain at a reasonable price. I spent $400 on eBay(US), which I consider lucky, as most are way above that price. Also needed an LDM module because My car was from 2008. I just got the stalk interchangeable with e90 mentioned by another person. Hopefully, it will work. The other parts needed are super easy to source, however.

At the moment, I'm doing an AC compressor replacement so the ACC retrofit is getting done at the same time since I already have everything taken apart. I'm also putting in an M3 replica front bumper for e90. The bumper lower grill will be cut out with Dremel to fit the ACC sensor module.

Fingers crossed, it will all come together without too many issues. Will follow-up update...

Since I have the car all apart anyways for the idrive dash install, I'm doing this one too.

Be really careful with the little ribbon cables if you aren't buying a full combination cluster.

Fortunately this happened to the cruise control stalk that came with the car, not the ACC X6 one I'd ordered from spain...

I bought the X6 full combination cluster with lockspring that has heated steering wheel option (also retrofitting). I'm thinking it should be just a full swap and coding... any thoughts?

offtopic but x6 heated slip ring is not compatible with e9x heated wheels

yeah x6 ring has a different number of pins and different connector for the heated wheel. I used the ring from the same car that the heated wheel came off of (a wrecked e92 with a blown airbag and damaged combination switchset), the cruise stalk from the X6 combo switch, and the rest of the combo switchset from my e91, because it has rear wiper control that wasn't on either of the others.

You can use the X6 ring if you use an X6 wheel, which is what I would've done if I could've found one, the X6 sport wheel is very nice!
