As part of the Audi security strategy some modules built in the VAG vehicles implement “Component Protection”. This is a mechanism dedicated to prevent exchange of modules between different vehicles without central authorization from the VAG online database (dealer visit), also referred to as the GeKo system. 


Audi & VW Specialists  


We are able to remove and program component protection for all Audi and Volkswagen Cars.


If you have purchased a used part for an Audi or Vw more than likely it will not work in your car as it will have component protection on it unless its programmed using specialist equipment. This includes Audi MMI, Vw Distance control, Active Cruise Control, Airbag Modules, DSG Gearboxes, Ecu, Instrument Cluster, Ezs, Kessy,Steering Lock, Airbag Module, HVAC Control, MMI Control Head, Comfort/Convenience Module, CD Changer/MP3, Power Seat Memory and many other parts.


At Cartech UK we have invested highly in this equipment and are able to carry out programming and coding online.

 Radar Sat NAV ACC Activations 

 Such modules installed in another vehicle activate the “Component Protection Active” DTC and are with restricted functionality in that vehicle. This service removes the “Component Protection Active” fault code and allows the 2nd hand/donor module to work in the new vehicle with its full functionality.  The only other alternative is a dealer visit that either limits or restricts the use and programming of donor parts with Component Protection.  Dealers will most likely try to sell you a new/virign part + Component Protection Programming fee.   



Component Protection system was first implemented in 2003+ A8 and carries over to 2005+ C6 A6 and 2009 A4/A5/Q5.  Furthermore, there are two types of Component Protection – Generation 1 and Generation 2.  Component protection Generation 1 was mostly implemented in the 2003+ A8 2003+ vehicles, while the A6/Q7/Allroad 2005+ is using component Protection Generation 2 for most of the modules, and only few of the modules are using Component Protection Generation 1.
