Default VW Polo DIY: Upgrading the BCM (Body Control Module)

We swapped the stock BCM of the Polo GT with an advanced model last weekend. It was relatively easier than I had thought and pretty much straightforward. As always, I have documented the procedure here. If you plan to retrofit cruise control in your car, you might have to replace the BCM. Read on to find out.

BCM/CECM:

VW Polo DIY: Upgrading the BCM (Body Control Module)-img_1219.jpg

CECM - Central Electronics Control Module

BCM - Body Control Module

The terms CECM/BCM are used interchangeably and they essentially mean the same component. The BCM is an electronic control unit that monitors and controls several functions in the car such as the interior and exterior lighting, the central locking and anti-theft system, interfacing with the vehicleís instrument cluster, HVAC system, rear-view mirrors, wipers etc. The BCM communicates with the carís other control modules through the CAN bus.

The BCM gets its input from the several sensors and variable resistors mounted onboard the car. For instance, the rain sensor will sense the droplets on the windshield and will close the windows and the sunroof automatically, and will turn on the wipers if the BCM has been programmed to do so. Or if it gets dark, the light sensor will sense the intensity of light falling on it and will turn on the headlamps automatically. Another classic example is speed sensitive door locks - if the speed of the car exceeds 15 kmph, the doors auto-lock. All these functions are controlled by the BCM.

Location of the BCM:

On the VW/Skoda cars, the BCM is located behind the dashboard above the pedals:

Stock BCM installed in the car:

There are several ways to find out the stock BCM:

a. Physical verification of the unit at the location mentioned above.

OR

b. Use a VCDS cable and click on the Central Electronics module:

The number highlighted above indicates the BCM part number.

OR

Run an Autoscan using VCDS and the report would mention this:

Part No SW: 6R0 937 087 T HW: 6R0 937 087
Component: BCM PQ25 H+4 H40 0432

Coding: 3AB82BBF08A10000003800003C2B14900000414F6004000020 0000000000
Shop #: WSC 12345 123 12345

Need of upgrading the stock BCM:

There are BCMs which provide a basic set of functions (e.g. central locking, fog lights etc.) and those that have advanced features (e.g. cruise control, static cornering lights, OEM bi-xenon projector lights etc.)

From Ross Tech's website, for the Polo 6R this is how it is:
  • Basis+ Part Numbers: ***-937-084-***

  • Medium+ Part Numbers: ***-937-085-***
    Supported Features (like Basis+ and additionally): Central Locking, Anti-Theft-System, Outside Mirror Heating, Seat Heating

  • Medium++ Part Numbers: ***-937-086-***
    Supported Features (like Medium+ and additionally): Remote Control

  • High+ Part Numbers: ***-937-087-***
    Supported Features (like Medium++ and additionally): Cruise Control System (CCS), Anti-Theft-System LIN-Databus (for Alarm Horn)

  • Reku (Recuperation) Part Numbers: ***-937-088-***
    Supported Features (like High+ and additionally): Start/Stop System (with Recuperation)

  • Licht (Lighting) Part Numbers: ***-937-089-***
    Supported Features (like High+ and additionally): Lighting Functions (LED DRL, Bi-Xenon etc.)

  • Licht/Reku (Lighting/Recuperation) ## Part Numbers: ***-937-090-***
    Supported Features (like High+ and additionally): Lighting Functions (LED DRL, Bi-Xenon etc.), Start/Stop System (with Recuperation)

As suggested by Ross Tech, only BCMs ending in 087 and above supports cruise control. Then again, during my research I found one 087 module which does not support cruise control:

VW Polo DIY: Upgrading the BCM (Body Control Module)-087-f.png
(Image Source: drive2.ru forums)

And whyís that? For cruise control support, the 4 pins highlighted above are required.

I am primarily doing this upgrade for 2 reasons:
  1. Cruise control support (the stock BCM is a 086 H model which does not support CC).

  2. Backlighting for the Mk7 steering wheel buttons (the stock BCM has the older firmware which does not provide backlighting for the newer steerings).

The newer Highline and GT models now roll out with the High+ BCM with the most recent firmwares so these owners need not do this upgrade.

Parts Required:
  • A highline BCM - 6R0 937 087 _.

    Note the underscore after the part number above - I have intentionally left it blank since the last letter signifies the carrier frequency for the keyfob radio:

    • BCMs with 434 MHz radio carrier frequency ends with the letters B, D, F, H, K, M, P, R, T. Pick up one of these if you are looking to upgrade. These BCMs are used in India, EU, South Africa and Russia.

      As a matter of fact, refer your keyfob. The radio frequency is indicated:

      Name:  Key.PNG
Views: 19530
Size:  343.3 KB

    • BCMs with 315 MHz radio carrier frequency ends with the letters A, C, E, G, J, L, N. These are used in Mexico. Avoid these units!

    You can also pick up a used BCM as long as it is in working condition. If the BCM is being bought for cruise control support, ensure that the 4 pins are visible on the socket B as indicated in this pic.

Tools Required:
  1. Ring spanner (10-11) - for unscrewing/fastening the nut on the battery.

  2. VCDS cable and laptop with the latest VCDS version installed - for adapting the new BCM.

  3. Torch - to highlight the BCM area. This area is completely dark and based on my experience with using the smartphoneís LED flash, I suggest getting a torch and taping it to one of the pedals.

Misc. things Required:
  1. Masking tape - to attach the torch to one of the pedals.

  2. Newspaper - to cover the exposed negative terminal of the battery.

Procedure:

The procedure is pretty straightforward and simple.

  1. First and the most important step - connect the VCDS cable and copy-paste the long coding from the 09-Central Electronics module > Coding - 07 to a notepad file.

    Name:  sBCM LONG CODE.PNG
Views: 19243
Size:  39.5 KB

    Take screenshots of all the 29 Bytes under the Long Coding Helper.

    Use the Snipping Tool and use the New Window Snip option to quickly select the window for which the screenshot has to be taken:

Views: 19006
Size:  21.5 KB

    This way, you will know what options were individually enabled and disabled when you adapt the new BCM to the car.

  2. Next up, go to 19-CAN Gateway module > Coding - 07 and copy-paste the long coding to the notepad file.

    Click on Installation List and take the screenshots of the options that are ticked:

    Name:  CAN Gateway 1.PNG

    Name:  CAN Gateway 3.PNG
Views: 18818
Size:  65.0 KB

    Important: These options will vary from car to car! Please do not take this as a reference for your car!

    These have to be transferred to the new BCM after doing the physical swap.

  3. Pop up the hood and use the ring spannerís 10-end to unscrew the negative terminal of the battery. Use a plastic cover or newspaper to temporarily insulate the exposed terminal so it doesnít touch the body of the car:

    VW Polo DIY: Upgrading the BCM (Body Control Module)-img_1224.jpg
    (With 100 km of daily driving, not much can be done to the cleanliness of the engine bay!)

    Wait for a while and press the horn pad or use the stalks to remove any residual charge just to be on the safer side.

  4. Take out the driver side floor mat and move the seat to the AFT as much as possible to make room in the footwell. Attach a torch to the pedal to highlight the area above:

    VW Polo DIY: Upgrading the BCM (Body Control Module)-img_1238.jpg

    I didn't do this step and used the smartphone's LED flash. It was a pain as I had to use both the hands at one point.

  5. While keeping the head near the pedals, flex the body in such a way you are able to see the BCM above:

    VW Polo DIY: Upgrading the BCM (Body Control Module)-img_1231.jpg

  6. Remove the 2 73-pin connectors plugged to the BCM - press on the tab so the lock comes out and rotate the locking tab so it unplugs itself from the slot.

    VW Polo DIY: Upgrading the BCM (Body Control Module)-img_12371.png

    There is no need to physically pull the plug out of the slot.

  7. Remove the BCM off the slot - pry open the 2 locks at the bottom of the BCM on either side as shown below:

    VW Polo DIY: Upgrading the BCM (Body Control Module)-img_12372.png
    (Apologies for using the same pic twice!)

    This might take a while but please be careful when you are doing this and donít break your nails. I almost did:

    VW Polo DIY: Upgrading the BCM (Body Control Module)-img_1233.jpg

  8. Once the BCM is out, insert the new BCM in the slot and replug the 2 connectors. Reconnect the negative terminal of the battery.

  9. Plug the VCDS cable to the laptop and start the program. Do the below steps in the order they are specified:

    1. Disable the factory mode of the BCM - if the BCM is new, it is probably shipped in the factory mode (mine was). To disable it, go to 09-Central Electronics module > Adaptation - 10. In the drop down menu, there will be an option - Factory Mode. If the Stored Value indicates 1, enter the New value as 0, click on Test, Save and Done, Go Back. If the Stored Value indicates 0, proceed to the next step.

    2. Go to 19-CAN Gateway module > Coding - 07 and copy-paste the long coding from the notepad file in the blank New coding field.

      Click on Installation List, refer to the screenshots that were taken and select only those options that were selected in the Installation List from the previous BCMís CAN Gateway. Unselect those that were not selected in the stock BCM.

    3. Go to 09-Central Electronics module > Coding - 07 and copy-paste the long coding from the notepad file in the blank New coding field below.

      Name:  BCM LONG CODE.png
Views: 19764
Size:  39.3 KB

      Click on Do It! and it will pop up a window indicating Coding Accepted. Click on OK. The new BCM has now been configured as per the stock BCM.

    4. Lastly, the most important step - adapting the keyfob(s). A new BCM requires the keyfob to be registered with it. Go to 09-Central Electronics module > Adaptation - 10. Select Remote Control Adaptation.

      Name:  rc.PNG
Views: 18272
Size:  34.3 KB

      Under channel "01", the Stored value field would read as 0 by default. In the New value field, enter 1 (if your car has one keyfob, 2 if there are two keyfobs), press Test and then press the unlock button on the keyfob(s). You have 15 seconds to complete this step. If the keyfob has been registered, you will get an acknowledgement as the indicators flash. If it did not work, repeat the steps and it would. We got this in one shot.

      Once the keyfob is adapted with the new BCM, check the locking/unlocking of the car.

    5. Do an Autoscan under VCDS and clear the errors.

Result:

I was able to successfully swap the BCM on my car this way. The Autoscan threw an error for the front parking lights as indicated below:

And these pins are designated as:

T73A 40 - Output signal on lamps, front right position lamp

T73A 41 - Output signal on lamps, front left position lamp

I tried removing the errors by disabling individual bits under VCDS but the errors wouldnít go. Thereís a workaround available which I shall be sharing here once I get it done. But this isnít a deal breaker as it does not hamper the carís day-to-day usage.

Shopping Experience:

The search for a new BCM was on since the last year and I had been hunting various online sources. Luckily, I found this unit from a dealer based in Russia and it was listed on eBay Germany (dealer ID: car_electronics, name: Konstantin Lunev). Contacted the seller and he was extremely helpful with my queries. After the deal was finalized, I made the payment of 155 Euros over PayPal directly and he promptly shipped it on the day he had promised to, packing it in a compact box with plenty of bubble wraps. It was delivered in less than 14 days, zero customs duties charged (thank you India Post!).

You sir, are NUTS. And I say it with a lot of admiration.

I would not be one bit surprised Gannu if in the coming months, you replace the 1.6 TDi with 1.8 TSi Engine on your GT bro!!

Probably even VW themselves may be following your thread and for all we know, may well be quite flabbergasted with the kind of mods you have been performing and providing the detailed reports on the forum

Seriously bro, after looking at this engine bay I gotta ask you this man:

How has your GT maintained the electronic composure

I mean, I ensure to clean my car inside out and have till date added absolutely zilch to any electrical systems, have run less than half Kms, used it only 2-3 days of >60kms per day,..yet my car is sitting idle for over 2 weeks for EGR issue
One of the most notorious cause for this may just be the dust in air/fuel.

I guess the clue is in going all 'Ga-ga' with modification and runabouts. I will be adapting your style of ownership bro, once my GT is back home.

Its really nice to own a polo for the fact that you can really customise your car using the VCDS tool and the easily available parts due to its international presence. Anyone know where I can get the BCM for the new Honda City so that I can have cruise control in my Amaze?

Thanks Gannu for this wonderful DIY. Really amazing.
Now, how do you use the new BCM to its fullest capacity ?

I mean, will you be taking this thread forward to include DIY for light/rain Sensors and to include available additional features?
Truly you would be driving a new car altogether, if you plan something on these lines.

Also please let us know if Toyota cars BCMs are available in the market.

Certainly but there are folks who are looking to install cruise control in their cars and this would be the first step. And with this guide, I donít want them to look anywhere else for help.

Well, for now Iíll be installing cruise control in the car. In the meantime, let me figure out what are the other features this BCM offers over the older medium-end version.

Thereís an image I had found which explains the features in the German language:

And here's Google Translate German to English in case someone's interested to translate the above terms.

I wanted to install the Jettaís auto-dimming IRVM with the rain/light sensor but the windshield was once replaced due to a crack before and I dropped the plan. Itís an easy retrofit but every time the windshield is replaced, the sensor unit along with the mirror mount has to be replaced as it is glued to the windshield permanently. Opted for an aftermarked auto-dimming mirror instead.

No clue about that really. Iíll let other members and Toyota owners to comment on that aspect.

Talking Re: Volkswagen Vento : Test Drive & Review

Hi Gannu, i for one is also keen on getting cruise control retrofit for my Vento TDI. I have few doubts regarding BCM swap and CC installation.

1. How easy is BCM swap if done as DIY ?

2. Will it affect warranty, if discovered by A.S.S guys ?
3. Can i get one from the same vendor from whom you sourced it?
4. Your comments about getting CC fitted at VAGTUNE,COCHIN - Is it worth for the 8000 INR ?

Thanks in advance

P.S: I have zero knowledge about automobile electricals.

Firstly, do check if you already have a Highline BCM in place. Today, the Highline Polo and Vento rolls out with Highline BCMs from the factory.

I can't really answer that. The service center here was willing to do the upgrade for me at Rs. 29000 but I sourced it for less than half that price. This isn't an aftermarket product but an OEM one used in VW/Skoda cars elsewhere but the service center will always have the final say in the event of a warranty replacement so best to check with them.

Absolutely. Which is why I have given his eBay ID and name in the thread.

Only Rs. 8000? Please reconfirm. A cruise control retrofit for Rs. 8k sounds too good to be true. I got the stalks and wiring for 6500 Rs. odd. There is some work involves other than the parts.

My BCM ends with 086 K. So it's definitely not highline. I am thinking of sourcing a BCM from the same vendor you got from and then get it fitted by VW A.S.S if I am unable to do so myself.
I inferred the part price from VAGTUNE website and not sure of the labour charges they would put down for it. I am hoping the A.S.S guys could help me with it too. (Fingers crossed).

Hi Gannu, I bought the same BCM from the same supplier after reading your thread. Did you ever manage to fix the issue with the park lamps?

Have the same problem so would love to know if you found a solution.

There's another issue I've got as well, mine is a 2011 April Polo 1.6 with the face-lift steering installed. The buttons on the left (for the board computer) don't work at all. Everything else, including the illumination and phone button, work fine. Any advice on what I could do to get them to work?

I have the following installed:
- 2015 BCM (Same as yours)
- Facelift MFSW
- RCD510 (Delphi) + 9W2
- OPS (Rear)

Yes, I have. And sorry, I meant buttons on the right. All the audio and telephone controls are working.

Can you scan the car and check if you get any implausible signal or any other missing terminal type errors for the steering wheel or central electrics apart from the parking lights. My cruise control system, which I recently installed didn't function as the wires on the stalks were lose and the scan gave me an implausible signal from CCS error! Cheers

There are no errors other than the 2 for the park lamps. Everything else seems fine. AFAIK, all the buttons on the wheel work through a single LIN Bus line. So if one of them works, they all should. From a hardware perspective at least.
