Hey Guys, Just picked up a MK6 GTI Wheel with the air bag, it has no buttons...Do I need to pick up the slipring C revision (1K0 959 653) to make the horn work? Or will it work properly with just the switch? Thanks!
Bump???

picked up this little beauty from a guy on another forum i use couldnt wait to get it fitted but once on my horn wont work
i have since replaced it with my old wheel and horn works fine and light goes off after a short drive
my slipring is version 1k0 959 653c

im no expert but looking at the airbag i think it maybe the wrong one for this wheel as i have nowhere to plug in the small black plug which i think works the horn
can this be rewired ?
any help would be appreciated







thanks

You need the new slip ring with the c revision. Your slip ring needs to not have that C at the end. What year is your car? Trying to figure out if I will need the new slip ring on an 07 rabbit.

Hi there the black plug is for when the 12 buttons are fitted its for the mini control unit in steering wheel, so i would say that is possibly not the original air bag or the wiring connector at the back has just been swapped over...what you need to get from vw is just standard airbag wiring loom it has nothing to do with the slip ring....you need 5k0 971 584, this is the yellow plug to airbag with out the black plug.....the horn may not work as you do not have annoyingly a new steering wheel control module which i believe you need for the mk5 even for just the horn to work

if you were going to do the swap anyway why not just get the full multi function wheel??? i don't get it!

Don't get all fired up at me for pointing out your "ability" to make threads very frustrating to read!

As for the horn not working, it has nothing to do with the control module, but rather the airbag wiring loom. The horn is simply an on-off push button, so as long as it's wired up to the control module with the correct loom it will work.

There are only 2 air bag looms one with multi function button connector one with out (i could post a pic from ETKA if you want but will probably get moaned at for using pics again) and as both are not working with the old control modules in the mk5 perhaps you could actually add what you need to do to get the horn to work as apparently its quite easy....

once again you have nothing constructive to add

In that case, I'd check the pin outs in the large yellow connector to see if they match. It could be they changed them from the Mk.V to the Mk.VI. I would check mine, but don't have the connector on hand right now.

Like I said, the horn is just a large push button integrated into the steering wheel airbag.

Hi guys, new here on the board. Doing a MK6 GTI steering wheel swap in a MK5 GTI and got problems with the airbag, since MK5 is dual stage airbag and MK6 is single stage airbag. What did you do to get the waring light away and the error code?

Thanks for your help.

Help??

I need help with my install as well, I read this whole thread and other threads too and I still have not fix my SW issues.

I drive a MK5 R32 with DSG and MFSW buttons and BK control module and single stock CC.

I changed the BK control module o the CH module With the MK6 SW, MFSWO Buttons as well as the Airbag too.

For some reason toning works on the SW : MF buttons, Horn, DSG paddles, and lots of codes and faults on the dash.

I also have NOT changed any thing on my VagCom coding yet either cuz I don't know what to change or activate on the VagCom coding????

Any help would be great!!!
