    Hi Does anyone have a list of the pin outs for a 2011 1.6 TDI ECU? I have tried searching for one and am struggling to find one.

    The Problem I am having is I was driving home from work and the dashboard gave me a load of errors. 1st was driver assist button faulty, then Brakes then ESP. I got the car home and the next morning when I came to start it. It gave me all the same errors and it would start for a second or 2 then cut out and wouldn't start again. I had someone come out and plug the car into a Diagnostic reader and it wouldn't communicate to the ECU. They diagnosed the ECU as faulty. I sent the ECU away to be tested they said it had water inside and was beyond repair and I should get an ECU kit from EBAY. I got and ECU kit which was the same as mine I changed the ECU, Ignition, Clocks and Control module fired up the car and got exactly the same error.
    I have looked online and the next potential problem is the wiring. So I am looking for the pin outs so I can do some basic continuity tests. Sorry for the waffle but I am starting to lose the will with this car.

    Hope someone can help

    So you have fitted a matched set components from a dead car, engine ECU, dash pod but what do you mean by ignition and control module? Have these had the cars VIN entered to disable component protection? You can't work on modern CAN BUS cars in the way you could say a Golf 4, it doesn't work. Without your own diagnostic system (not just a code reader) you are not going to solve this even by throwing every possible part at it, you could solve the issue but not know simply because you can't see and clear codes in the CAN BUS controller.
