    I'd still read the SA. You can manually decode it. Non-coded options, such as sports wheel and other stuff are still represented in the GM and SA

    And even if that would be the case, and it reads the module, what about the fact there is no Daten file for it?

    I said I would still read the SA, I didn't say it would get you anywhere but it may well help with your idea to try the E38 unit

    I recalled video capturing my INPA "ID all modules" run from a while back. I did this as it shows the filenames of the .grp file it's part of (in EDIABAS\ECU). Because there are more modules that are in the car that can not be coded with NCS like DME, SMG and ABS module.

    What I found out is that what they all have in common is that their ID_COD_INDEX: is 0, all others are !0 and this number matches the coding index number of its respective file in de Daten folder.

    So when the PDC module is found, it also has a coding index of 0, which would also explain there is no daten file available for it. Which would confirm there is nothing to program.

    When copying the PDC_C01 and C03 files from E38 to E36, NCS Dummy will read them correctly (using the PDC files from E46 gives data that isn't even PDC related).

    And in the INPA ID run, the PDC module comes back as "D_0060: PDCE38".

    It sounds like no point even trying to add the E38 unit then
