To access the information follow the steps as shown on the image.

  1. Hold down the “AC” button and press the “Window Vent” button, release when the LED’s on both buttons start flashing alternatively.
  2. The left hand knob adjusts the Main Channel, the centre buttons (FAN) adjusts the Sub Channel.

    does this work with RNS510 (mark 6) as i could get the buttons to flash but when adjusting the left hand knob there are no numbers appearing for main channel and pressing the fan button also gives no numbers for sub channel

    Where did you buy that dash trim?

  • This is cool. To bad the Golf 6 in the United States doesn’t come with Climatronic and only Climatic.

    I have the Polo 6R (2010 model) which also has a climatronic. I tried what you say and I couldn’t get into Diagnostics mode. Maybe there’s a different approach? I need to know the oil temp as the dashboard doesn’t even have water temp!

    I installed the new climatronics (shown in the picture above), the AC starts automatically when the car starts at low, and then the compressor switches off by itself. also, when I put the Auto on, the the compressor works only for 20 seconds and then switch off again. I have to shut the AC off for at least 20 minutes before starting it again in order for the compressor to kicks in again.

    Does anyone have channel info for this? I have for example channel 12-7 in my Touran and it seems that channels are somehow different than in the lists currently in the web…

  • Michael

    +1 for channel info. Would love to know this for the mk6.

    tried it on my gti mk6 with RNS 510. 1st time it was displayed on the screen, played around abit but didnt understand the numbers so decided to press AC to quit. Now the normal display could not be shown when any of the bottons where pressed. tried again to enter mode by pressing AC and window vent led where flashing but no display on the screen. Please help what did i do wrong.

    I tried on my VW Vento 1.9 tdi (same display as golf VI) but after press both buttons (AC & ¨window vent¨) the climatronic display turned off. It doesnt show temp, fan, etc anymore and i dont know how to revert. Do you know how to revert?
    Thanks. Jorge
