How to install Burteq memory module

Installation of the memory module is very straightforward. Typically, our customers complete it in just 5 minutes, with no special tools.

This tutorial applies to the following vehicles:

  • Octavia IV (2019-2024)
  • Seat Leon IV (2020-2024)
  • VW Golf VIII (2020-2024)
  • Cupra Formentor (2020-2024)
  • Audi A3 8Y (2020-2024)

Please note, this tutorial is applicable only for automatic transmisison (DSG) cars. Manual transmission cars have a clutch pedal that obstructs access, making installation much more difficult. We are actively working on a wiring harness that can be put into a different place, allowing installation on manual cars as well. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter so you don't miss it.

  8. Plug the memory module into the plug-and-play wiring harness (if it isn't already) and secure it in a place where it won't obstruct anything.
  9. Make sure no part of the wiring harness and memory module touches any moving parts of the vehicle, such as the steering column.
  10. Ensure no part of the wiring harness and memory module touches any sharp edges where long-term exposure could cause damage. Follow applicable standards during installation.
  11. Reconnect the battery.
  12. Perform a test drive following the instructions below.

Test Drive

After reconnecting the battery and turning on the ignition, you will see numerous errors on the dashboard. Don't worry, that's just because the battery was disconnected previously. All those errors will disappear after driving approximately 100 meters. Once they disappear, restart the engine. Until then, the car will remain in a sort of limp mode, where many functions won't work, even after the dashboard errors have cleared. For example, attempting to disable Start-Stop will show an "Error: Start-Stop" message. Also note that you will have to select you driving profile again.

In summary, this is what to do after module installation:

  1. Start the engine
  2. Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock
  3. Drive until all the errors disappear (usually less than 100 meters). Be very careful - many of the car functions will not work.
  4. Restart the engine
  5. Done!

After completing these series of step, your car will be ready as usual and you will have all the memory functions, enjoy!
