  1. Hi,

    I have a VW T5 2010 with BCM model 7H0937086D and wondered whether it is possible to retrofit cruise control. Do I need to change the BCM?



  2. I have a VW T5 2013 with BCM model 7H0937086K and wondered whether it is possible to retrofit cruise control. Do I need to change the BCM? + the option of changing the MFD.
    Can you please give me some costs?

    • Hi, yes, your BCM would need to be replaced for 087 one. for Pricing Please email us directly

  3. Hi I have just fit a mfsw to my t5 and was wanting it connected up and have a mfd as well to see mpg and stuff but my bcm ends in 86B would the bcm need changing also

  4. My controller has the number 7h0937049ae and I would let me install a cruise. goes with the unit.

    • Hi, to me it looks like you have a T5 manufactured 2004-2009, in your model, the BCM would be fine if you have four pins in the empty slot marked “F”, if there is no pins, you will need new a BCM for cruise control.

  5. Hi my Bcm ends 87k. Am I right in thinking I can have cruise and mfsw fitted. Will it be possible to fit one of the gti mfsw with cruise on the wheel or do I need to have cruise on a separate stalk.
    Regards Mike.

    • good morning
      Yes the 087 BCM would be fine for cruise control. Cruise would not work from the new mk7/ T6 steering wheel, it has to be on the stalk.


  6. Hi I. Have fitted some MFSW switches to my T5 2012 and run the extra wiring as required I have a BCM no 7H0937087H can you tell me if I need to change my BCM please thanks Steve

  7. hi
    I have a BCM from a 2005 Caravelle that has cruise control, will it also support MFSW.The BCM Code is 7H0 937 049 Q.


    • Good morning

      Lee if you thinking about having Mk6 golf mfsw fitted to your T5, to our knowledge this can not be done. Mk6 wheel communicates with a BCM with LIN-Bus, old BCM would not have it.


  8. Hi,
    I have an 2008 T5 and I would like to install new BCM. I would like to install the mk7 Golf MFSW with cruise control in the steering wheel. Which BCM you would suggest to be installed and does it need something else also?



  9. Hi,
    Wonder if you could help. I have a 2005 California with cruise control @ Mfsw – factory fitted. My BCM was replaced in 2014 and now has 7H0937049AE – it is now faulty. Looking at parts 2005 models can take 049L, 049Q, 049AA or 049AE. Do all these support these features( cruise and Mfsw ) ?

    • Good afternoon

      Im sorry I can not advice on part numbers and compatibility. I would advice to contact your local VW and order the BCM based on the chassis number.


  10. Hi I have a 2014 T5.1 Highline with cruse control and mfsw and am looking to fit the flat bottom mk7 golf wheel with cruse buttons on wheel rather than on the stalk is this posible and would I need to change the slip ring regards Carl.

    • Good morning

      Mk7 wheel with a cruise control on it, would not work with T5 Im afraid…

  14. I have a 2013 Highline with a BCM number of 7h0937087k which has developed issues with flickering dash lights and the parking sensors beeping in time with the indicators when I turn left to name a few. If I need a new BCM will it be a straight swap if I get one with the same number or will it have to be coded to my van?

    Cheers David
