TUTORIAL: how to acces hidden menu on VW Golf Mk5, Jetta in 3 steps

If you want to find out what VW Golf Mk5 climatronic menu is hiding, you have to follow this 3 simple steps from the video below:

Before you start the engine, make sure that the gear shift is in the neutral position.

STEP 1: turn ignition on

STEP 2: turn the air conditioner on pushing the OFF button

STEP 3: press on the ECON button or AC (on other models) and the up-arrow button in the same time

To navigate through hidden menu use only the first two switches. On the left screen will be displayed a specific channel and on the right side the required values​​.To return to the original menu , press the ECON button (or AC on other models).
