Default 2016 R new JB4 install issues. - 09-09-2021, 03:03 AM

New 2016 Golf R (UK) owner just installed a JB4 a couple days ago.
Initially I had a 431A code and dash lit up like a Christmas tree, did a search on here and and found that a drive should clear it, which it did.
So this morning I thought I would do a quick firmware update on it.
Hasn't gone well, again dash lit up like a Christmas tree and only fires up briefly.
I'm not with the car until later this evening but if anyone has insight that would be great.
Also if I can just bypass it to get it going that would be spot on also.

Well car is running.
Obviously it's had long enough to think about it.
Unable to connect to the JB4 via the Bluetooth.
Handshake timing out.
I have checked the Bluetooth module connections and also I can see the JB4 on my phone settings.

It sounds like something went wrong with the firmware update. You can get the VW master chip we sell here to get it up and running: https://burgertuning.com/collections...-jb4-2580-chip
Best to email me at george@burgertuning.com for install instructions of the chip.

Cheers for all the replies guys.
I went out to the car this morning and pulled the JB4 off.
I'm writing this unit off as a bad one.
I'm now rethinking what I'm going to do with the car.
May just leave the mapping alone on it now.
Lesson learned on dodgy second hand stuff.

The chip needed is $25 so well worth swapping it out to bring the JB4 back to life.
