Component Security in Megamos 48 key


The modern immobilizers of the VAG-group vehicles have such conception as “Component Security” (CS). The CS is an array of 7 bytes length. Its role in a vehicle is to forbid a mixing of electronic units from different cars. In terms of the immobilizer the CS is a “password” that used in couple of the Motor Unit (ECU) and the immobilizer.


The protection scheme includes 3 components that share the CS, they are: ECU



The protection scheme allows the engine to start only in case when the CS is identical in all the three components.


Key and CS

The CS is a part of the Crypto Key and fills its upper area Word9-Word6.


ECU and CS

ECU uses the CS as a password. More modern ECUs contain only 6 bytes of the CS. In this case the CS should be extracted from another devices, for example it may be a dashboard.


The vehicle dashboard usually has a role of an immobilizer. The IMMO always contains all the 7 bytes of the CS.


The Tango key programming tool “Write Component Security 7 Bytes” (Megamos 48 window) helps you to put the CS manually into a transponder.


Example of ECU BOSCH Motronic M7:
