Nope, that's the rear speaker amplifier under the driver's side floor. You want the passenger side.
You are correct David, I have tried both keys (before and after both batteries replaced) and they don't work with any method offered.So the CCCU's part number is 8ZO 837 231P - There are old threads from other members long ago quoting that exact part number when their cars were just a few years old, so I would say it's quite likely to be the correct / original one for the car.
I saw in another thread on this issue that you could go to Timpsons and get them to check your keys were actually sending a signal, but the fact that neither of them work even with new batteries (you tried that right?) suggests a problem elsewhere. I think a scan is the next step.
Yes I have all electric windows, funny old thing is the windows all work individually but the drivers side only works for the drivers side, another job I was going to look into at some point.Mark, does your car have all four electric windows? If so, then Steve's Q unit would need you to code them in with VCDS. I'm now suspecting that's why you have the P unit.
Note that all single-letter CCCU's contain a compromised Motorola chip which is why there are now frequent failures on that generation of CCCU. Failure is not unknown on the later two-letter ones either but nowhere near as often. I guess, let's see what David's VCDS says about it but the remotes not working could be a sign of this one starting to go.
That's also controlled by the CCCU. It's starting to look like it's on the way out.Yes I have all electric windows, funny old thing is the windows all work individually but the drivers side only works for the drivers side, another job I was going to look into at some point.
Graham, surely the car won't lock at all if the Q CCCU is installed without recoding it for four electric windows. @timmus can you comment please?
CCCUs aren’t plug and play. Unless you get lucky and unknowingly buy one that coincidentally happens to be correctly coded for your car, some software work will always be needed.

Hello fellow A2OC members, As part of my ever-expanding list of A2 services, I offer a CCCU replacement service. Earlier A2s in particular suffer from an unreliable Central Convenience Control Unit (CCCU). A faulty CCCU can cause a variety of bizarre symptoms affecting the interior lights...www.a2oc.net
