  4. Add Sunvisor with Garage Door Opener (Homelink) to 2015 LE?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I have a 2015 Limited Edition, for which I traded my 2001.5 GLX 4Motion Wagon. One feature I really miss is Homelink, which can be used to control a garage door opener. I found the part online, but the question is: does the electrical hookup exist above the roof liner in the Limited Edition...

    Thank you for adding me. This website has been very helpful fixing the mommy wagon. I bought it cheap $1300 and have put about $1K in to it. I love Vag products, even tho some of the problems they have can be maddening. I hope to be able to add to the knowledge base of the forum to help others.
  6. EDL: What is required to add it?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi There I have a 1999 B5 manual FWD and appears to not have EDL. Would be nice to not spin the wheels so easily in the wet on take off. What is required to retrofit the EDL? Looks like I would need a new ABS module with the EDL included. What else?

  8. Trying to add OEM remote keyless feature to my 99 AEB. What do I need?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Good evening every one. I'd like to know how difficult it would be to add keyless / remote locking feature to my 98/99 AEB Passat. All Passats sold here untill 1999 did not have keyless remote feature, except for the V6s. I've checked that my CCM part number is 1J0 959 799 H and that it looks...

  12. Add iPhone (or USB) connectivity to RNS 310

    Mobile Electronics
    I have a 2010 Passat Highline with the RNS 310. I've only just got it, so it's possible I'm being blind, but pretty sure I'm right in saying that it doesn't have any of the MDI connector points either in the glovebox or the centre armrest. There's no CD changer, so I wanted to know if there's...

    Add an aux input to monsoon and still use cd changer. I recently installed a kenwood head unit to use with my subs, but I got tired of using one cd at a time, no steering wheel controls, and the monsoon hu just sounds better. So I thought, there must be a way to add an AUX line to my system...

    I am just about to finish detailing all the vehicles in my stable and when I got down to the last application of wax I noticed it was very watery, so much so I could wring the application pad out and it was damn near full of water. When I apply polishes and waxes I shake the hell out of them so...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I was driving my Passat a few weeks ago and came to a stop light. While sitting the CEL came on. It was a warm day (around 95) so I couldn't see any error messages on the display. I got home and read the codes using VCDS Light and got the above mentioned code. I cleared the code and continued...
