    After a very long day of replacing my washer reservoir, my 05 started bucking about a mile from home and then died. No CEL and no restart. Had it towed home. Checked fuel pressure - was ok. Having done the bad MAF dance before, I pulled the connector to the MAF and it started right up in...
  4. Will there be more RNS-510 NA Map updates?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Does anyone know if there are anymore updates for the RNS510 planned in North America? The last one was in 2016 and I am reluctant to buy it given another one might (should) come. If not it's pretty disappointing given I bought my wife's 2015 in April 2016 which means it was obsolete 1 month...

    We had the MAP sensor replaced and the dealer "updated" some software. Now, the cruise will not work at all. The dash does not indicate the cruise is on when the switch is moved to the ON position. I noticed another thread where someone had a similar issue after a s/w update for the...
