    So my OEM antenna finally corroded through and snapped. I know the threading for the OnStar antenna is larger than for the non-OnStar Antenna. Does anyone have any recommendations for a new one? I'm wanting to move away from the whip style and want more of a stubby one. Thanks!

    So now that I got my W8 I was thinking about swiping the OnStar stuff out of my 2004 GLX before I sell it and swap it into the W8. Is it worth messing around and modding the OnStar system these days? The other question is, besides the antenna base, extra cable to antenna base and the button...

    Fellow passat owners, I've got a 2004 B5.5 passat with Onstar. Never seen that before. Contacted VW.com chat and they advised me that US marketed vehicles didn't come with Onstar for that year. My VIN didn't show up in there registry and it was suggested I had a EURO marketed Passat. Has anyone...

    This buy is for 2004-2005 B5.5 owners that have the factory installed analog OnStar option that was declared end of life in 2008 and no upgrade path was provided. This mod does not reincarnate your OnStar services, it uses the OnStar peripherals (cabling and mic) and the phone source capability...

    SUCCESS! SUCCESS! SUCCESS! The defunct analog OnStar in my 2004 GLX torments me no more. I am very psyched to announce success in my efforts to engineer a VW compatible adaptation of the GM-only Bluestar module, a bluetooth 2.1 compatible interface engineered to make use of the OnStar...

    If you have a dead OnStar and are not interested in upgrading it to BlueStar unit I am presently organizing group buy for, I would like to buy your controller board located behind the buttons in your overhead console. Mine was lost in transit during testing and development of BlueStar VW...

    just bought a 2004 passat glx. it has onstar built in. i was playing with it today and was wondering if it is possible to connect my cell phone to this system since it has voice commands and all that. My friend has a ford edge with my touch and it picks up his phone when he sits in the car and...

    I have 04 GLX wagon and no manual. Would it be possible to use existing OnStar antenna for XM/Sirius. How about the existing wiring from the OnStar module integrated with Sirius/XM? If someone could post the wiring diagrams, I may be able to figure it out. Did the 04's come with the ability to...

    This may belong in the electronics forum, but I'm posting here because of the interior aesthetics aspect and wider readership ;) So I've read a number of threads and didn't really see much (one promisig thread asking for a used OnStar control console...but it died). I'm looking for something to...

    Well i came back from vacation and had about 1 1/2 feet of snow on my car. So i started to push it off with a car brush, well not really thinking about it i worked to the back of the car and pushed my antenna right off as well. So it snapped my stubby clean off. I thought it was the mast that...

    I have a B5.5 with the useless factory Onstar. The whip antenna is falling apart so I went to VW to buy a new one. Little did I know the whip antenna on my car has a much larger thread than the normal base. I spend some quality time with the parts guy who finally figures out that, at some...

    Hi, Passat newbie here... (I've had a few VWs/Audis in the past... Pulled the DRL relay in the dealer's lot before taking my car home. :) ) Anyways, I have a 04 V6 4motion, which ofcourse has the now useless OnStar junk installed. I want to pull out atleast the controls that are taking up the...

    I noticed that the light associated with the On-Star either illuminates green or red. The observation I made is that right before I replaced my battery the light was red and didn't change to green at all. Once the battery went dead I bought a new one and the light is now green and has not...
