    How can i get into the MFI/MFD menu to access convenience settings ? On the cluster i can see the Bluetooth icon and Bluetooth works but i can't see the phone menu. I tried using the buttons on the windshield wiper rocker switch but that also does not invoke the phone or the settings menu. I...

    On my 2007 2.0T Wagon when I try to program the drivers seat it always reverts back to previous settings. I can't seem to clear the settings. Any thoughts?

    I have a 2003 Passat AWM. I am in the middle of cleaning up after a water infiltration and as part of tracking it down I removed the plastic shell the ECU sits in to clean the crud around and under it (turns out there was none under it because of a foam seal). Anyway there are two nuts that hold...

    Car specs: 2004 Passat 1.8t (AWM, B5) Can anyone recommend a specific scanner device (or part #) that will allow me perform readiness checks and transfer ECM/Immo II settings? The options on eBay and internet are seemingly endless and vary greatly in price - it's tough to know what will work...

    I'm wondering whether engine settings ARE, definitely, 100% of the time, lost when the battery is disconnected? I've disconnected battery to chase down some electrical gremlins. Got that done. Read Bentley about this and it suggests engine settings MAY be lost upon disconnecting battery. I read...

    Hi, I updated my central electrics module code since I installed the DDM hid kit but wasn't sure it was correct. I tried to set DRL(daytime running lights) intensity to 100% and to enable Xenon-shutter installed (Bi-xenon). Based on many guides on the forums (vwvortex, passatworld), I needed...

    Eyeballing Edmunds on my car features, and I see a section for "Memorized settings". Now, I certainly know about the seat and mirror settings, but there's also "mirror settings" notated there. What "settings" are there for the mirror? My car happens to have Homelink with the auto dimming...

    The remote unlock / lock function on my key fob intermittently looses it's settings. It happens about once a month. When I manually unlock / lock the door using the actual key, it resets the remote function for about another month. I've verfied that the batteries in the key are good. Is this a...

    I just had an alignment done and got the printout so I was wondering what the typical P-World specs were. I read where some of you guys fine tune the steering feel etc through alignment so I'd like to compare notes. I wouldn't mind a little better turn-in feel. But of course don't want to...

    I have gotten around to playing with the settings on the MFD. My owner's manual is not original to my vehicle and doesn't list the same features I have available on mine. I think the book is from an 06 and I have an 07. I am wondering what ATA Confirm. and Comfort Indic. are for. These two...

    ...mainly the tilting mirror in reverse. I don't know why but sometimes it doesn't tip down all the way I had it set to, it just stops early. Anyone else get that problem? It's a cool feature, but it's annoying when it gets confused and doesn't lower all the way. Is it possible to clear the...

    Hi all, According to the manual, when I select a specific category I should see the channels within that category as options using the buttons along the side. But, I see the same random channels as options regardless of what category I select. Is there a setting or something I need to change?

    Hi, I have just purchased a 55 plate B6 Passat Estate SE 1.9TDI, but i cannot figure out how to get the menu up to change all the settings. I put the key in to ignition (not engine on) and held down the rocker switch both upwards and downwards and nothing happened it just flicked through the...

    So the other day I took the passat to the shop to get the timing belt done, and the shop offered to install the brakes for no extra labor cost. (i know the 2 are not related.) Anyways one of the things that they did in addition to changing the brakes is "reset" the e-brake. Before this the...
