    Hello all. Had a bit of an accident in my '08 Passat B6 2.0tdi 16v DSG. While driving a short distance with a long heavy object in the back, I had to brake suddenly (retard drove out of driveway right in front of me) it slid forward and smacked into the gear shifter. It threw up the inevitable...

    I am trying to make a bench test to run VCDS software and test a Passat instrument cluster while it is out of the car. I used the pinout specs below and the cluster powers up just fine but when I try to run the Instruments test I get an error message saying No Response From Controller. Any...

    I can confirm that it will work with a B5.5 Passat (it should work with any OBD2 port). I ordered 1, but the seller sent 2 and they told me to just keep the second. I don't have any need for the extra one, so I am selling it. I use the other one whenever I need to read or clear CEL codes (with...

    Anyone close to winston salem? I just installed a Malone stage II in my 05 passat tdi. So far it's awesome! Its amazing how much power you can get from 2 liters. I remember the old days when I had an 81 rabbit diesel. Great little car, but not fun to drive. If anyone needs to do data...

    Up for sale is my Ross-Tech KEY-USB cable. This is the same cable as the newer KII-USB as far as models that it supports and is a legit Ross Tech cable that allows for full use of their software. The cable acts as a dongle, and does not require software activation like older cables. Simply...

    So I have one key fob and one transponder only key for my Passat. Some time ago the the remote portion came unpaired from the car, but it seemed like it would work on and off, before it quit working entirely. I've since replaced the battery in the remote, and the light on the remote blinks...

    Hey guys, just ordered my Vagcom interface for MKV Jetta which should also be compatible with my friends B5 Passat. Im a little dissapointed to learn that the remote windows feature can't be done with VCDS for the B5's. Is this true? What cool features can be done with vagcom on the B5s?
  16. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Firstly, I'd like to say that if I could afford a legit Vag-com, I'd have one but unfortunately, at 16, with no job, that's just not going to happen. Hopefully some day I'll have one but for now, I want to get a cheap one just to tinker with. Has anyone had any success with a cheap eBay cable...

    So here's where I'm at, I've moved my turn signals up to the previous marker lights (next to low beam) and moved the marker lights down to the old turn signals. The plan is to replace the amber (previous) turn signal lens's with clear ones and put a white LED behind it. I want this to be my DRL...

    I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried moving the turn signals from where they are on the bumper UP to the corner lights next to the low beam...I've seen that bulb size would be difficult to match on the lower housing for an amber LED bulb but I want to turn the lower (current turn signal)...
