It probably a real rookie question but since I am new to modding, could anyone fill me in on VAGcom, that is what do I need to do this. I have a controls expert I can call on but primarily i want to set my Euro Passat up to auto lock doors when moving.TIA :bow: :bow:

You need to get hold of a ODBII diagnostics cable, I got mine from this place... http://www.skpang.co.uk/obdii_hardware.htm

Once you have got that go on to Ross Tech's web site (www.ross-tech.com) and download the free version of vag-com.

Check out item 46 on this page http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/cars/passatb5.html, this shows you how to do the auto (un)locking thing. I have done it on my Passat and I think it's great apart from when people are too eager to get out when you stop and they are all like "I can't get out"!

Nice to see another Euro Passat owner around

Dan quick question what year is your Passat? I asked at my local VW 'stealer' just out of curiosity and they weren't sure if my 2001 could be done. Expert off today so have to go back to check.

Mine is a 2003, can't see why you shouldn't be able to change yours. Although, do note the difference in Ross-Tech's passat page the difference in where you change it between cars with electric rear windows and crank windows.
