Default PF03+ in 2015 Passat?

So I have a PF03+ which worked flawlessly in my 2014 Passat TDI.

Fortunately, I remembered to pull it before I traded it in on my 2015.

I updated it from 5.4 to 5.5 before installing it into the 2015, and it doesn’t quite work right. Boost shows in the negative and EGT’s just don’t read.

Now... I understand that the PF03 will not work in the MQB chassis cars. The Passat is not an MQB chassis, but the CVCA engine is used in the MQB cars.

Is this just something that needs to be updated or do I need to upgrade to the PF05?

I think you are SOL with the moduel you have, the NMS is a mix of Mk5 and Mk7 modules.

My only hope is the MQB module would work, but seeing its such a limited run config I can't imagine the company investing the time to fix it.

I also heard after the FIX the PID data is messed up but I haven't confirmed that.

Also forgot to mention that my Bluetooth screen no longer appears in my MFD and my car-net light no longer works.

I'm sure its all related.

Yeah one of the down sides of polar, they are over seas and deal with 10 time the platforms we have availbile here so we are a niche of a niche, can’t make a product to suit them all.

I wonder how P3 gauge would work on the ‘15NMS.

It seems AutPolar is interested in helping their customers.

They sent me a firmware to try and they are pretty quick about answering questions on the support ticket.

So we will see how this plays out. Hopefully we can get it working.

been stating they need new firmware for MQB for about a month, even though polar states its live ready to ship.

Fingers crossed.

A little more good news...

In the last 4 days, they have provided me with 3 different firmware levels.

The first was a patched version of 5.5 because they said my screen grab of the updater information looked really weird. But this one would not allow my MFD to access the module at all.

The second one allowed me to access the module, but locked it when I tried setting different parameters. It got stuck on "Identifying Available Parameters". They said something about a bad compilation.

The third one (so far) got everything working. I am able to access the module. I can change the different parameters. However, EGT readings are no longer available.

So I emailed them one more time thanking them for their help and asking if there is anything they can do to get EGT's back.
