Has anyone found the byte to turn off the horn beep when you lock the car? Hadn't seen that mentioned yet. Thanks
Yes, that is available through VCDS, adaptation. Long coding helper. You can add it too, when you unlock, the horn sounds, and remove horn sounds by unchecking.

Has anyone been able to get this to work on a 2013? I am on VCDS current version 11.11. I have a different appearance than those here have described in VCDS and the rain features show up in the MFI but don't actually work.

I have read all related topics that I've been able to find. Any advice/experience w/ 2013 appreciated.

Just to clarify, you've gone into VCDS and checked the rain sensor enable as well as the rain closing check boxes? Once you do that the option will show up in the MFI. Check the MFI option, open the windows, lock the car with the fob, test the sensor with a spray bottle - turn signals should flash once and windows will close.

Very interesting. Mine does not have a sub menu for the RLS in vcds. Maybe I should post pics. It shows up in mfi after I make the changes. But, even when checked in the mfi it doesnt do either windows up or auto wipers. It does however stop working as intermittent on the first click of the wiper stalk.

I installed a set of LEDs for license plate before and it's throwing a code.
I just re-installed with a different set of LEDs with resistors built in but it's throwing an indicator warning.
How can I delete or erase code?
Is there anyway to permanently remove it?

Default Reduce intensity of the dashboard lights and the NAV unit

IPicked up my '13 TDI SEL Premium from Chris F. today. Got >41 Mpg at >toll road speeds over 485 miles. Night driving did point out one area that requires attention. Is there a VCDS adjustment that will reduce the intensity of the dash lights and NAV unit lower than the minimum setting, via the dash dimmer switch. The lowest setting is too bright for my tastes.

Thank you Wolfsburg de/Ross Tech for the help on my 13. To help others out, my 2013 SE does NOT have rain sensor, thus neither rain sensing feature works. Love my car, nonetheless. IT is an amazing machine, averaging 42 mpg city thus far, per MFI... still have 1/4 left on first tank. Great job on VW part with these passat's.

Thanks for everyone that contributed to this thread. I got my VAG-COM and did a lot of the mods listed here with no problems.

I did see in one of the modules where there was a check box if the car has a spoiler on it. What the heck would be the difference with that? My car does have a spoiler that I added after getting it so the box wasnt checked.

Might be for the Audis that had speed activated spoilers?
