if the CAN bus gateway installed in the car is incompatible with the radio installed, when the gateway sends the signal to the radio to cut power, it will not actually cut power hence resulting in a 'parasitic power draw'...

Isn't it easier (read cheaper) to buy aftermarket ?

It probably would be, but i want to have everything OEM. I don't want anything to be other than the matching red/blue color.

This is what I got my eye on: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_020CX50...1.html?tp=5684

It's got an amazing 728 possible illumination colors....... plus it would fit perfectly in an MkV. Might pull the trigger once the tax refund comes in.

I would be inclined to think that is very possible. Would that show some kind of error code, such as "Radio no communication with CanBus?


Would VCDS show a code if the problem is in the radio?
