Which one would be better for my 14 Passat TDI with the CKRA?

PF03 or PF04?

I tried checking compatible vehicles on their websire, and they say to look at the 7th and 8th digits of the VIN (1VWCN7A35DCxxxxxx) but I dont see A3 on their compatibility list.

Has your '14 Passat had the "fix" done? I ask because one (or more) member here had the fix done and their Polar FIS+ did not work anymore. Polar will have to release new firmware to cover the new ECU software versions in ECUs that have been updated. If the Polar unit doesn't recognize your ECU software version - it does not know what it can do or how to do it.
I am pretty sure that the PF03 would physically fit in your car (the CAN gateway is in the right place), but that doesn't mean that it will work. If you send an autoscan to Polar, they might be able to tell you if your car and ECU version will work.

Have Fun!

Don

P.S. If you learn that a PF03 will work, call me (I have one).

It has had the fix, but I would be interested in plugging it in and seeing if it works. If it does, I'll buy it.

Edit: There is an update from Auto-Polar v0.5.4 that says it includes "Updated engine ecu database with new dieselgate ecus."

Edit2: But then again there are people saying their car still isnt supported with 5.4. And there is a guy with Beta 5.5 saying his now works.

So it seems to be coming...

Still interested. Maybe I can update it to the Beta 5.5

KERMA,

Can you let me know if a 2015 Beetle TDI is included in support for this Vehicle? CVCA IIRC. New left over Beetle. Thanks in advance!

Looks like the PF04 is just an upgraded PF03, and the PF05 is MQB only?

I don't believe the NMS Passat is on the MQB platform.

MQB is everywhere now, easy to get confused. Thanks for the clarity!

I know. And to further confuse it, the big old Atlas now coming out of Chattanooga is on the MQB platform.

Ok...

So I can confirme that the Beta 5.5 update does work on post fix Passats. I have a 2014 with the CKRA engine that has been "fixed" before I bought it...

I bought Dons (JSWTDI09) PF03 and he was kind enough to update it to the beta 5.5 before I picked it up based on something I read about Beta 5.5 working on post fix cars...

So that's the good news...

The bad news is that coming home from the Nascar race, my glow plug light started flashing. But I'll start a thread in the Passat forum so as not to clog up this thread with unrelated info.

According to what I was told, they had no choice in this one. The PF03 plugged into the CAN gateway above the brake pedal. I have been told that the MQB vehicles have the CAN gateway integrated into the instrument panel. Therefore Auto-Polar will have to figure out another way to plug their box into the car's network. I do not know what they have chosen as an alternative. I'm sure that Kerma will let us know.

Have Fun!

Don

Thanks. I just ordered one with the note that you'll know if it works on my 2015 GSW. SOOOO hoping it does.
