    No fuse diagram available !!!

    I drive a 2015 Passat and I know that there is no fuse diagram available anywhere, the dealer is no help. So if a fuse blows how do you know which one it is? I had the fuse for the 12volt outlet below the radio go on me. Because of the fuses I had installed I knew exactly which fuse it is since...

    Phone in car

    I'm just curious if the cellphone uses the shark fin antenna or just it's own antenna when connected in the car.

    2015 Passat TDI fuse diagram

    Well as we all know there is no fuse diagram to be found. Maybe someone in the business of repairing may have that. Now about 3-4 years ago I decided that that is ridiculous and spent the money to buy an assortment of ATO fuses that light up when they are blown. Happened to me today that a...

    Remove "Missing" link reference

    Just don't know where to post this. I used to have a file that would pop up when someone looked at my post. It is gone since the forum was revamped, BUT now there is a red X in it's place. I've seen it in other posters messages too. I've checked my profile page and cannot find anything there...

    EV cars

    There was a thread about EV cars which is now locked. I added a comment about someone doing a 250mile (400km) trip in winter in a Tesla and how it in my opinion was a royal PIA trip. Here is the link for that trip.

    Downloading file via Flashzilla

    Just had my car in at the dealer, oil change, brake fluid change and DSG transmission fluid change. I'm pretty sure that the DSG did not have anything done via the electronic access port. My MFI indicator still shows me D1 to D6 where the OEM only shows the numbers. I think I am right, if I...

    Passenger side mirror

    My passenger side mirror does not go to the lowered position any longer when the car is in reverse. It used to until recently. I can move the mirror manually using the knob on the drivers door. The MIF is set to dip the mirror in reverse. The knob on the drivers door is in the "R" position...

    DSG fluid change

    Thought I'd better start my own thread, tacked onto another no one will see it. Sometime around the middle of April I'll be coming up I-35 from Laredo to Dallas, then east to Texarkana and then on to Memphis. Looking to have my DSG fluid changed on my Passat and an idea of the cost and who...

    Looking for DPF cleaner

    I've looked at various DPF cleaners and all require access to the DPF on the car. Found Bardahl and Tec4 which both are added into the fuel tank. Does anyone know where any of those two or a similar product can be bought. I may be wrong but the DPF filter on our cars does not have an access...

    Diesel fuel usage. LSD vs. ULSD

    I have a 2015 Passat TDI which I drive to Mexico every fall and back home in the spring. I drive it very rarely in Mexico because as far as I know the Diesel is still LSD here ! When I do, each time I drive at highway speeds in 4th gear for example to try and burn some crap off! I drive because...

    DEF usage?

    Just out of curiosity, I just did an almost 4,500 mile trip and today I thought I'd see how much DEF I used. It barely took 1 litre or a bit more than 1 US quart. That would mean it used way less than it ought to? Any ideas why that may be?

    Another sometimes mysterious starting situation

    My car has the DSG. I push hard on the brake pedal and push the Kessy button to start and nothing happens. Take my foot of the brake and release the Kessy button and about one second later the starter engages and the engine starts.:confused: It's like the systems thinks do I want to start or...

    Diesel Fuel filter change

    This is a Youtube link to show an easy way to change the fuel filter on most newer Diesel VW's. I have a plastic shopping bag handy to drop the used filter into after it has drained most of the Diesel off. I have not found it necessary to use a VCDS or prime with the fuel pump since before...

    H8 size battery install in a 2015 Passat

    Duralast Platinum H8-AGM battery, or any other larger than OEM size battery. Auto zone lists this battery as a fit for a 2015 Passat. It does fit after quite a bit of work to make it fit since the H8-AGM is just under 10cm (4") longer, the width is the same. I did not try to fit the silly...
