I picked up a MIB 2 radio out of a 2017 Beetle at my local scrap yard. I tried putting in my wife's 2015 Passat. I ran the additional power wires it needed. So it powers up fine. But it plays at full volume and the volume knob does nothing.

Does anyone know, is there more to this then plug and play?

I read somewhere that the VIN needs to be matched some how.

I've been doing some research and it looks like you can disable the component protection with VAG Commander 1.4
Working on getting a copy.

It is a bit of a pain. I did pay for "remote help" to do all that, but you still need the same physical tools to "fix" the MIB2.

Whatever process you need some proficiency with computers.
