No, however you could modify the fuse/ safety part (forgot its name) to constantly supply power, however i would worry about doing this because:Can I turn one or both of my 12v ports on when the car is off with VCDS?
Learning about TDI's.
It is designed that way so someone can't break into your car and open your garage door.Is there a way to keep the home link button's working after turning off the car? I always have to turn on the car and use the home link its annoying. If there is a fix pls do let us knw.
Can you tell me how?You can also set the turn signals to turn off the DRL on the side where the turn signal is flashing. This help the turn signal to stand out.
Enable fog lights use with high beams on.
Increase the voltage to the headlights and taillights for brighter lighting. (I set them to 13.0 volts, instead of the 12.6 v that was factory set.)
No. You can not disable the DSG's "creep" behavior. It might be possible to do with a DSG tune - you'll want to contact Mark Malone for more information. I don't recommend doing it though because it would make stop and go traffic very annoying.Hi, I have my '13 Passat for a month now. One thing i noticed with the DSG tranny, which I don't like much.....
When I am at full stop with drive shift in "D", as soon as I let go of brake pedal pressure (even just slightly), I can feel the engine rev up slightly and clutch engaging and car wants to creep forward.
Can this be adjusted and/or disabled in VCDS?
I recall driving a friend's MR2 and M3 with sequential gear box. Even in "D", as long as you don't press gas pedal, the wheel is totally disengaged from the tranny.
Thanks in advance.
What he said. Most people complain the DSG doesn't engage sooner...No. You can not disable the DSG's "creep" behavior. It might be possible to do with a DSG tune - you'll want to contact Mark Malone for more information. I don't recommend doing it though because it would make stop and go traffic very annoying.
Heck... if someone is bold enough to break in the car... there is only one step away from breaking in my garage. I see your point though. I would like to see a 1 minute after key off timer to allow a push button active to open/close garage door. Compromise? Yes?It is designed that way so someone can't break into your car and open your garage door.
Ross TechI'll pre-apologize now if this is the wrong section to ask, but I've been searching for what the correct cable to buy for VCDS use, and have seen several types on amazon, but they don't seem to designate what model / year they work on. I just bought the 2013 US Passat TDI, and have a OBD2 Bluetooth that works well with some apps, now to get deeper into the mix with a cable and the program on the laptop, any assistance would be appreciated.
Thank you both, I first saw info on vcds on YouTube and had some direction to check amazon, but the reviews on the no name brands were good to bad and not mentioning model year do I figured you all would know best.Ross Tech

Thanks. Maybe down the road. Pretty sure you can enable this with vcds in the s4 DSG. Too bad.Yes, but it requires a DSG tune.
In drive it will display D1, D2, D3, D4, D5, D6
In sport it will display S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6
In manual it will display 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Tried this and it had no effect at all. I've got stock head/tail lights. Thanks for the link to the long code calculator - very helpful.Originally posted by vw_norm
To enable single side Park Lights (when car is off): Hard code bit 1 to 1 in the binary block, click in the HEX block and press enter. If only bit 0 (far right) is 1 and bit 1 is 1, then your HEX should be 03. You can just enter 03 in the long coding editor block, or whatever your binary comes out to in HEX with bit 1 as a 1.
The $99 license is used if you already have a cable and want to make it 'official' so you can use the latest software. You want the cable/license bundle. http://store.ross-tech.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=RTAC&Tab=3 enter your VIN to see what works. Should be two options. The more expensive is also backwards compatible with older VWs. I need to send my old one back as a "trade-in" on the newer version.Hello again, I'm trying to read all I can here and get all the info so I can jump in headlong. On the VCDS / Ross-Tech cable purchase which was previously suggested, are you purchasing the $250 version with cable and software or is there something else? I noticed a $99 software license but didn't know how that would apply. Sorry for all these noob questions but I like to be fully informed before purchasing so I don't waste money that could go to more toys. And if there is another site or link to get more information from that would be helpful. I did go to the Ross-Tech site and checked out some YouTube links but that's it so far. My TDI Passat is new, so possibly I'm looking at this technology before I'd need it?
Thanks again for the info.
I should add that with OEM byte 18 coding, A0, masked by the 00 dummy code, had no effect either. Once I started getting into the different variations on byte 18 coding while working on the LED tails, this functionality became active.Tried this and it had no effect at all. I've got stock head/tail lights. Thanks for the link to the long code calculator - very helpful.
