Ever want to kill a family member to death? Passat got jump started but sounds like it was first connected with cables reversed. Anyway it made it back from KC somehow. Alternator charges not sure how diodes are. It runs normally so I guess I will call it a win. No radio nav etc. First time I ran the codes and drove it 15 miles there was no codes for steering or tpms. No expert on the Vag com here but it would seem that we start with a battery, it is bad. I had it on charger for diagnostics. Also looks like a Can gateway may be in order as well. Thanks in advance for any help. I will learn and pass it on here as I have tried to do before.

First is get a good battery in there. Low voltages can show a host of errors. If you can't remove it and fully charge it, then get a new one. Batteries don't like being discharged completely and it isn't good for the alternator to try and fully charge them either. Then drive it some to let any thing clear and check again.

Too much drama.
Save your scan results from above.
Clear all codes.
Charge your battery, have it tested if necessary.
Restart and see which of the codes come back.
Then start troubleshooting one at a time.
I don't see anything that I'd panic about.... not at this point anyways.

Appreciate the help so far. All fuses are good including mains and branch fuses including under hood and drivers side dash. Checked with ohm meter not visual.
No change new scan with new battery. I believe I am unable to clear codes. Right after I try to clear it comes back with the same codes as before I clear without me trying a rescan if that makes any sense. In other words the module numbers come back with the same faults without me scanning. That should make it clear as mud.
Am I correct in assuming my next step is to buy a can gateway? If so is good used ok, is there different ones, do I need to recode and about 10 more questions. I will research and probably answer a lot of these questions. Thanks

I bought my son a used gas Tiguan from a Nissan Dealer about 18 months ago. We took our vcds and laptop to scan and negotiate the price. The scan revealed just about every code under the sun. I tried clearing with the "clear all codes" button and they all came back. Dealer claimed car had sat for a while with a dead battery and they just replaced the battery. I went back in and cleared each code individually then we test drove the car for 15 minutes...no codes and none since. Try clearing each code individually. Good luck, John

Not quite sure how to do that john but will research. I am a novice on the vcds. Grasias

Update. No love, most controllers can't be reached If nothing else I will be forced to be "smarter" because of this mishap.

Say can the optical bus diagnostics help in my situation, looks like it may be able too. Nope tried not supported

Off topic but I need to see if I have the scope function.

Am I correct that the can gateway is the highway through which all controllers must travel

But your CAN gateway is only complaining about not been able to talk to the radio. I say disconnect the radio and try scanning and clearing codes.

I would say that is reasonable. If that worked though I would assume either several modules would need to be replaced or the head unit itself.
Then I would need to deal with the other modules that have no communication as well. It was previously scanned about a week before all this happened with no codes.

Is there a good article I could read that will explain how all this works together? Google has not been my friend. I have lived under the phrase of " Design, function, repair. Im having a time with design and function. Again many thanks just remind yourself it's like teaching a toddler to walk

Also, check the fuse for the headunit, make sure that didn't blow. I presume your backup camera is not showing anything in the screen, and the HU is not even powering up.

What others have said before is true, many times some codes are not reset with the "clear all codes" command. Try going inside the modules that are "talking", get in the gateway module and clear the codes in there, and so on.

I did get into the gateway and cleared then rechecked. Everything came back the same. I think I tried getting into the ones that wont communicate but not 100 percent sure, last few days are a blur with work. Will attempt again to make sure
The head unit won't power up. I will also disconnect the unit but my question is would communication work then if it was a bad HU and just send a different code. Lots of questions.
Checked all fuses at the box with a ohm meter. All in good shape unless there is another one not under the hood or on drivers side dash
What can prevent the gateway from communicating with the other modules? Bad wiring or modules, fuses, bad gateway, bad devise (headunit etc)
I just automatically assume ( right or wrong ) that if several things occurred at the same time look for the common denominator. I understand that this is a bit different in that several things could have been affected at the same time as it electricity.

Reversing the battery can fry multiple things, but the can gateway is talking. The HU seems fried or again, you haven't found the right fuse. Yes, there is another fuse box in the cabin, I believe you have to get the little swing door (below the light switch) out of the hinges and it is right there.

I forget if this particular HU has a fuse in the back, perhaps that's the older ones.

Most of all codes are for the headunit, which might be indeed dead. Other than that, all windows missing calibration is solved by going full up and full down couple of times using it's switch, not all from the drivers switch. The abs, not sure, perhaps that sensor got fried.

I don't have vcds open right now but I think at the scan results, just below the VIN where the modules are listed numerically with their status, ones with malfunction had red text. Either a right click or double click brought up a dialog box asking if you want to clear the code. Click OK. You have to do this for each fault and can't batch "clear all codes".

There is also a Ross Tech Wiki page which may help. I must confess I am by no means a VCDS master. Good luck, John

Have you driven it at all? If it was an early 2012 before the master fuse then i could see multiple modules being fried, but later ones (later 12s and up) seem to just fry the master fuse.

2013 not near it for the build date though. Master fuse by battery checks out ok.

I tried clearing codes indivually but either wasn't possible or they came back with a rescan. Car runs down the road fine.

Plan to try to pull rns510 this weekend to disconnect and check for a fuse. Seems like it may or may not have one on the back of the unit.

Early 2012 meaning built in 2011. I saw an early 2012 passat in a dealership service dept one time that autozone installed a battery backwards, you could smell the fried electronics final bill iirc was around $12k, this was 2014ish so the car was fixed and not totaled but it took awhile. Later 2012s and newer have the master fuse which prevents that kind of damage.

UPDATE
There is a 20 amp mini fuse in the back of the RNS510. Was blown, replaced, works no codes. I wish to thank every response here. Hopefully anyone that needs this info may stumble on this thread.
Now to tackle the steering assist which may be a reset procedure and TPMS module. Like i said these were not on with my initial test drive. They came on later in the day.
