Lost convenience menu in MFD

Hi, basically when I remove my car key the doors usually unlock, but only the drivers side does now!

I've been into the mfd and lost the convenience menu which obviously is used to program door unlocking etc.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: New Android unit, poor reception

Had a go at testing the power to the rear Window antenna and it's getting 12 volts so it's got power. I bought a second hand antenna or amplifier for the rear Window and the reception is still the same. I have tried having the am and fm wires connected, no different. The reception gets worse with my...

Backing plate with rear pads?

Hi, just got some new rear pads for my passat, mintex ones but they come with 4 metal backing plates about 1.5mm thick, pretty sure I don't have this setup at the moment. They are loose in the box and obviously the same profile and the pads. I assume they go between the metal part of the pad and the...

Fitting near rear epb motor, tips after breaking new one!

Hello, any tips for fitting a new epb motor? I managed to snap one of the fitting points off my new one as it was tight on the new o ring. I noticed some corrosion on the recess for the o ring so the diameter was bigger but even after cleaning it up and seeing if would fit it still wouldn't slide on...

Handbrake stuck on

Hi, had the handbrake warning light come up! Got out the car and one of the motors was still running for about ten seconds or so, and one caliper is stuck on!

Is there a fix to see me thru for a few days until I can fix it, thanks.

Re: Sport estate suspension

I might be wrong but I'm not sure if you can purchase a stiffer spring, maybe listed as heavy duty for people who use the vehicle to tow.

Re: Rubbish air con

Just to update, a new pcv valve in the compressor for 15 quid fixed the problem. I was getting 17 degrees at the vents, after fitting the new pcv and a regas, I'm now getting 4 degrees. The new valve is slightly longer at the end which might have been used in the later compressors but does the same ...

Emissions update

Did I read somewhere on here that if the egr fails after the update or within two years, vw will fix it for free?

Haven't had mine done, just curious.

Rubbish air con

The air con in my passat has never been great, it works but it's just not ice cold! It's just the standard a/c unit. Had it re gassed 2 years ago, was maybe slightly better but hardly much! Sat in traffic it's pants! The fans work, compressor works, the fins for the Rad look a bit damaged assuming i...

Thanks. Tried what you said but only a slight improvement, still getting fuzzy reception, can only get radio 1 and to local stations, the rest are rubbish. It was like this on my standard basic head unit so something isn't right. Maybe a new rear Window amp will help? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tap...

New Android unit, poor reception

Just bought a Android head unit and the radio reception is poor, even the standard unit couldn't pick up many stations. Yet I can jump into an old corsa and pick up everything! Anyway, the new unit I have only requires one fakra in the back so I had to buy a 2 into 1 adaptor. See picture Do I need t...

Changing exhaust manifold exhaust gas temp sensor

Hi

I have a G235 egt exhaust gas temperature fault, constantly reading 18 degrees. I think this sensor is in the exhaust manifold under the Turbo, so pre Turbo.

Has anyone ever changed these, I have read there a pig to get to.

Any tips please!?

Thanks

Re: Two Fault Codes

I fixed my p2015 with a 20 quid part off ebay. The working envelope of the motor extends too far beyond it's working limits due to wear. This part I fitted cured this.
