Re: Why didn't my alarm go off?

Common thing it the switch on the bonnet catch. I bypassed one on a passat i had. I changed my front passengers side wing recently and loosened the front bumper, i wonder if thats had any effect? From experience if one of the door modules is iffy, this can cause the lack of beep when you lock the c...

It depends on what's wrong it may be as simple as a broken wire.
If you could scan for fault codes that would help point you in the right direction.

Re: Why didn't my alarm go off?

carpets or mats on the passenger side have never been wet.... strange.

Re: Why didn't my alarm go off?

I have no idea, Passats are famous for water ingress to the comfort control unit, hopefully it's not that though. Might be an idea to check the writing to the drivers door as that is how the alarm would be set when you lock it. Does it show the drivers door open on the instrument cluster? Sent from...

LED Light Bar

Anyone on here running a light bar fitted to the roof rails?

Winters coming and i do long drives up to Aberdeen from Teesside and the extra light would be ideal on the dark nights!

I've seen a couple of bars but wondered if anyone has one fitted, how they've wired it etc.

Why didn't my alarm go off?

So last week my B5.5 was broken into and my Pioneer head unit stolen X( X( X( X( X( They forced the drivers side lock, however my alarm never went off. This was overnight on my drive. Is there a reason why my alarm never went off? i know it works because i've set it off by accident a few times.

So bit of an update on this.... Had the cruise control fitted on the Friday. Drove it home and parked up. Drove to Manchester airport last week on the Monday and parked up. Come home Saturday night and started the drove home. This is where I've found another fault since having the retrofit carried o...

It's all about the torque as this upsets the clutch .

With right skills is possible to mess up everything :D and b5 and b5.5 wiring diagrams are little different. 2 wires are swapped with places. Could be the issue, but then usually u can't turn it on. It comes on only while reset button is being pressed. Ah right I see. It's booked in again for then ...

Retrofit Cruise control

So while my car was in getting mapped I asked them to fit the cruise control I bought from TPS. However there's problems. Everything's fitted, lights up on the dashboard and every thing in VAGCOM says it should be working. The problem is that it doesn't work [emoji23][emoji23] won't set at any speed...
