He has a passat GT B8 platform.. not an MK7, I wouldn't even know where to start with all those questions.

Here's the current coding for a B8 don't ask me any questions about them.. I just cut and pasted off the ObdEleven forum and it took me about 30 seconds.
yeah I've found these on the obd11 proboard and other forums as well, just wanted to see if there is a "official libraray" for all tweaks.

I know I'm in the wrong forum but I've found this more informative... since the mk7 and mk8 (aka b8) are based on the mqb platform I figured some tweaks can be used on either car... Or have I missunderstood this completely?

ITGUY: My bad - because OP had posted in a mk7 forum, I read "I got a nice deal on a PAssat GT 190 TDI 4M, 2016 (in Sweden)" as meaning he/she had traded-in the Passat on a mk7!!

Don

PS: I won't delete my response - hopefully some of my information will be pertinent to the B8 - given that they both are built on the MQB platform
No problem Don,,, I was just trying to be that beep like in that car commercial I think Nissan where the guy hears a beep everytime he's about to make a bad decision.. but all he was doing was filling up air in his tire.. I was just trying to stop you from posting a bunch of information for MK7's when they didn't have one lol :)

You need good internet connection. McDonalds is free, you could always park an their car park connect and use their wi fi.;)
I tried this again a few days at my Parents house with better internet - 14Mbps plus.

Got the error check done but still countn't do any adaptations, still getting an everlasting loading data message - 30 mins waiting!

Just got mine in the mail yesterday. First thing I want to try is making the inner tail lights into turn signals - blinking at the same time as the outer turn signal, and also as brake lights . I searched the thread but couldn't find how this is done.

I have the standard US taillights. Do I need any additional wiring?

Can someone post the coding for it, or is there an app that I can use for it?

There is many resources how to do this in his thread, trust me. Do a little searching in the thread to find links for coding.

So I have searched the site, Google, YouTube, and more and I have yet to find what I am looking for. I am aware of Urban Joke (versions 1 and 2) but I am looking for something slightly different. Chances are the answer is more simplified than I see to believe it be.

I am wanting the inner tails to operate as brake lights and only the outer tails operate both as brake lights and blinkers as they are now. To clarify, outer tails operate as they do now and the inner tails operate as brake lights. Can someone throw me a freak'n bone here? Thanks in advance.

Escape hatch: not sure about the "bone" analogy, but it sounds like you just want the inner tail lights to operate as "parker plus brake" function

Have a look at the various tweaks in the "Lights" category of my VCDS reference thread (see link below). Depending on whether your car has LED, or incandescent tails, perhaps post #614, or post #446 might be suitable!

I'm not sure what about the app is difficult to figure out. If you have specific questions post them here and I'm happy to help you out.
It's pretty straightforward though...Pair the device (code is 1234) to your phone, Enable the Pro version (assuming you bought it and have your code – if you didn't buy it, buy it. Immediately), follow the many published VCDS tweaks. Here are some good ones:
https://sites.google.com/a/naturalnetworks.ca/vw-golf-mk7-vcds-how-to/
https://docs.google.com/document/d/151DX1D0BEs76UfUpJbBAVJ8OhuhEoRPrmxFsUrKiVm0/pub

Keep in mind that "Instruments" in VCDS corresponds to "Dashboard" on OBDEleven.

In terms of your specific error, make sure your key is in the accessory/ignition on position (car does not need to be started). The only time I ever got that message is when I inadvertently hadn't put the key in that position.

I searched for "tweaks" in this thread

Thanks. I'm looking to do a similar tweak. This is quite helpful.

Having issues with this in my MK7 R DSG DCC. I plugged in, paired, turned down Soundactor, left dongle in 1 night. Now car is unresponsive and blinking codes a little bit related to gear box in park etc. It's as if battery is dead as nothing happens with foot on break and ignition. Has anyone out there experienced this?

Should also mention car is APR stage 1 with TCU tune. All stock otherwise.

Thanks!

You probably killed the battery, charge the battery and report back.

It started back up. Test driving... Not sure if this car goes crazy like this when battery is low or if the OBD was causing it but it was doing crazy $hit. The tachs were pulsing and screens were flickering. I'm a bit worried using this now.

Similar experience. When the battery is low same symptoms as you have. Not sure what causes the low battery. One guess is leaving OBD11 in the OBDII port "may" cause a drain in certain circumstances.

yes it causes drain only if you leave the phone connected to it ! if you disconnect the phone in the app before leaving it will be fine. i leave my obd always in but disconnect it. i confirmed months ago with them that this is how you should do it.

Great to know! Thx for this. Car is back to normal and actually seemed more peppy today.
