I have a 2017 Volkswagen Passat. working on re-wiring the front assist camera. I have wired everything correctly and followed a few other forms of other b7 and b8 Passat. One thing that confuses me is in the manual from those 2 people it says a wire needs to be jumped from the camera to the front assist radar (Pin 5) this is the wiring harness I was told to get. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MNSQ9QG/ref=cm_sw_r_oth_api_glt_fabc_6CTCWQYMKVN9C3Y7NHRH
one guide I followed https://www.vwvortex.com/threads/the-quest-for-the-elusive-usa-acc-retrofit.9301529/

also referred to the radar (Pin 5) https://forums.ross-tech.com/index.php?threads/3824/

on the harness I am greeted with a very short green cable with one terminal plug. The same green cable that connects to the radar distance sensor. There is suppose to be 2 but only one. I got everything else down great except that. can someone maybe help me figure this out please? thanks!

@Volksnator1792: My diagram in post #5 in your RT link came from a RoW model Golf mk7. As I said in post#3, whilst pin#5 (and Pin #6) are shown as connected to R242, I was aware that the front camera was (often?) not used - particularly on NAR models. Your countryman @insoc confirms this in post #5 in your RT link.

It's entirely likely that this is the case for your NAR vehicle - maybe?
