Hello everyone,

I am not sure if I should have posted this in tweaks or retrofit considering it was a factory option on the car, and seems kinda like a tweak. Please move this thread if I have posted it in the wrong location.

I have a 2012 Passat (B7) SE. I brought my VIN to the VW stealership and told them I wanted to install remote start and I needed a quote will all part numbers and etc. They obliged.

They said I need:

000-065-713-A - Harness - $20.70
4H0-951-253-A - Relay - $36.20
561-837-202-D-INF - Key (x2) - $142.86 (ea)
561-065-760-A - RemoteContr - $287.00
Labor $580
Total cost - $1107.84


I proceeded to purchase everything listed online for less half of their cost.. for VW original parts and 2 keys (uncut) I am in for $230.

Does anyone know what in VCDS will need to be changed/added to get this to work properly?

Obviously the keys will need to be programmed, does anyone have a location on a step by step guide on how that needs to be done?


Thank you,
Robbie

Since you're adding parts that weren't in your car from the factory, this is definitely a retrofit. :)

Because we have so many members here in RoW markets, where B7 Passat is an entirely different animal than yours, we refer to the Chattanooga Passats as the "NMS" model.

Hi

Adding the remote start feature is no problem at your Passat. You can try to get the parts cheaper from the net,but be carefull with used keys ! They cant added to your immobilizer. If you have question regarding the retrofit-contact me
