    VW Passat B8 '15, MIB2.5 Retrofit

    Dear fellow Forumers,

    I turn to you in a time of need. Excessive "google"-ing and internet searches have sadly yielded no answers for me. Here it is in hopes of enlisting some more experienced brain cells:

    I decided to swap my old MIB for a new one with GPS and went for a "fully unlocked/activated" MIB2.5 unit with a 9" screen from EBAY.
    Here is the original auto-scan before installing the new MIB.

    Code:
    Removed.  Data from a clone/pirate copy of VCDS is not acceptable here.
    After the installation I had no funtioning ACC or Lane assist and error codes all over the place...
    Luckily I managed to long code modules A5 and 5F, deriving from my original auto scan and others in the forum, so that I got back the functionality and most error codes cleared.
    But there are still some codes in 5F and I have had no luck in clearing. I suspect the "fully unlocked/activated" part of the MIB - could it be it has some adaptations activated for which my car is not equipped?
    Here is the current auto scan:

    Code:
    Removed.  Data from a clone/pirate copy of VCDS is not acceptable here.
    Nevermind the CAN-bus faults, I created them myself by adding modules while experimenting.
    Also the fault under sound system was there before - the speaker needs checking.
    What have me puzzled are the faults under 5F, specifically:

    2565 - GPS Antenna
    B1054 13 [009] - Open Circuit

    6696 - Instrument Cluster Control Module on Optical Bus
    U10C0 00 [009] - No Communication

    7191 - Function Restricted due to Missing Message(s)
    U1111 00 [009] - -

    7194 - Function Restricted due to Missing Message(s)
    U1111 00 [009] - -

    7197 - Function Restricted due to Missing Message(s)
    U1111 00 [009] - -

    7201 - Function Restricted due to Missing Message(s)
    U1111 00 [009] - -

    7205 - Function Restricted due to Missing Message(s)
    U1111 00 [009] - -

    7219 - Function Restricted due to Missing Message(s)
    U1111 00 [009] - -

    7223 - Function Restricted due to Missing Message(s)
    U1111 00 [009] - -

    7225 - Function Restricted due to Missing Message(s)
    U1111 00 [009] - -

    7228 - Function Restricted due to Missing Message(s)
    U1111 00 [009] - -

    Could the aftermarket antennae be faulty? On visual check all seems fine and it is connected correctly(GPS works but doesn't have a signal).
    Could the rest of the faults need some changes in adaptations?

    Thanks for any help!

    Getting help in this forum requires the use of a legitimate VCDS system.

    They are available directly from us:
    https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/cat/VCDS

    ... Or from any of our authorized resellers:
    http://www.ross-tech.com/distributors.php#fi

    Let us know if/when you get one and we'll adjust your forum status.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
