TDI conversion (PATS question)


Recommended Posts

Hey i've started a TDI conversion on my van.


My question is what PATS parts do need to swap over?


theres the transceiver thats around the barrel and keychip but do i need to change the module behind the dash?


my guess is i will have to its just i dont recall any TDI conversion thread mentioning taking the dash out


thanks in advance

you don't need the transceiver ring but you can replace it if you wish, what you definately need is...


key(s) pats ecu, engine ecu and engine/dash wiring



being a complete pain to get at the pats box you can leave your existing one there and cable tie your replacement up behind dash with the new wiring.


i can supply more details if needed

The fuel heater shouldn't make a difference to starting in this weather, neither should the cold start advance (waxstat). I removed my fuel heater months ago, and even in the freezing cold mornings I had no trouble with starting my car on the first turn of the key. I would look towards a fuel problem i.e. lack of fuel due to air in the lines, or worse case scenario, engine compression. Edited by marty1979
