    Passat 1993 GLS

    Searched through the whole forum could not find what i was looking for.
    anyone know a method i can read info off the car?
    i read almost every post on ODB but i cant seem to find what i am looking for.
    my car shouldnt be that hard because clicking "buttons" on the car gives me info such as outside temperature, oil temp, total minutes car on, and so on.

    any help would be appreciate it.

    has anyone actually went into their car dealer and asked them about this?
    I am thinking of actually going in and asking the mechanics of passats,

    you probably have an OBD 1 connector if anything at all. i have a 94 jetta and it has obd1. contact me if you find out you have a OBD1 connector, i know how to pull codes from the ECU.

    If im not mistaken you have a MFA switch in the wipers stalk...MFA is build into the gauge cluster which calculates mpg, time, gives outside temp, etc. It doesnt have anything to do with OBD,
    btw check your OBD connectors- they are (should be) hidden somewhere behind the heater controls/cig.lighter....its either 2 plugs with 2pins or new OBD2 plug.
