Battery drain Polo 6R TSI 2012 1.2 - EliasH97 - 05-09-2019

Hey.

I ordered

 version of the RCD330 Plus which is compatible with the Polo 6R. Installation works totally fine, takes like 10 minutes at most. Took it for a test run and it held up really well. Then the day after my battery is completely dead. Car won't start at all. The battery is so low that the key can't unlock the car remotely. 

Anyhow, I try to jumpstart the car but the battery has given up completely. 

So I unplug the RCD330 Plus, plug in my old radio and go and buy a new battery. I install it without any issues, it works just fine. The car has been running without any issues for a month or so now. Until I got my so called "fix" to this issue, which was

 little adapter. Well, one day later and the car isn't starting. 

Anyone else had really bad luck but found a solution or something? I really enjoy the RCD330 Plus display and AppleCar Play, and with the amount of money and trouble I've gone through for this I'm not going to give up that easily, but I'm running out of ideas. 

Anyone?

Did either of you find a solution? I was told by one seller in China that the SW control adapter with Canbus Emulator would solve the controls and battery drain issue for my Mk5 2007 Golf R32. It appears in this case above that didnt work. I was reading elsewhere that i would need a replacement Canbus with a letter AD or Q on the end to solve the battery drain issue...

Any updates? I have a 2011 Jetta S (which uses Polo 6R CAN that is integrated into the CECM) and cannot keep the new battery charged. I can't change the CAN gateway since it is built into the central electronics like an old Mk4.

Hello,

You can buy a can bus adapter. But you will not be able to use steering wheel controls.

My car does not have steering wheel controls.  Are you referring to the dongle that connects between the radio and the car harness?

If your car does not have steering wheel controls,

You can use canbus adapter.

This will solve your issue.

Hi all,

Please excuse my amateur understanding of this, but has anyone solved this battery-drain issue for good? Does this Canbus Adapter definitely work?

I have a VW Polo MK5 6R

Thanks in advance! Smile

Hello,
Canbus adapter is an exact solution.. However steering buttons will not work.
