  1. Red square light on instrument panel

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had a thread on here about the last issue I had. For some reason my cars dash would randomly go out and the windows would stop working then if I shut the car off the immobilizer would kick in and I couldn't start the car till I disconnected the battery and let it all reset. When I hooked the...
  2. Door lock module repair options?

    I'd think the easiest work around is getting that glue dissolved and using the standard method... Any idea what's on there? Have you tried just seperating it from the glass using a razor blade?

  4. Red square light on instrument panel

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My understanding is those have been a constant issue but usually the other way around that they just go dark in too much sun light and if it sits for a bit they go back to normal

    They had batteries 20% off so I picked one up for ~$100...Cleared all the codes and seeing what happens...Maybe its placebo or maybe it actually helped but I feel like my fob is more responsive from further away now too.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had the volt meter direct on the battery when I was seeing those readings. I took the battery to get tested and they said it was fine, chances they can be dying but still test correct? Odd that you mention the cigarette lighter.. It's never worked well, if I plug in a charger I have to wiggle...

    So everything has been fine for the last 2 weeks... Last night the ol lady dragged me to pick up a Christmas tree at 8:45pm and I left the car running while I tied it up. When I got back in the car the lights on the dash were off and the windows wouldn't work again. Heard a humming coming from...

    The battery was at 11.65 in the morning most likely because I had tried starting the car so many times the night before unsuccessfully. Took it into batteries plus and they hooked it up to their machine. Said the CCA was showing at above what's printed on the battery and I had a full charge...

    Everything is clean but its a DieHard battery, does sears even still exist? Assuming its older and swinging to batteries plus to get tested today. It dropped from the 70s to the 30s last night so i feel like the battery took a gut punch on that.

    Let the car warm up then I turned it off...My dash stayed lit this time but took 4 turns on the key before the engine reacted. Relay or ignition switch? ALso looking at the volt meter if i rev the engine on decel the battery drops to 9-10.5v

    So everything was fine and dandy today... Parked the car and come out to it not starting. When I turn the key the only thing that happens is the traction control light comes on for a sec then whole dash goes dark. If I start it, it starts for a sec then shuts itself down similar to anti-theft...

    My understanding is the less sharp angled turns you make the longer they will last because they are overstretched on their design and intened use in our cars.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/163025426389?hash=item25f51297d5 I bought that one and it works fine once you install the proper drivers. https://www.ebay.com/itm/202678542911?hash=item2f3095223f Grabbed that one too cause I needed my security pin...It can pull all the codes also without needing a...
