  12. Battery Disconnect Switch

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Does anyone use anything like this? I wanted to get one for our Camry, because it's lucky if it's driven every few months (and I know it has some sort of very low parasitic drain). I have no interest in trying to track it down. Then, I was thinking, maybe one for the Passat would be nice too...

    Hi guys I have a key fob model HL0 1J0 959 753 F, the old style 3 button with no chrome ring at the bottom. I currently have CR1620's in it right now which are completely smoked. I was wondering if CR2032's fit in these, or if it's only 1620's? And what is the original size? Thanks, Elliott

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    ’00 Passat 4Mo wagon, 2.8l ATQ About 6 years ago, the VW dealer replaced the battery with an Interstate product, I believe. Then, three years ago, that battery died, and was replaced by an EverStart MAXX H6, which cost about half as much, not at the dealer. I believe they are both made by...
