  8. EPC light and Crank Position Sensor Change

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Yesterday I was caught by surprise when tried to start the car (1.8T 2002). It took several attempts to crank the engine but then instantly got the EPC light and high idle. Based on what I read in the forum, the culprit should be a bad crank position sensor. Is that a right assumption? Or should...

From the research I have done, there is no fusable link, and before I get in to troubleshooting, I was...
