    On my 2001.5 sedan, the door buzzer goes off continuously anytime I open the driver's door while the car is running. It is the same buzzer that goes off when you turn the car off and open the door with the headlights on. I already replaced the driver's door locking module. For some reason that I...

    I can't afford to take it to the dealership so what can I do to troubleshoot to find out the problem? Or are these two problems something needs to be taken care of at a German shop. I have a 2005 VW passat

    I have been driving with heater core by-passed for 8 months now (since http://www.passatworld.com/forums/42-volkswagen-passat-b5-discussion/356741-common-heater-core-leak-why.html ). Now that the temperature is heading single digit and wintry mix comes and goes, I regret a bit that I did not...

    Fortunately, so far so good. I'm sure glad I stumbled upon this site. Great information. I particularly was excited to find a post with a fuse diagram since my car didn't come with a manual. Eventually I'll buy one, but just now this site is a wealth of info, thanks to all! There is one issue...

    Hi, I want to know if I buy an additional defroster button, if it can be installed below in one of the empty slots? This is the button I want to buy and add to the empty slot. Also, how do I take those empty slots off? VW B5 98-05 B5.5 Passat Rear Window Defrost Switch | eBay I want to use...

    Well, we've been having a bunch of rain down here in Texas. Since this is a rather rare phenomenon, I've actually had to use the defroster due to excessive fogging of the shield. Normally in cars, the A/C will automatically come and clear the shield in a few seconds. With the Passat, you have to...

    I am not sure if I did something, but when I push the rear defroster, it comes on and the light on the button goes on, then off in about 1 second. Is there a temperature limit? Its about 60 here right now but mornings the windows are all fogged. Did I turn something off with the vag lol? thanks

    My Passat defroster/heater runs as soon as I turn the ignition switch. The dash control panel for the heating/air conditioning does not light up. So the control panel is out, and the defroster stays on full blast. HOT. I think it's climatronic (it's automatic climate control) The heater-a/c...

    Hello, I have a early 01 (february)GLX 4motion 2.8v6 with a intermittent ac/defroster. i have pulled the codes from the Climatronic they are 313, 256 and 4f8. it looks to point to the air temperature sensor in the fresh air intake box behind the glove box (i think) but i also wanted to check the...

    I have a short circuit somewhere. As long as i keep the rear defroster button unplugged it doesn't trip the fuse. but when i do plug it in, the A/C unit shuts off and i have to replace the fuse. Sound familiar to anyone? Anybody know?

    Hi guys, My rear window defroster doesn't seem to work. The last time I turned it on it didn't seem to do anything. I took the rear shelf and pillars off and tested the voltage before and after the glass, and both sides read 12.5 volts. Am I missing something? Also, is the defroster...

    Does anyone know if or how you can remove the "defroster air outlet" according to Bentley or the "defroster vent" as I call it? I checked in the Bentley manual and they refer you to the Body Interior, Section 70 but I can't find anything on how to remove it there. It is shown in the exploded...

    I haven't had a working since I bought the car, and now tis the season. I checked all the fuses in the panel, and they were good. the 'hidden' fuse behind the gauge cluster was blown and I replaced it. the defrost still doesn't work. I push the button, no light and no frost removal. Any ideas...

    Hello Everyone, This is my first post. I've recently bought 2005 Passat GLS TDI, which I like a lot. I also found this informative and very addicting forum, which I've been reading ever since. I'm looking for some advice regarding a problem with the switch which directs air from the blower...
