  1. Horn honks when key is depressed to start the car

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I didn't see anything about it when I searched. I'm guessing its some sort of failure in the chassis control module or the ignition key area? More importantly, how do I kill the horn? The fuse box doesn't list a separate fuse for just the horn......is it on the anti-theft circuit? Back to...

  8. I'm getting depressed...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Why is it that every time I see another B5 on the highway and come pulling up it is almost always being driven by a woman in her late 50's, early 60's (no offense to 50-60 year old women of course... love ya Mom!) Needless to say, I don't feel the need to roll down the window and ask about what...
