    I've got a 2005 1.8T. During routine inspection of the disk brake pads, I saw on the left side that a connector was half way out of its socket as it seems that a stone damaged it. I pulled it apart, cleaned the male and female connectors, push it slowly together and taped it up to prevent...

    Simple question- Does anyone know if I can replace just the red LCD display in the gauge cluster? Mine is hit or miss whether you can read it. I could replace the gauge cluster altogether but was just wondering if anyone knew. Thanks

    Hi, So first off I know some of you make think I am crazy for considering this, but I needed a new project. So I am wondering whether it's possible to create an Arduino powered colour LCD to replace the current red Full FIS display in the cluster. Now I am thinking if I can figure out the...

    Hoping to get some help on this annoying issue. I have an '07 Passat 2.0T with 120k miles. The "Stop Engine Low Oil Pressure" warning light comes on after about 20-30 minutes of driving. I checked the oil level and it is where it should be on the dipstick reading. This same issue happened last...

    Hello fellow Passat owners. I just bought a 2004 1.8t sedan a few weeks ago. I have a similar issue that others have posted about, but not quite the same. The top part of the first line isn't lighting up, the rest is fine. It doesn't appear to be the heat issue that some have posted about...

    My '06 2.0T dash display suddenly started showing a door open on driver side while door was shut tight. Nothing works on the door including windows, door lock, trunk and gas cover releases, and interior lights stay on while driving. Read up on symptoms and tried spraying door latch mechanism...

    Recently bought myself a 2002 1.9TDI Passat with automatic gearbox. A few days ago noticed that the display on the dashboard wont show Park gear. All the others are shown but when I move it to Park the display stays on R. The gear itself is working fine. What should I do?

    04 V6 Passat Yesterday I noticed the display readout that shows which gear I'm in and the MPG and what not started to fade out. Outside temp was about 70. After opening the windows and it cooling off a bit the display went back to normal. When it's cooller out there doesn't seem be an issue...

    So I'm sure this has been answered before but I ran a quick search and couldn't find anything. I'm having trouble with the back-light of the dashboard display in my 2002 1.8t. Basically it's not bright enough, and on some bright days I can barely see it at all. Has this always been an issue with...

    Ok, turned ignition on, display on dashboard was made up of odd lines instead of coherent symbols (mileage clock etc.). The only light that came on was the traction control. Fuel and temp display not working either. Turned car over, it stops after a couple of seconds (immobilizer issue?)...

    It's the one in the middle that fades it's words in the heat and looks better when it's cold out, you know the one. Well last week it started beeping at me as I was driving. Every beep it would turn on red and then go off. Now it's off and hasn't come back on. Not even with headlights on or...

    Any ideas as to why the direction (N,S,E,W etc.) shows in the top left hand side of the MFD display inconsistently? Some days its there, other days, it ain't. The times it is there, it disappears after a distance has been driven in the same direction for an indeterminate time and doesn't come...
