  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've read other threads by people with similar issues, but to no avail. That being said, when I start the car, there aren't any codes thrown relating to the braking system. However, normally within a couple minutes of driving, you can feel the ABS engage for a second when slowly braking (not...

    ABS is engaging on very light stops, pretty much any stop. Hear a high pitched chatter and the pedal pulsates. Where should I be looking, at having the module rebuilt, or is the issue at the wheel sensors?
  3. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Back in the states after 18 months in Europe. My 2001 passat wagon as been sitting the entire time and I'm trying to get her started. I put a new battery in today but the starter doesn't engage. I just hear a few clicks...not sure if it's the solenoid or a relay. Any advice on what and where I...

    162K miles on the original clutch, no slipping, no chatter, smooth engagement. GIAC-X since ~40k. Again, no issues with driveability and I've never been a clutch dragger like some folks I've ridden with, LOL. Recently I've noted that as I release the clutch pedal while engaging the next gear, I...

    I have an 09 Passat 2.0t with an auto trans "kgu" code. About 200 miles ago I swapped In a different motor. The car ran fine for 200 miles and today about a mile into my trip while accelerating up hill the transmission no longer engaged the engine and just revved like it was in neutral. Park...
  6. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been looking through the forums and I can't seem to find an answer to this problem... Only on gradual, left turns when I reach about 50kms/h (ie. a highway on-ramp), my ASR light starts flashing and I can no longer accelerate, until I hit a straight-away. It doesn't flash any other times...

    My AC doesn't work on my 2001 Passat GLX wagon V6 4motion. I checked what fuses were easily visible, checked line pressure, moved the compressor by hand, so it's not seized. Dug into the dash to look at relays (what a pain!) and found an empty spot. Everything that I saw online mentioned...

    I know the door locks are supposed to automatically lock after you exceed 10 MPH, but mine do it every time I go over 10 MPH. I might be crazy but I dont remember them doing it every time when I first got the car. Am I crazy does this happen to everyone and I just didnt notice it initially...

    The vehicle is a 2003 Passat, V6, GLS, FWD, with manual climate control. When I turn on the A/C, I hear a relay click the instant I turn on the A/C. But the compressor clutch does not engage the compressor. Then, exactly 10 seconds after I turned on the A/C, the engine stutters just a slight...

    The control stalk on for my highbeams seems to be out, you know how you push it forward and it locks, well mine does not do that, also when you pull it back it does not temporarily engage the high beams. Any suggestions, or imput? Bulbs are good, low beams, DRLs, and turn signals are all...

    So I have had a boatload of European vehicles but every one presents it's own special set of problems. I just picked up a 2000 B5 wagon on the cheap and the girl I bought it from stated that she thought it needed a clutch as diagnosed by her "friend". Car is fairly clean with high miles and...

    My Tiptronic transmission's electronic module located under the passenger floor mat got wet during a rain storm because the window was open. As I drove home from work, the transmission got worse as I drove, but I made it home. I had a transmission shop replace the module. They made no...
  13. Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    I posted about this sometime ago on the petrol b5.5 section. Maybe the TDI gearbox is a bit different. Does any of you have any issue engaging 2nd gear and sometimes 1st? On my car it take "some" force to engage these. Especially from 1st to 2nd. There is millions of tonnes of oil in the...

    Has anyone else made this same goof?? I'm assuming that I forgot to plug something in when reassembling the nose. Is there one connection in particular that I should check to troubleshoot this problem? A/C was working fine before I replaced the timing belt. I don't usually use my A/C, but it was...

    Let me start by saying this happens sometimes, not always. I prefer to back into parking spaces because it is easier and safer come time to drive away. Recently I have found that after I put the shift selector into R and lightly press the gas, the engine gains RPM and the car does not move...

    This is one I just noticed for the first time last night, as I drove around with windows down and radio off ('98 V6, 113k miles, original clutch) When starting out at very low RPM in 1st--or rolling through a stop sign in 2nd--I hear a little bit of a light metallic rattling sound coming from...

    Have a 99 Passat. I was going about 90MPH and the A/C stopped cooling. The Car has plenty of freon and the relay clicks when I turn the AC on but the clutch on the compressor does not engage. Any ideas what might stop the AC clutch fron not going on? Thanks in advanced, Mike

    Hello, I've got a 2002 W8 Sedan, and I recently replaced the right front axle with a re-manufactured OEM part. I removed the wheel speed sensor before replacing the axle and made sure it was inserted all the way when I was done. Now my ABS is coming on around 5 mph when I'm gradually...
  20. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    OK, this is a strange one. For the past year or two, whenever the radio is off and the windows are up (ie, when I have passengers :crazy: ), I can hear a faint creaking from the ashtray/shift boot when I engage the clutch in 1st or 2nd gear. My guess would be the tranny mounts might have...
