  1. EPC and loss of power

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I drove about 200 miles after fixing my melted AC switch (details here) which was caused by squished wires from a thermostat and timing belt job after the car overheated. Everything worked fine. Then the EPC light came there was a loss of power. Took a bit and was able to re-start and get...
  2. EPC light and no crank issue

    New Member Introductions
    The car I'm working on today is showing the EPC light on the dash and will not crank to start. I had the battery go dead on me, recharged it, car started once after that but now there is no solenoid click and the EPC light came on. I am looking for ideas as to what the problem might be and how...
  3. 2003 B5.5 2.8 EPC light crank no start new member

    New Member Introductions
    Hello all, my passat has been great until this polar vortex hit Chicago at the end of January. I don't know what happened, I went to start it and she wouldn't fire. I thought the battery might be low so I replaced it. No luck. Ended up replacing ESS, spark plugs and coil pack. Still nothing...
  4. 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...
  5. EPC P0221 Help

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I still can’t get a full understanding of how or why I keep getting engine workshop codes and epc/mil on my 2.0 tsi. I’ve repinned the throttle body per tsb twice and purchased a new throttle body and still get these faults. Since the fuel pressure fault is intermittent and the throttle position...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Looking at a 2003 Passat GLX Wagon for my 17 yr old. I was originally going to give him my 99 Passat sedan, but I can't find the damn water leak, and the interior is now starting to grow mold. (I dried the car out and then parked it in my storage unit to keep it out of the weather.) I don't want...
  8. EPC, Battery and CEL. Won't crank.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey, guys! I drove my new (to me) 03 Passat V6 (manual transmission) to the gas station the other day. I went inside for a coke and when I came out it wouldn't start. And it hasn't started since (got it towed home). I've done a little reading on potential causes, but thought I'd throw it out...

    B6 Garage
    Hi there, I recently had my 2.0T 09 CCTA passat stall out at idle multiple times with no CEL. I pulled a few codes and booked an appointment at the mechanic.

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hi I'm in desperate need of guidance. I bought a 2012 vw Passat about 5 months ago with 60k miles and since put on 10,000 miles as I drive a lot. Love the car but a week ago it started spewing power steering fluid everywhere around the reservoir and we concluded that until we could see where it...

    New Member Introductions
    So, after awhile of being without a vehicle (about 7 months) and taking taxis everywhere I go (which could rack up to $40+ a day) a buddy of mine sold me a 2004 Passat 1.8 turbo 5-speed. He told me the previous owner put a new fuel pump on before he bought it. Also told me not to beat on her and...

    B6 Garage
    I purchased a 2009 Passat less than a month ago. When I did the test drive, the warning "Check engine Service Now" came on and I was unable to accelerate above 20mph. The dealership replaced the throttle body and after about 2 weeks of having the car the same light came on (no trouble...

    Driving home work the other day when I got a message on the DIC to STOP. I pulled over, shut off the engine, popped the hood. Coolant was spraying out from the bottom of the reservoir tank. Apparently the tank had developed a crack in it. Got it towed home. Bought a new tank and installed it...

    B5 Garage
    Here's an update: I replaced the DV and changed the 4 vac lines written up in the information base (intake to N249, N249 to DV, intake to FPR and N112 to Combi valve) to address the 17705 code. I cleared all DTCs and here's the post-DV change out scan. Still a head scratcher. Any thoughts...

  20. Epc

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 03 Passat 1.8T epc light comes on sometimes usually after car stalls out or after a long start. Doesn't seem to effect the way the car runs as opposed to when the light is not on. Codes are P0102,P0322,P0299. Don't know where to start. A mechanic friend of mine told me I could clean the...
