  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello everyone. I have an 04 v6 GLX. I have been chasing P codes all over the place. It started with Mixtures too lean, Faulty MAF, Random Misfire, etc. I have replaced plugs, wires, valve cover gaskets, all seals, timing belt, double and triple checked timing and cam positions, all breather...

    Ugh... High and low side seem normal 30 and 100. Relay works, clutch engages, a/c light turns on, a/c fan doesn't work. But hasn't for the past year. Still used to get cold air. Not any more. I tried jumping the fan... Still not working. 13+ volts at the plug by steering pump...

But when I pull the door handle nothing goes, handle pulls but door is...

    Another car with window and lock issues. Locks have a mind of their own. Locks and unlocks while driving, sometimes works fine. Had my 2002 Passat scanned and no smoking gun. Got this readout on CCM: Address 46: Central Conv. Labels: 1C0-959-799.lbl Part No: 1C0 959 799 C...

    I thought for sure I could tackle this on my own. Its escaped me though. All electronics in the car are operational. I have watched all the door groups in VCDS and the weirdest thing occurs. They are online for awhile, fully operational, and then they start going offline/online without rhyme or...

    flasher goes randomly and trunk release on the dash or the tailgate itself seems to be acting up.

    So, I replaced the rear window/regulator plastic pin a while ago and everything went fine--everything worked like a charm following all the help on this site. Window went up and down using both the driver's control panel and the passenger's window button. Lock worked fine with the remote...

    First post. Wish I was loving on my wife's Passat, not so much right now. Need direction. I bought a 2001 GLX 4motion 2.8 in March 2012. It ran fine for a year and when I decided to put it up for the winter(November), after sitting in the garage for a week, it would not start. Trickle...

    Hi, I've searched the internet and the usual forums but I can't find anyone with the same problem. I'm new here but this looks like the biggest Passat forum so I hope to have more success than elsewhere. I bought a 2003 B5.5 SE TDI 130 for the wife last month. I noticed that none of the...

    Car is 01 1.8t auto. Was told it ran fine when parked a year ago. Bought it from the original owner. At first it would not start at all. Found blown ABS fuse, and the fuse at the back of the Monsoon radio was blown. After this it started and runs fine. Now CEL / MIL is on. Blinkers don't work...

  13. Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I have a 2011 Passat CC GT with I believe the 315 radio. The sat nav does not have a CD being all in memory. I reckon the maps are at least a year out of date, with missing roads, incorrect speed limit indications and sometimes very strange route planning. I have it set for fastest journeys...

    This seems weird to me but maybe someone has seen this before? I arrived home from a visit to my dealer to get a few things done. I had a CEL ('01 1.8T), which threw up a couple of misfires codes that the mechanic thought were due to the coils and they were going to replace them under recall...

    Ok I bought a 99 Passat with the 2.8L V6 and 5 speed manual tranny. First off, it RUNS great but you'd never know it due to all the electrical problems. First problem. I can be setting at a light and my tachometer glitches and dives up and down, even going below ZERO yet the car engine is...

    I searched for this already but i only found threads about CCM damage due to water intrusion. I don't have 95% of the issues related so i doubt thats what it is. here's my issues. I never really took note until now, but since I bought the car, I haven't had any sort of door ajar light ever...

    So my car has acted funny over the last 4 months. Two times I haven't been able to start the car. I take of the positive connection for the battery for a second, reattach, and the car starts back up, all I do is reset the clock. Anyways, it's acting up more. Specifically... 1) The windows...

    I've been reading all the posts on CCM issues but my case doesn't quite fit any of them. A couple of days ago I noticed the interior lights blinking on and off a few times shortly after leaving the driveway. The next day the power windows hesitated going up and down. Today the red security...

    Yesterday something strange occurred: front passenger door will not unlock using the remote or driver central controls. It will unlock using the pass. door lock/unlock button. Ditto for the window but it won't work at all (no button will work). Any similar stories/clues? Sounds expensive and...

    It's only been a month since, my last electrical problem. This one is different. Car starts 98% of the time. Every so often, nothing. Electrical system completely shuts down. No odometer reading on the LCD, no dome lights, radio, power locks, power windows. Happened twice on my...
