    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello, We have an issue with starting car. The fob does nothing at all, steering wheel is locked. It’s Passat 2006, TDI 2.0. What happened: I came to a closed door. The fob didn’t work, and we opened only with manual key from the fob. The steering wheel was jammed by that time. We put the...

  8. Passat Ignition Key Cylinder Stuck

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The ignition key in my 05 Passat was getting more and more difficult to turn. I took the key lock assembly out to troubleshoot the problem. Now I can't get the key tumbler assembly back in. The tumbler assembly has a slot that needs to align with a slot in the housing. The only way to get the...

  10. Ignition Key Not Turning 2004 Passat GLX Automatic

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The ignition key has been getting more difficult to turn when the steering wheel is locked. I must pull on the steering wheel quite a bit and then the key turns nicely. If I shut the car off with the steering wheel unlocked, the key turns fine. This makes me believe that the ignition key...

  12. 2002 Passat GLX 4Mo Wagon- Places to find ignition active wires

    B5 Garage
    I will be adding a second battery with a relay isolator. I'd like to know of the locations of lines that are active only when the engine is on (not just accessory). It seems the norm is to put the relay isolator in the engine bay, so I'm guessing I'll have to tap into something in the fuse box...
