    Just before Christmas I replaced the battery in my 2002 Passat GLX because it wouldn't start and when I checked the voltage it was reading at 10.3 V. I got the new one and right away it fixed the problem - alternating between 12.3 and 12.6 V after sitting overnight, starting right up even in the...

    Help please, I was installing a new after market stereo I got everything set up and it was working fine. I then was working on adding the steering wheel controls and in order to do that I had to add a splice connector into the vehicles stereo harness. Where I think I may have gone wrong is in my...

    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...

    My daughter has an 08 Passat 3.6 4Motion. Last week the EPB started giving her a fit. The red BRAKE dash indicator and the EPB switch would flash and chime. The fault code was (02432 - Supply Voltage for Left Parking Brake Motor (V282). I decided to Use the VAGCOM to "exercise" the parking brake...

    OK Friends, My ventures continue. While changing the o-rings on the coolant pipes (and thanks PZ, your instructions worked great) I quickly discovered the cracked supply pipe on the heater core, so off we went to the dash change and heater core replacement. The YouTube vid from AutoTech worked...

    I got the error codes below, I don't know if they are related to the problem or not. The car starts and runs fine, then the engine suddenly shuts off without any warning. It has only happened twice. Both times today. The first time when the car was in the garage and I had just started it and...

    Hey guys I have a problem...the plastic piece within the gear shifter of my 03 Passat has busted off, not allowing me to grab it and pull it up. My key is stuck in the ignition and I can't lock my doors. How do I get this problem because I cannot afford to take it in and get a whole new shift...

    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...

    Hello, been having this problem for a while now and it gets on my nerves... As the title says, all doors locks when I put my key in ignition position and unlocks as I turn it back. I already checked with VCDS that "lock the doors when reaching over 15mhp or kph thing" it didn't help. Also all...

    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...

    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...

    '00 Passat 4Mo Wagon, 2.8l, ATQ So, I watched a rather professional YouTube video on how to disconnect the harness connector from the ignition coil pack. I tried myself, and got different results. The recipe called for pliers and wiggling, thus I ended up cracking the bottom portion of the...

    I believe my ignition switch is broken. Ignition will not turn with out a great deal of force. It spins freely then and will not start but the radio will come on if left in a certain position. Unfortunately the steering wheel is locked out as well. Locked out straight and I can't unlock it...
