  4. P0441 and Gas Cap indicator light

    New Member Introductions
    Hi, my 2004 1.8t faults are showing a P0441 fault and a loose gas cap indicator. I have reset the P0441 and replaced the gas cap but both of them come back on intermittently.

    I am getting an "airbag fault" warning on the LCD and the airbag light stays on.

I suspect that may...
  8. 2017 SEL DRL dash indicator

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    HI, I've replaced my 2015 SEL TDI with 2017 SEL Premium TSI. The DRL indicator on the dash does not come on (day or night) but I can see it is there when light shines on it. In the 2015 DRL light would be on whenever DRLs where on and that way I knew if I was showing/using DRLs or full...

    Out of the blue my AWM auto wouldn't go into gear. You start it, shift into reverse, takes a second then clunks into reverse, put it in drive, then no gears at all. It just revvs like it's in neutral. The gear indicator on the infocenter has every gear selected (like a solid bar across the...

  14. FRONT INDICATOR LIGHTS 2000 passat not working

    B5 Garage
    Front indicator lights ( signal lights) are not blinking and indicator signal lights on the dash are flashing rapidly.

  17. HELP: Indicator Lights turning on by themself when I am away from car

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am having a very strange issue with my car. After I turn the car off, get out, and lock it, I would come back hours later and find my driver-side dashboard lights on. This is certainly draining the battery. Luckily, I caught it before it was completely drained! Anyways, I see that the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My Passat 2003 GLX multi-function Indicator works when my car/weather is cold, but fades out after 15 minutes of driving when the heater is on.
