    For some reason, my info center lights are all lit up intermittently. Seems more likely when the car is cold. Any thoughts on what might be happening?

  10. Red LCD display message. Never saw this one

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    hi guys, I think I got my strange computer stuff ironed out by replacing the alternator on my 2001.5 v6 with automatic. I have a message in the red LCD display that shows XX min then 1 to the right in a red box. The XX seems to be a minute timer. I am the original owner and she has 239 K on...

    I've never owned a European car before. Actually I've only owned ford, gmc, and Pontiac. I am seriously in love with my 2002 passat now! Ido have a few questions though, and I can't seem to find the answers in my giant manual! There is a thing underneath the steering wheel, and I can pull...
  12. Any updates to fixing the fading LCD?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been searching for a while and I've probably read every thread on this issue. I am wondering if anyone has found some other way of fixing the fading LCD (other than sending the cluster away to have it re-soldered, or replacing it with ... is it a W8 cluster?). I haven't seen an...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Greetings. I just purchased a 2004 B5.5 and I did not receive a manual with it. I'm having difficulty figuring out the center LCD screen (the red one).

  16. Full FIS LCD Replacement, I'm going to give it a try

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know everyone says it's impossible, you have to have super special skills, you must have very precise surgery skills etc etc etc. As shown on another thread here I retro fitted a W8 cluster to my car and to my disappointment the LCD fades out just like my wife's B5.5. I ordered a new...
