    I'm in a bind. I'm far from home and also far from any town. My 02 1.8T 360K went into limp mode this afternoon. I shut it off and it made my gear indicator normal again. The temperature dropped substantially and limp mode reappeared. Turning the car off and on didn't help. The one bright...

    Hi, i have had the above fault happen twice now. First time towing a caravan uphill and the second on cruising on the motorway. Events were approx 1 month apart. Both times resulted in limp mode and glow plug flashing. And fault can be cleared by turning engine off then on again. Is this a...

    Hey guys, I've had my Passat (09 highlife, CBBB) for years now and recently it had developed a misfire on cylinder 1 (scan result).

    I know limp mode can be caused by a number of things, but this was pretty sudden. I was backing out of my grandmother's driveway and nothing seemed unusual. About a second or two I put the car into drive, the car shook and I heard a loud clunk (confirmed by my father). All of the gear indicators...

    So about 2 weeks ago my 02 Passat 1.8T Wagon went into limp mode and stuck itself in 4th gear. Thanks to a couple other threads on this site i was able to narrow the culprit down to the transmission control module, and ordered a new one (with the exact same part number) off of eBay. New one came...
