    Hello All, I have an 02 Passat GLX Wagon with some transmission problems. Here is the background. It has the tiptronic auto trans.238,000 miles, V6. The problem is very unusual. The original problem was that the trans (I think) went into limp home mode. Park, Reverse, Neutral all work well but...

    So for the past month my 99 AEB has been going into limp mode every morning for work. It would occasionally do it when it was cold but now it's doing it constantly. I know how to get it out of limp mode but don't know what's causing it. Anyone have any solutions or know what might be causing it?

    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...

    I was driving home from work as usual and the car seemed completely normal. But then I stopped at an intersection and the gear indicator turned solid red and the transmission seems to be stuck in 3rd. I pulled over and looked everything over no leaking dsg fluid or anything abnormal I turned it...

    I replaced my starter. Removed two connectors on the oil pan to allow the removal. Disconnected the battery prior to the task for two days. When I completed the replacement the vehicle started fine. I didn’t drive it but let it run for 20 minutes. Shut down the car and tried to start it and...

    While my 2003 VW Passat 1.8 was in my slopped driveway my sunroof drains clogged and flooded floor causing TCM to corrode. It took quite some time to figure this out so by the time I pulled up carpet TCM was complete gone. I obtained one online but car still was sticking limp mode. After a...

    Hi all, My B5 pasat 2001, 1.9TDI AVF engine is going into overboost, sometimes it enters limp mode, sometimes not. But looking at the logs, overboost is there for sure.

    Hi there, I recently had my 2.0T 09 CCTA passat stall out at idle multiple times with no CEL. I pulled a few codes and booked an appointment at the mechanic. Codes were fuel mix and MAF implausible signal and oxygen (lambda) too rich/intermittent, ECM Power relay opens too. The next day i had...

    Hi all! I have a 2005 Passat wagon I bought last spring (90k on the clock). Since then, I have been battling with an endless limp mode struggle. I have made some ground on the limp mode and my car is somewhat driveable but the limp mode still rears it's ugly head about half the time I drive...

    The transmission was in limp mode (PRND432 all lit up) when I started the car early in the morning, but would be normal if I simply restarted the car. The transmission would also started normal during the day. I am really puzzled by this, don't know whether it has anything to do with the cold...

    I have a 2003 4Motion wagon, 2.8L 30V, automatic. The PCV started leaking a couple days ago, giant vacuum leak out the vent looking port on the side of the hockey puck PCV valve. I taped over the vent to stop the vac leak and that sort of helps but it still leaks and idles rough. If I pop the...

    So, here's the rundown. 2003 Passat 1.8t automatic. It started to accelerate extremely slow, and I mean slow. You can hear the engine rev higher when you press the gas, but you get nowhere fast. Engine light came on, went and got it read, came up with a p0441, EVAP system incorrect purge flow. I...

I'm at 150,000 miles and have really had minimal issues until this came up. So I have the EPC light in as well as...

    Hey VWers Looking for some advice / suggestions from any with more know how than I which is probably most of you :) So I'm pretty sure my wagon is in Limp Mode by the gears in the dash all being highlighted black. It happened the other day and I didn't pay it much mind as it soon went away...

    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...
