    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2001 B5.5 1.6 Petrol.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  6. Locking while "warming up"

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I have a 2013 Passat, my old buick I could start and let it warm up because the key and locking fob were separate pieces. The Passat has that idiotic "switchblade key/fob" (only thing I hate about the car). Is there a way I am missing to start it and get the heater going and lock it while it is...

Then I noticed my drivers door wont lock when I hit the...
