  1. Limp mode constantly

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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?
  2. Transmission Limp Mode

    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.
