    My 2017 TSI sounds reminder alarms for most everything but I can turn off engine with the 'push button' while car is in any gear or neutral, I can get out of car with key in pocket, and walk away, but no audible alarm or reminder is given. Why? Defect in ignition maybe?

    Hello, my Passat B7 2.0 TDI 140 hp doesn't go beyond 2500 at full acceleration in neutral gear. Can anyone confirm if this is normal?

    I had the automatic transmission switching issue which gave me the check engine code P0706 and required the transmission range switch replacement (I was able to repair the switch I had, without spending $200 for a new one). After 3 days of driving with the switch repaired and Tiptronics...

    As mentioned, the car will shift down to neutral, but wont go further. When its running, reverse is fine, neutral is fine, stepping on the brake works fine to release the shifter out of park, it just wont go into drive. Feels like it wants to go, but will snap something if I force it. ( freakin...

My car 1999 Passat B5 1.8T with a manual transmission .. the car is running well without any problems in idle while in stationary condition and idling at 850~900 RPM and in a steady condition.

    Hi everyone. I have been using Passatworld for 3 years now but have never become a member. I changed that today when I searched and searched on an issue I have without finding a straight answer, especially for the B5.5. I've been on tdiclub, vwvortex, etc. and cannot find exactly what I'm...

    Hey guys, wondering if anyone knows how to diagnose a bad neutral safety switch? I'm getting no current to my starter at the little wire that runs from the ignition switch. Getting a solid 12v+ from the main battery terminal. My 2002 V6 wont start after putting in a new battery and ignition...

    Hey guys I recently got my tune from gonzo and I'm loving it but today for some reason my forge 007 DV sounded incredibly loud and it sounds as if there is a leak or crack somewhere because even if my gauge goes to 10 vac and I let off the throttle it'll still make a shhhh sound. I thought it...

    I am having issues with putting the car into first gear from neutral. It is difficult sometimes. I can overcome the problem when I place the car in 2nd and then move to 1st. From that point, shifting is easy. It will go in all gears like butter as long as I continue to keep the clutch pedal...

    I have noticed my car has been dying when i switch it in neutral. The RPMs will drop very low and it will go back and forth between two numbers and then drop and die. I was going out of town down a big hill so i put it in neutral and it turned off, so the power steering went out and the engine...

    So just recently my 99 GLS 5 Speed's shift knob has gone off center. While in neutral the knob seems to lean to the passenger side ever so slightly. Just enough though that if I only push up, it doesn't go into 3rd and gets stuck in-between 3rd and 5th. I have to grab it and pull it slightly...

    I have a 2007 Passat 2.0T FSI... When the car is warm and left in park or neutral the idle / rpm's go up and down uncontrollably, engine light is on, codes are P0171 and P0507. I have gotten suggestions from PCV to Throttle body... Has anyone dealt with this problem with a sure fix?? Trying to...

    Hello all... I have a 99 B5 Passat V6 with a Tiptronic auto trans. The car will not shift past neutral. The shifter assembly has been replaced because, well... for lack of a better desription, it imploded. Even with the shifter disconnected I can only get 3 "Clicks" (P-R-N) out of the cable...

    So my neutral safety switch is shot and the car really isn't worth the cost of replacement so I was looking into bypassing it. Does anyone have a guide on how to do this or is it just the same as most vehicles? I've had two mechanics say I can't do it, but another two say I can. The only way...

    well now that I have everything else working well I'm starting to tackle other things. As a side effect to correcting my timing and such my car has this wicked vibration when in gear and only at a stop. moving it is hard to detect if the vibration is occuring. This is not a stumble it is a...

    I have a 2003 GLS 1.8T and about 155,000 miles on it. MY problem is after a long 7 hour trip to Iowa and back, when I shift into first gear and give it a little gas it pops back into neutral. I know the transmission is getting old but Ive never had problems with it slipping. It doesnt always pop...
