    I am thinking about buying a 2006 Passat as a project car. The steering wheel does not move, which is the micro switches in the lock module. However, when I put the key in the ignition and push it in, nothing happens. The radio does not work, the starter doesn't even click, and I can't use the...

    FIRST CONCEPT: I was wondering the other day, the blue cap on the windshield washer tank is so hard to open & it gets in the way when you pour new stuff into the tank. So I figure you could refill it by wiring the pump to work in reverse and suck in new fluid from the sprayer nozzles on the...

    So I was out at Raceline USA today in Temple City CA. I wanted to get an idea of what my stock 2001 Passat has as far as power goes, it is a 5 speed fwd 1.8t with 141,436 at the start of the session.

    2002 Passat GLX 4mo Wagon 2.8L 30V So my car never had cold A/C since I got it, and instead pretty much just always blew warm/hot air regardless of settings on the Climatronic. It throws a code for the fresh air intake temperature sensor, so maybe the car always thinks I needed heat. Fine...
