  1. Problem - Odometer displaying 7rA433

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Anyone know why the odometer would display 7rA433? At the same time, the clock resetted. I was using VAG-COM to disable the TMPS. Could I have inadvertently "broken" something? Scanning showed a fault with the distance tracking system. I turned that bit back on. Did not fix display. Also...
  2. Odometer Ilumination

    Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    Hello, first post, 95 Passat VR6. The illumination went out in the odometer section of the board. Needless to say not critical, but it bothers me. Taking out the dashboard seems like a PITA. Any other way of doing this without spending all day taking it apart? Also does anyone know of any...

  4. 2001 Odometer and other general ???'s

    New Member Introductions
    Im interested in purchasing a 2001 Passat. The dealer claims that it only has 30,800 miles on it. I checked carfax and from 2001 to 2005 there were no checks, so the mileage went from 0 miles, to 30,500. After that, it had very few miles driven on it. Im wondering if it is actually 30,500...

    When I had my 2002 Jetta, the Odometer was on top of the trip meter, on my Passat they are reversed? (odometer on bottom) WTF?
  7. Clock / Trip Odometer Switch Broken?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, I go to reset my clock for daylight savings a few minutes ago and the knob just spins left / right without stopping. Still resets the trip odometer if pushed straight in, but no resistance to either side when rotating. I tried pulling out gently and turning, as well as pushing in and turning...
  8. Odometer coolness

    Off-Topic Forum
    Uh, just wanted to say, i was driving my passat home last night and the trip odometer which i've been using to monitor miles driven since i bought the car read 1111.1, which i personally thought was the coolest thing ever. Thats all. It just looked really freaking sweet.
  9. Odometer kinda broken?

    B5 Garage
    I just bought a 98 Passat 1.8T w/ 65K miles. The odometer display only half works. It looks like part of the display is broken. I am wondering if there is any way to replace just the LCD display, and not the whole cluster(so I keep the mileage the same). If I need to replace the whole...

  12. Odometer jump?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, We just bought our V6 GLX a week ago. It rolled off the lot at 1856 miles. Just a week later, the odometer says 4100 miles. What's wrong you may ask. :crazy: We haven't come even close to putting 2000 miles on this car. I figure no more than 500. The car spent today in the...

  14. Anyone reprogram their Odometer?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was just wondering if anyone here has reprogramed their odometer to adjust for tire size change? I was looking at programmers online and I was curious if anyone used one, like the ones on ebay. Also is it possible with the Vag Com? Is anything special needed? Thanks Zack

  17. Odometer trick exposed

    Anything Auto
    I was at a Dodge dealer buying a minivan yesterday(!), and while filling out the paperwork, one of the sales manager told me about a odometer fraud they had exposed the week prior. A guy with a Dodge Ram truck had warranty work done earlier in the week in Texas, prior to a road trip to...
