  1. Fuel gauge quit

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    The Check Engine light came on in my 07 3.6 during a cold snap here in Chicago. The car had sat for some time with less than 1/4 tank of gas, so I assumed water in the fuel. Took the car to fill it up and poured in a bottle of dry gas. Check engine light went away, but gas gauge no longer...
  2. 2012 Passat Heater fan quit for the second time

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    So I bought the car used last November with 25k miles. Within a month, the heater fan quits, so I take it in and the dealer replaced the fan, said it was bad. Great, no problems until now. I take it to the dealer, and due to the mileage I have on it says its not under warranty anymore. So i...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just pulled it out and replaced it with a junkyard special - still no pump. Seems to make a clicking sound but no pump sound or vibration like I would expect. I put everything back together, attached all the hoses, filled the reservoir with some fluid and still no pump action. The wiper...

  12. '03 Outside Mirrors & Heater Quit Working

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Don't know when, because I don't adjust them much, but some time in the last few months. I looked for a fuse, and in the left dash fuse panel the fuse card shows a "heated mirror", but there isn't any fuse there - not even terminals to connect to a fuse. I find the electrical section of my...
  13. DRL quit working

    B5 Garage
    I don't have any DRL when the parking brake is released. All other lights function normally. I have read a few threads about similar, but not identical, problems. After reviewing the wiring diagram provided in an old thread(awesome archives), I believe that the relay is the culprit. I pulled the...
