  1. 2005 Passat Transmission sensor resistance values

    B5 Garage
    Howdy!! I recently bought a 05 Passat TDI (BHW engine, trans is a GMR, 01V or 5HP19FL whatever you prefer lol) with trans issues, VCDS code 17117 / P0733 - 3rd gear wrong ratio. It is accompanied by limb mode and also the tiptronic will not do anything nor do the measuring blocks show anything...
  2. knock sensor resistance

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Yesterday I changed the front O2 sensor and started it codes. This morning, I get a knock sensor 2 code --voltage too low, so I throw on the VCDS. Knock voltage for both 3 and 4 are at 3+vdc before start. After start they go to .234 vdc and stay there. Even when I rev up the engine...
  3. iat resistance ??

    B5 Garage
    What it the good resistance for the iat sensor on a 2001 1.8 t ?? And if anyone knows the resistance when ambient temp is 50*. Mine is showing 286* F.
  4. Does anyone know what resistance the o2 sensors' heater circuit is suppose to be?

    I have a 2002 passat v6
  5. Heated mirror resistance value?

    B5 Garage
    Hi folks, I have a 2000 1.8T GLS, ATW engine, stick, with 83K miles. If there is anyone who has working heated mirrors, and you happen to be cleaning the housing this weekend, can you please check the resistance you get with one of the terminals unplugged and post the result. Also, please...
  6. How can I check resistance in air bag connections? New clockspring still VAG fault

    B5 Garage
    Installed a new clock spring yesterday and hoped to reset my airbag fault code - resistance too high on drivers side. No luck - same message and the airbag warning light is on again. I can get the code cleared briefly but it returns. What is the procedure tracking down a problem that involves...
  7. Anyone have ambient air resistance # for IAT?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been having issues with my IAT lately. While trying to track down a mysterious misfire I looked into my IAT. It looked dirty so I cleaned it. One week later I got the p0113 (IAT sensor signal too high) code. Pulled the sensor and read an ambient resistance of ~1100 ohm. I don't know how far...
  8. What is the normal resistance range for the fuel level sensor?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi. My fuel gauge is not working at all (always at E). Read with VagCom and I believe it shows 510 Ohms resistance.. Opened the access door to the fuel tank assembly (under the carpet in the trunk). Measured resistance at the connector (contacts 3 and 2) - infinity. And I can make the fuel gauge...
  9. Secondary Air Pump Resistance????

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    If I measure the resistance between the two pins on the Secondary Air Pump on a 2002 GLX V6 Automatic, what should I read??? Or the normal reading My meter goes nuts, and looks to be a short, car is hard to start and running badly. Any one?? Thanks
  10. Help - 17522 - Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor: B1 S2: Internal Resistance too High

    B5 Garage
    I was wondering if anyone could help me diagnose my VAGCOM readout. Been getting horrible gas mileage so pulled to code listed below for the Oxygen sensor. I suspect I have to replace it. Is this doable without a hoist? Any input is much appreciated. Regards, Shawn Chassis Type: 3B - VW...
  11. Steering wheel resistance?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Started noticing this in past few weeks. Whenever I make a turn, and the wheel comes back to it's normal straight position, I can feel resitance in the steering wheel (when I have both hands on the wheel). Car drives and turns fine... any idea what's causing this?
  12. Airbag resistance too high/too low

    B5 Garage
    Hi All, I had an airbag fault lit on the dash for the last few days,after reading related problems and solution from this forum, tried to reset it myself using a vag-com but no success.The vag-com is reading resistance too high,verified this by using digital ohmeter and the reading is about 5...
  13. Reliability/Rust Resistance on 01.5+ Passat?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I have recently been looking at the 2001+5 Passat, what a nice car for the price. I like the fact that it's turbo, and made in Germany. However, I do know that VW's reliability hasn't always been good, but that could just be the cheaper models. My questions are, how...
  14. Wheel weight and rolling resistance.

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    So I have finally decided to replace the stock Adelaides wheels on my car. The reason why I have not done so already is because as ugly as they look, they are very lite (rumored to be 15.5lb) and coupled with the stock tires have low rolling resistance and swing weight. So here comes the...

  16. Resistance from the Brake Peddle. Cold/Snow suspected. HELP!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys. This morning was the first morning where there was any serious accumulation of snow on the highways/streets. As I pulled in to the parking lot of my office this morning, as I braked, I felt a resistance from my brake peddle. It feels like mechanical resistance, and is accompanied by...
  17. Path of least resistance to get in-dash CD ?

    Mobile Electronics
    2000 B5 Variant Monsoon single-DIN tape player, 6-cd changer in back. Problem: we like having the 6 disk changer, and we like having the tape player. However, we'd like to have a single CD slot in the passenger compartment as well. So we want tape and single CD in the DIN comparment(s), and...
