    I went to the car and popped in some LED's for the front blinker bulb, and I got nothing. I know its probably because the voltage is so low that the computer thinks its a blown bulb, which would require resistors but I wanted to ask around in case one of you peeps have already done this. LED's...

    I only had setting number 4 working so determined it was the resistor causing the issue afrer reading many posts and watching videos. I went ahead and ordered a replacement (albeit from Hong Kong) and have installed it. All settings work (1, 2, 3 & 4) but when using 1, 2 or 3 setting the green...

    Hi, I changed out the coil pack, wires and plugs on my v6 the other day, went well probably the plugs but, she's surely got more pep :-) While doing this i noticed the small electrical part that is mounted on the coil pack stud was connected via a crimp connector. Looks like it was a salvage...

    Hi. I need some help please. I have been going in circles with this issue. My Aux fan runs on high as soon as the A/C button is on (with ignition and fan sw on). B5.5 2003 Passat with manual A/C. Circuit diagrams I am working with are in the link. imgur: the simple image sharer I have...

    I am in the process of installing the SAI delete block off plates and have a few questions. Can I just keep the Solenoid installed and not worry about a resistor. As for the vacuumed lines going in to the sai Solenoid, I'm guessing I just remove the tee where the supply feed lines ties in and...

    2002 Wagon GLX, Climatronic. I've got the glove box out, looking at the blower motor. Where is the blower motor resistor located at? I have no blower at any speed. From my searching, looks like the resistor may be the culprit, but I can't find the damn thing. Help a newbie out. Thanks.

    Hello My passat B6 air conditioner's fan stopped to work on 1,2 and 3 and now just works on full blast (4). would you please tell me what's OEM part number of resistor pack that controls motor's speed and where is better I buy it from. I live in Montreal. :) Thank you Touareg

    quick note for step 3: to remove, push on the tab in the direction of the arrow. The resistor will then slide slightly, then you can pull it out. the tab on the resistor, it's not a locking tab of any sort

    so i know the leds burn out fast. in an attempt to delay that, i'd like to put in a resistor to make sure there only getting there recommended 12v. does anyone know what ohm, watts etc i need.... basicly when i go up to home depot or radio shack what am i looking for? tia everybody.

    I read that the DRL resistor could be easily bypassed. This is handy if you install HID headlights, want to retain DRLs, but don't want to bother with a separate relay harness wired to the battery. Of course, simply unplugging this will also disable DRLs, so it's also an alternative to removing...

    A few weeks ago, my blower fan stopped working. When it stopped, I had trouble moving the speed dial past 2, but then something gave and it was able to go through all the speeds, but none of them functional. This makes me think that the controls are shot, but the fan will randomly turn on when...

    :thumbup:Hello ..... I have passat 2002... Sparco seats(no airbags), custom made frames ... only problem - airbag light- on the dash board, .. i found retail that sales sub-frames for a6 or passat ... but for about £150.. with is more than i've paid for my seats... sales-man says that those...

    Where the hell can i buy small quantities resistors? Mouser wants $8 to ship 4 resistors. Also, radioshack does not carry the resistors I need. Is there anywhere I can purchase 20 or less resistors at a reasonable price? Or is it as accurate to wire in multiple 5% tol resistors in series?

    My fan blower stopped working the other day i am getting it diognosed on thursday to see if it actually is the blower motor or what, does anyone know how involved the replacement would be? is it something I could do on my own ? i am not real good with repairs but if its not too hard I may be...

    When installing aftermarket seats w/o side airbags, this is what you need to avoid airbag fault codes. WARNING: working on airbags is dangerous. This mod is for the connector on the harness coming out of the floor (that the airbag connector from the seat plugs into), not for the airbag...
