    After being parked in garage for a couple of months, the car is NOT moving in reverse. Any pointers what might be causing the issue? Haven't yet had a chance to scan the car for codes with VAGcom, but plan to do this week.

    I had this posted under new introductions but was getting no responses. I've been beating my head against the wall :banghead: trying to find the reverse switch on my 98 (B5) 1.8T with FWD automatic. I've looked in ALLDATA and it says left side of the transmission right above the left drive...

    I've been beating my head against the wall :banghead: trying to find the reverse switch on my 98 (B5) 1.8T with FWD. I've looked in ALLDATA and it says left side of the transmission right above the left drive flange. There is nothing there on my Passat. The switch is a simple screw-in type...

    In the midst of a diesel 5 speed swap. Forgot to grab the car harness side of the reverse sensor plug...doh...and have already scrapped the donor car. The 5 speed has the sensor plug on the drivers side and then the wire extends across to the pass side where it goes inside the transmission...

    Instrument cluster light came on and info saying right back up light out. Called up Auto Zone to get LED replacements for both. Installed them, they both work. However, now the diagnostic system is telling me BOTH lights are out when they clearly work. Is it some sort of computer reprogramming...

    Hi everyone, Last night, I pulled into a friend's very steep (25%) driveway, and when I tried to back out, I could not get the car to shift into reverse. Double clutching didn't help and I coasted down and shifted into the forward gears no problem. Today, I had a repeat of the problem, and...

    Hoping someone can guide me through this. I just purchased a 17 SEL Premium. I was able to migrate almost all of the interior LEDs from the 14 SEL without any problems. The trunk light is a different style in the 17s now. I already spoke to deAutokey about this. I also ordered the LED reverse...

    Hi, I'm pretty much finished retrofitting my auto-dimming mirror and rain sensor to my RHD Passat B5. The only wire left to connect is the reverse signal wire which will deactivate the dimming automatically if I put the car into reverse. Can someone tell me where the reverse signal wire is on...

    04 SDN V6 Auto 4-motion I have a repair manual. My socket housing only uses 3 bulbs, odd considering my 02 used 4. Anyways, I checked fuse 31 (15 amp) and its good. I get power when the ignition is turned on. I put the vehicle in reverse and the lights do not light up. I checked the Blue/ Red...

    Hi guys, hope to get some help. First time owning a Vw, bought it with a bent valve, rebuilt the head and runs perfect. If you put it in Drive it shifts fine, as soon as you put it in reverse it clunks hard into gear after a delay and all the lights on the shift indicator light up and stay lit...

    04 Passat V6 Triptonic 165.000 miles As some of you may know I have been having occasional limp mode issues but they are corrected when I shut the car off then restart. I have noticed that it's basically happening in reverse only. The past 2 days it's done it almost every time :(. Shut the car...

    2005 passat wagon gls 1.8 4mo. Tranny works perfectly fine except when you put it in reverse, there is enough of a hesitation that I occasionally get caught hitting gas before full gear change is made, get that hard chuck. I have only had car for MO the or so. Great car. Any ideas? Was...

    Hi, I hv a 05 passat wagon 1.8l T 5spd Automatic (tiptronic) w/93k miles, and the reverse gear is slipping under load i.e. more when it's cold or back uphill. Any idea how to diagnose and assess whether it is worth the repair? The shop said the ATF was black but I am hesitant to do anything...

    So I was about to go to work and got the pleasant surprise of the car not moving after starting. After starting the car will only move in reverse fairly hesitantly. When in drive or any of the other gears it just revs up same as if it was in neutral. After a bit of this it goes into limp mode...

    This usually only happens when I'm on a hill shifting into reverse but it was happening in my mostly level driveway today. It's just really hard to shift it and it makes a loud noise and feels weird shifting it. And my RPM drops and my car shutters a little between shifting into reverse...

    So, I have a 2001 B5.5 Passat 1.8T with an automatic transmission and 180k miles that's having problems going into reverse. Issues with reverse in the ZF5HP19 seems to be a recurring problem around here and on the forums for Audi's and BMW's that use them. Here are my symptoms. When the car is...

    Hey fellas, Recently I got my my tires rotated and balanced. Had the mechanic check the brakes and everything - the brakes needed to be done soon but not quite yet (he said next oil change and thats right around the corner). A few days later I noticed when I was going in reverse I turned the...
