    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I'm new to VW, just got a CPO 2015 Passat, 1.8T, auto. It has 25k miles and had it for 2 weeks.

  3. B5.5 - Door lock cylinder spinning, keyless entry defective, trunk lock rusted shut.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, anyone got any clever ideas on how I can get into my car? Tried using a wirehanger and while that initially worked, I managed to lock the car by accident again and I can't get it to open. Thanks Volkswagen for not having a passenger side lock :thumbup:
  4. Rear interior light won't shut off - 2016 Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    OK, noob owner, and I am sure this is something really simple, but I can't figure it out. The rear interior light will not turn off while I am driving. It does shut off by itself eventually after I park the car. What am I missing?

  8. Passat Estate tailgate wont shut

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Merry Christmas. The tailgate on my 2006 Passat Estate won't completely shut. It will shut and stay closed but it is loose and the MFD shows the tailgate is open.

  12. New Member - Curious - Can key fob of CC shut all windows outside like B5

    New Member Introductions
    As you know on B5 Passat using key in door lock & holding in lock/unlock position will close/open windows. Since a CC has no actual lock - how is this accomplished - Its a friends car & I don't have access to manual, he is missing this feature as his Altima would do this. Thanks Jeff

    Hi, I know this question was probably asked a million times but thought I would ask again. Hi, My 2003 Passat GLS passenger door will not shut. When I lock the doors, the drivers lock knob does NOT go down. All the other door lock knob goes all the way down when I lock. Maybe that's one of...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Bought a 2002 GLX 4motion about 4 months ago from a guy. When I test drove it I noticed the yellow car and key light blinking and the guy told me it was because the key needed to be programmed to the car. After more drives, I noticed when the car starts the immobilizer active message appears...
