For the past 3 + hrs. I have been reading all the posts on this tread relating to speedo issues. However not one seems to touch upon my particular issue. So once again I turn to the very knowledgeable folks on this forum for advice.
As stated by many others here I have an...
I have an '07 Wagon 2.0T delivered to Canada, subsequently traded in the US with original metric only speedometer. A shoddy dealership replaced the kph speedometer dial with an mph dial without reprogramming the car, so I have a worthless gauge which predictably turns the needle at the kph rate...
I recently had the engine replaced in my 2005 Passat 2.8L and the speedo and odometer are no longer working when they worked prior to the change. I checked to see if the speed sensor on the tranny was on properly and it was. What else could it be and does the engine change have any effect on it.
OK, so I have these new 225.55.16 tires on my GLX. They are 3% larger than the B5 OEM 195.65.15s, and about 2% larger than the 215.55.16s they replaced. Curious about how much actual difference this would make I fired up Torque on my Android tablet and went for a drive. At a steady 75mph on the...
Hello PW, I posted earlier about this problem... Didn't get much probably because I didn't list the code. lol Plugged in my motoza software and it is code: P0501- Vehicle Speed Sensor Range/ Performance 16885
Symptoms are: no speedo reading, gas gauge goes up when turning right, down when...
Has anyone heard of this happening
I was checking all the fuses in the panel in the pic - I may have had the accessories on when I pulled some of the fuses.
Then this happened

I've always been very satisfied with my precise speedo.
But about two weeks ago it was suddenly about 9 mi/hr too slow.
And it's been very stubborn about it.
I wonder how it could happen and if there is anything I can do about it?
As it's quite annoying. I've just...
My daughter called and said her gauges had died suddenly. She has no speeometer, tach and fuel gauge, they are all dead. They died without any warning. Suggestions? She is about to get married and I will be glad when my future son in law will take this problem over. Thanks in advance
I have a 2000 2.8 4Motion wagon that recently ended up with both the speedometer sensor cable and the crankshaft speed sensor cables getting cut. I am not sure how as I don't see what got at them. I had replaced the crankshaft speed sensor cable about 6 months ago and all work fine until a few...
I have had Audi's for the past few years and I was looking for a all wheel drive Wagon and
found this Passat local and it's in Great shape with low miles.. Very happy with the Passat

Hi, I had the dealer take off the 18 inch wheels because the ride was too noisy... The 17 inch five spokes were markedly quieter. Here's the question. I am looking at tires for a full size spare so I went to tire rack. I found out there that the factory Hankook 17 inch does 790 revs per mile...
1.8T Manual Transmission
I am working on trouble shooting the failure of my speedometer. I am trying to establish if the ABS sensors at the wheels affect this. I got an ABS light about a month before the Speedo failed. I knew they were worn but had bigger issues to fix so I let it go.
I have a 2000 V6 with the tiptronic. The speedometer just decided to stop working about 75% of the time. Is there a common cause for this? I did a search and found that other models have a speed sensor that goes bad but it seems that this one has the speed sensor built in to the transmission?
I have an '04 Passat V6 Auto FWD that has not had any speedometer issues until a recent 5" snowfall. It was fine until I had to run through a pile of snow and then it started to fluctuate and finally stopped working; so did the odometer and related functions e.g. mpg, miles to empty, etc. I...
As stated parts of the console isnt working.
and trip conputer
The lights all work and the warning lights all work especially the fuel light but the rest isnt.
Ive looked up the back from underneath and all electrical connections are connected!
I'm looking for ways to re-calibrate the speedo on my '10 Passat which is reading the usual 5% low. I've checked the VSCS forums but without luck.
I am also wanting to know if it is possible to mod the cruise control set-up so that the speed increments only 2km/h when you raise the stalk...
Speedometer is not working properly, seems like a weak signal, i replaced the VSS to try get rid of the codes, with no luck....anyone ever run into the same problems as me?

When I am going 70 my Speedometer reads 74.
I need new tires soon. Is there any reason to NOT go up a size or two to partially correct the speedo error and get a little more ground clearance?
Even a 215 to replace the 205 will correct about half of the error.
A half inch of extra...
