    It makes reading the sppedometere hard to do with a glance.

    My analog speedometer works fine, but the digital speed shown in the lower center part (where outside temp is displayed as well), will show 12 mph when standing still, or when going 80, will show 64 mph, etc. I didnt think anything of it, until it started to shift irregularly a couple of weeks...

    There is a speedometer icon with an arrow pointing to it where the mileage is usually displayed on my dash. Mileage is displayed while vehicle is stationary, but while in motion the icon is displayed. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. 2012 Passat 2.5

    Having no luck trying to determine the meaning of "33 min" and "1" in the center of the dashboard between the tachometer and speedometer. Should I be worried? How do I erase them? The two numbers are located above the neon line with outside temperature shown below the neon line. See attachment...

    Hello, I recently replaced my clutch. The install went fine, I drove the car the night I finished it, everything worked great. The next morning, I got a CEL, my speedo stopped working, and my gas gauge goes all over place. The engine will also only rev out to about 5600rpm. I know I have a bad...

    Bought car new in March 2012. We are very happy with it, but have always wondered why we had to 'speed' to keep up with traffic. It turns out the speedo reads 7% high. Checked this with our other vehicle driving in tandem, and then with external gps which can display speed. When speedo reads 107...

    Okay so I recently went down to my local junk yard to find a couple parts, I then came across a 2005 passat and decided to remove its speedometer that I think looks cooler than the one my car formally had. I figured it would be an easy removing and replacing with the old one. After finally...

    I recently discovered that my speedo is reading incorrectly. With all the speed limit signs that have the speed read-out right under the sign, I found that it's roughly 4 mph off (reads 64 when the radar says 60). I even went so far as to download a GPS based speedo app to be 100% sure. I have...

    I know I asked about this before a long time ago, but I gave up on it. Anyways here I am asking again. I did some research and found out that if you press "Press Fan Down", "Temperature Down", ECON button at the same time, you get into a hidden menu. And when you scroll down to #16 using the...

    I am familiar with the 2-3MPH+ inaccuracy of the Passat but I have a few questions about it. A) Does every B5 / B5.5 1.8T/VR6/V6 30V/W8 automatic/manual/tiptronic have this problem? B) is the problem always present or just at specific speeds? C) is it accurate during acceleration / cruise...

    Just bought my new 2013 Passat and found out that the speedometer is 8% inaccurate...a difference of 7 to 8 km/hour on the highway. I called the dealer and i i was told that this is deemed normal by VW and there is nothing they can do....in my 30+ years driving (this is my first VW) i have never...

    So a few weeks ago, I'm driving down the road and my instrument cluster light up like a Christmas tree... It throws various errors like parking brake failure, low oil pressure, etc. I have it towed to the dealer (the same one who told me that I need to replace BOTH thermostats to clear my CEL...

    My passet's speedometer isn't working, does anyone know how to check this out? Is this a common problem?

    Hey fellas, so I'm a bit lost here, or maybe I'm onto something. My hunch is this is VWoA's tricky way of ending warranties sooner than what mileage you actually travel, although I'm in a 2007 at 181k. I've noticed that my speedometer readout at 80mph doesn't actually mean I'm traveling at...

    1999 Passat 1.8T Manual Trans My speedometer stopped working a few months ago...I have found a speedometer sensor but I have not idea where to even start to replace it. I was told it is located at the front of the transmission but I am just not seeing it. Anyone know anything that can help me...
