  2. Parking and Tail lights staying on

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2004 Passat that has the parking lights and tail lights staying on after the car is shut off. It will run the battery dead, so I have to disconnect the battery when I'm done driving it. I suspected moisture under the driver's side carpeting and it was definitely wet. I got everything...
  3. Staying Running

    B5 Garage
    My passat engine turned off while driving on the highway on monday. Before it died it hesitated and started sputtering. After having it towed, I tried to start it with no success. I had the codes read and they were for the mass air flow sensor and secondary air flow. I replaced the Air pump...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have a 2006 Passat 2.0T and am having issues with the fuel pump staying on after the car is shut off and the key is removed. I think its the Fuel Control Module/Unit. I have tested the plug with a multi-meter and found a constant 12v and accessory 12v point on the plug that goes into the...

    Hello--the "open door" light is staying on on my dashboard. It says the luggage comp door open. I opened and slammed the trunk shut several times, but the light is still on. How do I fix this? Thank you.
  6. Check Engine Light and ESP Traction Control Staying Off

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Yesterday, after I detailed the exterior and interior of my car, I proceeded to clean the engine. I lightly sprayed the engine while it was off to clean up some of the mess, and I think I may have tripped the Engine Check Light. Is that normal? The car drives as it did before, and sounds fine...

  9. Goodbye Passat (still staying in VW family though)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As some of you may know from my other threads (Elusive Oil Leak and CEL Catalytic Converter Below Threshold bank 1), my car is just too much of a money pit. It wasn't taken care of as well as it should have by the previous owner, and it no longer makes sense to throw $700/month into a car that...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey everyone, I've had the ECS coil over kit on the front shocks for about 4 years now. I had the front end really low and it's time to raise it back up. Well...I went to do that today and when I adjusted the coil over kit higher and put the tires back on...it's like it didn't go up at all...

  13. Brake lights staying on

    B5 Garage
    Curious problem developed today in my 2003 Passat. The brake lights are staying on all the time, even with key out of ignition and doors locked. Noticed it when I stopped at the grocery store and half an hour later when I came out they were still on. All of them are on, the ones in the tail...

  15. Front ashtray not staying in position

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Has anybody had a problem with the front ashtray dipping slightly into the center console? I have reinstalled it twice now and each time it had come out of those bottom mounting slots on either side. It not only looks funny but it also affects operations, it rubs on the sides and doesn't close...
  16. CEL staying on!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My CEL is staying on my 99. It came on right after I was fooling around with the stock airbox and filter. I unplugged the MAF and the heat-exchanger plenum thing in the back of the box. I unplugged them w/o pulling the battery cables. After I put it all back together I went to drive the thing...
  17. MIL light staying on

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The MIL light in my W8 stayed on this morning. I wrote it off to several days without driving (out of town) but it stayed on during my lunch time drive as well. I really fear taking it to the local dealer, any chance it might decide to turn itself off?
