This week while I was driving, it happened while I was turning a corner at low speed and it even happened on the highway driving straight, the engine will shut off instantly without any warning or stuttering/shudder/black smoke or anything...

    Recently, I've been having this problem with the alarm. :banghead: After I stop and park the car, I arm it. Most times when I've armed it, the driver's side turn signal lights on the front and the rear turn on and remain lit. It will not turn off. Sometimes, if I'm lucky, when I do some...

    Is there any basic hints for what is the cause of this? (it appears that brake booster comes on by itself and stays on for some time). The car is 2000 1.8T ATW, converted from Automatic to Manual by vwshloman and associates and now owned by me. In most aspects, this vehicle is quite awesome...

    Hand Brake Dash Light comes on and stays on, why? For some time now, the red P in a circle for what we Aussies call hand-brake but I think, you call emergency-brake, comes on in my 99 :b5:while driving around a corner or over a small bump but while the brake is definitely not engaged. It...

    My Passat defroster/heater runs as soon as I turn the ignition switch. The dash control panel for the heating/air conditioning does not light up. So the control panel is out, and the defroster stays on full blast. HOT. I think it's climatronic (it's automatic climate control) The heater-a/c...

    A new stereo system was installed in the car, probably a couple months ago, and it does not turn off when the key is taken out of the ignition. Everything had been fine (I've only had the car a couple weeks) until I didn't drive the car for over a day and then it wouldn't start this morning...
