  1. Possible to set a custom amount for the "trip" counter?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Greetings everyone, hope you're all well! I had a quick question, is it possible to set a custom amount for the "trip" counter in the MFD? My car had to get a new battery, and the trip got reset. It's a 2011 B7, the MFD has the white text and black background. I find the trip to be very useful...
  2. I don't have a rocker Switch

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys, thank you for your time viewing my post. I recently purchased a VW Passat 1.9 TDI v reg (1999) 110bhp. After looking at some of the sticky posts I believe it is a B5 model. The car did not come with a hand book so I'm here trying to figure out a problem. I tried searching google and...

    Anything Auto
    From June. A close friend got married. She didn't want to have her 70-something dad fly out here so she decided she wanted to do the wedding in Newport Beach. We wanted to something big this year since I was turning 50 and my other half, 40. We decided to make it a road trip. "Oh you guys are...
  4. 2015 Passat ac stops blowing air while on long road trip

    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    Hello everybody, this is my first post so I hope I have this in the right place. We have a 2015 Passat Wolfsburg edition and we live in Las Vegas, so crazy hot summer temps. Last summer, the ac started blowing warmer and it would take a while for the ac to start cooling. I took it to an ac shop...
  5. Trip computer issue?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Passat #4 (01.5 B5.5 V6 5sp) has an unusual issue or two, both related to the wiper stalk. The Trip computer will only cycle 1 move at a time, then freeze there until the car is re-started. This is irritating as you can only move to the next or previous screen and it stays there for the rest of...
  6. Final Trip

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just took my 99 Passat on its final road trip with me. I went home to CT from SC for Christmas. The car was as solid as ever. I got 29-30 MPG and I wasn't doing 55 (or 65). I must say I'm having really mixed feelings about turning this car over. (SIDEBAR - when my brother found out I was...
  7. Trip Computer

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just go my 2003 Passat W8. Sadly, there is NO manual. What are the features of the Trip Computer and how can you configure it ? As noticed by some other Threads here, I have the same problem with the fading Display. Seems there is only one solution : buy a new cluster. Or does somebody has...
