  1. 03 Passat Key Problems

    New Member Introductions
    Okay so I have an 2003 VW Passat V6. I can Lock and Unlock my vehicle just fine with remote or pressing the button inside the car. But the switch on the driver side door and on the remote to open the trunk don’t work at all. I tried hold the button to open the trunk on the remote for 3 seconds...
  2. Hi, just bought an old boat

    New Member Introductions
    Hi guys, a VW noob here, from Europe, in my early 40s. Just bought my first non-Japanese car - an old 1996 b5 Passat, 1.8T, manual, sedan. Got it for only like 400 bucks and almost everything works fine, except for: # the power locks - the remote unlocks only the driver's door and trunk # the...
  3. A bit confused with trunk electronics

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone, I'm slowly working my way down my Passat repair list and hit something that hasn't worked the whole time I have owned the car. I have always had some sort of short in the trunk. When reading through the forums, some people mention the actuator and others the latch. Given my list of...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2002 VW Passat V6 4Motion and I can't open my trunk. The buttons on my keys as well as inside the car don't work.

  9. Trunk Problem

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2002 Passat GLX 4Motion 2.8L V6 engine. My trunk won't open.

They...

  12. Found a NEW Genuine B5 OEM Votex Trunk Spoiler. Some questions about this rare item.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know this has been discontinued for almost ten years. I have not had any luck finding this new or used in any color, let alone in my color, Black Magic. The only other options that exist are weird Chinese trim things that look a bit weird. The genuine Votex one has an integrated brake light...
  13. What is in your (passat) trunk? (e.g. emergency supplies, tools, fluids, etc)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been in kind of emergency preparedness mode for the last few weeks, both in the apartment and cars. I've been evaluating what I carry with me in my Passat, and our other cars (HRV, Camry). I clearly need to add some things, but wanted to get some feedback. FLUIDS: - VW PS fluid (need to...
  14. Rear trunk wont open from the inside

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Heh-Lur! I own a 03 Passat wagon and my rear hatch/trunk wont open from the inside when I hit the trunk switch on the door. I always have to turn off my car and open the back manually with my key which is annoying as heck especially after I've driven my car and I have to immediately remove...
  15. Trunk lid

    B5 Garage
    My trunk lid does release when I press the button but the lid stays in place: does not lift, does not pop open. It was like this since I got it in May, not sure how it supposed to work. When I lift it by hand I feel resistance, tried WD40 in places I could spot rust but that did not help much...

  19. Dimming trunk light drives me CRAZY

    B5 Garage
    Whenever I open the trunk and start to search for tools it happens. About 10-15 seconds after opening it, the light only works at about 50% efficiency. If I press the unlock button on the key fob, it works perfectly again. How can I get rid of this REALLY annoying "feature"? Car is a b5.5, bulb...
