  1. Trying to figure out a power drain

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Ok I am working on my sister's 2013 Passat 2.5, it keeps draining the battery. I think I have it narrowed down to one of the fuses under the hood but I can't find anything online that tells me what the fuses control. It is a green 30 amp fuse at the bottom of the first row

    B6 Garage
    Ok, I bought my old VW back from my ex wife, long story. Anyhow, when I got the car back it was showing the P0300 and P0301 codes for misfires but it did start after a jump to drive it up on the trailer.
