    I got the error codes below, I don't know if they are related to the problem or not. The car starts and runs fine, then the engine suddenly shuts off without any warning. It has only happened twice. Both times today. The first time when the car was in the garage and I had just started it and...

    2003 Passat GLX 2.8L Climatronic When I turn on the Air Conditioning, the electric/secondary radiator fan turns on and goes immediately to High speed. It stays at high speed until I turn off the AC. Also, I think this is related, the compressor does not cycle on & off once it drops to a...

    The passenger side camshaft pulley turned about 30 deg clockwise. I read up before posting and it seems to happen occasionally when the bar is removed. I have the pin in and tried to turn the crankshaft with the pin in to ensure it was locked and it didn't move. I loosened the bots with the...

    Hello, been lurking on the forums for years now, but first ever post. So a couple days ago, (two days after I replaced driver side axle assembly), I noticed a very light but noticeable knock or click in the steering wheel at slow speeds while turning, usually in the first 45 -120 degrees of the...

    Hi. I've searched around for this topic and the consensus is to first check PS fluid level (mine is fine), then check tie rods. I took a peek at them (top of wheel, correct?) but don't know how to tell if they are bad or not. What should I be looking for, and should I upload pics? Someone...

    B5.5 Passat, I was "singing the no heat blues" now its a different tune. won't start and won't connect to scanner after replacement of heater core. I removed the dash pad twice to check all connections and look for any damaged wiring and cannot find any issues. Also had my mechanic inspect all...

    Hello All, I seem to have an issue with my A/C, and of course it's during the heat wave. Everytime I turn on the A/C, I hear a crackling sound on the left side of my dash and the A/C light in the middle console starts flickering. The A/C won't turn on anymore. I bought a 384 relay, because...

    Hey guys, I have an 01 b5.5 with Monsoon/Premium 5. When I got the car the battery was dead. I simply replaced it and have not had issues, but... I noticed I can turn on the radio (cd changer and amp) simply by pushing the power button. It turns off automatically when I remove the key... but I...

    Trying to troubleshoot my daughters 98 passat from 400 miles away and get her home for thanksgiving. It's in a shop right now but the mechanic doesn't have vag com and I'm trying to walk him through the steps to get it started so she can drive it home for me to repair. Started acting up about...

    Hey you all. On my 2000 Passat, I used to be able to stick the key in the driver's side door, turn it, hold it, and all the windows would roll down, and eventually the sun roof would open. Great in the heat of summer. The reverse also worked when turning the other way. It stopped doing that a...

    HI guys, I was driving down the highway and the car just turned off. I rolled to a stop at the bottom of the hill, popping the clutch did not help to try and turn back on. The check engine and battery light turned on. When I stoped I tryed to turn the car back on but all I could hear is the...

    I reset my Service light and in the process did something funky to my light system. The lights (headlight, side lights, dashboard lights) all turn on automatically when I start the engine. And stay on of course until I turn off the car. I no longer have to manually turn on and off the...

    I've been lurking on this site on and off since 2008 and have got some really useful information from the posts. But my wife's 1999 Passat (1.8l AEB engine with the 5 speed manual) has finally started acting up in a way that is new to me. Hopefully it isn't new to all y'all. As soon as allowed...
