  3. Subwoofer won't work in "Sub out"

    Mobile Electronics
    It's really weird. I've been using my subwoofer connected to the stereo mp3 player's audio output. I've read that it is better to have it connected to the "sub out" or "sub in" connection (can't remember what excactly it is), but once I connect it, my sub starts beating by itself for no reason...

  6. AC No Work

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi All, The AC on my 99 1.8t wagon stopped working a few weeks ago. Before that the AC never really blew too cold and it put a huge load on the engine that starting from a stop was incredibly hindered and therefore I never really used it, also I'm not sure if it affects it, but I also had a...

    New Member Introductions
    My daily is a 2000 1.8T and I've had it for about 4 years now, 130,000 miles on it right now. Now that I'm single that leaves me with a lot of extra time and money (who knew?) and I've been fixing what I can on it for the past few months. What I've done so far: - Repair the oil cooler (temp...

  9. Friend's 1.8T recurring on/off whine sound after WP, TB, Serp, Alternator work

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So my friend has been back and forth with this mechanic (not a VW specialist) like five times, because the problem never seems completely fixed. I don't know much about it, and I'm totally unfamiliar with the 1.8T, other than it also has an accessory belt (unlike my V6). So after all this...

  16. APR Tune for 2017 Passat - will any dongle work?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I am considering getting the APR Stage I upgrade for my 2017 Passat. I've seen on their website that there is an OBD II dongle that will allow bluetooth connectivity so you can use an Android app to change settings instead of using the stalk. The dongle is $199!!!! So, my question is whether...

    B5 Garage
    I'm a previous long term Audi A6 owner, so I'm very familiar with this powertrain. (except my A6 had the AHA engine with quattro, whereas this Passat has the ATQ with FWD.) So...we bought this 2002 GLX with 153K miles for my step-daughter to use and eventually own after she turns 18 (and for...
