I have a 1999 Passat Wagon. My car is currently in the shop and the said that the number two cylinder was not firing they tested the coil pack with a new one and it was still not firing. They reprogrammed the ECU and they are still getting the same codes. The check engine light came on all the sudden and I suspected that it was cause I was really low on gas. With the number 2 cylinder not firing would this be related to the ICM or is it more of a problem with the computer or the wiring harness to the number two coil pack. After reading on here it sounds like its more then likely a problem with the ICM. Am I correct?? What do you guys think?
I have been lurking here for quite awhile and have always found good info. Thanks for all the help and its about time I started posting
Your ICM is toast, go by a new one and get driving again; www.busdepot.com has the HUCO brand for the cheapest but also check out www.ecstuning.com, they sell both the HUCO and stock Bosch brands. Like was stated earlier, 5 minute repair job :thumbup: .
