All-
This website has been here in excess of 11 years. The B5 Passat has been around since 1997, the B5.5 since 2001, the B6 since 2006, and the B7 has just hit the streets.

For the older models (B6 and earlier), almost any possible issue you might have with your Passat has been discussed here on this website. Let me state that again - almost any possible issue you might have with your Passat has been discussed here on this website.

There has been a rash of newcomers here who aren't taking the time to look for previously documented information and expect to be spoon-fed from the veterans here on how to fix their cars. We, the veterans of this site, expect you newcomers to take the time to utilize the google search utility at the top and bottom of each and every page here. This search tool provides you, the new user, with the ability to search the entire database using google's search tools for key words and tricky phrases that are pertinent to your problem.

Please take the time to a) read and comprehend the valuable info I've written here; b) post in this thread that you have read what I've written here; and, c) use the google search tool - you'll get faster answers!

Thanks-
Jay

obligatory first post

All I wanted to do was thank someone for their post. I've spent 2 days searching for an answer to my question, and I found it here. It's almost not worth the hassle to thank them.

Thanks for this site. I will try the search when needed. I have done most of my own work on my 96 TDI. It can be tricky without some good input which I think this site will provide.

I have a situation that at times when i am driving, out of the blue the guages will turn off the lights in the dash all come on for a second, then everything goes back to normal, no engine cut off, the aftermarket radio isnt affected...

also i have intermittent remote lock issues, and also one door works sometimes sometimes doesnt

2007 3.6 4Motion is my second passat (sometimes I ask myself why did I do that). My first was a 2001 2.8 4Motion.

Thanks Jay from yet another noob

PassatWorld has already saved me major bucks and stress with help on everything from the ABS module to the CCM to the little light bulb behind my heater controls. I'll probably ask some rookie questions but not before a thorough search. Great to be here! :wrench:
