Hi!

I have a rather strange problem, I have tried searching the net for it but can't find an answer!?! Perhaps you guys / girls can help me!

I have a Passat V5 2002. It just doesn't start, the starterengine is turning, battery is new and full, but it just doesn't start. However, if I push it downhill and crank a gear in it starts right up, no hesitation. Then it can go for a couple of days starting as it should and then just stop again.

Does anyone have any idea, oh yeah, forgot, no error codes, nothing.

when it goes it goes perfectly

Thanks
/Michael

Check clean/tighten battery terminals.
Check grounds, battery neg to body, and body to engine/transmission.

This just happened to me recently. Check the connections to your starter motor. I pulled mine, cleaned the connections, put it back in, and it starts up every time now.
