Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
I have a 2001 Passat , 4 motion and currently it has given me a hell of a time. The latest problem with it is - when i shift gears, sometimes the lighting on my dashboard show all gears selected, then it gives me a signal to stop, also the check engine light keeps coming on and off. I took it to the dealer 3 weeks ago and they told me that the CONTROL MODULE had an internal short - 650.00 dollars later/3 weeks later, this other problem pops up? Has anyone dealt with anything like this?
I have the same make and model. Overall a really nice car. I was driving down the freeway yesterday when the car jolted and I lost the gear lighting on my dash. The car drove in 'limp' mode the remainder of the way home. I started it up this morning and it ran fine for about 15 minutes then it went back to 'limp' mode and the dashboard gear indicatior lights went out again. Research indicates this is the Transmission control module which is located under the passanger side floorboard. In my case there is moisture in this area
