SOURCE: vw passat will not run
*Assuming everything ran fine prior to running out of petrol*, the most likely cause is air in your fuel lines or fuel injectors.
For a Volkswagen, the most sure fix is to have a Volkswagen mechanic inspect and maybe clean and prime your injectors. If you are handy enough, you could possibly do this yourself, but it can be quite hard.
Also, there are some additives that claim to be able to fix this in a bottle, but there efficacy is marginal at best.
Last, this problem can sometimes work itself out, though the process of waiting for the bubbles to clear (you may have to endure many quits by your engine) can be more than frustrating.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: vw passat 1.8t battery problem?
Either your battery has just given up the ghost,........ Is it the original, and now 10 yrs old ?
Or your Alternator is not charging enough, to replenish what is used.
Have battery tested first, if OK, then the alternator belt tension, and alternator for correct output charging rate.
If all these shows no faults, your starter is then suspect.
Good Luck !
A FixYa would be nice thanks !....John.

no flashing light and rough shaking will be part of spark plug but also a very bad miss fire. I am going to guess that your engine is a 1.8t if so you have 4 coils that sit on top of your spark plugs that most likely are arcing you will need to figure out which coil is failing or you can save yourself the trouble and replace all 4 and the spark plugs. before you do that though check your wireing going to your coils look for broken wires or the ground that is next to the #1 coil that is the one closest to the front of the motor and you. hope that helps. that will be the start to fixing your issue also when you pull out the spark plug look down the hole first and make sure that there is not oil in the bottom of the hole if that is the case you will need a valve cover gasket as well. good luck hope that helps
