Any warning light will fail you. You must get the cause of the warning lights diagnosed and repaired.

SOURCE: 2007 Passat wagon. I need to reset the air bag warning light.

the air bag light will only show if the ignition was turned on while it was disconnected.

it will defo need to be pluged into the computer to be put out but some smaller garages will have the software to do this and will be a little cheaper.here in ireland VW wanted 50euro to do mine but a small garage done it for 30euro.

you can buy code finders/reset gadgets on ebay but might not be worth it for one job compared to $130.

my suggestion would be to get the main dealer to do it if a normal automotive shop cannot access it.

Common fault on FORD
Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.


Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

SOURCE: air bag lights warning staying on passat 1999

When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

SOURCE: passat 2.0 tdi se 06 engine warning light on

If light is on at start up its usually a glow plug gone .Won't make any differance to driving. You should get a diagnostic scan done which will tell you which plug is at fault.

Passat emission garage


i had the same problem with my '00 jetta. I believe it has to do with the o2 sensors, but, there are many factors that come into play when it comes to this problem. running rich/lean, bad o2 sensors, cracks in the exhaust. what fixed my problem was the engine temp sensor, a little bit away from exhaust but vw likes their systems closely intergrated. check that out first before diving into the more expensive and bigger parts. good luck, and be patient.

I have a 2006 VW Passat 2.0T. My check Engine light is on and when it was scanned I got two codes 171 & 455. What does this mean? I do notice that when I fill up at the gas station, my car acts like it...


Engine is running lean and there is a leak in the evap system, most likely due to purge valve stuck open. This is causing the engine to flood after a fill up. This is a known problem with the 06 Passat. See post here: http://consumerguideauto.howstuffworks.com/2006-to-2010-volkswagen-passat-2.htm

06 passat, battery light came on car shutdown at stop light, dash lights and radio stayed on. then was able to restart about 20 minutes later before tow came battery light never came back on. the battery...


unless the battery light was on while the engine was running I don't think that was your problem. The batt light always comes on when the key is on and vehicle is not running. That said I am not sure without more info why the vehicle shutdown and how that is related to the ac unit

Passat 2006 2.0 tdi 140 engine won't start dash warning says either "engine fault, garage" or "low oil pressure".


Exhaust pressure sensor a possibility if it has a DPF (diesel particulate filter). Has it had its fuel pump recall, the oil pressure light could be just the constant cranking and running the battery low.

VW Passat 2001: Exhaust emission warning lamp flashing. Manual says 'blinks if the catalyst can be damaged by misfires'. Any suggestions?


"Check engine light" EMISSIONS WORKSHOP! Do you want to shut it off??? After reading all of the negative comments and how much money Passat owners have spent due to this manufacturer's problem, I am going to save the day and save you $$$ by showing you how to "reset" the diagnostic computer which makes the "emissions workshop-check engine light come on! (This is the same thing the VW dealer will charge you hundreds of dollars to do.) To turn off the "Check Engine" (Emissions Workshop) light, simply follow these 5 basic steps:
1. Pop open the hood.
2. Insert the key in the ignition and turn without starting the engine until all of the dash indicators light and warning tones sound.
3. With the key still in the ignition, use a 10mm wrench or socket to loosen and completely disconnect the negative (-) battery cable from the battery. Wait about 60 seconds before reconnecting.
4. Re-connect and tighten the negative (-) cable to the battery and close the hood.
5. Start the engine. THE "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT HAS GONE OUT!
If the light stays on, then there really is a problem. If it has turned off, be glad, but don't be surprised to see it come on again in a few weeks. If it comes on again, simply follow steps 1-5. Remember... This quick repair is for those who just can't stand looking at this light or afford to visit VW every time this light comes on. If you feel the need to service the vehicle, service the vehicle. I hope this has made your "NIGHTMARE" a little easier!!!
