Its on the transmission but depending if its an automatic or manual trans changes the parts price and location. Manual trans has a two pin switch in the top of the trans for about $100 automatic has a multifunction switch located by the gear selector on the side of the transmission for about $200

Its possible the switch is bad but more likely a fuse or the bulbs are burned out .. but in this model they are hard to get to .. there is a nice module that snaps out of the tail light assembly that has some bulbs (brakes, directional sig, tail ) but the backup lamps are not included ..they are inside the lens assembly .. it looks like you have to remove the tail light lens from the car (4 nuts) to get at the backup lights (inside the lens assembly). it takes a deep well socket and a small ratchet .. there is not enough room to get anything long in there .. a bolt sticks out about .5 inch .. thats why you need the deep well socket .. not sure what size. its metric if course ..

Good day;
In your trunk area there should be a piece of carpet by your tail light just move that to the side and then you can access your bulb. Any problems please let me know.

Cheers

SOURCE: 2003 VW PASSAT. Check engine light goes on and

8.5 hrs + parts sounds about right. But why would a 7 year old cars oil pump fail? They usually last a lifetime. Has there been a lubrication problem? Low oil, cheap oil, wrong oil? But then again my daughters 04 Toyota needed a valve job, head gasket and water pump recently. I'm doing 90% of work and it still cost about $2000. Her problem was bad oil!

Check the spark plug for that cylinder, the wire and coil. Also check for any vacuum leaks around that cylinder. See my "How To" on finding a vacuum leak.

2003 automatic VW Passat not changing gears right


The trannys on the vw's are weird, they actually have a brain which tells the tranny what to do, when to switch gears under the driving conditions etc. Is thair a check engine light on? when is the last time you had a tranny service done on it? Also, it sounds even weirder, but is your alternator ok, is it putting out the proper volts to the battery? the alternator not charging the system can lead to alot of weird acting issues.

The eps light is related to your brake light sensor. The emission light you will need to have the code read. Go to your local auto parts store and have it read.
