Question about 2000 Volkswagen Passat 4Motion

1 Answer

It doesn't start.

I have VW passat 1.8T 2000 model, the problem that I'm experiencing with this car is that sometimes the key turns to start position but it will remain silent and sometimes the key would not turn at all. There are two lights on the dash-the alternator light and EPS.

Well if your alternator light is on. seems like you need a new alternator. if it has crapped out it would be the reason why youre car doesnt start. its not a terribly hard fix. but i would say that is probably the reason why it wont start.

I have a 98 vw passat glx. the button which opens the fuel pump door does not seem to work. i have to press it about 20 times before the door opens. any solutions???


chances are the spring that opens the flap is weak,just replace the spring.if it gets stuck shut pull away the carpet/trim from inside the trunk to get to the flap wire.

Reset service interval alarm on VW Passat-01?


This is a mileage interval light that trips every 3,000 to 5,000 miles that indicates an oil change is necessary. You do not need a special tool to change your oil, nor do you need to bring the car in to the dealer.
1. Sit in the driver's seat of the Passat and close all the doors.
2. Position the trip/odometer button to display the odometer mileage reading, then hold it down with the forefinger on your left hand.
3. Turn the ignition key to the "key-on/engine-off" position to turn on all the power options for the Passat without actually starting the engine. At this point, a service indicator light will display (in the form of a wrench).
4. Press the minute adjustment button on the clock (or turn the knob clockwise on European manufactured Passats) and release the trip/odometer button.
Good luck and thank you using Fixya
