Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat

Open Question

No Start on my 2002 vw passat 2.8 L

Hi Just replace my starter and found that the battery also needed to be replaced. Now the car will not start, all the lights come on but starter will not turn, check started by manualy tripping it by the selinoid and it works. It must be something with the security system because the car lost power when the battery was disconnected. The other thing I noticed that is that when you pull the key out some of the dash dummy lights stay. Any help how to reset the security system on this vw .

Thanks,Adam

You need to seek out a mechanic who specializes in VWs and he will put the car on a machine to check out the entire computer system. Iknow this is probabaly not what any of us like to do, but sometimes you can have a really good mechanic who is an independent work on your car. check his references and prior employment history and it should cost you much less than a dealership shop.

SOURCE: replaced distributor in 95 jetta, now it won't start

Go back to bacic timing. put your crack shaft pully on 0 degree. Take the timing belt cover off and make sure that with the crank shaft pully is on o degree the cam shaft pully is align with a mark it has at 12:oo o'clock. If not so, turn the engine one more time using a 12 point 19mm sucket on the crank shaft till you get to 0 again. Do it very slow, it's very presice. when you align those two marks, then take the distribuitors cap off. Rotor should be pointing at cylinder 1 exactly on it. There is mark on the body of ignition to confirm this. Hope this does it. Also check if your cables are mixed up.

SOURCE: VW Passat 2006 service now

2 options depending on your displays .

Press and hold the service wrench button with the ignition off. While still holding the button, turn your ignition to "on" (but don't start the car). Press the Min clock button and then release the wrench button.


With key off press and hold the 0.0 button on the cluster. With your other hand turn the key to the on position , while still holding 0.0 button, press the minute button for 1 second and you will see the service reset.

cheers

Check ignition switch. Connect a wire from battery positive to any ignition fed point on your fuse box and ignition should turn on. Start the car. If it starts replace ignition switch.

2002 Passat won't start. will turn over but won't catch.


common problem ... have battery load tested you will find that it has enough amps to run the starter motor but not enough vlots when cranking to operate the computers correctly. VW's are voltage hungry and even though battery will crank it the voltage will fall off.

Vw passat 1.8t battery problem?


Hi

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.

2002 Passat won't start


We had the same problem. It was an expensive fix--there apparently was a problem with the onboard computer that would periodically lock out the ignition circuit. Felt just like a bad starter solenoid--but the part cost $800, plus labor, to replace. Ouch.
