Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat
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 .
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

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.

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.
