These are 2 separate problems. First, the shift lever problem is a problem of LUBRICATION and Condensation. Get the vehicle into a warm area and open the shift lever boot to expose the internal parts. Then using WD40 or CRC spray, spray all the moving parts while working the lever back and forth. Moisture between the metal parts condenses and freezes! THe screen freezing may be caused by similar things, like moisture. For it you need to get to the contacts that supply the screen and blow them out with DRY compressed air!

SOURCE: 2004 volkswagen passat v6 no heat

Do you notice that the engine coolant temperature gauge stays on the lower part of the scale as well? If so, it's likely that your thermostat is stuck open - this prevents the coolant from staying in the block long enough to absorb heat that is used to heat the climate-controlled air. I'm not positive on the 3.0 in your car, but the 2.8 V6 in my Audi A4 requires tremendous disassembly in order to change the thermostat. I believe the 3.0 is the same - the labor involved is only slightly less than that required to do a timing belt change (which, if you change the thermostat, since you're already all the way in there, you may as well do the t-belt service as well so you don't have to pay for all that labor again any sooner than necessary).

I would also have the system power flushed . The termostat on this cars can be a very expensive item to replace..probably 6 hrs of labor at $80.00 hr. The irony of all , the part cost is less than 30.00 dollars.Have it flushed for $100.00 to 150.00 dollars

Passat 2001 with codes P0012,P0340 it runs fine the turbo kicks in no problem I originally found some broken vaccum line and replaced them but the codes still return


P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Trouble
Your cam timing timing is off and the sensor is fine. They are very simple sensors...it's just a magnet...and magnets don't go bad. Check the timing. Incorrect allocation means that the camshaft isnt where the computor thinks it should be at any given time. This could be casued by the base engine timing being off by a tooth or by a problem in the camshaft adjuster.


P0012 Camshaft A: Advance Setpoint not Reached
The code P0012 can be set by the following concerns: Faulty cam adjuster, Faulty cam adjuster solenoid, Low oil pressure, Sludged oil passages and Sticky camshaft.

The variable cam timing uses engine oil pressure diverted to the adjuster mechanism by a solenoid duty cycled by the PCM. Low oil pressure or severe oil sludging can affect camshaft timing operation. Always check oil level and condition when camshaft adjustment codes are present.

Using a full function Volkswagen compatible scan tool enter address word 01 (Engine). Function 08 (Read Measuring Value Blocks) and Display Group 091 (Power Enhancement Camshaft Adjustment).

Observe the 4th display field "Active Camshaft Adjustment Angle" With the engine at idle. The 4th display field should read between -3.0 to +6.0 degrees KW if the camshaft is in the normal unadvanced position. Any other reading at idle indicates that the camshaft is shifted from the normal unadvanced position

Accelerate the vehicle from a standstill in 1st gear using wide-open throttle and observe the display in field 4 again. Under heavy acceleration the display should read between +16.0 to +25.0 degrees KW. This indicates that the camshaft has shifted to the full advance position.

If the display in field 4 does not change from the values in test step 2 or if the display changes but does not reach a minimum of +16.0 degrees KW (i.e. between +6.0 and +16.0 degrees KW), the camshaft timing adjuster mechanism is not advancing the camshaft.

Failure to advance the camshaft could be caused by a faulty cam adjuster, a faulty cam adjuster solenoid, low oil pressure, sludged oil passages, or a sticky camshaft.


Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave ue some testimonial comment)

2001 VW passat code PO600


The PCm (cars computer) is nolonger working correctly. its a loss of communication issue. Back to the dealer you have to go possibly for a new computer and to have it reprogrammed. First tho, Check ALL the fuses under the hood and under the driver side dash board area. Most likely will be in the box under the hood.
