Question about 2006 Volkswagen Passat
The information screen says I need to put the selector lever in P/N (Park or Neutral) but the lever is already in Park. This car has the ridiculous FOB key so when I stick it in the dash, nothing happens in P or N. I need to know if there is a sensor malfunctioning at the lever or at the transmission, if it's the ignition switch, or the key, or a fuse maybe. It's not reading out any trouble codes, so I don't know.
Thanks for the help
The sensor that tells the can bus what position the stick is in is located on the gearbox not on gearstick.you need to know what position that sensor is seeing the only way is with a more advanced diagnostic tool than just a fault reader.i would recomend vw dealer as passat electrical sytems can be a bit of a challenge when they go wrong and a dealer will be best placed to sort it for you.

Since you must work under the vehicle to adjust most shift linkages make sure you properly raise and support the vehicle before working under it. Also, wear safety glasses or goggles while working under the vehicle.
A voltmeter can be used to check the switch for voltage when the ignition key is turned to the START position with the shift lever in PARK or NEUTRAL. If there is no voltage, the switch should be adjusted or replaced.
