SOURCE: Where is the diagnostic port

On the old Volkswagen Passat B5 (MY 1997-2001) the Data Link Connector (DLC) or diagnostic port is placed on the right side of the parking brake lever, under a small rectangle rubber cover. See pictures below:

Where is the diagnostic port of my mazda premacy 2000 model located


Typically the OBD2 port is located below the steering wheel, towards the right or left knee. It should have a cover over it saying "diagnostic" or "obd2" another location is under the hood, typically near a fuse panel. This one should definitely have a cover on it saying "diagnostic" or "obd2"

Looking for the dip stick to check transmission fluid in passat 1999


There isn't one. Checking the fluid on these cars is a real pain. The level of the fluid has to be checked through a fill port in the housing on the transmission - if the fluid is level with the port, the amount is correct. You can get a feel for the condition by smelling it (it shouldn't smell burned) or dipping a finger in to see it. The catch is, this should be done with the transmission at a specific temperature, and it requires the diagnostic software (VAGCom) to do so.

97 Passat. Running well, then all of a sudden,


The battery terminals need cleaning.
Remove the battery cables and clean the cable clamps and the battery posts.
Probably won't need a boost to start.

2001 passat has loss of power, shaking and check engine light flashing


i had this problem on my 2002 passat. it was the ignition coils. first set were replaced in 2002 as a vw recall. second set (at 122K miles) were relatively inexpensive to fix. just one failed but it made the engine run really rough - my mechanic was able to move it from one cylinder to the next to get the problem to repeat.

1997 VW Passat trouble code


Hi ejj509,

Both my 97 Passat and my wife's 99 Passat were throwing the same OBD codes you listed.

Both VW's had the same problem. There is no "quick" solution for the problem. I can tell you what I found, what I had to do and how I repaired both vehicles so they no longer throw this OBD error code.

I removed the black plastivc AIR pump and found that three of the six aluminum rivets which hold the AIR pump impeller housing together had rotted off so the case was leaking air. I went to a hardware store with one of the aluminum rivets I had removed from the AIR pump and bought six brass machine screws and brass nuts. I gouged the aluminum rivets out and replaced them with the brass machine screws.

After I had replaced the AIR pump in the VW, I cleared the codes and ran the diagnostics again.
It still threw the same codes!!!

Next, I removed the plastic top engine cover from the VW engine (VR6) and located the many air solenoids hidden under the cover. I went to a local NAPA shop and purchased an eight foot length of their smallest gauge neoprene gas line (1/8 inch ID).

I carefully removed each piece of rotted VW vacuum line from the air solenoids and replaced each rotted section with lengths of the new neoprene gas line. I had to follow out each of the old vacuum lines and replace them because they were badly deteriorated. This took about five hours to accomplish.

I replaced the plastic engine cover and connected up my cable from my laptop to the VW's computer port, cleared all of the codes and ran a new scan. This time the scan was clear! Woo Hoo! Apparently, the problem was both the leaking AIR pump and faulty, deteriorated (cheap) Volkswagen vacuum lines.

It was well worth the effort. My driveway has now become a bonafied VW repair shoppe.
