Okay i had this same problem, i paid $600 dollars for an electrician to fix it.
You might want to check to see if the horn works. Usually when one thing on the dashboard goes out of wack so does the hole thing (specially the gas meter mine left me on the street). Check the horn, the speedometer, the time on the dashboard. If you want to tackle this problem yourself i recommend that you check all the electrical fuses they should be under the string wheel and the relays. Check those, or if you have a friend or someone who knows about this kind of things, you might want to ask them for help. I strongly recommend you check the relay before you consider taking it to an electrical mecanic. I am not sure of the name (or if it even exist) but try searching for the odometer relay.
Hope this helps.

I have an 03 vw passat 2.8 4 motion. It keeps overheating! I checked the core and nothing wrong. Changed the thermostat and it still over heats. Now I'm told it might be the water pump. Its fine when I'm...


The water pump is a possibility. It could also be a head gasket leak into the water jacket. At idle the pressure may not be enough to overheat the engine, but acceleration would cause rapid overheating.

My 2006 VW jetta has a symbol of a wrench and it's meaning is not in the manual. What does the wrench symbol mean?


This means that your vehicle requires service. Something is wrong. You can take it to Autozone and they will put it on their diagnostic machine for free. And tell you what is wrong. Usually nothing major. Just needs to be checked out.
PLEASE RATE by checking one of the 4 thumbs ups!
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!!!

Reset service interval alarm on VW Passat-01?


This is a mileage interval light that trips every 3,000 to 5,000 miles that indicates an oil change is necessary. You do not need a special tool to change your oil, nor do you need to bring the car in to the dealer.
1. Sit in the driver's seat of the Passat and close all the doors.
2. Position the trip/odometer button to display the odometer mileage reading, then hold it down with the forefinger on your left hand.
3. Turn the ignition key to the "key-on/engine-off" position to turn on all the power options for the Passat without actually starting the engine. At this point, a service indicator light will display (in the form of a wrench).
4. Press the minute adjustment button on the clock (or turn the knob clockwise on European manufactured Passats) and release the trip/odometer button.
Good luck and thank you using Fixya
