It sound like your ignition switch is going. Does anything else turn on such as the radio or the heater fan? If they turn on it is most likely your ignition switch.

SOURCE: Fuel light wont turn off

Hi,

It would seem that this is a fairly common problem even with some of the Audi models. The problem is the fuel sending unit (sensor) that gives off erroneous readings. Your dashboard then displays the fuel low warning light and your fuel gauge would read low or empty. The repair of course would require direct replacement of the erring component. I would not recommend a self fix since this would involve taking off the fuel tank to gain access to the sender cover, cover/assembly and gasket removal. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

In some cases, thumping on the fuel tank jars the fuel sending unit back into operation but the same of course can cause it back to malfunction. This would probably explain the "...it fixed itself..."

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: the ingnition won`t start, how dow I by pass the EPC

Your EPC stands for "Electronic Power Control" and without it (bypassing it, as you stated), you will not be going anywhere in your car. The car MUST have the EPC on/enabled to run, as I have been told. The VW Passat does not have a throttle cable... it is controlled electronically. The EPC light means something is wrong in the drive-by-wire path, the "gas pedal" potentiometers or the electric motor-controlled throttle body, etc. You will need to take it to a mechanic/repair shop that is knowledgable in foreign automobiles (especially VW's) and has the appropriate tools and equipment to read any "codes" being kicked out by the computer.

I have a 2001 New Passat with the EPC light coming on randomly and it will idle high but next time I start the car it goes away. I think you will have to take it in to the dealer.

It sounds like you have an issue with your PassLock security system. I had the same with my 2002 Impala. Key turns OK, but won't start, won't crank. Wait 20-30 minutes, and car starts normally. There is usually a clue from the Battery and Security lights.
The problem starting to happen once a month, and eventually 1-2 times a week.
There are several write-ups on this problem for several GM cars for 2000-2006(?). Search this website, and search the web.
The official solution is to replace the ignition switch. The best solution is to bypass the Pass Lock system. I went ahead and did a full bypass, which involves cutting wires and adding resistors to the ignition circuit. I have not had a problem since.

Check your battery terminals. Take the cables off you battery and clean with a mild solution of baking soda and water. Also check the ground cable and make sure it is attached securely. I had a truck that did the same thing and it was a corrosion problem.

Turn key, nothing happens


It could be the park/neutral switch, next time it doesn't start try wiggling the shifter in park while turning the key, or shift to neutral and see if that will work. if that doesn't change the problem I would replace the ignition switch.
