Where is the diagnostic port located on my 2001 passat 5 sp. auto V6?


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:

On the new Volkswagen Passat B5 (after MY 2001) the Data Link Connector (DLC) or diagnostic port is placed on the panel above pedals. See pictures below:

AC not working in 2007 Passat. Was told the compressor is good ad plenty of refrigerant but blows only hot air. One day it was good the next day it was not. Shawn Phipps


I had the same problem with my 2007 passat. The external ait temperature sensor measures the outside air temp and displays this on your dashboard computer. If this sensor is not working properly it can cause your ac to blow hot air. If there is a little snowflake symbol by the air temp on your display that is an indication that this sensor may be bad. Get this sensor replaced and it should fix your problem.

Vw Passat 1998 B5 - Fail on display


The fail just tells you there is a fault and you need to find out what is causing it. In your case it is the airbag. It's over 10 years old and I'm afraid that's about the limit on an airbag. Sometimes disconnectong and reconnecting the airbag will fix it but don't hold your breath

AIR BAG FAULT WARNING LIGHT KEEPS COMEING WHEN CAR IS STARTED


I had the same problem. My 2008 Passat had to get a faulty rotator that controls the electrical part of the dashboard on the car.First the Air Fault light came on then my whole dashboard went out the next day. I had no horn, no radio, no lights on at all on the dashboard. It was that rotator part that controls the electrics. I was told they are faulty after a few months, they ordered a new one, installed and my car is good as new.
