SOURCE: VW Passat 2006 service now

2 options depending on your displays .

Press and hold the service wrench button with the ignition off. While still holding the button, turn your ignition to "on" (but don't start the car). Press the Min clock button and then release the wrench button.

With key off press and hold the 0.0 button on the cluster. With your other hand turn the key to the on position , while still holding 0.0 button, press the minute button for 1 second and you will see the service reset.

SOURCE: need relay location

relay 1 engine compartment
fascia 2 relay 18 (if it is diesel) relay 10 (diesel again) and this could likely be the best candidate relay 4 fuel pump relay/glow plug relay

Now for the fuse box locations ... looking from the front of the car... the engine compartment fuse box is on the left side up near the firewall.
fascia two is the lowest of the two fuse panels on the drivers side under the dash to the right of the steering column (left if it was a right hand drive).

This took about 15 minutes to locate all the possible fuses, be that as it may if i missed it don't hesitate to ask me again.


Please take a moment to rate this solution thanks

I used the wrong key on my 2006 vw passat and now i cant use the right key because the panel still says immobilizer active

You can reset it by disconnecting the battery for an hour. When you reconnect the battery, make sure the correct key is fully inserted into the ignition but not turned on. It will re-pair the chip in the key and the ignition lock to the recognised by the ECM and antitheft system. Make sure you know your radio code :>)

2006 Passat 3.6 Relay J271 ECU Location Look Everywhere But Cant Seem To Locate

if there is no legend on the relay cluster cover makes it very hard to locate

J271 varies from model to model, but once you have the relay out, check one of its sides for the diagram of the pin outs. The solenoid 12V supply will always be marked as 85, the negative always as 86, the normally open (N/O) contact as 87, the normally closed (N/C) as 87a and the pin marked 30 is always the switching voltage supply. Notice that terminals of 87 and 30 are always larger than the other terminals. Connect the relay solenoid to a battery with clip leads and measure the voltage at 87 and 87a, and that it changes over when you hear the relay click. Alternatively do a continuity test between pin 30 and 87, then again between 30 and 87a. Then connect power to the solenoid and the continuity measurement should switch over to the other pin. Unlike the image above, there may be even be more than 1 double pole double throw switch contacts on the relay depending on the model of your car. The Audi J271 is different to some VW's and has more terminals.

just look at the way VW put relay clusters into a passat ..what a mess

I have a 1999 vw Passay 1.8 petrol.The engine turns but no spark or fuel and no engine management light comes on when ignition engaged.Have replace the power up relay(next to the ecu)and have had the ecu...

This is where it would be nice to plug it into a code reader, but lets go over some probabilities. Did you check to see if the immobiliser is active ? Fuse 28 (fuel) and 29 (ignition) are fed by the same ECU output. Check them. Fuel pump relay is #208 .Check. Also, the Passat has a strange quirk, where it has 2 temp sensors. The ECU checks both and if there is a discrepancy, it wont start. Start with this and good luck.

2006 VW Jetta code U0100

This problem is with ecu / ecm= engine control computer. These are a common and horrible problem on vw's, particularly on tdi's. The signs in a tdi are when car dash lights come on, but no glow plug light,trans gear lights flash, but car still tries to crank. And hopefully ecu has enough power to out out code u0100= no communication with ecu. Unfortunately the ecu will need to be replacd. The ecu is located under the hood, near and under the wipers. Used ecu with same codes run $50-200. New $1000. If get used one make sure has a return policy. codes must match production quarterly year.
