Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat

2 Answers

Aftermarket stereo I've recently installed an aftermarket stereo on my 2001 Volkswagen Passat Wagon. The stereo works fine, but when I take my keys out, the car beeps 9 times. What does this mean? I've decided to disconnect the stereo until I learn more, because I'm worried that I will drain the battery.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

How do I remove the front seats for 2001 VW Passat?


Raise car and block securely. Underneath on floor pans directly below seats you will see oval or round rubber grommets.(plugs) Use flat screw driver to pry out. You will see a nut under each. Remove nuts and remove seat. Installation of aftermarket seats may require you to drill new holes and or addition of shims to square up the base of the new seat. Flat washers work well.

How to u reset check engine light on 2006 ve passat


You will need a scan tool to retreive the codes and turn off the MIL (malfunction indicator light). Cheaper scan tools are available on the aftermarket to perform this function. Will save a ton of money over going to the dealer.

After Market radio install on a 2001 Passat


Metra makes a preamp harness that you can use if you have the partial Bose system. My A4 had that (where the front speakers were run off of the headunit with speaker-level feed, but the deck put a line level signal to a rear amp to power the speakers). This harness would let you use the aftermarket deck with your factory speakers, if you have the partial Bose system. Best bet is to do a Google search for "Metra 2001 Passat" or something like that and I'm sure it'll show up.
