Yes replace it and also have the alternator tested. When batteries go bad it makes the alternator work harder. Battery life varies from maker to maker.

Relace it. Even a new one can be defectice within a few months. If it was tested then trust the mechanic that tested it.

Pull the bonnet seal from around the bulk head, remove the plenum chamber cover, for easier access, remove both wipers and pull the trim under the wipers carefully away from the car, start from the edge and work your way alongVERY CAREFULLY, they snap really easy, once this is out of the way you have access to the battery clamps and easy removal.

I was sitting in the car for a few hours listening to the radio and turning the car on and off several times during that time. when i went to leave the battery was dead. got a jump and drove home, about 20...


If the battery was run down enough 20 minutes of dring will not recharge it. It should go on a battery charger and then the battery condition checked. Just sitting and using the battery to play the radio is not a good idea. That is very hard on the battery and will shorten the life severly. If the battery was still the original I'd just replace the battery for a battery that old too much damage would have been done to even chance using it if would last it will not be long.

I'm replaceing a battery in 2005 passat 1.8 auto. what should i look for.


Ask your local battery dealer to match your car specs. to the right battery. The only thing that you need to know is how long of a warranty do you want. The longer the warranty, the higher the price. Be sure to get a good name brand battery like a Dura-Last or Diehard.

There may not be any other way to fix it except to replace your instrument panel. That's where your immobilizer is located. Or you could try this:

Try cold-booting the car. Remove both battery cables from the battery. Short the battery cables together (away from the battery) for about 15 seconds. Reconnect the battery. No guarantees - I found this info at tdiclub.com.
