Please clarify, Although the alternator light is on, can you start the car? Does it turn over, but not start? If it won't turn over, you 1st need to charge the battery and try to start it. If the light remains on, have your alternator checked, it probably isn't charging the battery. How old is the battery? If it doesn't charge up, it should also be tested to make sure it's ok. Let me know the answers to the above, and let me know what happens. good luck countrycurt0

SOURCE: where is the thermastat located on a 1996

That engine is an ALH engine code and 1.9l TDI non pump deuse...The thermostat for engine cooling is located within a Thermostat Housing. Follow the bottom radiator hose leading to engine block, where it meets teh block you will see the housing. It looks like this

Be sure and be careful, it is a plastic assembly and can crack when removing or reinstalling. There are torque specifications for it as well that must be observed. The torque settings are located on this pdf. They are under Thermostat Housing.

You CANNOT put just any antifreeze/coolant into a VW TDI no matter what someone tells you. Even if the bottle says UNIVERSAL. If you are doing this repair and doing it right then you need PENTOSIN antifreeze/coolant that meets AVG (American Volkswagen Group) specs. Look at for some great tips on upkeep of your car, ask questions, etc. Most of the time you can find a local TDI expert who will help free of charge just to tinker. These TDI engines are big hobby engines! Some guys have Million Milers! They also usually have extra fluids, parts, etc sitting around from helping other people!

Fog lights out on 2001 passat.

The only way a lot of bulbs can burn out at once is overvoltage. Check your charging voltage with the car running, using a multimeter. Should be 13.8 volts; with the car off, about 12.6.
