Check to make sure that the manual release cable is not hooked on something, causing the latch not to engage, even if the electronics think it is.

Hood wont latch closed on '02 vw passat


Hood latch is probably gummed up so the release cable does not return. Try some carb cleaner to clean it, then some spray lithium grease to lubricate it.

Vw 2006 passat trunk won't close


this always happens to my 06 passat when its really cold, im talking 0 or lower. i try not to open the trunk in the winter if i can help it. Its annoying but in the summer i have no problems. I have herd of alot of other people having this problem, VW knows about it and dosnt think its a recall item for somereason, look for your fancy gas door to not open next, i know of 3 people that started having trunk problems and then the fuel door stopped working, not sure if it has anything to do with it or not. but It happend to me and now i have the auto fuel door disconnected from the inside of the trunk.
The trunk issue isnt anything big to worry about it seems intermittent. I found latches and there a little pricey thats why i just deal with it.

Vw passat 2005 boot


could be an alignment problem
pull the latch to open it then give the hood a few taps on and around the edges of the hood that way you dont dent it. If that doesnt work hit it harder if that doesnt work it could be your cable has broke

Sounds like you've developed a head gasket problem. True smoke lingers, STEAM dissipates rather quickly.

Engine light and emmisions worshop on dash


You will need to have another code scan done. A faulty glow plug will certainly show up on a scan, but should NOT bring on the engine MIL light. Erase all faults showing at present. This should extinguish the engine light. Thin start and stop engine a number of times until the light comes back on. This will re boot on-board computer. Do another scan and the fault should show up. If possible do a live reading, paying close attention to the (oxygen sensors) lambda units
Best of luck
