SOURCE: 2007 Passat wagon. I need to reset the air bag warning light.

the air bag light will only show if the ignition was turned on while it was disconnected.

it will defo need to be pluged into the computer to be put out but some smaller garages will have the software to do this and will be a little cheaper.here in ireland VW wanted 50euro to do mine but a small garage done it for 30euro.

you can buy code finders/reset gadgets on ebay but might not be worth it for one job compared to $130.

my suggestion would be to get the main dealer to do it if a normal automotive shop cannot access it.

SOURCE: 1997 VW Passat trouble code

Hi ejj509,

Both my 97 Passat and my wife's 99 Passat were throwing the same OBD codes you listed.

Both VW's had the same problem. There is no "quick" solution for the problem. I can tell you what I found, what I had to do and how I repaired both vehicles so they no longer throw this OBD error code.

I removed the black plastivc AIR pump and found that three of the six aluminum rivets which hold the AIR pump impeller housing together had rotted off so the case was leaking air. I went to a hardware store with one of the aluminum rivets I had removed from the AIR pump and bought six brass machine screws and brass nuts. I gouged the aluminum rivets out and replaced them with the brass machine screws.

After I had replaced the AIR pump in the VW, I cleared the codes and ran the diagnostics again.
It still threw the same codes!!!

Next, I removed the plastic top engine cover from the VW engine (VR6) and located the many air solenoids hidden under the cover. I went to a local NAPA shop and purchased an eight foot length of their smallest gauge neoprene gas line (1/8 inch ID).

I carefully removed each piece of rotted VW vacuum line from the air solenoids and replaced each rotted section with lengths of the new neoprene gas line. I had to follow out each of the old vacuum lines and replace them because they were badly deteriorated. This took about five hours to accomplish.

I replaced the plastic engine cover and connected up my cable from my laptop to the VW's computer port, cleared all of the codes and ran a new scan. This time the scan was clear! Woo Hoo! Apparently, the problem was both the leaking AIR pump and faulty, deteriorated (cheap) Volkswagen vacuum lines.

It was well worth the effort. My driveway has now become a bonafied VW repair shoppe.

SOURCE: How does one change air filter in 2002 VW Passat 1.8T?

vw caper is correct. you will need to loosen the 2 philips screws on the air box then lift up the air box towards the fire wall. Be sure to refit the air box lid correctly.

Cant find fuse box in W8 2003 VW Passat any body have an idea? Tried passanger side were it should be but air bag is at that side! Regards John


VW never had their fuse boxes and relay panel at the passenger side. It's always where the instrument cluster is located. This would always be the case, doesn't matter if you live in a country with right hand drive or left hand drive, it is always situated where the instrument cluster is located. The reason is because all information that's vital to your vehicles operation is monitored through it's instrument cluster through warning lights (idiot lights). VWs designed it with this in mind "electric current diminishes the farther it has to travel from it's electrical source". Pry off the driver side cover if not mistaken.
