You will need to pull the evaporator box out of the car and remove what ever is in there at the drain tube clogging it up. It could be bunch of pine needles or it could be mouse nest stuff in there causing the clogg. You will not know until you take it out. Or instaed of taking it apart, blow compressed air into the drain here and there to keep it open. But that's no garantee way of doing this. Take it apart would be the right way. You could install some kind of a screen on the car air intake which is below the wiper cowling, to prevent mouse from getting into the air duct system and I would also check inside the blower motor housing for any debriss inside of there. So good amount of work if you want to get this done right. Good luck.

The ecu is probably under the passenger seat. The battery also has a fusible link which may be blown. Also follow the battery wiring to the regulator box. This may also be faulty

SOURCE: 1.6 fsi passat,pinging
pinging may not be the result of the type of fuel, but sometimes in the combustion chanber, carbon can build up and act as an insulator, so when the vehicle warms up, the carbon deposit retains the heat and ignites the fresh air fuel mixture before the spark plug is supposed to ignite it. check your spark plugs and if you have a scope try and look into the chamber (when the piston is all the way down of course). You can buy engine decarbonizers, but the cheapest one is water (free). you can't add a lot, just use a vaccum line to **** up a tiny bit of water at a time, also make sure the egine is running above idle

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
To resolve the water leak, the weather strip on the rear should be replaced. The weather strip is the rubber that secures the interior from water. Regarding the airbag fault, as a first course of action please remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. then reconnect it again to reset the system and the airbag fault can be resolve.
If it doesn't help then the problem will rely on the airbag maintenance. Please see dealership to have the car diagnosed to see the fault and fix.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Sounds like you have a weak battery. It doesn't take much power to make all the lights work but you need a lot of current to start the engine. You can test the battery by looking at voltage across the terminals when you try to start the car, if it's less than 12 volts your battery needs to be replaced. If your battery is more than 5 years old it should be replaced anyway. Good luck, let us know how it goes.
