    it is common for speakers in the older passats to go out try smackin the door when radio is on sometimes the speaker will work for a minute but usually is static filled sound

  • paul campbell Aug 03, 2009

    sounds like the speakers are shot then i should tell you im a vw tech and just a month ago replaced both rear speakers on a 2004 passat unless you have a good amp and speakers they will blow as these vehicles were intended for middle aged and up and they dont really pump bass lol so if both speakers inop id have to say speakers if you have one lying around you could try with jumper wires that would tell you right there if it works then you need new ones if not there may be a factory amp and you should check it

I have a 98 vw passat glx. the button which opens the fuel pump door does not seem to work. i have to press it about 20 times before the door opens. any solutions???


chances are the spring that opens the flap is weak,just replace the spring.if it gets stuck shut pull away the carpet/trim from inside the trunk to get to the flap wire.

No sound from new stereo


check the speakers in the rear deck, in the rear hatch or trunk, often the two wires that come out of the speaker touch if that happens it will short out the speaker drivers in the radio most times no permanant damage will occur. separate the wires so they do not touch,or touch the metal speker base, that may not be the problem but its a start..

2002 VW Passat GLX AWD, stereo stopped working


HI,
Passats can be reset if the radio is pulled out and the fuse on the back is removed. Wait for 2 mins, reinsert the fuse and turn the radio on. If this doesn't work, please take it to the dealer for the unlocking of the code, for which he may charge you some fee.

Do let me know if it was helpful.

Regards
Kanu

2003 passat issues


Well, your local garage is correct. Most cars now a days have computers for everything. That is one computer that runs those things. But before you go into replacing an expensive motor, go through and get a wiring diagram from your local parts store, and then see where the wiring all have in common, this may only be the computer, but may be a fuse of some sort. hope that helps.

Stereo Wiring 1984 VW Rabbit


The red wire is power, brown is ground. There also may be a second power wire (possibly yellow) that is switched though the ignition (test this with a light), if you hook it up that way you won't drain your battery by accidentally leaving the stereo on!! The best way to determine what wires go to what speakers is to take each pair and brush the ends across the ends of a "D" cell battery! the corresponding speaker will produce a bit of static! The wires with the stripes are the negative side of each speaker circuit. Hope this helps...;-)
