Question about 1996 Volkswagen Passat

2005 Passat won't start due to security issues

Girlfriend has a 2005 Passat wagon and had the battery replaced and then the security system started giving her all kinds of problems and the car wouldn't turn over. The car was taken to the repair shop and the security system was reprogrammed which solved the problem for two weeks. Now the same thing has happened again. Is there anything you can do to disengage the security system or something to get the car to start? It sounds like it will need to go back to the shop for some further diagnostics because the original repair did not fix the problem.

99 vw passat. recently had to start unplugging my battery due to a relay going out. lost my primary headlights, wipers, turn signals, air flow and now my power stays on, hence why i unplug the battery. yet...


Sounds like a combination of problems. First your battery is dead, and your alternator isn't putting out enough to run car. As for relay, replace it. I had a coil pack go out on me after I had other electrical issues so that's possible too. Go to VWvortex.Com and search the forums

My bmw 320i e90 2005 only cranks but won't start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Left the lights on .. how to jump the battery in a 2005 Passat wagon.


It jumps like any other car. Pos. good battery...Pos. bad battery...Neg. bad battery...Neg. good battery. Then do reverse after it starts. Let old battery charge from new battery with car running if it needs more power to crank over.

2005 VW Passat Wagon won't start. The dealership said it is not the battery, starter or alternator. It started up fine Sunday morning. When I got back in the car to go back home it would not start at all....


something may be loose, i would check the big cables from the battery to the engine block and to the starter. i doubt it is the computer, or corrosion as the car is so new, look for loose wire/s

I just bought a 2005 passat wagon. It is great


you must remove the inner lower panel on the hatch and lubricate the lock mechanism and solenoid.

Watch out for the hidden screws in the lift handle cutouts.

Get 6 new panel clips from a VW dealer before you start.

VW Passat failing to start/security alarm issues are they linked?


Usually on the passat, if the immobiliser is on, there is a yellow key symbol flashing on the clocks as you try and start it. Do the doors unlock with the remote key? If no flashing light and the key fob working, i would be looking at possibly starter relay. This is either located under the fuse box or under a plastic cover near the windscreen under the bonnet.
