Sounds like you have air in the cooling system. bleeding the air from vws can be a real pain, but persistence wins out in the end.

My interior lights wont work in my vw passat 2.0 tdi sport 2007


  • There is a fuse box on the drivers side either under the dash or on the aids of the dash. One of them fuses could be blown.


  • The other thing that could be going wrong is the harness on the driver side door. If you open the drivers door you will see a harness stretching from the frame to the door. You can get into that harness and look for broke, bulged or rusted wires and splice in new ones. This is common with aged vehicles because of the amount that door is used.

Occasionally when I apply the brakes on my 2001 VW Passat it sounds like the ABS is kicking in even when I am soft braking. The brake pedal vibrates and the car makes a grinding sound. What could be...


I had exactly the same problem with my 2003 tdi, 'scary stuff for sure' Lots of so called experts knew what the problem was, (brake pressure switch).. (ABS sensor at the wheels) .. (ABS control module)..Trial and error and lots of expence for sure, no thanks, keep away from from the backstreet cowboys and go to the people who specialise in VW repairs every day and who know what they are talking about. My main VW dealer sorted it, they found it was a problem with the YAW Sensor located under the rear seat, they cleaned it and checked it and reset it etc, they didn't even charge me ( I did have a new clutch and 2 outer CV joints fitted at the time) and now it seems ok, hasn't happened since, actually this seemed to happen more often when I had 2 or 3 people sitting in the back seat and the ESP light came on at the same time, hope you sort it soon

2005 VW passat 1.9 TDi "immobiliser activated" on display


There may not be any other way to fix it except to replace your instrument panel. That's where your immobilizer is located. Or you could try this:

Try cold-booting the car. Remove both battery cables from the battery. Short the battery cables together (away from the battery) for about 15 seconds. Reconnect the battery. No guarantees - I found this info at tdiclub.com.

1998 VW TDI A/c not blowing cold air!


you may have a dampner issue with your climate control. the dampner is controlled by your Hot/Cold switch. if the dampner is stuck or not working you won't get one but the other. in your case maybe the dampner is stuck on hot, even tho the control says cold.
one possible solution may be a fuse... talk to a volkswagon guy and he'll be able to offer a suggestion or two.
