Major auto parts stores have code readers and will read out your codes for free. The engine light indicates that at least one code is waiting to be read.

I was in traffic and my 99 VW Passat all of sudden started to rumble and shake and the check engine light came on. What could this be?


first you need to get the code if the check engine light is on then there will be a code,you can go to Autozone or Advance auto parts they will do this for free,then bring it to us and we can help you better. i have a hunch it might be your engine speed sensor .

I have a 99 passat and recently took out the battery now my check engine light is on. Is there any way to reset the codes without spending a lot of money?


best way to reset the code is unplug the battery for 120 sec then plug it back on. HOWEVER here is the problems with V.W there battery are not normal, they need more then the normal 12volts. I would make sure that they gave you the right battery.. Passat need i think 14.9 volts. if the battery is showing only 12 volts the cars computer will think somthing is wrong.

try reseting it first then if that dose not help you can take the car to autoZone and have then run an obd2 test on it..

Also the light may go off after 60-80 miles..

hope this helps

If warning lamp does not go out:
  • Switch ignition off.
  • Remove instrument cluster:
  • Connect test box to control module wiring harness.
  • Check wire connection between test box socket 48 and instrument cluster for short circuit to Ground (GND) according to wiring diagram.
  • Erase DTC memory of Engine Control Module (ECM). Generate readiness code. If no malfunctions are detected in wire from Engine Control Module (ECM) to warning lamp:
  • Replace Motronic Engine Control Module -J220-.

EPS and Check engine light on 2004 Volkswagen Passat Turbo


I note that you posted your question 14 Feb 09, so happy belated Valentine's Day! Anyway, I own a 2004 VW Passat 1.8 and am currently facing the same problem (EPC light and check engine light on) and subsequently, I coded it out, which was P0322. I took my other vehicle (more reliable) into the VW dealership in Olympia Washington. I was going to replace the EPC sensor, which typically handles what is sent to the car's brain, telling it how much gas it needs to run. However, the technicians at the dealership told me to code it out before investing any money without knowing exactly what should be replaced.

I took the code and determined the "crank sensor" was defective. If you call around, you should be quoted anywhere between $48 and $90 respectfully. If your VW was lurching like it was missing for a split second at a usual speed, or died at stops, then I would say you were experiencing the same problem I was having. Hopefully, this will fix your problem? The part is pretty inexpensive, but I think what VW charges to replace the sensor, is highway robbery. Anyone in your family mechanically inclined? Good luck!
