SOURCE: VW Passat 2006 service now

2 options depending on your displays .

Press and hold the service wrench button with the ignition off. While still holding the button, turn your ignition to "on" (but don't start the car). Press the Min clock button and then release the wrench button.


With key off press and hold the 0.0 button on the cluster. With your other hand turn the key to the on position , while still holding 0.0 button, press the minute button for 1 second and you will see the service reset.

cheers

SOURCE: On what tires do you put chains for an all-wheel

I would say the front , IF I was putting chains on. Not that I EVER would , I live in Canada , and we get lots of snow here. I have NEVER seen a car with chains on. (not even those useless cable chains) Winter tires , or Good all seasons are a far better solution.

Battery when flat and now no power steering with red fault light.


Get your battery charged and get it tested. The steering wheel fault is generated usually when low battery power occurs, and once restored, and car is driven a few feet,it clears itself..

Starts and stalls immediatly takes several starts and depressing gas peddle to keep running


This is a somewhat common problem, usually occurs also with ""steering lock fault". It appears to be a software/hardware issue. See VW dealer.
Can be worked around by: inserting key to first stop>wait for yellow steering wheel light to go out>insert key to second stop>wait for red steering wheel light to go out>start er up. This somehow works around the software issue.

I need to know the location of the code scanner hookup in a 2003 VW Passat


All of the scanner ports on cars are required to be within a certain distance of the steering wheel. Typically they are not far under the steering wheel. Look for a cover if it is not clearly visible from under the dash.
OBD2 scanners will scan the engine components only...which is useful. If you want to read all your VW systems, you will need a VAG scan tool. You can find them for $50.
Good Luck!

Red Set button underneath the steering wheel


I believe this is for your tire pressure sensors. If the tire pressure in one of your tires drops it will alert you with a light on your dash. When tire pressure is restored, press this button to reset the sensor.
