Vw passat glx v-6 4motion tiptronic tiptronic not working

I just bought a used vw passat and the tiptronic isn't working correctly. It only works part of the time. I can get it to work when going from 1st to 2nd gear and that is it. If I am moving and switch to tiptronic then I can sometimes get it to downshift one or two gears and then that is it. The automatic side is working fine.

My 2002 passat 1.8 litre tiptronic automatic shift indicator is not moving? Would that be a switching problem on the shifter, transmission or lights?


Sounds like the whole shifting unit. It has a printed circuit strip unit that usually goes bad or a switch on the side of the transmission. What code is showing? You need to have it scanned at your VW dealership to correctly diagnose your exact problem

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

Where can i get a free owners manual for my 97 vw passat glx 6cyl automatic?


"Free" will be a problem. The best place to find a "free Owner's Manual" is to copy one from another Passat owner. You can purchase copies of the owner's manual from a variety of on-line sources, and even on eBay. Chances are that you are not the original owner, otherwise VW of America may be able to help. Unlike General Motors, VW does not offer downloadable copies of their Owner's Manuals from the VW Owners website.
