This is probably due to corroded wires. Under the floor on the driver's side, there have been problems with the flush valve so that water has accumulated and gotten the wires to corrode.
If you peel off the floor you can get to the wires and splice those that are damaged. It's a bit cramped, but it is possible. (Patience is a keyword).

Power windows not working on a 99 Passat


Hi,

The door panel comes off with a T-10 torx or a Hex (Allen) wrench that will fit and a large Philips Screw Driver.. Remove the Plastic cover on the inside Door handle and the screw or screw along the bottom of the door panel. Then remove the screws that hold the handle the the door.They are located behind the plastic plate you removed with a tiny screw driver earlier. Be careful not the mark up the cover whaytprying it up. It is best to pry from underneath. After this 4 screws are out . The Use of a clip tool is best for getting behind the panel to pop it off, screw driver will work. After all the clips are released. Pull the light at the bottom of the panel down and out. Disconnect it or push it back thought the hole it came from. Now you need a 10mm socket, or wrench to remove the 12 bolts that hold the metal plate to the door. Remove all the 10mm bolts, if the window has not already fallen in the door it should be released by removing the black 2" plugs. Then loosen the bolts that clamp the window with the arms. Do not loosen them all the way.Disconect all the wiring. The Door lock cable,can be a pain. I think it pulls down.Next remove the metal plate,that is the regulator. Reverse these steps again to install it.

thank you !!

Intrument cluster lights, climate control lights, radio lights, lights in all window switches and lights for door lock etc are ALL out, checked the dimmer, it rolls but no idea if it actually works. Anyone...


those are all interior lights and functions. Interior fuse box. power supply and feeding fusible links need to be checked for continuity. Not an easy task. May want to have an electrical systems auto tech look at it. Hunting under the dash and around the firewall bothers my neck if you catch my meaning. sorry

Interior lights stay and alarm goes off every time i lock it


Your car thinks a door is open , thus the light stays on. When you lock the doors with the remote it activates the alarm system. 10 sec later it senses that the a door is open and alarm sounds.
I have a 99 passat as well and I just went outside to see where the switch on the door is. Can't see one anywhere , it must be inside the door (part of the latch mechanism). I tried to arm the alarm system by locking the doors with the remote while the door was still open , sure enough the alarm went off about 15 secs later.

Engine won't crank, module problem?


It seem like a bad ignition switch the way you describe it, does the dashboard lights up when you turn the ignition switch on?

Front door locks on a 99 passat


You have the wrong KEY if it won't turn any locks.
You can use the KEY fob from another Passat.
The one you have was most likey not the original
and the car was reprogrammed to except that FOB.

The Fuse panel Is inside the DRIVES side.
Open the Driver door. Look at the side of the DAShboard.
THat Giant "B" Shapped plastic cover pops off.

Check the fuses...IF any are broken,black or no good.
REplace them

Hope this helps

99 passat doors don't lock right


Fixed it! Four broken wires which had corroded through because of water getting in. Reconnected with suitable wires = all works again! The wires are near the control unit under the LH floor. You will see tell-tale blue corrosion from copper wires seaping through the insulation tape.
