Vw passat won't start
I have a 2006 vw passat 2.0 100 k miles. It won't start I've put a new fuel pump on battery
and new alternator and still no look on starting. I have had an auto elec to see if it's and
wires they seem to be fine so anybody know what it could be ?
It has had 2 different battery's and like 4 different alternors
How do you know if your ecu has gone ????????
have you tryed the starter ? when you turn it over does it crank ? try looking over all the vacum lines and check your spark plugs for spark *best done in the dark* in diagnosing a starting issue its always good to know what it does when you try to start it as well.. so in a brief description when you turn the key on does it make the normal buzzing noise to prime the pump, then when you turn the key does it crank over and try to start, if it cranks and doesn't start does it chook or simply not sputter at all .. Start from the top , check spark, so coil wires and plugs. NExt move on to fuel, check the lines for leaks, change the filter if it has not been changed in over a year especialy if you don't use supreme or premium gas. if there is no fuel in the lines and you hear the buzzing you most likely had it installed with the wires backwards or hte filter is clogged. If fuel is fine check all the airways to the throttle body, most cases you may have a clogged filter or your maf is to dirty, Check the vacuum lines and pumps. Make sure here is no breaks or leaks some of the rubbery plastic hoses like to snap from to much heat and old age. Any who let us know how all that goes. and where did you buy your alternators ? perhaps they were not rebuilt correctly. i have been having an issue with alternators myself lately and it was because they were not rebuilt correctly.
I've changed like 4 rebuilder alternators and 2 battery's is it worth buying a brand new 1. Could it be my ecu
Hey just wondering did you ever find a solution because I'm in the same boat now.. And I have the same make and model
It ended up being a loose wire
I have the same problem I opened my gas cap and put it back on quickly and it started now it's not I been using unleaded could my issue be gas related it's so hard to find a mechanic other then a dealership to work on it
google map is your friend just search vw specialist and youl come up with all the specialists in your are for vw and audi. If you been using regular gas that would be your problem and your spark plugs are probably fouled. Audis can only be filled with the best high tes you can find ussaly located at petro can 94 octane.
Where did you find your loose wire?
he is likely speaking of the secondary small wire to the alternator. i had simalure power issues as well when my alternator went ca-put. the cooper end of that wire frayed off on my car and i replaced it with a aluminum tip and it had not been the same since.
So what's the fix on this??? Having same problem!
replace the wire end with a new copper tip or simply wrap the wire around the pole end and secure it with the bolt.
Hello I have a Volkswagen Passat 2002 it won't start or crank over. Replaced battery dash board lights come on sun roof won't glide it worked fine before but windows won't roll up or down I was using regular gas also if that helps ! Please help me I'm low on funds and i don't want it to get towed ! Thanks
sounds like you either blew a fuse or a relay best way to figure that out is start pulling fuses and find a junk yard and grab a couple spare relays to test relay slots.
my passat some times it is not starting and other start very normally? the remote control it is not working the battery for it is good but when i am trying to open or close it is not working have to open and close manually any advice
you auto start is likely the issue mate. sounds like a wire is lose or the unit went bad

Email me melvindegrate1672@ gmail.com I've changed relay and fuel pump car still want start 2002 Passat it turns over but want start I put the top of line gas
ok tell me everything you have done since the issues started and tell me exactly what it does when you try to start it. for example if you turn the key does the pump make a steady hum for roughly 8 seconds then shutt off beffore start or does it make irratic sounds. anouther example would be when you try to start it does the car stuter or simple does nothing but crank .
Help 2008 VW Passat turn over but want start irractic sound like it's trying to start but want
I have a 2003 VW Passat i park the car under a pine tree that has small needles for about 2 years after a rainy day I noticed the windows fog up and one day the carpet was wet driver side sponged the water then rained again wet again the the key remote wont work windows wont open interier lights dont work the problem was water under carpet CCM Module full of water broken wires corrosien i replaced wire harnes and module now car wont start i forgot to mention theres a drain under the battery was cloged with pine needles the battery half in water
sounds like you left it parked for way to long. Your at this point probaly dealing with a fuel system that has gotten gummed up from prolonged sitting. First off i would put some good high octane gas in the tank and maybe put an octane booster in. check for any other signs of broken and frayed wires. that battery will likely need to be replaced they are not ment ot be pluged in for over 2 years with out it being used. Once you get the car started i would take it for a nice long drive and get that tank of gas as empty as possible and then refill with high octane again to help clean the system. Shell gas would be the best to use
I have a 99 vw Passat that doesn’t start but since it’s stick I can pop start it and it runs fine what could be wrong
I have 1999 model Passat starting problem
engine size ? what does it do ? browse the comments above see if they help
So I have a 2002 Vw Passat, 1.8 turbo, and it's having problems starting. So the engine turns over, but it doesn't start. If I keep turning the key for about 10-15 minutes then it starts. Usually I have to wait a couple minutes or else the car drives irratically, taking a few seconds to catch up with the pedal. After I start it and drive it around a bit, then it starts up just fine. Got my starter tested and they said that it was fine. Any ideas?
sounds like some sorta issue with a sensor. Why don't you try taking the maf and any other sensors in that air way out and clean them and check the air filter anything after that i would check crank case hoses for signs of sludge and if you can get your hands on a good coil pack try starting it with that also if you have not done it in over 60,000km I would replace the spark plugs and wires and get some of those plastic wire covers to go over them. Also are you in a damp or wet or cold climate ?
I have 2003 W8 and it cranks but won't start at times but then it does start and runs fine. I thought it was fuel pump but it doesn't sputter under load, don't think its spark, maybe gas not sure just trying to find and fix it before my wife makes me sell it
what size engine is in it ? if its a 3L engine it could be the igniton modual they can some times cause intermitant starting issues. they also have alot of vacum issues. one of the crank cases hoses usaly breaks or develops a crack and can cause some issues with idle and start up as well. tho it will help emensly to know what engine you have.
1998 Passat 1.8L turbo. Went to work in morning; tried to start that night - won't turn over. Changed battery, and still no turn over. Lights and dash work... Any ideas?
its likely the starter if you can get underneith it check the wire on the starter to see if its still there betwen the solinod and the main starter body. it has a very bad habbit of rotting off
2008 vs pass at 2.0 turbo . Turns over but doesn't start . Sometimes it starts right up and runs . Did it yesterday and today . It started and ran for about 30 seconds then died . Could it be a fuel filter issue or fuel pump ? It's my sister in laws car . Also check engine light is on but doesn't have any codes that come up . I do know her turbo went out but not sure that would effect it not wanting to start and run . Added oil yesterday and it fired right up and ran all day .
have you been checking the oil ? and a regular obd scanner will not get the codes off the car they only grab surface codes.. You need tofind a specilist that can properly scan the car. If the turbo is blown it will cause alot of issues one of which is massive oil consumption and if the car does not have enough oil it will not start.
I have a 2009 passat 2.0t. It cut out (like i was running out of gas) but only for a few seconds and then was fine. A few days later i was driving down the highway and it started doing it again. It got really bad to the point that the car was shuttering. The engine light and the EPC light were flashing. I pulled over and turned it off and it would not start back up. It did crank over but did not start. I had it towed home and now it wont even crank over it just does a short jerk when i try to start it.
i would have it scanned and see what those codes are. but it sounds to me like it may have jumped the timing
Keri I’m having the same issue with my 2010 VW Passat it died out on the expressway I’ve teiwd to jump it nothing! Any idea what this could be?
My neutral safety switch went out and I replaced it and my car still want turn on ... my lights and everything work but car want start
I'm having a similar issue. My car has been putting out a P0411 code (secondary airflow injection system) and now a P0117 code (Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Circuit Low Input). The other night, it took a few times to start and this morning it took one try to start it. When I went to start it again, it wouldn't start at all. It does crank over, but it doesn't last. I have had to refill the antifreeze twice in a month, thinking there might be a leak or something. Would this contribute to my car not starting?
as the saying goes, if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it is a duck. get it checked out the coolant should never need to be refilled. good posiblity it is the water pump.
If you have a bad coolant temp sensor damaged, your car won't start or it will only in cold weather but after it warm up and turn it off n try to start it again won't work. The CTS sends signals to the ECU if it dfoesnt get the proper readings the ECU would keep the engine off for safety. If you have to refill the coolant very often u most have a leak somewhere.
I own a 2004 vw passat,it cranks but wont start. I noticed after d engine overheated,my windows refuses to roll up and down then again,no signs on my dashboard when d ignition is on. Please help
Well, it must be a short somewhere. Did you check the relays for fuel pump and for the Windows? There's also fuses in the driver side that power up the fuel once the relay is activated.
