What would cause a key not to start a 2002 volkswagen passat and how much will it cost to fix this problem?

Asked by Sep 10, 2013 at 03:14 PM about the 2002 Volkswagen Passat

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This is a car that I am considering buying but I don't know what I might be getting myself into. According to the ad it has a new battery and a new comfort control module. Does this sound like the owner has been troubleshooting to see what is causing this? Any information that you can give me would be appreciated.

1 Answer

The comfort control module has nothing to do with the key or starting the car: http://www.passatworld.com/forums/42-volkswagen-passat-b5-discussion/149423-comfort-control-module.html If it does not start, for ANY reason, that's unknown trouble and avoid the car like it's covered with South America Fire ants. I have no idea where I got that analogy. Simply do not buy a car that does not start
