I had my tyres changes (they wear frequently and nobody can tell me whats wrong)...as I drove off my ASR light came on and the car lost power, is this dangerous? Can it wait to be fixed?


Tyre wear is related to the load you put on your tyres and the pressures you run them at, many tyre suppliers have charts to show you visually why your tyres are wearing and what you should do. Low pressure and high pressure both stress the tyres more than the correct pressure. There is a guide to what pressure your tyres should run at for light and heavy loading, adjusting the pressure for a trip can also save fuel and improve handling. VW recommend 28 Psi all round for your 2003 Passat on standard Tyres.
The ASR light indicates that your stability control system is working, if it is just cutting in as you hit adverse conditions then it is working how it should, if it is staying on go talk to your VW Mechanic , there may be a fault, try turning the ASR button on and off on the dash.

Can vw jetta tdi mechanics key used incorrectly cause the car not to start?


If you mean the valet key, no. I use that key frequently in my 2001 TDI.
Only the ignition switch has a receiver to identify the chip in the key fobs but the valet key has the chip also.

2003 VW PASSAT. Check engine light goes on and


8.5 hrs + parts sounds about right. But why would a 7 year old cars oil pump fail? They usually last a lifetime. Has there been a lubrication problem? Low oil, cheap oil, wrong oil? But then again my daughters 04 Toyota needed a valve job, head gasket and water pump recently. I'm doing 90% of work and it still cost about $2000. Her problem was bad oil!

I just bought a 2005 passat wagon. It is great


you must remove the inner lower panel on the hatch and lubricate the lock mechanism and solenoid.

Watch out for the hidden screws in the lift handle cutouts.

Get 6 new panel clips from a VW dealer before you start.

Door in back cant open from outside and inside


I'm sure VW had a recall to replace door lock mechanisms around that age, check with your dealer. If the door and window on the same door are not working it could be lack of power to that door, check the wiring harness connection is still plugged in and ok on the b pillar (b pillar is the vertical panel between front and rear door), remove rubber gaitor bellows and check connections.
