Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat

2003 passat 1.8T gls power dirver seat

I took my 2003 passat into the dealer where I purchased the car, NEW,in 2003, for the heated seat recall from VW. My driver seat actually did burn through some padding(so I was told). One week later when I picked-up my car, the driver seat was replaced with a manual seat. When I called and told the dealership about the problem, they told I never had a power driver seat! And that VW never even had power driver seats optional for that make/model passat ! ??? WHAT..I've owned this car 5 years! I know it had a power driver seat! Bad news is I Do have the original window sticker, but it does not list it.I've contacted VW who informed me that although the car left the factory w/out a power seat,doesn't mean that at sometime before I purchased it, one wasn't installed. Aauugh! Does anyone out there have or knows of another 2003 passat 1.8 T 4cyl GLS that has a factory installed power seat? Or did I have a mental stroke!

Seeing you have a GLS edition... most of them have at least a power DRIVERS seat. I own a 2003 GLX v6 and it comes with both front seats powered and heated. i hope this helps!

2004 passat alarm keeps going off where is the fuse to turn it off.


This could be serious, you need to lift up the carpet in the passenger footwell or drivers which ever continent you are on, and check for water leakage, water tends to break through the seals on the pollen filter housing and come down the a pillar over all your wiring and into the footwell, the seat willneed to be removed and check the the convenience controll unit has not been soaked, if you are lucky it might have survived and you willonly need a wiring repair and a dry out, toprevent this happening again you must either ask a dealer to do it or purchase the sealing putty from a dealer and place it around the pollen filter housing. VW are well aware of this problem and they willknow exactly what you are talking about. Hope this helps.

Occasionally when I apply the brakes on my 2001 VW Passat it sounds like the ABS is kicking in even when I am soft braking. The brake pedal vibrates and the car makes a grinding sound. What could be...


I had exactly the same problem with my 2003 tdi, 'scary stuff for sure' Lots of so called experts knew what the problem was, (brake pressure switch).. (ABS sensor at the wheels) .. (ABS control module)..Trial and error and lots of expence for sure, no thanks, keep away from from the backstreet cowboys and go to the people who specialise in VW repairs every day and who know what they are talking about. My main VW dealer sorted it, they found it was a problem with the YAW Sensor located under the rear seat, they cleaned it and checked it and reset it etc, they didn't even charge me ( I did have a new clutch and 2 outer CV joints fitted at the time) and now it seems ok, hasn't happened since, actually this seemed to happen more often when I had 2 or 3 people sitting in the back seat and the ESP light came on at the same time, hope you sort it soon

Oil in water resovour vw 2002 passat


Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...

#4 coil needs replacing


here is what i remember ... there was a class action law suit against VW about the high failure rate of the coils especially for the 4 cyl cars with turbo ... VW lost and agreed to install heat shields around the coils ... not sure what years are involved but you might check with a VW dealer to see if you come under that agreement .. as i recall VW charged a fortune for the replacement coils and labor.. a few years ago you could expect a second coil to go bad and even a third or all eventually .. VW would only change one coil at at time when in warranty .... the replacement coil did not appear to be an improved version .. .. it looks like VW is obligated to install the heat shields on models included in the suit ..

Buick Lesabre Heated Seats not working


The problem is most likely caused by shorted heating grids in the seat cushion itself, kind of like the heating element in an electric blanket, very expensive to replace.
