2002 Volkswagen Passat Problems

Digital Display on Instrument Cluster May Fail

The digital display portion of the instrument cluster may fail. Our technicians tell us the entire instrument cluster will need to be replaced to correct this concern.

Check Engine Light Due to Catalytic Converter Fault

Check Engine Light illumination can be related to a catalytic converter fault. Our technicians tell us a re-flash of the ECM may correct the concern. If not, replacement of the catalytic converter may be required.

Engine Misfire Due to Failed Ignition Coil, Spark Plug, or Ignition Wire

An ignition coil or spark plug may fail unexpectedly resulting in an engine misfire and possible illumination of the Check Engine Light. Vehicles equipped with spark plug wires may also develop a misfire caused by a failed spark plug wire.

2002 Volkswagen Passat Recalls

Volkswagen Recalls 1999-2005 Passat Models Due to Multiple Fuel System Issues

The heat shield may become damaged and the fuel line/fuel tank ventilation valve may fracture and leak. Both of these conditions are potential fire hazards. Dealers will install an additional underbody heat shield and inspect and replace affected fuel components.

Volkswagen Recalls 2002 Passat Models Due to Incorrect Tires

Volkswagen is recalling models equipped with 4.0L engines because the affected vehicles are equipped with tires of the maximum load rating index 93h instead of 97h. Dealers will replace all four tires with the proper size tires.

Volkswagen Recalls 1997-2003 Models Due to Possible Fuel Leakage

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1998 Cabrio, 1997-1999 Jetta, and 1998-2003 Passat models because the fuel tank filler neck can suffer abrasion damage if the rear tire goes flat and the vehicle is driven until the tire disintegrates. This may lead to fuel leakage, which can result in a fire. Depending on the model, there are different solutions to the problem. Contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987 for more information.
