My airbag light came on last night, then today, my steering wheel started clicking when I turned it, and the controls no longer work for radio/bluetooth on the steering wheel. Of course, this part is no longer under warranty. Is anyone else experiencing this issue? What did it cost to fix it?

I'm trying to tap into the cigarette lighter wiring to run a remote wire to an amplifier. The tray does not seem to pop out and I don't want to pry too hard and damage my new car.

I have spongy brakes, and checked both fluids. Brake fluid is fine, hydraulic fluid is low--can I drive the car to get it looked at?

My fuse 6 on my passat keeps blowing everytime I put in a new fuse.

Usually before it comes on the can won't start until about the 2nd or 3rd try and when it does the engine is very loud. I would turn the engine off and start it again then the engine goes back to normal and the EPC light would go off...what is the problem?

All i know is one day the car worked, and now it won't start. The battery died and I charged it with my other car and tried to start the vehicle, the emobolizer came on. I spent time trying to figure that out and finally got past it but the car still won't start. I ran a code scan and it came back tcm error code p0864. I changed the crank position sensor and still doesn't come on. I'm not getting any spark and I believe I'm not getting gas either. I checked all the fuses. This problem boggles me and would really like to have it running again.

Hi and thanks for your help! Car is used and no manual. Is there a rest button I need to find?

Why does my Volkswagen Passat 2001 seem to act like it wants to jump out of gear after applying the gas when my light turns green, scary?

I lost the button to open my gas door is there another way to open it... My button is in between the two front seats not on the door

My button isn't on my door it's in between the two front seats most videos talk about it being on the door.
