Volkswagen Passat W8 Problems

Water From Clogged Sun Roof Drains May Damage Control Modules

Clogged sunroof drains can allow water to enter the interior and accumulate under the carpet where various control modules are mounted. Over time, the accumulated moisture can damage the control modules.

ABS Light Due to ABS Control Module Failure

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module may fail causing the ABS light to illuminate. Failed modules should be replaced to restore ABS operation.

Check Engine Light due to catalytic converter faults

Check Engine Light illumination can be related to catalytic converter faults, which will require a re-flash of the ECM or replacement of the catalytic converter.
