VAG COM help
« on: August 23, 2007, 09:35:00 PM »
Hey all what is happening  OK I dont know all the particulars but something is going on  with my Passat.  My pregnant girlfriend has been driving it since I am here in the Gulf of Mexico working to make sure the oil keeps flowing out of the ground!  She said the car is running horrible and the CEL came on.  She took it to Checker down the street to have it read and they said the computer isn't talking.  So who knows, I just called again and she said the CEL was flashing.  Again who really knows.
Anyone near Arvada with a VAG COM?  We are at 64th and Sheridan.  I am not going to be home for a while, but if anyone can help we would appreciate it and make it worth the trip or the help.  Oh yeah it is a 99 1.8T Passat.
Thanks,
Shawn

Shawn -

Sorry to hear the trouble, here is a link to a thread on this site with usernames of folks with vag-com (or similar) that may be able to help out.

If the CEL is flashing DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR. Obviously it could be a few different things, my guess is possibly coil packs at this point from the description.

So hopefully someone can come by and help you out.

Thanks for that link, I read it and sent out some emails.  I was just putting out a general SOS since I am all the way out here and sometimes my internet doesn't work.
I figure it is a COP also, but want to make sure before I have anything done to it.  I am sure someone will help a poor stranded Pregnant woman out!  LOL
Thanks again guys,
Shawn

I'll cross post this as well to a few other forums to try and get the word out and see if someone can help.

Also, JrAdrock on the tex as well offered up these pointers:

It looks like one of two things. 1 #3 coil pack could be bad. 2. Early 99 B5 1.8t ICM is bad (Ignition control module).

Before you go and get a new coil pack. If you still have access to the vag com, switch the #3 coil pack with the #1 coil pack. If the results change to the #1 coil pack on the vag com scan, then it is a bad coil pack (i believe) no more than $80. If it code doesn't change with the change of coil packs, read below.

To check if the car has an ICM (later 1.8t do not have this part), under the hood on the passenger side of the engine bay there is a plastic shroud that covers the airbox. The cover just pulls off. This will expose the top side of the airbox. If the car has an ICM it will be located on top of the airbox. It doesn't look like much. It has two connectors that connect to both sides and it is thin. If this is bad, expect about (i believe) $200-$400 dollars and about 5 seconds of work replacing it.

Check and make sure the plugs are in good condition and have a proper gap.

Good luck.

Coil packs. They're about $25/ea. at ECSTuning.com. If you have any hesitancy, get it to Randy at Autobahn. I'm also concerned about the ABS fault. It could be you have a bad switch at which point, you might not have any brake lights (happend on my GLI).

I know you're gone and someone else might be able to help or have a few CPs floating around.

Hey all, it is Shawn, was having a hard time signing in with my old password.  So just wanted to say thanks for the help Eric, you rock!! 
I am finally home and had a chance to get things going on the car and I have a problem!  I replaced all the coil packs and spark plugs.  I am getting NO spark to #3.  None nada.  I tried it out with a known good pack and still nothing.  All the other cylinders work.  Now I got my test light out and I am getting power to the connection on both sides and none to the middle.  That is the same as all the others.  I have no idea where to go next.  You guys are all pretty smart, where do I go next?  Any help is appreciated.
Oh yeah, break lights work, once I get this fixed I can work on the ABS problem.

Thanks all,
Shawn
