Volkswagen Passat P0335: Crankshaft Position Sensor “A” Circuit Malfunction

The Volkswagen Passat utilizes a crankshaft position sensor in order to regulate the engine timing. This sensor uses a reluctor to gauge the position of the crank. When the Passat’s ECM determines that there is an issue with the signal coming from this sensor, it’ll throw the P0335 trouble code.   P0335 Symptoms: Volkswagen Passat … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0335: Crankshaft Position Sensor “A” Circuit Malfunction

Volkswagen Passat P0138: Oxygen Sensor High Voltage (Bank 1 -Sensor 2)

  P0138 is a common OBDII code that occurs in many vehicles, including theVolkswagen Passat. The code is triggered when: The voltage at the sensor remains above threshold for 20 seconds or more Voltage to the sensor is to high (wiring problem, think short) Bad O2 sensor itself There are also some less likely problems … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0138: Oxygen Sensor High Voltage (Bank 1 -Sensor 2)

Volkswagen Passat P0133: Oxygen Sensor Slow Response (Bank 1 -Sensor 1)

  P0133 is a common OBDII code that occurs in many vehicles, including theVolkswagen Passat. The code is triggered when there is an issue with the response time from the oxygen (O2) sensor when switching voltage levels. The O2 sensor is responsible for helping the ECM meter oxygen levels in the exhaust in order to … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0133: Oxygen Sensor Slow Response (Bank 1 -Sensor 1)

Volkswagen Passat P0132: Oxygen Sensor High Voltage (Bank 1 -Sensor 1)

    P0132 is a common OBDII code that occurs in many vehicles, including the Volkswagen Passat. The code is triggered when: The voltage at the sensor remains above threshold for 20 seconds or more. The air fuel sensor stays in rich biased mode for too long. There are also some less likely problems that can … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0132: Oxygen Sensor High Voltage (Bank 1 -Sensor 1)

Volkswagen Passat P0131: O2 Sensor Low Voltage (Bank 1 -Sensor 1)

P0131 is a common OBDII code that occurs in many vehicles, including the Volkswagen Passat. It is letting you know that there is an issue with the wiring or harness going to the sensor, or the sensor itself is bad. There are also some less likely problems that can cause P0131. We’ll go over those below. … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0131: O2 Sensor Low Voltage (Bank 1 -Sensor 1)

Volkswagen Passat P0330: Knock Sensor ” Bank 2″ – Circuit Malfunction

  P0330 is a powertrain OBDII trouble code that has the same meaning for the Volkswagen Passat as it would any other vehicle. By definition, it means that the vehicles ECM/PCM isn’t getting the proper signal from the knock sensor. Clearing this code typically requires a new knock sensor. The second most common cause is … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0330: Knock Sensor ” Bank 2″ – Circuit Malfunction

Volkswagen Passat P0130: O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 – Sensor 1)

P0130 is a very common OBDII code that occurs in the Volkswagen Passat. It is typically caused when the Oxygen Sensor voltage is not within normal operating conditions. Volkswagen Passat P0130 Symptoms Typically, the only symptom of P0130 is going to be the service engine soon light. In some cases, there can be other symptoms … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0130: O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 – Sensor 1)

Volkswagen Passat P0161: Heated O2 Sensor – Performance | Bank 2 Sensor 2

P0161 is a very common OBDII code that occurs in the Volkswagen Passat. It is typically caused by a failure in one of the elements that heat the oxygen sensors, specifically bank 2 sensor 2. Replacing the Oxygen sensor will fix the problem a majority of the time. Some of the other causes of P0161 … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0161: Heated O2 Sensor – Performance | Bank 2 Sensor 2

Volkswagen Passat P0155: O2 Sensor – Heating Element Failed (Bank 2 – Sensor 1)

P0155 is a very common OBDII code that occurs in the Volkswagen Passat. It is caused by a failure in one of the oxygen sensors heated elements, specifically bank 2 sensor 1. The purpose of the heated element in the oxygen sensor is to quickly bring your O2 sensor up to normal operating temperature after … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0155: O2 Sensor – Heating Element Failed (Bank 2 – Sensor 1)

Volkswagen Passat P0017: Crank/Cam Position Correlation – Bank 1 Sensor “B”

  P0017 in the Volkswagen Passat is predominantly caused by a few different things. It is typically thrown when the Crankshaft Position Sensor and the Camshaft Position Sensor are out of alignment by a certain number of degrees, or if there is an issue with the wiring, or one of the sensors themselves may have … Read moreVolkswagen Passat P0017: Crank/Cam Position Correlation – Bank 1 Sensor “B”
