Has anyone had this problem, and if so, was it fixed? It seems these lemmings could neither use a clutch nor operate a… It seems someone wanted to drive our long-term Passat even more than we did, as it disappeared into the night shortly after the last update. Any advise would be appreciated. It does not matter if I'm on a highway or a residential street - the car will suddenly kick in and increase speed. Remedy Gates will notify owners, and dealers will replace the water pump, free of charge. Bilstein has set the standard in shock absorber and suspension components since they invented the first monotube, gas-pressure shock in the 1950s. The vehicle would not start at times.
Feels like car is going to take off, right into an intersection. Then the vehicle decelerates to the proper speed. After that you will have to find the cruise control module located under the center console for further tests. The car has also slowed itself, under the adaptive cruise control, in other situations where there was no vehicle in front of it. In the affected water pumps, the pulley or sprocket that turns the timing belt may develop microfractures causing the timing belt to fail. Like other posts, its very quirky; sometimes I can re-engage it, other times I have to wait 20 minutes; other times, it works perfectly. My first indication of failure was the brake lights remained on after shutting down the car.
Does it matter that my car is 5 speed? The tachometer showed the engine revving up over the red line to 7000 rpms. Dealership stated that they talked with manufacturer and they are going to give me a new turbocharger and new engine. After about 10 minutes I restarted the car and no warning flashed so I began to drive car. If the module is the problem, check the ground and the power connections. I have a 2004 Passat that I purchased on May 24. After a thorough service, the transmission still wouldn't properly engage. With the second restart of the car it ran normal and I completed the remaining 4-5 miles to work.
Then, vehicle continued to accelerate, once getting onto the highway, to 72 mph. Also follow the vacuum hose through the firewall to the vacuum pump on the left fenderwell. The manufacturer was not contacted. If there is no problem there, you need to replace the module. Well, the other day I hooked my foot under the brake pedal, pulled upward and bingo, it came on! Cruise Control Switch — The switch is either on the steering wheel or on the column. Tried to reset cruise control to a lesser speed and would not set. So browse around our great selection of car parts and let's help with that auto repair or car upgrade! Had car towed to dealership.
The actuator loosens the linkage for less throttle when going down a hill. It also monitors the transmission in order to determine which gear it is in, and it knows what position the brake pedal is in as well. The contact sustained minor injuries of powder burn from the air bag. I've tried pulling up on the break and clutch, holding the set botton for 5+ secs, but nothing is working. At the end of the last episode, the car was producing smoke from the front wheel wells likely because of braking against the acceleration. I bought it 2 mnths ago I am the second owner.
To change this, simply continue pressing the Adaptive Cruise Control button mentioned in step 5. I made sure the cruise control was off during each of these episodes since the car seemed like it was trying to go into cruise control when this problem occurred, but with no maximum speed set -- I. When it worked, it used to come off all of a sudden sometimes. Pinging is currently not allowed. When your cruise control system is on the verge of failing, it starts to give you problems.
The contact stated while driving with the cruise control function at 72 mph and attempting to decrease speed, the cruise control would not disengage. This continued for several miles and eventually the accelerator began operating normally. The next day, consumer took the vehicle to the dealers for inspection, where it remained. It had nearly a half tank and there were no warning lights on. The consumer requested assistance of all the matters. Would this explain why my cruise control on my 1999 passat comes off periodically when i go over a hill? You coast until you need more throttle. The car continued to operate normally for another 500 miles until I noticed the cruise control was out.

Same goes for the clutch if you have a vehicle with a manual transmission, obviously. The system works through data that is retrieved and shared by way of sensors and computers. The gas pedal would depress beneath my foot without my pushing it and the car would accelerate without stopping. It doesn't always work to hook the pedal, but I think that's the problem. The car is still in the shop and repairs have not been completed at the time of this writing.
