I pulled the ABS fuse out while the car was running and the car shut off. It wont start back up again. The battery, starter, fuses and relays are fine. What can I do to fix the problem?

I’m having a problem with a check engine light that indicates the fuel mixture is burning to lean / post O2 sensor reading.
I recently purchased this vehicle from a private seller whom I’m in contact with.
It’s a CARB emissions car, and he recently changed the preO2 sensor, but doesn’t know if he used a cali-emissions compliant sensor.
I’m wondering if the 02 sensor (pre) could be the cause of the fault. I don’t want to replace the cat-converter unnecessarily. … that’s very expensive guess work.

Any suggestions?

We purchased this bug a few weeks ago. We are getting a P0327 error code which is for #1 knock sensor. The car only has one knock sensor in the #2 position. There is no wiring for the #1. One mechanic said it only has one sensor. So why are we getting a code for a sensor that is not there. We have changed the #2 sensor and checked the wiring, still getting the code.

I need help! My 06 Jetta will not start. It will not turn over and the brakes have become extremely hard to push. Lights and all come on. Tried to jump it to no avail. What could it be?

My daughter just had her alternator replaced on a 2002 Volkswagen Passat. After she picked up her car from the shop the stereo is dead. No lights, nothing. Its not the security code because it doesn’t even work to input the code. She took It back to the shop they checked her fuses etc. They said it has nothing to do with them replacing the alternator and is not their problem. Which I understand to a degree, but the stereo worked just fine before the service. Am I crazy to think it might have been something they did?

Hello, I have a VW Passat [Estate] from 2006 and I’ve recently been having issues with it. A light appears on the dashboard. I went to a Mechanic and he tested it. The computer found a fault, code: 012600 P3138-006 Intake manifold Runner Control : Regulation Deviation. I changed the valve, the light on the dashboard no longer appears but I can still hear a noise in the engine when I accelerate.
