    Thread: AFS Inoperative

    1. 06-26-2008 09:19 PM #1
      I recently got this error message on the dash display of my 2006 Passat 3.6 4-Mo. Any help with this message. I've been through the manuals and they are silent on the topic.

      Bring it to the dealer. I think there's a TSB for this...

      It's a known problem with the connector on the harness to the headlights. The connector comes off and the headlight is dead. They need to be wire-tied in place or something on that order. My right one went at 500 miles and the left at 5K miles. They have to remove the front bumper to do the work so tell them to address it on both sides or you'll be back later for the other.

      Good luck.

      Even better yet there is still an open service campaign on fixing them if your car has the park sensors. VW wanted to save a buck so instead of paying to pull the bumper to fix those and then later having to pull it for the headlights, they put them both in a service circular.

      IM me your email address and I'll send you "Service Action P8." Even if you don't have the park sensors, it'll still talk about and show the fix for the AFS problem.
