There are reports of problems with the ABS control module on Passats of your vintage, and that could certainly be the cause of your problem. Take the car to an experienced VW mechanic who should be aware of the issue and able to fix it at reasonable cost.

Passat pricing

Answered by CarsGuide 18 Aug 2005

IF YOU sold it to a dealer you'd get about $18,000 at best. Privately you'd get $24,000-$25,000. That's the best way to go if you're happy to spend your weekends by the phone and have strangers calling at your home.
