Customer Question

2006 VW Passat 2.0T Fuel pump will not turn off unless fuse is removed. Even with key removed. I beleave I have the corect relay removed, but not sure
JA: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?
Customer: 102K & car starts & runs fine. But battery goes dead
JA: Are you fixing your Passat yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have a repair shop & we just starting to work on it. We found why the batt. goes dead due to the fuel pump running all the time.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: The vin. number is ***** I want to know the correct relay for the fuel pump. Did any one else have this problem.

Lift the rear seat, and check the fuel pump module on top of the access cover there. These have been fairly problematic, I have seen several that have melted down, and sometimes even when they look OK, if you sniff them they smell like burning electrical.
