One of the most common failures on VW Passat years 2005-2011 is the Steering Column Lock. Some of the symptoms displayed before it fails completely can range from several attempts to start the vehicle to display a warning light in the dashboard like this one:

QUESTIONS

When entering the vehicle and the key receiver signal or key reader signal has received correct identification, the ESCL automatically disengages, enabling free turn of the steering wheel. When leaving the vehicle with the right identification key and a disengaged engine, the ESCL automatically locks the VW Passat steering column.
