Yes you can if the battery is the problem. connect the red on car with good battery to the positive ( + ) terminal, then the red on the dead battery, connect the black to the negative ( - ) on the good battery and the black to a good chassis ground( exposed metal in engine bay ) a good spot is the strut mount bolt.
On a Passat, the battery is located under the hood. It is under the cowl panel and requires the removal of the battery cover to see it.
try to disconnect the battery for an hour and then connect it back on. solved my problem.
