ABS light is now continuously on and brake light is flashing. Earlier, the two would just flash 3 times with a beep every once in a while, say when I went over a bump or turned sharply.
ABS module failed at 89,000 miles. Pulled ABS module apart and found one hair fine wire separated from the circuit board. Made the repair myself, not for the beginner but doable with some skill. Step by step technique is posted on internet. Total cost about 2.5 hours of my time.
ABS and Brake light flash. Is this covered under recall.
my abs light comes on but goes away notice a noise in the front end when stopping which i think is electrical issues due to this problem
Same as most others. Beeping, flashing, and "Brake Fault" warning.
ABS+Break lights stay ON. Failed SMOG check communication with the OBD.
ABS Light on
I have been having non stop problems with the "brake fault" light for thr past week and just don't know why all of sudden it would be coming on?? Feels like the breaks go all the way down to the floor now. Just really worried. Don't have the money to spend at a shop but willing to fix on my own. Any suggestions on where to begin ??
I have a abs light engine light and flashing brake light on in my 2004 jetta. Don't know what to do, the abs system was replaced before I bought my car and now it is back. I can't pass inspection due to the engine light being on.
When the ABS controller malfunctioned, it also caused many of the control panel controls to fail, including the tach, oil light, and others. A new controller fixed the problem. The dealer wanted $750, but did it for $500
had this for 30000 miles, goto www.passatworld.com guys on there that fix it for $100
Exceleration is delayed when stopped or turning at a slow pace. Looking for a solution.
