Volkswagen Passat Problem Report
Volkswagen Passat ABS Light Due to Control Module Failure
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module may fail causing the ABS light to illuminate. Failed modules should be replaced to restore ABS operation.
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. - Visitor
