Re: 4 Faults detected on engine diagnostics check
Clear the trouble codes with a scanner and see if they come back, when faced with many codes this is the best thing to do, the codes may have been set during some kind of work being done on the car, the real hard faults will return and switch on the light if the problem is still present this will occur in about 10-15 miles of mixed driving, like city and highway, this is called a normal drive cycle. Let me know what codes return if any at my email address of firstname.lastname@example.org for further free help with this.

this could simply be a loose connection on the handbrake switch but this light is also the brake fluid level warning light so it might be a good idea to check the brake fluid level too. also it might be part of the brake pad warning system ane may indicate that the brake pads are nearing replacement it is also required to replace the warning wires with the pads
i think the light you are seeing is the cruise control indicator. its not faulty , just switched on. the switch is on the indicator stalk. on later model they changed it so this light would only come on when you had set your speed.
First thing i would check is every ground source I could find . Ground connections at battery, fuse blocks etc. & also check to see if you can find any ground straps running from engine to firewall under hood, or frame to firewall, and make sure all are clean& in good shape, making good contact, and tight.
There's one more thing you can try. On a Mk4 VW, you can reset the service indicator by doing the following:
- With the ignition off, press and hold the tripmeter reset button (on the right side of the dash) - Turn on your ignition, wait for all the warning lights to come on, then let go of the tripmeter button - Where your trip distance is normally shown, the display will read "OIL". - To reset the service interval, turn the clock adjust switch (left side) for about 5 seconds. The trip meter display will change to "---" indicating the code has been reset.
You can verify this by turning the car off and on again. Let me know if that worked out for you.
Hi A J Mae,
Do you mean the traffic indicators,( turn signals) or do you mean the dash board indicator lamps? If it's the dash warning lamp indicators, they work on a fail safe system, when you turn the ignition on before the start position, all the lights will come on untill start up and ten they will go off automatically within a second or two....if they stay on with the engine runnig you have a problem we have not covered here.
That will be your hazard warning switch, the one that will be flashing on the dash with a triangle showing on it....If that doesn't do it it'll be something to do with the anti theft device...get out of the car lock all the doors and then press the button on the key fob
I believe that corroded terminals in the light cluster can cause the warning light to come on.
But I once read that there is something else, entirely unrelated to the indicators themselves, that can cause this warning. Possibly another system powered through the same fuse or relay...When I remember what it is I will get back to you. It's pretty late here in Scotland. :-)
Check the fuses under the dash as the first job. If it is not one of these, it is probably a faulty flasher relay. These are a simple plug- in replacement, but may be behind the fuse panel. This will come out with a couple of screws removed.
If this solves the problem for you, Plese take a moment to rate as fixya! Thanks.
