The boot catch switch is faulty. Its leaving the boot light switched on permanently causing vaultage drop, triggering the alarm.

1997 VW Golf GTI 2 Litre. The ABS light comes on


Hello, My 2000 2.0 Golf just recently had the same problem. I would feel the ABS pump working at certain times through the accelerator pedal. I found the right rear sensor failed the Bentley manual continuity test . After removing it I found it was pretty rusted. The sensor head is located inside the rear brake disc hub area and this probably explained this rust. The rust probably worked its way into the sensor body where you can't clean it and thus the resistance value went above specification. I ordered mine through Autohaus and cost me just over $50.00 for both rear sensors. Even though my drivers side was good I replaced it at the same time. The ABS light hasn't been on for 4 days now..

I have a 55 plate VW Golf 2.0 Fsi - the alarm keeps going off by itself! We disconnected the battery last night (to get some sleep!) and it's started again today.... agh, HELP!


You probably have a faulty door,boot or bonnet lock.If you put the inside light switch to the setting for the light to come on when the doors are open,close all the doors and see if the light goes off.If your model golf has a display on the dash,it shuold tell you which door is open.It could also be a faulty interior sensor or a faulty alarm horn.A diagnostic machine will be able to tell you which was the last alarm activation.

The VW Golf (2002) I have is setting off the alarm, the dash indicates that the tailgate is open, but appears to be closed. Is there a sensor on the tailgate that may be faulty?


The micro-switch is fitted inthe lock of the tailgate.Try opening the tailgate and manually close the lock and see if the boot light and the dash indicater light go off,if not,replace boot lock.If the lights go off,tailgate not closing properly,adjust the boot lock catch.Good luck
