Question about 2000 Volkswagen Passat 4Motion
We have a 2000 Volkswagon Passat Wagon and for the past week the STOP! warning light comes on along with a warning "beep" for one second when we turn the ignition on. The Break and ABS light also come on (but always have) and turn off after a second as well. I seem to remember this STOP! happening before when we had the Break Control Module fixed 2-years ago but at that time the break light would stay on and not turn off. Is this the same thing? Do Break Control Modules "go bad" after only 2-years?!
Indicator may appear if there is a particular sensor fails.
Try resetting it using the following technique.
Sometimes the problem could be solved.
Advantage is you could use this technique in the future too.
If you can get an OBD 2 scanner off eBay (US$ 6), you could be able to communicate with your car ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using the smart-phone app.
So that, there is a chance to CLEAR all the error indications.
After that, still problem persists, it means the vehicle need full scan (you can't do this at home, probably seek a vehicle garage).

OKEY TRY TO GET A CODE WITH SCAN TOOL AND IF YOU CANNOT CONTACT WITH YOUR ECM YOU HAVE TO GET FIX YOUR ABS CONTROL UNIT.
BOSH ABS MODULE GIVES PROBLEM ON THAT MODELS I HAVE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 1999 PASSAT V6 I SENDED MY PART TO GET FIX AND WAITING FOR THE COME BACK.
I DRAIN THE BRAKE FLUID FOR THE FIX LEAK FROM MY CALIPER AND I REMOVE THE ABS UNIT AND TAKE THE ELECTRONIC MODULE OUT AND SEND THE FOR THE REPAIR.

i think that is sound advice. these kinds of "tune up" items shouls all be replaced at the same time and be sure that you are using the parts the manufacturer calls for, not whats on sale. you have a good car.

Check your rear drum brakes a.s.a.p as they might have wheel cylinder leaks and your master brake cylinder will be low on brake fluid as the sensor for low level will leave the light on permenently.The rear wheel cylinders might not be visible but the leaking brake fluid usaully is but if not start at the master cylinder.Is the fluid level correct,does the brake pedal feel soft or spongy, is there fluid on the inside of the wheel/tyre.Rare for the handbrake switch to be faulty but may need lube but likely a brake leak.If unsure remove the rear wheels to be on the safe side of things.If all is okay the it will be a sensor on the master cylinder or the handbrake switch(but i doubt it).
