SOURCE: VW passatt warning lights staying on

Check the wires that are going to the brake pad sensors.Some shops will install pads that don't have the sensor connections on them, causing this light to stay lit.

SOURCE: VW Passat STOP brake fault warning

Check the fluid level in the resevoir. If it is low then top it up. However, it went low for a reason - maybe it's just because your brake pads starting to wear out or you could possibly have a brake fluid leak.

If your in any doubt have a pro check it out.

My 1998 vw beetle wont shift into drive y


Brake light switches were an issue with VW. It is possible that the brake switch malfunctioned and not allowing the shifter lock to release. Make sure your brake lifts work. If they do then the issue may be in the shifter lock.

The brake lights (all 3) on my VW Sharan do not work although there is an intermittent flashing. At the same time the Glo Plug light is flashing. what is the cure?


There is a recall on the brake light switch. VW should replace it for free.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Defective brake lights on Golf, GTI, Jetta, New Beetle and R32 are a potential safety hazard and should be replaced. February 26, 2007 - NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Around 800,000 Volkswagen vehicles have been recalled Monday because of faulty brake lights, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.
The 790,000 vehicles include Jettas, New Beetles, Golfs, GTIs and R32s...all in the United States.
The specific years and models affected are:
  • 1999-2005 Jetta sedans
  • 2001-2005 Jetta wagons
  • 1998-2007 New Beetle
  • 2003-2007 New Beetle Convertibles
  • 1999-2006 Golfs and GTIs
  • 2004 R32
The malfunctioning brake lights and brake light switches could fail to come on or remain stuck on.
This recall expands on one announced by Europe's No. 1 carmaker last year, when 362,000 Jettas and New Beetles were recalled due to the same defective part.
Volkswagen said that dealers will immediately be prepared to accept service appointments to perform the repair at no charge, but the notification process isn't scheduled to begin until April.
NHTSA did not say if any injuries had been reported linked to the defective brake lights.

Where is the backup light switch located....exactly


Inside the vehicle, mounted at the top of your brake pedel. Tough to get to and not an easy replacement for a novice. There has been a recall on the original brake light switches on most all of the early VW Beetles. You can get more information regarding the recall from your VW Dealer. The switch on my 1998 VW Beetele was replaced twice early on.

1989 VW beatle. engine running will not go into


I'm going to assume it is an automatic transmission,

Check the brake switch for malfunction,

NOT the brake......the brake light switch,

The cruise control,brake light and shift lever over ride all connected to rhe same circuit.

Check all fuse first,bulbs and move onto checking the brake switch,
