Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat
Had problem with rear wheel drivers side, rear pad disintegrated the disc, had pads and disc replaced, then wouldn't bleed, abs ecu was removed and another was tried but made no differences. got brakes bled and put original abs ecu back but warning lights stay on. had diagnostics checked, few errors shown and fixed, tried to reset and each time it was tried the abs ecu switched off and would not reset and continues to show warning lights, as soon as the car speeds over 20kph gives warning sound

I have experienced problems with my Passat, when working on the brakes it is very easy to hit the sensors, these are a push fit, if they are not fully home the light comes on. simply push the sensors until they click home.
On a side issue I have problems with the traction control affecting acceleration in a corner, I traced this to a garage fiting a 60% tyre instead of a 65% tyre
Hope this helps

Sounds like the sound when you leave the handbrake on. The same light as the low brake oil level will come on with the handbrake. And the warning sound coming from the cluster will come on if you leave the handbrake on and start driving to warn you that you left it on. Guessing your handbrake is not on and that your brake level sensor on the master cylinder is good (on the cap) check your handbrake switch and the wires there. You can unplug it and try it like that or you might have to bypass the 2 wires in the connector together. I can't remeber if with the handbrake on if it closes the circuit or the opposite. Once you have the connector in your hand you can unplug it with the car running and see if the light goes off. If not you can jump the 2 wires and see then. Or just check the switch isn't staying stuck. You'll see more once the handrake console is off. Just look around the mechanism of the handbrake and you'll find the switch.

nope,it has to go back to a dealer(the computer is too expensive for a diy mech)they will reset it IF GENUINE parts have been used, as sensors are inbuilt into the pads.
