    hi the warning light may be brake fluid level low ? if so top up but make sure there is no leak from the system ie wheel cylinders/pipes etc if ok then check your brake pads are not worne down to point of activating the pads wear indicator/s all this is assuming the engine is performing ok ?

I did the brakes on my 03 Passat about 2 years ago and the same thing happened to me. I took it to several places to have them figure it out any many wanted to charge an arm and a leg. With severe hesitation I took VW and they said it was a recall sensor item and would cost nothing to fix. So you may want to give VW a call and see if it is the same sensor issue.

Guys, what you are experiencing is the car built warning system. When your engine light blinks it indicates a Major Problem has occurred or is occurring in the engine. When this occurs the cars goes into a "safe," mode which means all power is cut by at least half in an effort to save the car from more major damage. You can take your VW to any large chain autoparts store (autozone, advance, etc) a lot of them are offering a free engine diagnosis. Do this if possible to see where the problems maybe coming from and ways to fix them.
