Need to replace the Oxygen sensor on the exhaust. This is a maintenance issue, every modern car will eventually need this to be done. Not very difficult or technical, so not necessary to be ripped off by dealer, find a cheaper mechanic.

most of the new cars with such computer system to control the engine and other functions , such as brakes, anti-freeze level, that why the light on and tell you that you should watch out certain things, you still can drive the car, but you have to go to the dealer and let them check you car and reset the computer system and then all the light will be off.

Check to see are your brake light working! if not you have a faulty brake light switch - 10 min repair job at your local VW service centre. With no brake lights you'll need to get it seen to ASAP!!

The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple

SOURCE: my 2002 vw passat esp light comes on when you turn the engine on

Hi Amanda
I have come up against this problem a few times before.
If the ABS. light is NOT on, and its the ESP light only that is on...your problem may well be a faulty Yaw sensor. This unit is fitted to the floor panel under the rear seat...in the centre. Another problem (although not all that common) is a faulty ESP switch. You should have an OBD code reading done to make sure. If a new YAW sensor must be fitted, the car must be driven with a full steering lock in both directions (left and right) at a speed over 20 Km per hour after fitting. If this is not done the light will remain on, even though it will now drive ok.
As for the price of this unit...Here in Ireland it costs around 140 euro. Hopefully its cheaper where you are. So better to have the codes read first.
I hope this is of some help to you.
Good luck with it
John

The Warning Light Comes on "Stop Engine Low Oil Pressure" what does this mean


car needs oil pressure or bearings will wear out in short time. Do not drive or start engine with this light on. Might only be pressure sending unit. Can replace sending unit and start briefly to see if problem resolves. If light still stays on, shut off engine and have oil pump replaced.

I have a 2005 VW Passat TDI140 and recently it started tripping to low power when towing my caravan. Switching the ignition off and on reset the problem. However it repeated say 6/7 times during a 200mile...


However you have not mentioned the miles done on your Passat. If you have done the sceduled mandatory service the engine must not loose out on power when given a larger load. However it seems as advised that when the load is required your turbo seems defeated not giving out the extra power. If possible you must take a second opinion if the turbo action can be checked with a lesser cost of service. Also please check on your caravan wheels for any signs of drag, check on tyre pressures, check on fuel type used. Hope I could help. Good day .

"emissions garage" warning light


this could be due to a large variety of possible different faults, the only way to tell is to take to a garage for it to be plugged in to a diagnostic code reader. Not always serious, somtimes as simple as an engine coolant temperature sensor fault, cheap to buy and quick to replace.

Yes the wires may be "vibrating" when the car is driven so it trips the brake sensor.
