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

This happens to my 07 Passat with the check engine light

A light came on with an exclamation point and cresent moon , what is this


This is the symbol for worn brake pads. The warning light means it is time for you to have the brake pads replaced. Do not ignore this warning or you will ruin the rotors.

I have a warning light on my dash. It is a circle with 3 dotted lines to the left and to the right of the circle. could you tell me what this means?


Check your brake pads for wear. If worn replace. If not check the wires to the pads. If these wires are broken...the light will illuminate although the brake pads may be fine
Good luck with it

Parking brake light turns on while driving down the road. with the parking brake off.


hi from uk if you are saying the parkbrake warning light on dash comes on whilst driving ?? this light/warning is also linked to the brake fluid reservoir level and if level is low ? it will cause parkbrake light to come on the low fluid level may be simply the displacement of fluid as the brakepads/shoes wear thin over time so req's topping up however !if fluid is very low? may i suggest you make sure you do not have a leak somewhere ie cylinders? considering age of vehicle might be worth checkingbrke pads if not recently replaced ? and renew them if req'd? hope this helps ?
