The only way you will find this out is to have a diagnostic machine plugged in and the fault memory read to check what fault is logged, it could be anything from a ABS wheel speed sensor to a control module fault, to save money in the long run i would advise you get the fault memory read first. hope this helps

Vw jetta vr6 battery and ABS light on


You could have an error code that caused the engine to shut off but that is really rare. There are a lot of things that cause the abs light to come on. Brake wear, faulty brake components, and/or sensors, reservoir levels.

Has it ever happened before? Has it happened again since the first time?

I'm trying to buy a good vw jetta, I found one


Most VW are interferance motors. That would mean the pistons could have hit some valves. I would stay away.
Also have you seen the motor? I may be off but I thought the VR6's had a chain. Even if, its still an interfernce motor.

Check for a hole in the brake system including calipers, lines, and all cylinders. Booster or master cylinder could be bad. Or, you're right. It could be a faulty ABS sensor. You will have to troubleshoot to be sure. Hope you get an A in your workshop.

My vw jetta vr6 1999 theabs light still on.the break pad and rottor was new.


abs light is on because there is a fault recorded in the abs system. a scan tool will be needed to get the recorded fault from the on board computor. It has nothing to do with the brake pads. It is usually an electrical problem.

Replaced front brakes ABS light comes on and


Hi:
The ABS light on means an ABS malfunction. You should be able to have a auto parts store scan your car and find out what code is tripped, for free, but my guess is that one of your front wheel speed sensors is out of whack, or dirty or something.
When the light is on, your normal brakes work fine, but you have no ABS, so your car will take longer to stop in emergency situations.

The turn signal relay is inside the hazard switch on the dash. Get a new one (about $30) and install that and you're cured:)

I cannot get a manuel for a vr6


Bentley Publishing is the ONLY place that publishes a Repair Manual for the VR6 Engines. I called them about the manual, the book is about $70. and the CDRom is about $99. The one I checked on was for my 1998 VW Jetta VR6, the manual they are sending me goes from 1993 to 1999 and has 4 and 6 cylinders!
