Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat

Same here! ABS & oil lights come on, tachometer stops & no AC

I'm embarrassed to say this started happening in my 1999 Volkswagen Passat V8 last year. The ABS light comes on, as does the the oil icon, and it beeps three times (LOUDLY). Also, the tachometer stops functioning. If my AC is on when this happens, it stops cooling. In my car this seems to occur randomly. I took it to my mechanic and he ran a diagnostic and couldn't find anything wrong. He said it must be a malfunctioning computer module (or something to that effect). He quoted me $1,500 to replace the computer module, but since he couldn't find anything wrong, he wouldn't recommend I have the work done. I'm sorry you are having this problem too. I feel a bit better knowing I'm not the only person having to deal with this.

I had the same problem with my 1999 vw Passat. I took it in and they told me that my ABS module is bad. They unhooked the ABS module and the tach works and the oil light is now off. The ABS and brake light are now on. Here is a web site that was recomended to me to have one rebuilt. http://www.modulemaster.com/en/Volkswagen/index.php

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.

i can guarantee that you have several shorts in your wiring harness that is leading to all of your accessories and switches. find the electrical shorts and you will fix your problem. also your sensors (idiot lights) are popping on because of defective connections in the wiring. also check all of your relay circuits and fuses.

Brake/ABS/Traction lights on plus no AC


These problems do not seem to be related at all. The cause of the warm ac air could be several things from a low refrigerant charge to a plugged condensor fins to the compressor clutch not kicking in. You just have to follow a systematic approach when diagnosing these problems.

Oil light and brake lights blinks on and off and abs light is on


Just a idea. If the car is running at idle and the oil light blinks , it usually from low oil pressure. At a idle your seeing the light respond to the revolutions of the engine. ! thing to try is to replace the oil pressure switch on the engine block. And #2, Most causes in a VW is that the vehicle overheated at one time and weekend the oil pump,or massive amount of miles.
