Assuming you mean that it turns on all the time, you will need to check the switch under the driver side of the dash. This switch is designed to touch the back of the brake pedal when you release the brake. If it has looks broken, the part needs to be replaced. If it does not touch the back of the pedal, you need to unscrew it a bit until it does. If left alone it will run your battery down.

I have no brake lights. On my tdi 2000 jetta


Did you check the bulbs into taillamps and fuses?If they are O.K. check brake light switch,located on the top of brake pedal with two wires connector.Disconnect the plug and short with wire.Check brake lights at the back.If O.K. check the switch.Some models use self adjusting switch.Just pull out the front part of the switch and put him back.

I have a 2000 jetta tdi and the glow light keeps coming on. When it does come on the car stutters and acts as if it's going to stall. However, it's not died yet. Help?


it is the brake light switch- the car is thinking the brakes are being applied. There was a recall on most cars- call a stealership and have then run your VIN # to see if it applies to your car

2000 VW Jetta E-Brake Light indicator beeps when brake is off


I fixed mine!! First check your ebrake switch by starting your vw and putting the ebrake on. If your daytime running lights stay on when the ebrake is engaged, its NOT the switch. Stay with me here. Turn vw off and pull fuse number 5. Mine was blown, but the legend only shows a pic of a book with an exclamation point. Meaning the book will tell you what it is, BUT IT DOESN'T . I replaced the 7.5 amp fuse and voila, victory. If it is not number 5, pull every fuse one at a time and inspect them closely. Do not assume, check each one. That is how I found mine after I bought and replaced the $10 switch. Running lights stay on because the switch is not being acknowledged, not because it is bad. I searched every forum I could find on this and there were no answers to this problem anywhere. So I am posting so there is an answer out there. What put me on the right track was the running lights staying on when the ebrake was engaged after I put in the new switch.

Service light came on in my 2000 jetta vr6 it looks like this (0) I do not have a manual for the car. Does anybody know what that light means?


it means you need to by brakes from the vw place witch is about $80.... you cant buy the aftermarket ones b/c they don't have a senser that plugs in to the car to turn the light off.... the after market ones are alot cheaper

Auto gearshift lock on 2000 jetta won't unlock


Check and make sure the brake lights work, if the system doesn't get a signal that the brake pedal is pressed it won't come out of part, it is the park interlock safety feature, the problem won't be bulbs, it will be a brake light switch problem, if the brake light do work, the next place to look is the park release solenoid, it will be on the steering column most likely down low under the dash.
