1999 Beetle Brake light & Beeping

I have a 1999 VW New Beetle. Randomly while I am driving the brake light will come on and beep 3 times in a row VERY loud. Sometimes it will do this 10 or 12 times constantly, but then other times I will drive and nothing will happen. I checked and have enough brake fluid, and i also had it inspected by my VW mechanic who couldn't find the source of the problem. Any solutions? It is VERY annoying

it would appear one of 2 things, the plug has come off the brake switch, {under dash} or the wire has been severed and is touching the body hence the light flashing and beeping. Only an inspection can resolve this issue. Good luck

Why are your using it-- for some time ?

When you start the motor or drive, and any dash light
comes on, you have problems & stop using it, & have it
checked for codes, to see the system with the fault, & get
it diagnosed & repaired,not continue to use it, & possibly
do damage to something

Brake light stays on with beeping sound


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.

The brake pedal switch on a 2001 VW Beetle is placed above pedals on the support.

1. Remove the cover panel above the driver's side foot well...

2. Locate old switch, push in brake pedal, and twist switch body to remove...

3. Unplug 4 pin connector from old switch and plug into new switch (it only goes one way...don't force it!). Insert new switch into frame and depress brake petal. You should turn it until it locks into place and is positioned like the original.

4. Start Bug. Press the brake pedal once or twice and the EPC light should go out ...

5. If it looks like that... great! Replace the cover over the foot well and you are done! If not, check the 4 pin connection and make sure it is fully seated in the switch. Also check to see if you can hear the switch engage when you press the brake pedal ... if not, you will need to remove the switch and adjust the push rod. The rod will move in and out for adjustment. Check to see if the brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal as well!

2000 vw beetle. The brake light on the dash flashed and there was a beeping sound. The brake pedal seems to go much lower these days and the car is not stopping as well as it used to..


pop the bonnet and check the oil in your resivior and look for leaks... if all looks ok it it may well be that your break servo may be on the way out

The brake lights (all 3) on my VW Sharan do not work although there is an intermittent flashing. At the same time the Glo Plug light is flashing. what is the cure?


There is a recall on the brake light switch. VW should replace it for free.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Defective brake lights on Golf, GTI, Jetta, New Beetle and R32 are a potential safety hazard and should be replaced. February 26, 2007 - NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Around 800,000 Volkswagen vehicles have been recalled Monday because of faulty brake lights, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.
The 790,000 vehicles include Jettas, New Beetles, Golfs, GTIs and R32s...all in the United States.
The specific years and models affected are:
  • 1999-2005 Jetta sedans
  • 2001-2005 Jetta wagons
  • 1998-2007 New Beetle
  • 2003-2007 New Beetle Convertibles
  • 1999-2006 Golfs and GTIs
  • 2004 R32
The malfunctioning brake lights and brake light switches could fail to come on or remain stuck on.
This recall expands on one announced by Europe's No. 1 carmaker last year, when 362,000 Jettas and New Beetles were recalled due to the same defective part.
Volkswagen said that dealers will immediately be prepared to accept service appointments to perform the repair at no charge, but the notification process isn't scheduled to begin until April.
NHTSA did not say if any injuries had been reported linked to the defective brake lights.

Brake light


Usually it means the handbrake is pulled up while you are driving the car. Have you noticed the car just isn't as zippy as it should be, or a hot smell from the rear of the car when exiting, or overly hot brake pads? Those are signs the brake is engaged.

If that is not the case then it could be a malfunction of the indicator. In either case it should be looked into as an engaged emergency brake can turn into a brake or rotor job if it's not addressed.
