I have an 03 beetle and my esp and abs lights have come on the breaks seem fine and i haven't kerbed it or anything ?????


the esp and abs lights are on because there is an electrical fault in the abs system. this is not a safety concern and your brakes will function properly however in order for the lights to go off you will need to have it diagnosed with a scan tool. the problem is probably a bad front wheel speed sensor.

Got a light on by my spedo and dont no what it for it is a orange triangle with a ! mark in it and an arrow arawnd it all orange it is next to the abs light on my vw passat please can u help me anna


I'm guessing you do not have an owners manual to check! If not I think it is the ESP warning light which is linked to abs, I'm sure this will need vw diagnostic machine to fix

Brake light is off


There's a recall on your issue. Take it to the dealership.
You likely have a defective brake light switch.

NEWS: Volkswagen recalls nearly 800,000 cars
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.

Is it yellow or red? Sounds like a waring light for used front brake pads.
