Hi,

Based on your description, if it is red that would be the "Brake System" warning light. This warning light indicates that the hand brake or the park brakes are engaged. Alternately, this could also indicate that the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir is below nominal. Top off brake fluid if low and have your brake pads checked as well as visually inspect for any possible brake fluid leak.

On the other hand if it is yellow that would be the ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Momentary lighting up would be normal at startup but consistent light would indicate a malfunction in the brake system such as either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid level and have your vehicle's brakes checked.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I would check the ground for the plate lights. You have to remove the steering wheel and dash trim to get to the cluster for removal. Let me know if you need to know how to remove the cluster.

Constant light on dashboard


My '01 TDI had the same issue and apparently it was a switch gone bad behind the horn and airbag. . . so no idea if the airbag would have worked had I been in an accident. Definately worth going to VW and having it looked at though. Better safe than sorry.
