Your anti-lock brakes are activating. The computer thinks that a wheel is locking up and pulses the brakes for a controlled stop. If you don't physically have a wheel locking up when you brake, then you need to get the wheel sensors checked.

2003 VW Passat wagon, trunk alarm keeps indicating the luggage compartment is open and alarm goes off. Many dealer attempts to fix have failed. Is there a specific fuse for the trunk latch/alarm?


Hi

You have to replace the latch of your trunk. The contact is in the latch and most of the time you have to change the wire and the connector because they are oxided and make a resistance.

If I remember well you cannot remove any fuse to solve your problem because the fuse will affect some interior lamps and door lock system.

I had the same problem on a VW Golf

VW Passat STOP brake fault warning


Check the fluid level in the resevoir. If it is low then top it up. However, it went low for a reason - maybe it's just because your brake pads starting to wear out or you could possibly have a brake fluid leak.

If your in any doubt have a pro check it out.

2002 VW passat wagon brakes


Check the level of the brake fluid, as the pads wear down the fluid level falls slightly and the sensor reacts and gives the warning, it may happen more as you are cornering and the brake fluid moves, try gently topping up the brake fluid it doesn't need much..
