It will need to get a scan tool on it to remove the light as the abs unit would have logged a fault.

Did brakes and rotors on a 03 Passat and rear calipers. done this before just can't figure out why when I bleed the brakes pedal still goes to floor but there's no air in the system.Can anyonehelpme

Hi first of all you should bleed fervist away from the master cylinder,and when you bleed the back brakes are you shore that you kept the reserver full (we all make make mistakes some times)as if not it could have got air in the system,best thing to do is start again and bleed all the brakes and see if that puts it right,if not maybe the master cylinder is faulty,hope this was some help even though it sounds like you know what you are doing.

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.

I had this same problem back in November during a very cold spell.I had an appointment to have some "recall" work done on my 03 passat and told them about the STOP brake light. When I picked up my car, the dealer told me that it just needed some brake fluid??, so they filled it ! Well, I don't know about that, but I haven't seen that pesky STOP warning light since.

I have the same problem (along with traction light on).

Both of my rear brake lights are out - It seems that it might be the Brake Light Switch - which is above the brake pedal.

Got to check this tomorrow.

Bleeding brakes

Simple way - takes 2 people. Get a small jar, and fill it part way with some brake fluid. Then use a short length of hose (one that fits snugly over the bleed screw), and keep one end in the brake fluid. With the engine off, loosen the bleed screw, and have the brake pedal slowly depressed. Close the bleed screw BEFORE releasing the brake pedal, and repeat until no air bubbles come out the hose. Top up the brake reserve with fluid.
