Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
First check your parking brake is fully released. If the parking brake lever is slighty applied. It will give you the "BRAKE" or(!) warning light and the chime will sound.---- Get the brake system cleaned , might just be a wheel sensor. Mine acts up every now and again, it beeps and flashes.Get rake pads and brake fluid checked.
Sounds like the caliper isnt sliding to equalize pressure on both sides of the rotor. A proper lubrication is required.--------
A sticky sensor switch on the e-brake persuading the ECU that the e-brake is on when it isn't? Brake fluid level low? There is a level sensor in the reservoir that turns on the same light as the e-brake.--- Another thing to check: Are your DRLs (Daytime Running Lights) on? Normally the DRLs turn themselves off when you pull up the parking brake lever. See if they go on and off when you pull up and down the lever - this might tell you if the parking brake switch is not working.
----------Also check the cap of the plastic container that holds the brake fluid , if its off or loose then this problem will appear.
Also if all checked ok then it can be faulty ABS module causing the problem.-------
This troubleshooting will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
