    I have the same issue, but on the left side in the rear, there is a plastic storage box mounted to the side of the car, so i don't have access to the brake light. Do I need to remove the box and access the lamps from the back, or take off the lens from the outside somehow?



    Thanks!

    Removing the carpet on the rear drivers die to replace the brake light only reveals a plastic unit (used for Preamp/CD Changer). Can not get to brake light without removing something? How do I do this?

Good day;
In your trunk area there should be a piece of carpet by your tail light just move that to the side and then you can access your bulb. Any problems please let me know.

Cheers

How to fix a tail light problem for a 1999 vw passat, brakes light, signal lights and stop lights work perfectly


The brake pedal whenever pressed open the circuit to complete the circuit which turns on the brake lights. Its like if the brake pedal is not depressed the circuit is bypassing the light. So when this short-cut is opened current has to go via the tail; bulbs making them glow..........sodeep

I had EXACTLY the same problem with a friends car i was doing work on.
Your problem is almost certainly a faulty brake light switch. This is a common fault and brings on the dash lights you describe. The switch is located just above the brake pedal and is easy to fit. If you can get the OBD codes read...My guess is it will show up this switch as faulty.
Good luck

The eps light is related to your brake light sensor. The emission light you will need to have the code read. Go to your local auto parts store and have it read.

Yes, check the fuses. It should tell you which it is on the fuse box cover. Or you could just pull all the fuses out. Also you may have a loose earth connection.

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.
