Does it make a difference if you increase RPM's when stopped at the traffic light? If so, you have a water flow issue. If not, most likely your radiator fan is not working properly.

Check for a hole in the brake system including calipers, lines, and all cylinders. Booster or master cylinder could be bad. Or, you're right. It could be a faulty ABS sensor. You will have to troubleshoot to be sure. Hope you get an A in your workshop.

The drive cycle is as follows
For all OBD2 VW's

OBD-II Drive Cycle Stages
The OBD-II Drive Cycle is an eight-stage course, as illustrated in the
chart on page 3. An explanation of each step is provided below.
Stage 1: Cold Start-The ECM determines the presence of a cold start
by comparing the engine coolant temperature to the ambient air
temperature during startup. The engine is considered cold when:
• Engine coolant temperature is below 122°F (50°C).
• Engine coolant and intake air temperatures are within 11°F (6°C) of
each other at startup.
During this period, the O2S heater, misfire, AIR, fuel system, and EVAP
monitors run.

Stage 2: Idle 2½ Minutes-Turn the air conditioning (A/C) and
headlights on to help the misfire monitor-the additional electrical loads
help even out combustion pulses. During this period, the O2S heater,
AIR, EVAP, misfire, and possibly fuel system (if operating in closed loop)
monitors run.

Stage 3: Accelerate-Prior to accelerating, turn off the A/C and
headlights (if possible). Open the throttle halfway until you reach
55 MPH (89 KPH). During acceleration, the misfire, fuel system, and
EVAP monitors run.

Stage 4: Steady State Cruise-During this portion of the cycle, the
O2S, AIR, EGR, EVAP, misfire, and fuel system monitors run.

Stage 5: Decelerate-Gradually coast down without applying the
brakes. Also, on manual transmission vehicles, remain in high gear and
do not press the clutch. During this period, the EGR, EVAP, and fuel
system monitors run.

Stage 6: Accelerate-Apply ¾ throttle until reaching 60 MPH (97 KPH).
During acceleration, the misfire, fuel system, and EVAP monitors run.

Stage 7: Steady State Cruise-During this period, the CAT, O2S, AIR,
EGR, EVAP, misfire, and fuel system monitors run.

Stage 8: Decelerate-Gradually coast down without applying the
brakes. Also, on manual transmission vehicles, remain in high gear and
do not press the clutch. During this portion of the Drive Cycle, the EGR,
EVAP, and fuel system monitors run.

You can try this a couple times, but if it doesn't work you should go to a VW specialty shop like the dealer or a shop that does mostly European cars and they can use the scan tool to force the car through readiness.

abs light is on because there is a fault recorded in the abs system. a scan tool will be needed to get the recorded fault from the on board computor. It has nothing to do with the brake pads. It is usually an electrical problem.
