99 passat, problem:S

Asked by Mar 20, 2008 at 02:59 PM about the 1999 Volkswagen Passat 4 Dr GLX V6 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Everytime i start my car, three beeps are heard, abs light stays lit, e-break light flashes along with the oil light. and traction doesnt work or abs. Then sometimes as im driving, or when i start up, it just goes away, and works fine for a bit, and then stops. but most of the time the lights are flashing and the abs or traction isnt working. people told me it could be the abs module, sensor. what i have noticed though. when its working fine, what sets it off, when the traction/asr turns on. then the abs light comes on. if anyone has had a similar problem or might know whats the cause, please it would be of some great help.


As well, another when i lock my car and the alarm is set. before if i opened the driver door while i was inside the alarm would go off,now driver door is the only one that wont trigger the alarm.

I would recommend that you get the car scanned as soon as possible, with all the lights coming on and off, you have some big issues with this car. best of luck

Yes, sounds like either a security fault, ECM problem, or perhaps a faulty gauge cluster.

the abs module is probably faulty from what I have read. I too have the same problem even though the car drives well. I am in the process of researching this and looking into mechanical repairs. If anyone has suggestions please pass them on :))
