Do you mean that it comes on at odd times when driving or sometimes it just doesn't go off from starting up?
I have no VW experience, but abs generally checks itself after start up.
If the light doesn't go off from start up, it suggests the control unit or its wiring has a fault.
If it comes on after driving for a while it suggests a problem with either the sensors on the suspension, the rotors on the hubs or a connector plug on the sensor wiring.
There may also be a fuse/pressure pump problem.
I would go with Doug on this.Get the experts to check it.
It may be something simple. like the sensor lead to connector on strut/suspension mount which you could look at yourself..Any signs of chaffing/broken wire/dirty connection will cause it..But if all looks fine.Best to get it checked out.
Vauxhall has announced that its new city car will be called the Viva, reviving a much-loved badge. We look at ten classic car comebacks and wonder if the fans got what they wanted, or if they’d have been better off leaving the badge in the bottom drawer.
