VW Polo ABS light - Dragan
My ABS light on dashboard is sometimes on, and I don't know what is going on. Can somebody tell me where to find some user manual for VW Polo, for things like this one?

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.

Hi - Find a good independent garage with the proper diagnostic software. This will find the problem quickly and I hope cheaply!

Does the brake fluid level light come on at the same time/or just the abs light?

Only the ABS light goes on. All other lights are off.

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.
