Passat brake lights - StuartA
I have a 2002 Passat , I have had the ABS and ESP lights coming up , and Engine Workshop also . when looked at on the computer the faults are shown as "implausible" . I noticed that the brake lights don't work ? One of the bulbs was out , on replacing it they still don't work , I heard these alarms and brake light faults are related???

Brake switches are a known problem on VWs, cost £8.50 from the main dealer. 2 different types, one purple, one black?

many thanks , I had figured out it was probably the brake switch , but had difficulty finding a decent circuit diagram , the one in the Haynes manual seems a bit too simple
