View Full Version : I got a couple new lights today! =D

Along with my pretty Air Bag light, my ABS light decided to come on and my Brake light decided to start blinking at me. [:)] I'm guessing it's time to replace the pads and possibly a bad sensor. Any takers? I have a 98.5 1.8tqms, are there 4 sensors - one per wheel? My Brake light is blinking though so that makes me think it's one of the rear sides but I'm not sure.

your car doesnt have brake pad sensors

Hmm... Yeah, didn't think so but I didn't know. Anyway, do you have any idea as to what could cause these two lights to come on at the same time?

Either your ABS control module is out or you have a bad speed sensor. Vag it, you should get a code for a speed sensor but i think if you cant communicate with abs at all your control module is done. You can have it rebuilt at...


Hope that helps, by the way I saw you driving in corvallis today, you were stopped at a light turning on to 23rd and I passed you this morning, my car is the same color as yours.

bOOOOsted - will do, thanks man.

JDBG1.8t - I have a vag but I gotta find the right software to work with it, I haven't had any time to mess around with it lately.
It was on 25th, I thought you were a fellow AZer!!! Love the car man, sounds amazing. Do you go to school here are OSU or were you just visiting from Portland? There are a few more of us AZer's here in Corvallis - csho (Casey) and Mike Levin (not on AZ much - he's got a black k04'd A4 with an S4 front) and a few others I think... If you live down here you should join Casey and I in trying to get an Audi/VW meet planned. I think the idea is to have a bbq, spirited drive in the hills and whatever. Should be a good time. PM me and let me know.
Oh yeah, and I knew your car was catless!! I could smell it as you passed by haha
