My ABS, brake and oil lights keep coming on at the same time, flashing for a few minutes and then going back off. This happens very randomly, sometimes lasting for seconds, sometimes lasting for up to 20 min. It doesn't seem to matter how long the car has been running. Now the tach is also dropping to zero as soon as the other warning lights come on and remains there until the lights go back off. Any ideas?


Its exactly the abs module! and its keeping the ecu from communicating with the rest of the car, when you remove the module your tac will come back alive and the oil light will turn off. There is way to trick the ecu to thinking the abs module is wor ... 1999 Volkswagen Passat

I have a rexton 290 turbo diesel. year 2005, automatic transmission. It has had a noise coming from the left side front wheel. The noise sounds like a metal to metal scratching noise. Light noise like a spring subbing against the rim when the wheel turns. However the noise is intermittent. It comes on at random. Nothing to do with pressing the brake petal or with accellerating. It seems independent of these. however it seems to come on when the steering is turned to the right. It is a very inter

Possible electric short. Lights dim on occasion(all lights, including headlights), clock/radio display went out for a couple of weeks then came back on and now the rear passenger brake light is out. Also when it's wet outside I can hear a loud squel coming from the front passenger tire (I think) that seems to have something to do with the lights dimming. It only squeals once every few mins and it only happens when it's wet. I hope this makes sense...

When going at hwy speeds it will lose power, and the lights on the dash come on like it is going to die, but it will power through. This lasts for about 5 sec and then runs normal agian. This seems to happen 3 to 4 times over about a 2 min time frame, but may not happen for months at a time. Time of year and weather conditions don't seem to matter.

Hi, My S Reg Golf will not turn the engine over and start. When we turn the key, there is just a clicking, tappy tappy sound from around the base of the steering column. THe rapidity of the clicking (around 3-5 clicks a second I would guess) does not diminish although the battery seems to be getting low now that I have tried. The various lights that come on after I turn the key to the off position are the handbrake, battery, (a couple of others) but most of all the 'check brake fluid' light c

It could take 5 min or 5 days to get it to run.I changed the distributor,all sensors except temperature and speed sensor.Checked the wires for corrosion and they seemed ok.A couple of years ago I changed the computer and ignition switch. Is it possible that a wire in the dash pannel got pinched or I an missing a bad wire or ground some where.I also changed the neutral safety switch because I had no backup lights, I still ha

It seemed to come on after I idadvertently overfilled the power steering fluid reservoir. I drained some oil out, but the light is still on. I disconnected the + battery lead, but the ligt stayed on.
