2001 VW Jetta GLX 2.8L ABS indicator lights on and engine occasionally bucking/stalling

Justin you might have to run a computer diagnosis on your car.
I feel there are a couple of short circuits on your wire ring especially on the ABS system. one of your brake ware, abs sensors is constantly in contact with your cars peripherals thus causing an electric feed back which interpreted as brake failure by the cars computer system. How ever this malfunction now acts directly on the cars Main relays, which cause your car to loose connection to the rest of the ignition system, If problem is un attended this could fuse the computer box.
Find someone to revise your cars wires.

Guages malfunctioning I have a 1998 318i and today all guages on instrument panel have stopped working. Car still starts & drives but the indicator on the fuel guage, speedometer, rev counter & energy control are pointing to 0, and engine coolant guage's needle has fallen to the right of the red on the dial. A fan seems to be on somewhere inside the dashboard even when car is switched off. Also earlier the ABS light & warning light for ASC & DSC comes on & stays on. Help!!

My 2003 Jetta GLX (V6) starts with a very low idle 800-900 regardless of the outside temperature and maintain at 850 or so during normal operating temperature. The idle is too slow to kick-in the charging system and I have to tap the gas pedal to 1500 RPM, otherwise, I will have a Battery light indicating low voltage or Alternator Workshop. I believe the idle should initially be at 1500 rpm, especially when the outside temperature is around 0 degree. Everyone of my cars, idle fast at 15

My dashboard doesnt work. Everything is on zero. The car runs fine and starts fine but I have no idea how fast Im going or how much gas I have left. The service engine soon light is on and the ABS light.

On the dash idiot lights, ASB, Trax Loc and Service Engine warning lights stay on constantly and have for a long time.
