I have a VW Passat TDI 130 BHP (2003) model - I have been getting the glow plugs warning light come up as well as the electronic stability light (ESP) warning light. I have checked the brake lights at the back of the vehicle and neither rear left or right brake lights are working. Only the higher middle centre brake light works.

My daughters 2002 Tahoe has no brake lights. Bulbs are good checked the fuse under the hood=good, also checked the fuse under the back seat labeled brake, it was good also. Now the ABS light and hand brake dash warning lights are on. My guess is pulling the fuse under the back seat tripped a code for the warning dash lights. So how do I reset the dash warning lights? By the way, still no brake lights...turn, direction, and running lights are good. Also the brake light over the back window

I have a VW touran diesel 1.9. Recently there was a brake pad warning light indicated on my dash board, so I took it to my closest gargae to check. They replaced two new brake discs and the brake pads. However, they could not find a way to reset the warning light. So even though it is fixed, the warning light is still on my dash board. Do you know if it can be reset without going to the dealer?
