Driving the Passat just like any other day on freeway, when the red display screen beeps three or four times and displays the word "STOP", flashing in big capital letters. Then it changes to "Brake Fault", then it says "Service Manual". The hazard light (little triangle with a ! inside), "ABS" light and "Brake" light all come on in the speedometer area. Nothing in owner's manual about this. Brake fluid level seems normal. Haven't had brakes inspected yet for wear. Tested brakes for ABS failure/lockup on a deserted sidestreet and everything seems fine. Anyone know the REAL solution to this problem, or a suggestion for the least expensive way to find it out?
Thanks for any help.
