My ABS idiot light comes on after I get going. I let it be for a while since I figure that it needs servicing. However, everynow and then I can hear (and feel) the ABS kicking in and pumping the brakes when I am not braking. It is anoying! Not to mention that I think it caused my brakes to lock up and did a 180 going around a curve on a wet road. Has anyone run into a problem like this?
If I were you I would take it to the dealer and hope they fix it for you. My light has been on for awhile now and it turns out my abs pump is bad. What really sucks is it is out of warranty and the part is $1200
Hey Les, did you talk with Dave ( vw parts @ fairfax ) Can't he help you on that price?? Damn that's big bucks.....did you try and ask vwmafia?? He's done me right on a few items!! I'd try and get one used before paying that kinda money......good luck to both of ya'll on getting that fixed!!!
