Customer Question

Have a 2007 passat wagon. Jumpstarted sister in laws car and now I have an electric parking brake fault. The operator manual is almost worthless as to the info on the fuses. I do have a blown 20 amp fuse in the F15 slot but nothing I can find says what it goes to. The electric brake engages when the brake button is pressed and the car will not move, is disengages when pressed again and drives normally except for the chime and flashing brake fault messages lighting up. That is in the engine compartment fuse box, not the left or right side dash fuse boxes.

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.

.

The F15 fuse in the under hood fuse box is not related and possibly a short in the CAN BUS, (network) for the different modules.

.

It sounds like the EPB needs to be reset. You will want to check and replace any fuses that are bad and then do the reset procedure on it.

.

I can send that to your email address for a little as possible, if you like.
