the vin SCBBE53W76C033028

some code readers will not read ABS faults so just to make sure what make and model scan tool you have?

Just want to know if it is a common problem and where to start to look...

usually there is a fault with the antilock brake system. Wheel Speed sensors, wheel hubs, abs module . VAG COM is a scan tool of choice to get an accurate scan.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0KZ-00FU-00001

This link above is the scan tool of choice with your lap top its like the factory scan tool but lots less in price.
