Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer

have you scanned for codes?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I did but I was not sure what they meant. Off memory I think one was an emissions. I'm sure I took a screen shot of results
VW Mechanic: eauto, The Car Guy replied 10 months ago

did the scan the brake / abs system?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I am just looking for the screen shot now or I could do another scan
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I'm new to ob11 scanning,
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
If it is the abs/brake then what will I need to look into ?
VW Mechanic: eauto, The Car Guy replied 10 months ago

it sounds like its the brake light switch that has failed that would cause all the problems but a simple obd scan of the abs system will tell if there are any codes

For sure...yesterday I disconnected/reconnected the new break light switch & the epc when out & all was fine but it only lasted for 10 minutes driving...I tried this twice with same results
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
When it goes out I have breaklights, cruise control etc but not when it comes back on
VW Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

What you've shown above are emissions readiness monitors. What you're looking for is DTC's. It looks like you're using a generic OBDII code reader which will just be capable of reading fault codes from the engine controller. An actual scan tool may be necessary to diagnose the problem.
