I got this on Tuesday (not even a week of owning the car) ... is it anything serious?<br>I have booked it in but as usual, the next loan car available is August 9th and I do heavy motorway driving.<p>I noticed this coming up after it rained (for about 2mins!) on Tuesday night and on Wed morning the sign was there. Cycled the engine after an hour or so and it went.<p>Last night, it rained again (again not more than 30mins on and off) and the message was back this morning<br>cycled just now, and its gone.<p>Could rain be causing it? I have to say, I have not done a search on the forum so apologies if it is already there.<p>Thanks

could be a faulty sensor, or bad brake control module. sounds like something is getting wet that shouldn't be. either way, take it to the dealer and let them look at it. brakes are not something you want to worry about <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

well I booked it in but its in for the 9th august because they dont have a loan car available until then<br>they said if i got in first thing tomorrow, then they could plug the car in and check whats up with it (and whether they need new parts)<br>that way I would know if i can drive safely or not but....<br>its too short notice so I wont be able to do this :s<p>I cant stand the level of service and having to wait so long for a loan car.<p>I guess i'l have to risk it till then

for now, make sure your brake/clutch fluid level is full.
