Parking Brake fault


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I have not been on the forum for a while. My D3 has been getting a few problems, so I took it down to the local independent for a diagnosis. A new coolant sensor has sorted most things but I still have a problem with my parking brake. I think there used to be a Vag Com page but I can't find this now. Please could anyone tell me what the fault below from the Vag-Com log might mean? most of the time the parking brake works just fine, sometimes it does not release but by operating the switch a couple of times its all ok again. I've had this fault ever since the stealer fitted new rear pads about 2 years ago.

I don't know if this relates but before I picked up my car (a 2003 D3 4.2) I know there had been some work on the parking break. I believe it may have been a recall. I do not have any more info than that but it might be worth a phone call to a main dealer to see if there is a recall on your car.

The only other thing I know is that you have to enter the correct pad depth into the computer when you replace the pads.
