purchased a vw passat 55 model 3 months ago for 6k
the passat has a push button handbrake
for the last few days i have been getting a "parking brake fault" signal on the screen
and i have 3 warning lights coming on
(1) the EPC light which has something to do with the petrol engine apparently
(2) the yellow P with a line through it which i gues implies parking brake fault
(3) the little yellow car with squiggly lines indicating skidding (another i am told is to do with the parking brake)
has anyone had this issue and what did you do
reason i ask is i went to show this to the local vw garage and they said the abs pump needs replacing and the total for parts and labour is going to set me back 1.5k
yep, 1.5k for a car i purchased 3 months ago for 6k
my issue is, the car has an abs fault warning signal - but that light does not come on
anyone help me out here because the vw garage quoted the abs pump part as costing 1k but when i check it out online they seem to be selling (new ones mind not second hand) for £200-£300
any help would be greatly appreciated and a paltry few reward points are on offer for those interested in that sort of thing
