So a new issue popped up lately. Whenever I make right turns the brake warning chimes 3 times flashes the brake light. Says Stop and brake fault. Anyone experience this? 05 Passat TDI wagon. BSM delete. 5 spd swap.

New pads and rotors couple months ago. This just started. 230,000 on the car. Maybe a wire issue to the pads?

Low on fluid or bad fluid level sensor.

Fluid level is fine, first thing I checked. Once I pull the wheels and check wiring Iíll reply with the findings. Iím betting the wiring is the culprit. Stay tuned.

Pad wear wiring faults will only light up the amber pad wear indicator light. I'd check the fluid level sensor wiring and the parking brake lever switch. You should also scan the ABS module, but most abs faults will also light up the "ABS" light.

+1. The low pad warning is just a light, nothing more.

I had that on one of my B5.5's - I swapped the fluid reservoir sensor, mine had an intermittent issue showing low fluid when it wasn't low.

So I messed with the reservoir, tapping and shaking it around a bit. Seems to have fixed the issue. I guess the level sensor was the culprit. Been a couple days and no warning.
