2007 VW Polo 1.6 Beeping and flashing park brake sign

Post by Kwepas.h »

Hi.

My 2007 vw polo 1.6 trendline (polo bujwa) is randomly beeping and flashing the park brake sign and it shows no errors or alarms on a diagnostic machine.

Please assist.

Mine had done this before and the battery terminals were loose, after I tightened them it stopped.

Also mine recently started doing that after I changed my rims and one of my tyres is a different size so I think it's that or when the guys were fitting my rims they could have moved one of the sensors.

So now when I'm driving on the freeway and drive more than 120km it flashes and beeps

So check the battery terminals first and if you recently changed the tyres then it could be that.

I have a 2008 polo and that's why the lights started lights started flashing for me

Did you check the brake fluid level? Maybe its low enough to the point were as you drive and the fluid moves around causing the light to randomly come on.
