Brake Abs Warning Light problem #1
The vehicle involved is a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta. The VIN of the problem Jetta is 3VWKZ71K59_. My abs light came on when I was in cruise control at 60 mph and knocked me out of cruise control.

Brake Abs Warning Light problem #2
The car involved is a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta. I am an aerospace engineering consultant. My 09 Jetta had rear passenger caliber, rotor, and brake line replace at 10,000 miles for excessive wear. 1st noticed when going around corners applying brakes a dragging effect would come from rear passenger brake. Dealer could not give any reason for this happening and replace rotor, caliper, and brake line at 10k. Summer time weather. Car exhibited the smell of hot brakes and rubber several times between the next failure. The next failure occurred at 34000 mile. Driver side rotor was so pitted and warped from excessive heat dealer replace rotor and caliper and gave no reason problem. Summer time weather. At 37080 mile on Feb 10 2011 at 4:30 am with outside temperature around 20f degrees I released parking brake and started driving to job site. The car felt like it was straining to accelerate. Within two miles from the house the car pulled violently to left , the abs light came on and the car stopped into oncoming traffic and would not move. I shut the esp system off car still work not move forward. I drove in reverse back to house about 1. 5 miles. When I looked at rear brake rotor on driver side since it was still dark the rotor was glowing red like the burner on electric stove. Smell of burning materials was in the air. Called dealer which is ancria of san antonio, TX. Dan minor the service manager thinks it was the emergency brake cable spring not releasing brake. Car was dropped of Friday Feb 11th 2011 at dealer. A case has been open with vw engineering. Vw dealer is clueless as to why this is happening. I suspect the good german engineers are too proud to say we have a problem fix what seems to be a well documented problem with 09 Jettas. Someone is going to get hurt and no one is listening. Thankfully the dealer has been replacing things to date. This problem occurred on Thursday, Feb. 10, 2011.
