I have had my check engine light on for some time now.

It came on while at idle waiting for a friend. I checked the fluids and no new noises so i figured it would be fine. Well when i jtep on it the brake light now flashes and a beeping sound occurs. I have no idea what the deal is and i just need a vag. But can anyone lend insight?

What year is your car?

Have you checked the brake lights? I know the newer Golf/Jettas will blink a warning if one of your brake bulbs goes out, or if your brake light switch fails. Just a thought. Also, have you checked your brake fluid level?

My car is a 99 and i had not thought to check the brake fluid or bulds because it only blinks when i accelerate hard and then goes off, but I will check thses things tomorrow and post. Thanks for your time
