I could not find a specific VW related explanation for the code, just the same vague ABS reference. This should not cause a CEL, but as has been shown over the years here, ABS module issues can trigger all types of cluster lights and problems. I would simply disconnect the ABS electrical plug, clear the code and see if it comes back. The ABS will not work, but with this code, I suspect they do not work now. If the CEL stays off, you know it is ABS module related. If it comes back, another scan with VCDS might result in a "correct" code.

I did have another abs module installed a little over a year ago and the light is on, when hit the brakes hard i can feel it pulsating but then i did notice the code of the module i have in there now is different from the original one....could that be the problem also (maybe it need to be recoded)?
