I have a 2001a fabulous Passat v6. 158000 miles. The display shows the word "STOP" at startup that goes off after about 5 seconds and the display goes back to normal. I have checked the owners manual, finding nothing. Any ideas?

This forum has been a fabulous find for me. Thanks so much for any help you can be.

I had the STOP message along with the brake light and it was due to low brake fluid level. I topped off the brake fluid and solved the problem.

that's just one trigger for the stop messages.

things to check visually:
-while car is cold, check coolant level in the reservoir
-brake pads could be too thin, thus causing the code, change immediately.
-low brake fluid, fill, and procede to check brakes for too much wear
-check your dipstick oil level.

NEVER drive your car with a stop message. it's bad stuff.
