i checked the bentley brake system obd. if i understand which brake lights you mean, i think sharky is right:
___________________________________
If the ABS warning light -K47- (item no. 3, "abs" in a circle) and the warning light for brake system -K118- (item no. 4, "!" in a circle) light up, the ABS system is faulty. Account for differences in braking behavior.

WARNING!

When the ABS warning light -K47- and the warning light for brake system -K118- are lit, the rear wheels can lock early during braking.

can you get access to a vagcom?

I had this same fault code come up when air was in the system which caused a faulty ABS sensor. This is one of the main reasons I tell people to flush DOT4 out every 2 years to prevent air or debris from entering the system. Have your local mechanic or dealership check the fault codes because both the affected sensors should be covered under warranty.

I think you are right...the sensor is acting up. I put some fluid in just prior to the problem. I also opened the cap that has the slot on it....that could have allowed air to get into the system....is there anything I can do about that??? Thank you all for your replies...it helped me solve but not correct this problem. Thanks!

if there is air in the system all you have to do is a complete flush. i recommend getting the motive power bleeder for a really fast way to flush the entire system.

basically set up the motive powerbleeder to the resevoir, have the car on jack stands with the wheels off, and i believe a 13 or 11 mm box wrench. then pump the pressure to 20 psi on the motive power bleeder, then start at the right rear, open the bleed screw and let the fluid flow into a bottle, do this until the fluid changed to the new color, most likely a clearish yellow. then go to the left rear, then the right front then the left front. then your done.

if its a sensor, go to dealership

It was the sensor and they are going to replace it under warranty. I did need new rear pads and rotors though and they replaced the brake fluid....$558....I'm satisfied....though 558 is 558.
