I have the same problem. Some times mine will flash or flicker, like there is a short. I was told that it is the brake sencor, located down under the parking brake. hope this helps!!

To add brake fluid to a 2006 Jetta, you will have to take the cap off the brake fluid reservoir. Fill to the appropriate level with DOT 3 brake fluid and screw the cap back on.

The fluid for the clutch comes from the brake fluid. After the brake master cylinder, there is a clutch master cylinder which takes fluid from the brakes. Fill up the Brake master cylinder.

Is the brake fluid level low in your brake master cylinder in the engine compartment ?

If you are speaking of the brake light on the dash, you may be low on brake fluid. Just fill the master cylinder with DOT 3 brake fluid, and the light should not come on anymore.

From the 1996 owners manual (which probably also applies to your '95): This light functions for both the parking brake and the foot brake systems. The light comes on when the parking brake is applied, and also warns of a low brake fluid level. If the light comes on while the engine is running with the parking brake not applied, stop the vehicle and perform the following: 1. Check the brake fluid level. Add brake fluid as necessary. See ''Brake fluid'' in the ''Do-it-yourself operations'' section. 2. If the brake fluid level is correct, check the warning system.

It uses brake fluid in the brake fluid reservoir. The clutch fluid (brake fluid) is fed by the brake fluid reservoir. The clutch fluid reservoir is just beneath the brake fluid reservoir. So, add fluid to the brake fluid reservoir to fill the clutch fluid, also.

The parking brake light comes on when you engage the parking brake. Pull the parking brake release handle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- the brake light also comes on if the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder is low ( in your engine compartment )

Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir, if it is low you have a leak somewhere.
