Abs, parking error, start stop warning lights

Hi folks, my wives 2011 Touareg has multiple warning lights at present. Every thing seems normal. Apart from the lights on the dash. Brakes have been done and brake sensors are fine. Can anyone suggest some other checks I can make?
Thanks

How is your battery? Low voltage is reported to throw all sorts of codes.

You will have to scan it with VCDS. Not a regular OBDII scanner. And not a generic knock off. The real one from Ross-Tech: Home.

Anything else is a WAG. (Wild *ss Guess)

I took the vehicle to auto tech, and had a diognostic scan, the technician said the speed sensor needs replacing. Cost $240. Iv booked the job in for latter in the week. But today the warning lights are gone and everything is back to normal...! I’m scratching my head, and ain’t doing anything about the speed sensor in the mean time

Just used the vehicle again, and all the warning lights are back. I’m not sure what the speed sensor has to do with abs and parking brake errors. So I will take it in and let them change it.

Speed sensor output is used by most systems of the vehicle, including the ABS system. www.engine-light-help.com/speed-sensor

Just read the link you sent,
Thanks, it makes a lot more sense now, erratic transmission shifts is another symptom, when down hill coasting, which the article touched on. I’m feeling much more reassured about getting the work done now.

We got the speed sensor replaced, and it has fixed the problem. Running as good as ever. Just clocked 201000 kms
