Not starting and message "Depress brake pedal!"

I have a Touareg 2008, which is not cranking or starting, while lights, and electronics get on. There is a message in the display panel which says "Depress brake pedal!". I have tested the battery and it is good. I had the computer reset and the car started, but after 1 or 2 weeks the problem happened again. I need to reset the computer to have the car start but it will work normally for another 1 or 2 weeks and then it won't start. Any help? Thanks

i have same problem ," depress brake pedal" light on dash but won't start at all even after disconnecting battery and brake lights go on and off when pedal pressed . doing my head in anybody help please:
Can you get the car scanned (VCDS)?

There is a fault there (obviously), but insufficient information at this time for anyone to give any assistance.

To help everyone here, please indicate in your profile
1) Where you are from
2) What model Touareg you have (I know you mentioned it in your post - but so much easier if you declare this in your profile).

Maybe, once we know where you reside, more detailed assistance, suggestions re VCDS scanning can be offered.
