VW Touran Fault Code: Brake Servo Failure

Recommended Posts

Neutral Newbie

Can Anyone VW car owners, advise if u had such experience code?

 

The code came out but it goes away after some distance. But this had been coming back a few time already.

 

As no error code when I drive to workshop. They can’t check for me!!!

 

Don’t feel comfortable.

 

Thanks

Don't the mechanics check for cracked vacuum hose when some intermittent "brake servo failure" code occurs?

check if your car brake fluid low or not. if low just top up and monitor a while first before doing any major stuff

I thought mechanic is able to dump out error code from OBD?

all codes are stored in the ODB, just need a scanner for reading them out.  all pro VAG cars are built this way

Cos when I went down, the error code is gone after travelling a while

 

But it comes on & off.

 

So when I am at the workshop, don't see the error code so cant track!

Seem like it is good that not much VW owner got this issues. Cos till date seem like no one have gotten this issues before. Cos no actual case reply.

had been in this situation before with a scirocco, send to w/s and check and was a faulty wire connecting to ABS that causes these fault code. change the wire for $120 and no more error.

Hi I have brake servo failure for months and same as all it comes and goes. So have went to have a check at Servo Autowerkz. As usual they use OBD to detect the errors and found out that it is the vacuum pipe sensor. Cost below $250 including labour. :) hope it helps to all VW owners.

I have a passat b7 1.4 twincharger and I have the exact same problem. Engine light comes on, brake servo failure. It comes on and off. When it says brake servo failure, the engine does not work properly and gearbox doesn't change properly. When the problem dissappears, everything works fine. I have changed the vacuum pipe sensor, but the problem is still there. At the workshop they can't see any fault codes when the car works fine.
