Hello forum. I have recently purchased a 2007 VW rabbit 2.5

I love it. I have wanted one for a while and this one came up for a good deal.

No issues when I bought it. After driving for about 2-3 weeks I am getting the error codes 0778 (Steering wheel sensor) and 01316 (Brake control module)

I have a dash light on with a yellow steering wheel. Online indicated I should change the steering sensor, so I changed that. It didnt fix anything. not sure where to go from here as a new brake module is 900+ Canadian

Any insights? Very happy with my VW, not happy with this..... hoping I can avoid extra expense and fix myself

Had the same problem with my 2009. The fix was a new ABS control module. This item is under a recall for both a software update and replacement if the software fails to fix it. Contact your local VW service department. Doesn't matter if you bought the car used they should honor the recall.
