Just bought a used 2002 Beetle w 31,000 miles, 5 speed manual trans for my wife. It's extremely clean, used sparingly only in the summer months & stored in a heated garage during the winter (I live in the Upper Pennisula of Michigan). The only problem I have been having is the dashboard "brake " light goes on/off intermittently. Doesn't seem to occur when I'm braking or if the parking brake is engaged. I looked at the brake fluid & it looks like it's at the right level, but it's hard to eyeball. I don't think the brake fluid has ever been changed. My brake pads & sliders look like new & the car brakes really well. Any ideas other than to take it into a dealer?
