    Quick MK5 Braking Q

    Hi Guys, I have a quick question. The other evening, driving home from a trip to the shops and was approaching the usual roundabout which is on top of a slight hill. As I'm coming up to the junction, at the foot of the bridge I notice a new zebra crossing, which hadn't been there the week before. Anyway, suddenly realised people were waiting to cross, I was doing 30 and so had to brake quite hard to stop safely, as the car slowed and a split second before the car came to a standstill (had pressed the brake a bit harder at this point to stop) I heard a BEEP! and as I looked down towards the dash, I just caught the sight of a light going out, just under the rev counter needle. Have no clue what it was, I've used the ABS before and never heard the BEEP noise, so just wondering if anyone can shed some light

    Thanks!
