    traction / ABS light coming on after 10 mins.

    hi

    my audi a3 1.9 tdi 130bhp.

    from starting the car i would say 8 minuets exactly could be 10 mins the abs / traction control light comes on and stays on until you tun the engine off.
    when i start the car back up its the same process exactly after 8 or 10 mins ( i could do with a stopwatch )

    this has only occured since having cruise control fitted.
    i have took the car back to where the cruise was fitted and it was put on the diagnostics to find a fault " load signal from alternator "

    the fault was cleared but it keeps popping back up.
    im looking for information on this please if anyone has had the same problem etc .....

    i dont want to go out and spend nearly £200 on a alternator if this isnt the problem as my alternator doesnt look that old.

    hope someone can help
    :D
