    ABS/ Braking problem

    More S3 woes..

    After about an hour of driving the esp light started flashing the the car felt like it lost power so I decided to pull over. But on pressing the brake the ABS was going mental and you could hear grinding and buzzing noises, sounded like the abs pump wanted to eat itself!! Tried to drive off again but when I went over 20mph the same esp light came back on again. Turned the car off and let it sit for a while and it was fine again. The only codes that came up were 01130 ABS operation fault and brake light switch intermittant. Could it be related or has anyone had this problem before?
    The car is a 01 S3 AMK by the way
    Thanks

    put a brake light switch on car first
    then retry
    cancel faults and roadtest then recheck fault memory
