    Mine came on when my alternator failed, it drove fine for a bit but I noticed the window wipers were slow and the electric windows were slow, I had to replace in the end, or it could just be your battery. They can check if its the battery or alternator worth getting this done first no point wasting on a battery only to find its the alternator.

    It might be that the alternator belt is slipping? Can you adjust the tension on the A3/S3 alternator?
