Hopefully someone can help me...
I have a 1997 1.8t, no esp button or light on the dash. However there is a noise coming from the front of the car when the wheels let go. I first noticed it the other day as I pulled out on a roundabout, the wheels started to spin when i put it in to second gear. I have tried several atempts on private roads since then to light the wheels up to see if I have esp, the wheels do light up but not as easy as i would have thought.
I've had cars with traction control before and genearlly you can feel the engine hold back when the system is activated. The a3 sounds as if a system is being activated but nothing apears to happen, is this my abs system flipping out because the wheels are at different speeds or do i have esp?
The sound is very similar to the abs sound when you plant the brake pedal.
Anyone else with the same model got any ideas?
thanks in advance
