    Bent Over for a SENSOR

    I feel like i have been seriously bent over now......
    MoT failed on my ABS light deciding to make an appearance during the test.

    I had previously had a VCDS scan and the Longitudinal Acceleration Sensor came up with an "implausible signal" fault......so, after finding out the price, i decided to chance it. no luck!!!!

    and now....Audi have just charged me Ł133 for a new one..... GUTTED!!!!!

    has anyone else had this prob and managed to fix it without buying a new one?
    i tried unplugging and plugging back in but had no effect!!

    you could swap the sensors over to see if the fault follows the faulty sensor. That will at least make you feel a bit better that its not wiring or a symptom of another fault.

    Should have asked for a discount..... i rang Backburn Audi on Sat morning for a coolant temp sender as mine was the black type and has an intermitant fault.... after reading on here i knew they were around Ł22 for the newer Green OEM one.... i had Ł25 cash in my pocket so thought i would pick one up on the way home from work, however when i rang them i was quoted Ł33 with a new 'O' ring so i said i'll have to leave it as i don't have enough money on me..... to which the said hang on a min let me see what i can do.... "How does Ł20 sound ?? " so i now have a nice new OEM sender fitted

    they had to order it from the factory as it wasnt one they kept in stock.....so had to take full payment to order it.

    I have the same problem with mine intermittantly, cycle the ignition and it goes for a while, i nearly passed out when i found out how much the sensor is.
    Is your a facelift? If so where was the sensor positioned, behind glove box or under steering column?
