    Abs + Esp light on (random times)

    Hi all.
    My asb and esp light have started coming on together.
    Just gave a quick vagcom.
    The code said something about hydraullic modulator?? I had the battery cover off today, to put a surge protector on... Do you think i could have disturbed "THE" fuse??
    I just had a quick peek and couldnt see anything amiss.

    cheers
    Callum

    Have you checked the fault code against the ross.tech vag.com wiki ? (there'e a link to it somewhere on here)

    might give you a clearer indication of the problem

    Yeah the code is 01276 - hydraullic modulator intermittant fault

    After some searching, i found the 3x 30amp fuses (ontop of the battery) can be related to the fault.
    Popped them out for a visual check, and they all have marks.. like they have been arcing out??.

    Anyhow i rotated them all and swapped them round. so ill see if it cures the fault.

    Hopefully i wont have to fork out for a new pump or controll unit

    Have a look at the multi plug near the back of the battery that links to the fuses as mine did the same, this plug controls the fans to so keep a eye on the temp
