    Cool esp light on looking for somone in the know :)

    just purchased a 53 plate facelift a3 2.0 tdi (bkd) had esp light on so was just hoping a simple fault code and just change of a sensor.plugged in snap on solus scanner and getting codes,00810 sensor 1/2 for brake pressure no or wrong adaption,00778 steering angle sensor wrong or no adaption (g85) and 01423 lateral acceleration sensor (g200)no or wrong adaption. all codes wont clear!heard about abs modules causing hassle but they seem to bring up 01425??not sure if cars been worked on or anything the guy just said it came on 1 day.is there a way of re adapting these sensors and why all 3 codes?its puzzled me

    Not sure what you mean by 53 plate facelift ! Anyway, have a look at this site and see if it helps. Has the car been in an accident ?

    Send a PM to NHN on this forum. He sells the genuine cable and you download the program from the R-T website. Costs about £250 which includes all updates and support for life.

    Meerkat, where abouts are you based?
    Sounds like you need to perform a basic setting in the abs module to resolve the issue, I usually get this after I have installed a cruise control kit

    As Ash said before mate, you need to perform basic settings, and the only way by doing so us with VCDS.
    You have two options, but a genuine cable from NHN or travel to someone who has VCDS, even if it means an hour or so drive.
    Both options will still be a lot cheaper than taking to the dealers, and then they will probably say you need a new ABS module, lol.

    guess il have to go for a long drive then or wait until i can afford the cable.is it possible to check if timings out with the vag?have slightly lumpy idle and read a lot about timing problems being the cause.just taken belt cover off and can see rear cam is in a differant position from what it has been at some point as circle marks from where 13mm bolts have been before!be nice to check before messing about taking all covers off and pining the cams

    Nigel(NHN) is an official supplier of the cable, his price is roughly £250 give or take a few quid. Many of us here have bought from him including myself.

    That guy on eBay, that will be for you going to him! No one with a genuine cable would loan it out for £35 unless you also give a £250 deposit to cover loss or damage.
