    TDi owners - ever seen a warning message flash up whilst starting?

    Hi guys,

    As title, I have seen, or rather not seen a very quick warning message and I think beep flash up on dash when starting.

    It seems after this the car has not run so good, maybe, trying to eliminate things.

    If you have had this and know what it says, please tell me

    Thanks!

    After an Audi tech disconnected my battery I had an ESP warning that did that.
    Other than that, just the usual Passenger Airbag warning.

    This is normal for the ESP to come on after battery-disconnect, it is also noted in the handbook that this will happen.

    This will go back after driving a for meters and turning the steering wheel.

    You may need to link up to VAGCOM to diagnose if the error is picked up in the ECU, which it normally will be

    The new ECU update applied after the injector recall, seems to do this (accompanied by a long beep) although it doesn't seem to mean or indicate anything.
    TDI PD170 S-Line Sportback... 191.2bhp & 290lb/ft torque @ standard with an iffy turbo! No idea with the new one or Shark Stage 1 remap installed, DPF off Stage 1 ready to go, Suspension & wheels to be fitted... Still....

    I get an "ESP Fault, please see driver's handbook" with warning beep on practically every ignition switch on. But there is no fault as it goes off straight away.

    Guys, we have had a few threads on this in the past.
    Generally when you get a quick warning in start up with ESP etc and it clears straight away, it tends to mean your battery is on its way and something to do with the voltage.
    Everyone including myself who had this problem upgraded their battery to a new one and viola, no more faults on start up.
    Have not had the problem for nearly a year now.

    A great battery to upgrade to, especially for the TDi is a Varta Silver E44. Excellent battery, highly recommended

    Got it!

    After it not doing it apart from each time I videoed it, today I got it

    ESP Fault!

    Please see driver's handbook


    It also drove fine after this, so probably just imagined it was having an affect.

    Change the battery mate, it will soon cure your problem, I had the exact same thing about a year ago.

    Nigel has kindly given a link to the recommended battery. That is the site I ordered mine from. Excellent battery!
