I disconnected the battery today and once it was reconnected the ESP and a red steering light came on and won't go away.
I've done some research and I've tried all the tricks like turning the wheel to the left and right and driving and such but it's still there.
The steering is still powered.
Had my parts dealer friend do a diagnostic and no faults were found. This wasn't a vagcom cable, but one of the £1000 diagnostic machines for all cars that he sells to garages.
I think the battery may be on it's way out. It's at 55% capacity, unserviceable. Not sure if that's connected, but either way I'm getting that sorted tomorrow.
Thanks a lot,
