    Question Desperate times; car unusable :(

    Got an issue with car at present - 54 plate 3.2 quattro 3 door manual. Was driving home the other evening and when I got to a roundabout near home and was slowing to filter into traffic the ESP warning light came on, stayed on, and the car stalled. Managed to limp it home the last few hundred yards but it wouldn't idle at all.

    Tried it a few more times since and same thing every time, the ESP light wont go out and the car wont idle at all. When I give it some throttle to try and keep it going it's very intermitent and usually just stalls after a while.

    I tried pulling the ESP fuse but that made no difference, other than flagging a brake problem aswell.

    I've not got access to VCDS so can't pull off any codes at present, and not in a position to drive the car anywhere for diagnosis. The ABS light doesn't come on so I don't think it's an ABS sensor, wondering what other controllers/sensors it may be. Has anyone had anything similar occur and have any ideas what I need to do. I'm guessing for a start I'm going to have to get it towed to my nearest dealer

    Any advice, tips, ways to get round it so I can actually drive the car somewhere, etc. would be appreciated - it's a bit too cold and windy to be going everywhere on my pushbike

    Big thanks to chris.vincent3 today who popped up to take a look at the motor.

    On first scan there were some old MAF sensor errors aswell as the following;

    Address 03: ABS Brakes Labels: 1K0-907-379-MK60-A.lbl
    Part No: 1K0 907 379 E
    Component: ESP ALLRAD MK60 0104
    Coding: 0021128
    Shop #: WSC 06314 000 00000
    VCID: 346159C75732E3B8F54


    1 Fault Found:
    00668 - Supply Voltage Terminal 30
    008 - Implausible Signal

    We tried clearing it and it did go away, but after a drive round the block it came back. This time however the problem of stalling didn't come back. Wondering whether the old MAF errors together with the above had caused the stalling. The MAF errors didn't come back after clearing so they look okay.

    Anyhow, we did an ABS test and that ran through clean so it doesn't look like as problem with the ABS itself, just part of the ESP set-up. Despite the above error coming back, the ESP warning symbol didn't light up again, so at least that it something.

    Next plan of action it to get it in the air, whip off the wheels and give everything a good clean, hopefully it's nothing more than a bad connection.

    Has anyone else suffered from the above error?

    Could it just be your maf that's faulty my 3.2 threw up the abs/ ESP fault when I disconnected it to see I my car would idle better however I did not have vcds at the time .

    I am going to give the MAF a decent clean while I'm at it too. Thing was the MAF errors were very old and went away after being cleared without coming back, whereas the ABS error came back. Still, wont hurt to clean it up while I'm at it

    Your welcome mate!

    If you have no luck with cleaning connectors then it looks like it could be the MAF itself, if its anything like previous cars I've owned with MAF problems they deteriorate over time so could be the start of what your experiencing.

    I replaced the MAF on mine. It was £90 odd. A Bosch one. They took my old one in that px thing they do.

    TBH if it had maf errors it maybe time for a new, can only help, they don't recommend cleaning them tbh as it has been known to affect the readings.
