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
